Spiritual Warfare for Women by Leighann McCoy is a book written by someone who really knows how to do some battle as the stories that Leighann shares from her own life really help to show the reader that this isn’t just a pie- in- the- sky book, but one written by someone whose battled it out in the trenches and lived to tell about it. As I first picked up the book and read the introduction I almost said, maybe I won’t read this book after all because if my experience is like that of the authors then maybe I might want to skip some battles and keep things easy, but it turns out that I pressed on and read the book and I’m glad I did, even with the battles that I am facing, but at least I am better prepared.
The book is divided up into 4 sections. The first is exploring the great love of God and how that impacts our lives, followed by section 2 where the enemy and his tactics are explored. Part 3 explores the Targets that the enemy tries to get at us with- our marriages, children, friendships, health, church, etc. And lastly in part 4 is finding Victory in Christ through our standing in Him and why we have nothing to fear. I truly appreciated all of the great scripture mentioned at the end of every chapter with great ideas for different tricks with how to commit them to memory. My absolute favorite part of the book was at the end where the author points out 5 stones with which to do battle against the enemy with. Just like David against Goliath she delves into what those stones are and how they can help you to stand against the enemy- perseverance, faith, confidence, etc.
This is one of those books that will stay on my shelf so that I can refer back to it again and again. I am a woman of God, wife, mother, friend and ministry worker who wants to be fully armed for battle and this book helps me to be ready to do just that.
4 out of 5 stars
I was given a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes by the publisher. The review written was my opinion and I was not required to write positive review.
