It is Five Minute Friday—the day that we take five minutes to write on the prompt that Kate Motaung gives us. If you would like to join this group of writers click here for Kate’s information. Today’s prompt is: WHY
When the first edition of Lies Women Believe and the Truth That Sets Them Free was published in 2001, I read it. Some of the women in my church also read it, and the book opened discussion on sensitive topics.
A new and revised edition will be available on February 19th. I have been privileged to receive an advance copy as a member of the launch team.
Why is there a new edition? Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth explains in the preface:
Our world has been shaken by seismic cultural shifts since Lies was first released in 2001. For example, social media as we know it today did not exist back then. And certain sexual issues and themes that were peripheral twenty years ago now touch most of our lives in personal ways. I’ve added an entire chapter on lies about sexuality and made some other needed updates.
She mentions the letters, e-mails and conversations that she received in response to the first book. She has listened and clarified her message.
Seventeen years have gone by and Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth has been married for three years now. She writes: At selected points in this book, I’ve added thoughts or illustrations from my older/married vantage point.
Next week I will post a review of the book. Hope you will come back!
