Spiritual Warfare for Women by Leighann McCoy
Attacked! We as women often feel like we’re under attack. By our families, by the media, by our children, by our parents, our husband, our “friends”, our fellow church members, our community, our environment, and the list could go on and on. In this Bible study by Leighann McCoy, Spiritual Warfare for Women, the author confronts and illuminates spiritual warfare that we as Christians fall under so often. Many of the things we may count as attacks by our neighbor, or our position in life are actually Satan’s ways to get us down or to sin.
The author reminds us of our position in Christ, as recipients of God’s unchanging love and care for us. She challenges us to identify spiritual attacks and head them off with Scripture and Biblical truth. Each chapter ends with a Scripture reading and time for reflection as well as specific Bible verses to fight these attacks with. There is also encouragement to memorize Scripture.
This book would be a great women’s group Bible study tool. The author does not appear detatched or too good to be true. She lives in the same world we all do and shares examples from her own life which resonate with many of us. I would definitely recommend this book as a Bible study tool.
I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House publishers in exchange for my review of it. I was not required to write a positive review.
