Book Review: Spritual Warfare for Women
Spiritual Warfare for Women
By Leighann McCoy
Bethany House, 2011
English, 239 pgs
Evil is real, and Christian women know it. While most books on the topic of spiritual warfare take a charismatic approach, Spiritual Warfare for Women aims directly at the center of the evangelical market, giving instruction and assurance to all women who want to protect themselves and the ones they love. McCoy provides spiritual wisdom and practical tips on identifying the enemy's strategies, overcoming fear, and exercising the power that comes from God. The book is structured around the battle between God's love and Satan's lies. Once a woman can embrace the first and reject the second, she is well on her way to victory.
This is a really relevant book. Caution though, when you start reading about spiritual battles, be ready for some to come your way. The book is divided into four sections. It is very well researched and written. The only negative is that there isn't any study guide or section. There are a few questions at the end of the chapters, but they aren't too deep and they aren't exactly something for a study group or Bible study.
I received a copy of the book for the purpose of a review. No additional compensation has been received and I was not required to write a positive review.
