Thirty years in the making, Audacious is a deep dive into the message that has compelled Beth Moore to serve women around the globe. Glancing over the years of ministry behind her and strengthening her resolve to the call before her, she came to the realization that her vision for women was incomplete. It lacked something they were aching for. Something Jesus was longing for. Beth identifies that missing link by digging through Scripture, unearthing life experiences, and spotlighting a turning point with the capacity to infuse any life with holy passion and purpose. What was missing? Well, let's just say, it's audacious and it's for all of us. And it's the path to the life you were born to live.
- Loved it!!!
I absolutely LOVED IT!!!
- truth for guys on!
Yes, it is written to women, but truth is truth. Lots in here for us too! Beth, thanks for giving so much of yourself to your readers. To God be the glory!
- Great Call to Action- Live Audacious!
This book is such a great call to have Audacious Faith. We are not to idly walk through life, but we are to live in such a way that the world knows whose we are. We are to radically and audaciously believe that God is who He says He is and can do all He said He can do. Within this book, Beth Moore, delves into many scriptures teaching the word through the pages and encouraging/guiding at the same time. Her personal experiences are riddled with humor and humility. Her southern- Texan drawl creates such a warm listening experience, as if she is sitting beside you sipping tea and inviting you in for a chat. I enjoyed this book and the stories shared but most of all that it was grounded in the Word.

- WANT TO HAVE VERVE!
Hard for me to believe anyone would say this was not one of their favorite books by Beth Moore. By the end of the book I was almost in tears that it was ending. Did a ladies study at church and then got it from the library on audio to listen to as I drive back and forth to work. This book inspired me to have more of a desire for God and WANT to spend time in his word and not just know I should.
- Liked It, Didn't Love It
I liked the book. I usually love Beth Moore, but this book had up and downs. Had a hard time finishing the book, but the last chapter is the best!
- Awesome book
What an awesome book! Takes your breath away knowing how audacious you can be. By the end I had tears thinking how I want the last words spoken over me to be "She was audacious and had verve".
- Alright but not my favorite Beth Moore book
I have read several books by Beth Moore as well as done some of the Bible studies. To be honest, this one was hard for me to "get into" and follow (which is why it has taken me so long to complete this review). I don't know if it was the time of year in which I was trying to listen or what, but it was just really hard for me to focus on it or understand the flow.
She makes some good points, but overall she seems to tell a bunch of stories about her life and relate them to the topic of each chapter. I felt like I kept waiting for it all to connect, and it just didn't for me. I will say that the last chapter was beautiful and a really sweet reminder of the awesome God we serve.
This audio version was read by the author. It does take a little bit to get used to hearing her voice. She does add emotion to the reading of the words though which makes it enjoyable.
I received this audio book as part of the christianaudio reviewers program. Thank you.
- Audacious wasn’t my favorite book by Beth Moore
Audacious, the audiobook, is narrated by Beth herself, which adds nicely to the listening enjoyment. When I moved to the South people used to accuse me of speaking too fast, but Beth is from here (Arkansas) and when she gets fired up, she can “talk a blue streak” (that’s really fast, with no breath). There is no way to listen to her without visualizing her big smile and the animated hand movements you see in her bible study videos. As always, Beth delivers lessons of faith and wild (but not unbelievable) tales of God’s greatness with an ample amount of self-deprecating humor.
Unfortunately, this book didn’t hold the same appeal for me as her studies have. She chased a lot of squirrels, getting sidetracked with stories, to the point that I had trouble understanding the message of some chapters until she summarized them at the end. While thoroughly entertaining, I feel like I only had a few take-aways from this book:
The need to ask myself “What am I most compelled by the love of Christ to do?” and “What would it take to do it?”
It’s also important to reconcile what I need to do with what I want to do. To explain it further, I can say, “I need to read my bible.” However, “I need” is not going to lead to sustained bible reading.
All women do battle with desire and deceit. The way to ensure victory is to draw near to Christ, only He can exchange our wants and desires for His own.
Every reader will be different and I believe God can use even the simplest message to draw us closer to Himself. If you have been the victim of abuse, experienced a teenage pregnancy, or been deceived by your own heart – Chapter 9 is for you. Had intimate dealings with mental illness? – Chapter 10 may help you reconcile with your past. Audacious wasn’t my favorite book by Beth Moore, but I’ll return for future books and studies because I know Beth is a gifted teacher and orator.
