The sword theme is followed throughout the book and the concepts of the sport of fencing are used as a springboard for Bevere to introduce the reader on how to apply spiritual and biblical concepts to one's own life. In the beginning is an illustration of a sword and an explanation of basic fencing terminology. Throughout the book are fencing facts- highlighted in shaded, bold circle graphics. Fencing and sword clip art is featured throughout adding visual appeal and to break up the text.
The book is easy to follow, read and apply. Discussed is the problem at hand- how the reader is a target of Satan. Once that is established the significance of the sword- God's word- is covered. To compliment the theme, the reader is taught how she can become a hero- literally. The different senses of the sword are discussed and explained. Issues of forgiveness and restoration are covered. Her writing is very lively and her faith in the word of God is clear. Her words are empowering and help to make bible principles clear with appealing analogies. This is a good book to read and reread.
Lisa Bevere has written several books that minister to women. She has a good understanding and gift she uses to empower her readers. In this day and age, women are sometimes perceived as weaker or second class- ironically, the author uses biblical principles to empower women. As a blogger I received this book published by Water Brook for the purpose of writing this review.
