    1. I think this book has been one of the most important books I have read to date. I strongly encourage every Christian to read "When Godly People Do Ungodly Things: Arming Yourself in the Age of Seduction". Not only would this be so helpful for someone who has fallen into sin, more importantly it will help prevent a fall to begin with. Beth Moore is a great teacher, she is kind and simple in her writing style. I am going to recommend this book to all of the ladies at our bible study and to all of [...]

    2. This book was truly an eye opener for me. I got a greater insight as to why godly people do ungodly things. This book shall stay on my desk for quick reference and reminder. This is a must read for sure.

    3. A wonderful book every Christian should read. Rather or not you think you might have some underlying issues, we need to all realize that it can be a short fall from grace if we are not on guard!

    4. Great book, one that I will continue to reference and will likely read again. Are you, "wholeheartedly, sincerely, and purely devoted to Christ"? Do you think that you are exempt and safe from Satan's seductions, that people who fall into these traps must not have really known and loved God? If so then think again, because it can happen to ANY believer, especially the ones who think it'll never happen to them (including those who've spent most of their lives in ministry.) I have read numerous Be [...]

    5. This was my first Beth Moore study, and it will certainly NOT be my last. She has such a clear message and seems to connect so well with women. This study was very personal in nature. The study's purpose is to force women to examine their faith to see where there might be footholds for Satan to come in and destroy lives. It was unsettling for me to reflect so much on the past to understand the present and secure the future, but it was worthwhile in my case. I love how Beth is inspired to apply j [...]

    6. Beth Moore does it again. It's a great reminder, that no matter how far you turned away from God, or what you did. God is still there waiting for you to turn back to Him. Despite all that you've done to make Him sad, He still loves you and will forgive and forget! It's something I needed. That first week is really tough when you start answering questions and seeing how you line up with the thinking of others. I was amazed at how many times I said, that is so me!

    7. As always Beth Moore is spectacular! Laying out God's word in a no nonsense way that everyone can understand. It took me a longer time than usual to get through this book because it is not one that you read in a dayyou have to read it in sections then put it down and digest the information. My favorite "A-ha" chapter was where she explains we can never be perfect, but we can be blameless. That gave me encouragement and hope, because I am sure not perfect!

    8. I've always known that there had to be a reason why Christians all seem to do dumb things, sinful things, make mistakes and missteps. This book gives you a different outlook. It's kinda like a stop judging them and pray for them because their humans who many times fall in the same places anyone else does. Then, by the same token, she gives some candid advice on avoiding temptation.

    9. Wonderful women's Bible study for a group or to do alone. Expect to be powerfully changed and enlightened. Learn how to remove the masks that satan wears and expose the places he tries to hold on to you in your life. I did it as a Bible study with 6 other women. Every single one of us was touched to the soul by the book and study. Life Changing!

    10. This book has many things that will make you think "Aha", now why didn't I see that. I don't want to spoil it but all who have ever fallen short should read this. Great eye opener!

    11. Going back to one of my favorite authors and Christian teachers, I picked up one of the variety of Beth Moore books that are on my To-Be-Read (TBR) list. I’ve had When Godly People Do Ungodly Things for a while, having swapped it on PaperBackSwap. There was no particular reason I read this book other than a simple curiosity and a love for Beth Moore’s biblical teachings.Today I did the majority of my reading because I finally found a day to relax and read. Seems like the summer has kept me a [...]

    12. This is one of the most important books I've read in the past five years. I say it fills a gap because of the way it so clearly addresses the specific topic of spiritual "seduction." The anonymous reviewer of 3/26/02 did a good job of describing what that is and is not. In contrast to the willfully disobedient or rebellious person, the seduced person may creep by almost imperceptible steps to a spiritual disaster he could not have imagined could happen to him.Moore is compassionate without bein [...]

    13. When Godly People Do Ungodly Things is a poorly titled piece of Christian writing by Beth Moore. The title insinuates that Moore message is about everyday sin. However, her real focus is on the war Satan wages against devoted Christians. Essentially, she states that Christians who have a whole-hearted devotion to Christ will likely be attacked by Satan at some point in their Christian walk. Once I was past my initial confusion about the what the book was really about, I was able to appreciate Mo [...]

    14. It is reported in the headlines, confessed in the pulpits, and hidden in the pews in churches around the world. The seduction of God’s people by the deceiver is a tale as old as the garden, but we are always surprised when it happens. We must realize that Satan is a lion on the prowl and we are his prey.Beth writes with a passion fueled by the Biblical warnings of the schemes of Satan’s seductive activity and the broken-hearted concern of a teacher who receives countless letters from repenta [...]

    15. This was a difficult Bible study, as all the class members seemed to be assigned "lab" as well as lecture. If we were not in the midst of trials when we began, we all had been touched by the end. This book is topical, so there are a lot of verses lifted from context. Mrs. Moore has grown significantly in her Bible study and teaching methods since the time of this study.At the same time, it opened the way for needed, healing, grace-filled conversations about a common experience of a pastor who fe [...]

    16. This is a wonderful book and points out many ways we fall into Satan's seductions. He is constantly working minute by minute, hour by hour to lure us into his web. Seduction has many forms - some we are not even aware of. Beth Moore has a wonderful way of pointing out that seduction is not always sexual but has many connotations. Our job is to be aware and put on our armor to defend Satan's lures. Satan attacks and seduces us when we are at our weakest and need God the most. Therefore, we need t [...]

    17. Only a sifted Peter can tell us about the one who 'goes about like a roaring lion seeking whom to devour'.Only a 'Had' in the mould of Beth Moore can warn us of the tell-tale signs of being Had and the way out.Only a Christ that was in all manners clothed and restrained with our flesh & weakness, yet triumphed over all the wiles of the temper can show us the Way out of being Had & offer us forgiveness as well as cleanse our conscience from the guilt of being 'Had' and sifted.Beth Moore h [...]

    18. Riveting quotes: Pg 21: All along, Satan has been trying to make himself "like the Most High" (Isa. 14:4). I would not be surprised if he counterfeits God's appointment of angels to every believer by appointing demons to every believer. pg 68: God keeps no record of wrongs, but you can bet Satan does. pg 73: Yes, we can do something about our pasts. We can take them to Jesus! We can't forget them or ignore them. We need Him to take full authority over them where they are no longer a playground f [...]

    19. This study was probably one of the most life-changing experiences I have ever had. Breaking down the strong walls and navigating back to center was an intimidating task that Beth proved I was worthy of making because God was eagerly waiting. I never thought that was the case, until WGPDUT. For those that have participated in this study, you all know how incredible the puzzle piece was in Beth's lecture that they found on the ground. I had my "puzzle piece" moment shortly after finishing this stu [...]

    20. Some Christains think it is not possible to be seduced into sin once you become a believer in Christ. Beth Moore proves this to be wrong in this book. She receives many letters from people who fell into sin after being devout Christians for years. Christians are being seduced today by Satan's sneaky strategies to lure many of their chosen path. I particularly liked one analogy of where if you let your fence get one broken picket and not repair it then "the lion is in the yard." A much needed boo [...]

    21. Wow, this book is a pageturner. I confused it with another I thought I had read.Last night picked it up & couldn't put it down, woke up to Chapter 3. Finishing it this week as I am using it as a devotional. Beth captivates your attention in a grandeur manner because of her humility and love for God and I was so intrigued from page one to find empathy on what the remainder has to offer. Will keep you posted. Happy reading,Enjoy!Update 02/16/2013This has turned out to be a hard read however, i [...]

    22. I read this book in 2005, I just came across it and had forgotten. How could I have forgotten it? This is an awesome book! It went along with a Beth Moore Bible study of the same name. You wouldn't need it to go with the video tapes but it's nice. It helps you understand that "free will" is the cause of many bad things that happen in this world. It gives you such a different perspective especially if you're feeling defeated or "ganged up on" or /and hurt by others, especially those who should be [...]

    23. I have great respect for Beth and the work she does teaching the Bible to others. For some reason that I can't really pinpoint, much of her writing does not seem to resonate with me. I think her language is very flowery and churchy, and even though I think I have pretty decent Bible knowledge, I find myself not getting her point sometimes. I know she has many followers, so I guess I'm an exception to the general rule. I do have great respect for Beth and do not doubt her dedication to God at all [...]

    24. It is so easy for Christians to lose their way for a bit and get wrapped up in the secular, selfish world. This was a great reminder to watch my own path but also affirmed that I should not just dismiss the poor behavior of a fellow Christian. It is easy to make excuses for others when they are behaving inappropriately but it can often be that Satan's influence is stronger in their lives than God's at that point in time. In these cases, we need to pray even harder for them to overcome the seduct [...]

    25. I attempted to read this book once before but for some reason, I could just not get my heart into it. I guess I was just not ready at the time. I tried again. The second time the book was better, but I still wasn't quite relating to it until I got about 3/4 into the book. Then something clicked. It was like the holy spirit got a hold of me and I'm like "wow"!!. This fits my experience so well. Talk about encouraging!!!. I bumped my rating up from a 3 to a 4. This was a good read.

    26. This book is a Godsend! There's so many things within these pages that people need to read! God speaks His truth through these pages. It seemed like to me that Beth Moore summarized all of her books in these pages and then some. She speaks on the things that are not spoken of in our churches or in our bible studies just because they may seem too sensitive of unimportant. If I had a must read list this would be second on with the Bible being first.

    27. I already read half the book a couple years ago, and I found this the other day with the bookmark marking my failure to finish it. However, I will say I do love this concept. So I am finishing it!! I love how Beth Moore writes. I love the topic of this book. Its very current. I do think this one was a little repetitive, and a bit discouraging to read how people fall and struggle. Evil is apart of this word. Holding onto Christ is super important. Redemption comes from Him.
