Item Description...
Overview
"When I feel like a failure, I look at somebody else and get so envious." "I know why I accumulate nice things and even nice people--to prove that I'm worth something." "Why am I so consumed--even obsessed--with what's trivial instead of what's really important?" Mary Ellen Ashcroft knows about these thoughts and feelings. In this book she writes about where the needs and motivations of women come from, what temptations hook into these needs, and how women can get beyond them. As women, she says, we can find ourselves tempted to: *fill our lives with things *let our anger consume us *focus on food or dieting *believe distortions about sex *get stuck in our dissatisfaction Ashcroft maintains that we should look honestly at our temptations and ask what they tell us about ourselves. She believes God's intention is not simply that we flee temptation, but that we be fully redeemed. This book shows the way through each temptation and how women can day by day begin to build a life pleasing to God.

Talked Down To  Aug 25, 2005
Unfortunately I bought this book thinking it would be helpful with a "real" feminist point of view for my women's group. Not so! Women, save your money, buy something else! Mary Ellen you're no feminist.
 
Temptations Women Face  Dec 21, 1999
After having Ashcroft as a professor of writing, I was excited to read this book. It is helpful and insightful. Ashcroft openly speaks to women about the struggles we face of which we are often not even aware. Some friends and I organized a women's group in which we discussed a chapter a week. We all found it to be eye-opening and helpful as we each worked through our various issues concerning love, money, sex, etc. from a Christian point of view. Recommended for Baby Boomer women (like Ashcroft) and GenXers (like me) alike.
 
Condescending Pap  Dec 12, 1999
Mary Ellen Ashcroft -- like me -- is an evangelical Chrisitan who also is a feminist of sorts. Here she supposedly "talks honestly" about issues that tempt women. But she does little moralize. Furthermore, the book is filled with cliches and stereotypes -- especially in her discussions of food and sex. Ashcroft suffers from something that plagues a lot of Chrisitan writers and scholars -- she thinks her audience, made up of other Chrisitans, is dumb. Better luck next time, Mary Ellen!
