Book Review:: So Long, Insecurity by Beth Moore

27 Apr

Beloved women’s speaker and author Beth Moore’s latest book, So Long, Insecurity (Tyndale), is her most personal book to date.  Moore, who has helped countless ladies break free, get out of pits, and dive deep into Scripture with studies on Jesus, Paul, David, and Esther, is now combating a stronghold in the lives of many women—insecurity.

Moore describes So Long, Insecurity as “one woman’s quest for a real, lasting, soul-changing security” in God, instead of finding that security in self or others.  The first part of the book identifies insecurity by its roots stemming from instability in the home, a significant loss, rejection, dramatic change, personal limitations, personal disposition, our culture, and pride.  Moore further explains these “roots of insecurity” and like always uses a ton of Scripture to build her case.

While the book magnifies a woman’s vulnerabilities, particularly involving image, Moore urges women to “press through the discomfort” so that the reader no longer has to “live in denial and bondage.” Being a woman who battles a ton of insecurity, I didn’t just read So Long, Insecurity objectively; I took Moore’s advice to heart.  I saw myself in so many of her illustrations; I knew my heart was ready for a revolution.

Fortunately, Moore doesn’t just identify and define all areas of insecurity she’s also givse us a look at a man’s insecurities.  She also offers practical advice saturated in Scripture that allows women to immediately begin their journeys toward freedom.  I cannot more highly recommend this book for every woman out there who hates her reflection in the mirror, who is exhausted from the illusion of perfectionism, who thinks she is unworthy of love, who was born on planet Earth.

So Long, Insecurity has tremendously impacted my life, the way I think about myself, and the way I know that God relates to me.  Because of the life-changing content and prayer exercises, the book can take a while to read.  But, remember, insecurity took years to take hold, so it won’t just magically disappear overnight.  Reading this book changed my life and had emboldened me to live a life secure in the love of God.  If you are a captive in the prison of insecurity, then So Long, Insecurity is your key to freedom.

Beth Moore Says So Long to Insecurity + Book Tour

2 Feb

Tyndale House, Carol Stream IL–“Our gender has arguably battled insecurity since Eve ripped the first leaf from a tree in the Garden, but our culture has turned a wound into a gorge,” Beth Moore acknowledges. “We desperately need a new way to look at ourselves, and my hope is that we will find authentic help and discover that our strength is in our God-given, unshakable security.”

Tyndale House Publishers is proud to present So Long, Insecurity by Beth Moore, a powerful message that tackles the topic of women’s struggles with insecurity. The marketing campaign will kick off in conjunction with the book’s February 2, 2010 street date with a CCN prayer simulcast followed by a four-city book tour.

Beth Moore personally identifies with the issue of insecurity, admitting she has struggled with it for years. When she set out to research the topic for this new book, she found that surprisingly, there is very little available in the marketplace to address chronic insecurity, further reinforcing her desire to write on the subject.

Moore combines her own experiences with extensive research to address serious topics plaguing American women, including:

How can women find validation without a man’s affirmation?

What exactly is insecurity and where do the roots come from?

How have women been “culturally abused” through media and pop culture in America?

How do men differ from women in expressing their insecurities?

How can women use scriptural tools to confront fears?

And much more!

In So Long, Insecurity, Moore seamlessly combines personal stories with stories of friends and readers, along with biblical verses and content, to provide a true tool for any woman wishing to overcome her insecurities.

Beth Moore will be kicking off her book tour for So Long, Insecurity on February 5, 2010 in Atlanta, with additional stops in Houston, Birmingham, and Nashville.
