Book Review: The New Spirit-Controlled Woman – Beverly LaHaye ☆☆☆☆☆

The above title has probably just turned a lot of male heads away, but there are sections in the book for you to read too, so “leave the page and read the review and buy this book for your misses and you read it too.

Title: The New Spirit-Controlled Woman

Author: Beverly LaHaye (2005)

Our temperaments play a significant part in all areas of our lives and although there are four main types of temperaments (plus the twelve blends), it should be said that a male and female of the same temperament do have their differences (with the inclusion of other factors).

The book Spirit Controlled Temperament did its best by defining each of the temperament without defining itself with the emotion of a female or the masculinity of man. However, Beverley LaHaye (yes, Dr Timothy LaHaye’s wife) took the opportunity in the The New Spirit Controlled Woman to give a detailed description of each temperament in view of a female and once again highlighting the weaknesses and the strengths.

With the inclusion of referring back to the Word on how to overcome the mentioned weaknesses, Beverly also discusses the differences of how each of the temperaments and the spirit filled temperament of a woman effects the various factors, events and stages of a female’s life; personal life, interests, talents, parent-child relationship, dating, career choices, marriage and communication and even in-law relationships.

To conclude, our temperament was designed by God and with the help of the Holy Spirit, used for a great purpose. A spirit filled Melancholy will have a wealth full of talent, she will have the ability to do many things that are difficult and foreign to her natural temperament. A phlegmatic will stop shying away from tasks that will result into stand out and be a blessing onto others. A Choleric that is spirit controlled will be more patient when working with other people, she will be soft also sensitive. A Sanguine will be more disciplined and more dependable.

There is no better temperament.
