Format: Paperback
This book set me free. After seeing 3 generations of repeated patterns in my grandmother, my mother and myself (despite all my promises to not repeat their mistakes!!!), I realised that there was something else I needed to do. Being born again is not a blanket that just covers every aspect of our christian walk - it is the beginning. Once you are correctly positioned with Christ through your re-birth u need to now study the word and apply it. Alice gives us a clear understanding between the difference between iniquity and transgression and biblically teaches how generational curses and "life patterns" can be passed down through generations unless we repent of them and break them off and the power and authority of the enemy needs to be cut off by the blood of Jesus. If you see you are battling with the same things that your parents or other family members have been dealing with - this book is for you! Everyone should read this - it set me free!! Thank you Jesus!

no more a victim! 2 April 2006
By Constance Jost - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
No wasted words here! I found this book easy to read, succinct and to the point. It demonstrated how childhood rape or molestation can be overcome through prayer, with graphs and charts that were very helpful. The author made clear how to overcome a victim mindset. Especially helpful were definitions of spiritual warfare terms, how demons find ways to attach themselves, and how to get rid of these parasites. ("you've got worms?") Yes, this book helped me gain confidence and put away fear. Highly recommended!

Worthwhile read! 29 April 2006
By Armchair Interviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
All people, including Christians, have traumatic events that keep them in spiritual and emotional bondage. Alice Smith is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and trauma. She began her life journey as a victim, but through the healing power of Christ, she emerged a victor.

Smith's book, Beyond the Lie: Finding Freedom from the Past offers help to all who struggle with past abuse experiences. Through personal and victim stories, biblical stories, statistics, a bibliography of suggested reading and victim resources, Smith provides readers with the necessary information to rise up, gather hope in God and walk out of the darkness.

Smith's book is laid out in a manner that makes it easy for the reader to gather the information necessary to help themselves. She discusses forms of abuse and typical responses by victims, systems of thought that can impact how you view yourself and the world, warning signs that victims send out, positive self talk and healing through Jesus Christ.

Armchair Interviews says: If you, or someone you know has suffered abuse, Beyond the Lie: Finding Freedom from the Past is a valuable gift to give.

An outstanding guide for Christians caught up in terrifying feelings of shame and distrust 7 Jun 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Highly recommended reading, Beyond The Lie: Finding Freedom From The Past by Alice Smith is an outstanding guide for Christians caught up in terrifying feelings of shame and distrust, and who are searching for an escape to a personal world less susceptible to the all consuming evils promoted by the broader culture of the world today. Providing an informed and informative mapping of the proper pathway to a spirituality healthier lifestyle, Beyond The Lie helps the reader to avoid being victimized or otherwise lapse into behaviors that would disgrace themselves and their families. Above all else, Beyond The Lie gratefully speaks to Christian readers of the glorious sacred love of Christ redeeming them from the bonds of their past, the temptations of the present, and the promise of the future.

Find Freedom, Find Peace & Experience a Changed Life 2 April 2006
By Debra Ann Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am thrilled to recommend "Beyond the Lie" to anyone who has suffered at the hands of others, experienced traumas or ever asked the question of how to turn suffering and difficulties into something better vs years of repeated pain. The transparent stories, biblical principles and step by step instructions are the result of over 35 years of counseling and ministry.

In almost 15 years of working alongside Alice's ministry, I have seen thousands of lives impacted and changed by the insights shared in "Beyond the Lie". Personally my life is completely different than where I was years ago when I first met Alice. "Beyond the Lie" can make a difference in your life as well!

You can be free 7 April 2006
By Chuck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I really liked this book. It's easy to read and her stories are real clear. Alice shares in a way that hurting people of this world can be set free of their past. First Alice shares how as a child she was victimized and how she struggled with her abuse for years. But she doesn't stop there she goes on to skillfully explain how we can be free from the torment that has kept us bound all of our life. It really is a lie you know, we don't have to remain a victim! We can be set free. This book will help change your life.
