    This was a wonderful book by christian author and Bishop T.D. Jakes. It is a story of a couple who seem to have everything; good careers, faith, and good friends within their church. However, when their daughter goes missing everything is in question and painful pasts get revealed. It is a book about hope, regrets,and learning to forgive through faith.

    This book was okay. I read the 20th anniversary edition and watched the video clips at the beginning of each chapter. I remember someone giving my mom this book as a gift when I was little. I'd heard so much about it since then that I just knew it was a book every christian woman needed to read. I was disappointed. I have never been a T.D. Jakes fan so I was kind of skeptical about reading it but since it is so well known I decided to make this my first T.D. Jakes read. This book was all over th This book was okay.

Jakes fan so I was kind of skeptical about reading it but since it is so well known I decided to make this my first T.D. Jakes read. This book was all over the place. I do not think Jakes is a good writer based on this book. Perhaps I should have asked the Holy Spirit to open my eyes as I read it but sometimes while reading I would be like "what is he talking about?" It was like he would be on one topic then start on something completely different and just never go back to what the chapter was supposed to be about. I also did not like the way he tries to tell us what to do as women. I am all for encouragement but there are some things in our lives that are going to take more than reading a book to fix. Jakes is a man and will never understand how it feels to be a woman. The thing about these self help books is its so easy for the author to write it because they have not gone through it or they are living the grand life now so even if they did go through it they don't remember how hard it was, all they can see is their grand life now. Not only is Jakes living the grand life but he's never even experienced the issues he writes about that us women have to pull ourselves out of. There were some bible stories and scriptures that were helpful and I may check this book out from the library again but I would never buy it, wouldn't recommend it, and I think it was extremely overrated.

    Woman Thou Art Loose! Wow, T.D. Jakes exposes the truth behind the struggles of everyday women. I love the mysterious tone in which he writes this story. However, while being mysterious he still keeps the reader in tune to what is going on through clues and hints without actually saying what is wrong. His writing in here has a feel of a poetic flow. Jakes speaks on a young woman that was raped by her step father, imprisoned, and lost. This story speaks volumes on issues that women are not ready Woman Thou Art Loose! Wow, T.D.

I admire how he presents many issues that the character is dealing with, but he goes to also present a solution. Most stories leave you with a feeling of what ifs and why not? However, here Jakes leave the reader feeling inspired to change, and inspired to heal from past wounds, and hidden hurt. I enjoy how Jakes gives new perspectives to look at circumstances in life. I will definitely try incorporating his issue/solution technique.

    This a book that surprised me a great deal. I didn'r expect to be so enlightened as I was. It speaks to the heart of a woman, how we live, the hurts, the expectations we put on ourselves and what the Lord expects of us. The voice of the writer is direct, interesting and continually surprised me because although the writer is a man of God, but he is still a man, speaking to a womans heart. The book takes the wounds, or broken heart, or dashed expectation, or lost innocents, or whatever pain you m This a book that surprised me a great deal. I didn'r expect to be so enlightened as I was.

The book takes the wounds, or broken heart, or dashed expectation, or lost innocents, or whatever pain you may have been hanging onto, and helps you to effectively let go of it once and for all. It helps you to see yourself as God sees you. This book is for woman of all ages, where ever you are in your walk.

    It was a good, quick read, but nothing life changing for me. I don't like how Bishop TD Jakes has himself as a character in the book, that seemed pompous. In this case, I can say I liked the movie better, but the book is great to read bc you can get in the character's headspace. I did learn something about myself though and it is that I'm nowhere near as close to God as I wish I were. My faith would have been much like Michelle's, and it pisses me off that a molester can give his sins to God in t It was a good, quick read, but nothing life changing for me.

I know a sin is sin, but in my mind some are worse than others.

    Wow. I can usually read a book in a day; this one took me a few days because it touched very sensitive areas in my heart. This book is a powerful tool to help women realize that God intends for us to live a life free from shame of our past..victorious in His promise.

    I know I've probably been living under a rock or something, but I don't know anything about the author, T.D. Jakes.

We might be getting a little mixed up as to who we are worshiping here! It's good to use God-given gifts in spreading the Word, but we need to be careful we are pointing people to the Savior and the cross. We need to not get the messenger in the way of the message." My eyebrows first lifted as I saw the author had cast himself in the role of famous evangelical preacher of a mega-church when he introduced his character ministering to a women on death row. I became less and less impressed as I continued to read more and more about "Bishop Jake" but still no Scriptures in this novel purportedly detailing a woman's journey to the Lord. "He listened to the sermon. Bishop Jakes had tapped deep down in his soul" (197). . ."Michelle shouted as she clapped her hands in response to Bishop Jakes's words" (199). . ."As she listened to Bishop Jakes". . ."But with the help of Bishop Jakes, she was given a chance to really make something of her life" (204) "She returned her attention to Bishop Jakes. His voice, she decided, had a way of bringing a calm to her troubled soul" (211). Is it just me, or is anyone else bothered by the representation of it being a man who taps deep down in a person's soul, his words being what brings about change, his voice bringing calm? I am so sad that we so easily get things mixed up and worship the creation rather than the Creator. I think this is a problem both for your average-Joe christian to be tempted to elevate some to "super-christian" status and it's also a temptation for some to elevate themselves above others. It's been a problem since the very early days of the church as evidenced by Paul's letters to the Corinthians, so I suppose I shouldn't be so disheartened by it, but I am nonetheless. That's my biggest impression from reading this book and I can't recommend it (nor do I feel any inclination toward watching the string of movies of a similar name that I came across on Amazon while looking for a picture of the book to link). The woman's story is also pretty rough. I realize that one in three women have been sexually assaulted (and personally believe the truth to be higher than that) but it's not really something I enjoy reading about.

    Woman, Thou Art Loosed! is an insightful book for women of all walks and seasons of life written by T. D. Jakes. Originally published in 1993, this particular book is published in 2016. Not a new message but still so very relevant to women today. Recognizing that women are often emotionally frail, bound by past experiences and hurts, and in need of healing and release in their spirits, Jakes shares spiritual insights into the healing of those wounds.

Originally published in 1993, this particular book is published in 2016. Not a new message but still so very relevant to women today. Recognizing that women are often emotionally frail, bound by past experiences and hurts, and in need of healing and release in their spirits, Jakes shares spiritual insights into the healing of those wounds. Each of the 15 chapters is well supported by scripture and examples of women in the Bible and deals with different stages of life (single, married, young, older--he calls them 'winter women'--love it!) and a variety of emotional and mental issues (past hurts, guilt, abuse, abandonment). The author writes that there are three characters in each story, the person, the problem, and the prescription. Each story is different but the prescription is the same, understanding who you are in Jesus Christ...a daughter of Abraham, a survivor, a daughter of the King, loved and called by God. Change is not easy but recognizing the faithfulness of God and his desire to restore and nourish, gives strength to bless His name, redefine purposes, experience attitude readjustment and ultimately, to be freed of the past and become the woman of faith, pure and holy, strong in Him, that God has purposed for each of us. Well thought out, the book is easy to read and follow Bishop Jakes' thinking, a wonderful resource for all women, whether in need of a spiritual make-over or just a tune-up. I received a copy of this book through The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

    Author T.D. Jakes penned "Woman Thou Art Loosed!" to help women. This 234 page paperback is an encouragement to all women but especially those that are struggling. Pastor Jakes writes his best selling book to assure women they are meaningful and worthy. God wants us to know He made us and loves us the way we are.

The main point in it is that even though we have experienced bad things we cannot let them hold us captive. God wants to free us. We need to turn to Him. Throughout this powerfully uplifting book, author Jakes has placed banners with key sentences or points to help readers hone in on them. Things like: "Faith comes when you recognize that you can't help yourself" and "If you want the enemy to release you, remind him whose daughter you are." There is scripture abundantly in this book. It is even on the back cover." Bible figures and stories are referenced. It is clearly and delightfully a Christian book. I would definitely recommend this best selling book. Any woman bogged down by past bad decisions, trauma, and things that keep her from living life abundantly would benefit from this book. It is very well written. I rated it a 5 out of 5 stars.

    This is a great book to encourage you and start moving past pain. Some of us have gone through tremendous heartache and as we get older, those memories can hold us back. Be of good cheer though, because it is time to be set free from the bondage that the enemy has tried to deceive us with.

I found myself crying for that little girl who was never able to be free. It is painful to think that no one loves you, and you walk around with shame . But we don't have to live like that anymore. The book is powerful, straight forward and so encouraging that I couldn't put it down. As you read the book, let the healing begin as you soak in the words of wisdom and freedom.

    Rev. Jakes has a heart for the hurting. In Woman, Thou Art Loosed, Jakes turns that heart to the various ways women today are held in bondage and seeks to show them the way out. That said, I really struggled to get through this book. Part of it for me was the fact that it was a non-fiction book.

Biblically, this book was very sound in its teaching which I appreciated. Since this book is written specifically to women, I would recommend it as a possible supplement to Bible study on the ways women are enslaved to sin. His chapters on Broken Arrows and The Victim Survives speak gently to the woman whose victimization began in childhood. The book is meant to lead its readers toward "Healing the Wounds of the Past" and does an admirable job of that. I received this book from bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.

    When I first saw this book I wasn’t sure I was going to like it but from the beginning Michelle’s story intrigued me so I kept reading. I liked how the author would use flashbacks from her talking to the Reverend to when she was little and then jump to when she had got out of jail the first time. I really liked how the author wanted Michelle, the main character to have someone that loved and cared for her even though she pushed them away.

    If I could read only 3 or 4 books in my lifetime, this would be one of them, hands down! Written in an uncomplicated but heartfelt style, this book heals. It starts healing within the first few pages. You can feel the balm of Gilead spreading within you as you read. In succinct phrases, T.D. Jakes delivers the love of God the Father to the wounded and bound woman. With that love you will be loosed from whatever prison holds you captive.

    My God-Sister gave me this book to read and i loved it from front to back!!! Let Go of the past, regardles of the circumstance!!! Let Go and Let God, is what i try to live by but it's easier said than done. T.D. Jakes definitely has a knack for relating to people, then again, he has been Blessed by the Lord where he speaks thru him and its done in such a way that it gives you a sense of pure Love and this book does the same!!! I recommend it to every woman and man!!! A perfect read!!!

    I use this book periodically now and then. It was an intricate part in my healing process and understanding what I was going through. God is always a big part of my life and Jakes intricately fused the Lords teachings with very specific obstacles any survivor of sexual abuse must face on a day to day basis. I love that he makes all his references from the bible and speaks to the soul of the pain. Can never get tired of revisiting these powerful movements that heal your soul.

    I was recommended this book by a couple of people and, at first, didn't understand what was so great about it. I thought some parts generalized women and didn't get why it was so inspiring in the reviews. I almost stopped reading. However, about halfway through, I really started to warm up to it and began finding more parts I could relate to. Mr. Jakes has a way with words, and once you find a chapter that speaks to you, it becomes a better read.

    T.D. Jakes shares how to be freed from the pain of your past and live a beautiful life! This book would be especially good for a woman who has been abused but it is enlightening for any female. As an older woman, I especially enjoyed the chapter "Winter Woman". Woman, Thou Art Loosed! is easy for anyone to understand. I would recommend this book for anyone!

    This book has opened my eyes not only about who I am and my womanhood but it has shed so much light on other females in my life, especially my mother! I enjoyed reading this book. One important aspect for me was that I had to read this book in increments because it touched me so deeply. I would recommend this book to any woman who wants to look past her PAST and know that God has!!! I will be looking into purchasing the "Woman Thou Art Loosed Bible".

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. He's a good story teller, I'll give him that. But I still hold true to my original impression. I'm just not a fan of how he featured himself so prominently. Almost as if he was the protagonist's (and every other supporting characters' for that matter) own personal savior. P.S. Even the worst public defender in the world couldn't have gotten their client on death row for such a crime of passion. I know it lends to the dramatic, but it's just too far out there.

    I found the book to be well-written and full of useful information, but it did not connect with me. I enjoy hearing Bishop Jakes preach and I love his movies, but I have not found myself in any of them yet. I do recommend reading it, this might be the book that leads you to a breakthrough and frees you from all the junk of this life and all the baggage we lug around from the past. Enjoy!

    I have read only some of this book as it spoke volumes to me at a time I was not ready to deal with certain aspects of my life. For any woman who has suffered abuse in any way this book is a beautiful writing of understanding the love and healing offered by the Lord. Jesus understood the woman at the well. he understands what we have gone through and still calls us precious.

    what starts as a marred life, turns into a life beginning to heal. bishop td jakes surprised me with his storytelling abilities. as heavy as the material is, it is a pretty easy and fast read. although i will say, the movie did not meet my expectations after reading this. still a beautiful story of God's love and healing powers.

    I read this in high school... and while I remember liking it okay, it wasn't a fav of mine. Granted, this could be an unfair review because I typically hate being told what to read (I like reading books that suit my fancy at the time). So maybe I'll reread this later on, and see if it grabs me.

    This is a great book! Bishop Jakes tells this fictional story of these women who of course represent women in real life. Their stories help you to see your wounds, or your broken heart, that maybe you weren't aware was there. Pick this book up.

    wonderful story of how something so bad that you think will kill all that is in you and what good really wants from you is to build you up into that strong women to be able to endure the things ahead

    Still reading this... I really need to focus on 1 book at a time! I love TD Jakes and the way he is able to communicate new perspectives. I already know, I'm going to be a whole new woman after reading this. I'll update when I'm done.

    A spectacular book written for any woman who has had hurt, betrayal, abuse and ridicule in her life. T.D. Jakes has an extraordinary insight into the hearts of women and this book brings God's hope and restoration to the broken. One of my all time favourite Christian books.
