About this deal

While it certainly offers some helpful advice and speaks truth at times, the foundation on which it is built is simply not compatible with Christianity and will almost certainly mislead the incautious reader. It is quite common knowledge now that Joyce Meyer has gone under the knife (I thought she was hotter before, as a friend told me I was the type that would always choose the before pictures on those infomercials, and he's right). I have had such a 180 in my thinking and my life due to this book that I want to come back to this same jail after I am out in August to teach of this book and these principles to others that I see in here that are in very desperate need of these ideals. After Chapter 10 of "Battle Field of the Mind" I truly began to appreciate the depth of Meyer, which at first appearance, to me, seemed shallow.

It seemed to me too, that by the end of the book, Joyce's vocabulary was expanding, and her prose growing sharper (I realize that she has written over 70 published books). Joyce’s passion to help hurting people is foundational to the vision of Hand of Hope, the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Translation is an exact word-for-word account of the message, whereas in interpretation one person gives an understanding of what another has said, but in the interpreter's own style as expressed through his own particular personality.I don't see the harm in a little woolgathering every now and then, especially if it's not distracting you from a task at hand, but she says that's bad. i have several of her books as well as the JM/The Everyday Life Bible and as someone else mentioned in another review (or several actually), her 'translations' in italics that seem to be kind of thrown in here and there does sometimes get a little distracting (i'm easily distracted lol) so i just skip over them and go back to them later in case i feel the need for clarification. I, on the other hand, live that way for weeks on end sometimes, and I got quite resentful and jealous.

it's taking me longer to finish that book (i've gotten into the habit of reading 2-3 books at a time, What's so Amazing About Grace and Resolution for Women are also on my nightstand) but i'll be back with a review on it soon. While the first 2/3 of the book is highly enlightening and well worth the read, the last 1/3 made the book for me.

All in all, I think she addressed a problem that hasn't received much attention, and this book was a welcome read. It was slow for me to read because there was so much in it to digest (and also, it's not a book to read if you're looking for something light to read - her writing style is light, but the ideas presented in the book are anything but light). The fact that it is already so mass produced that it can be very cheaply bought and yet so powerfully change someone's life ( by the work of the Holy Spirit ) is a testament to Joyce, it is completely grounded in scripture all the way through, my critical mind couldn't fault it while my open were being opened and my soul being fed. Confessing not only covers our sin, but also helps us to recognize and analyze where it is that we are habitually falling into sin. Reading it once seems a shame, therefore, in this case, unlike the cases of many other books, a workbook would be preferable—I'll be keeping my eye out for one.
