The Lady, Her Lover, and Her LordBook - 1998
In his million-copy bestseller, Woman, Thou Art Loosed!, Bishop T. D. Jakes showed women how to heal the wounds of the past and to forge forward into their futures. Now, he has written his most urgent book yet, a progressive next step and the book millions of women have been waiting for. In this stirring call to healing and empowerment, Jakes shows us how society demands girls and women to be perfect, to be sweet, to be sexy, to be submissive, to be pristine, to be anything and everything but the one thing God wants them to be'real. He argues that females are often subjected to verbal, physical, and emotional abuse, which they then carry around in their minds and their hearts, causing them to feel like they have no place to go and no worth of their own.But Bishop Jakes has a message of Good News and hope for these women. He tells them that God has a plan for each of them, that each is holy in the arms of her Lord. His book delves deeply into the three most important relationships in a woman's life: with herself, with her man, and with God. Jakes gives clear direction that enables and empowers women to be restored in all of their relationships without any residual side effects from the past. He redirects the expectations characteristic of failed relationships by discussing the many things women often desire from their mate that can only be fulfilled by God. This book is written for women who desire to reach their goals, maximize their God-given potential, and still have someone with whom to share them.Accessible, sensitive, practical, inspirational'the amazing T. D. Jakes has written a book that women have been praying for, with a powerful message of hope and transformation.
