Spiritual Warfare for Women by Leighann McCoy

Spiritual Warfare for Women is new from Bethany House and is written by Leighann McCoy. Leighann is a speaker and writer. She is the prayer and women's minister at a large Southern Baptist church where her husband serves as pastor, and she has written a number of devotionals and Bible studies for women. She lives with her family in Franklin, TN.

That being said, I'd not heard of her until I picked up this little 229 page book. My own pastor husband is doing a series on spiritual warfare right now and I thought it might be interesting to get a woman's take on the subject.

This book is divided into several sections. The first section being about God's love. As I read this section I wasn't sure I was going to like the rest of the book. This section is pretty basic Sunday-school type stuff. Stuff I've known and have practiced for decades. For a new believer it's probably something that they'd be happy to hear again.

The rest of the book blew me away. Really good stuff in there. Leighann teaches the reader who their enemy is. Where he came from and how to defeat him. She made several interesting points that I'd never thought of before, one being on what deception really is and how the enemy uses it to keep us from being who God wants us to be.

If you're looking for a book that will teach you how to be a strong fighter in the Lord's kingdom then I highly recommend that you get a copy of this one. Excellent.

This book was provided for review by Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
