Spiritual Warfare for Women by Leighann McCoy
Being somewhat familiar with the author because I have attended her and her husband’s church in the past, I was pleasantly surprised by what I found inside this book. Not that I was expecting anything bad, but I was surprised to see things I had to leave the Baptist denomination in order to learn. Apparently, this author has a vibrant relationship with the living God because quite a lot of what she writes about here she did not learn from her own denominational teachings. (I have a long personal history in that one.)
I loved the way Leighann started the book by grounding us in the foundational knowledge of God’s love for us. Then near the end of the book, she grounded us in the knowledge of who we are in Christ—-excellent.
I found this author to be authentic, vulnerable, and real, which was very refreshing. She sprinkled personal stories liberally throughout the book and they clearly tied in to the subject at hand. Well done.
I can’t say that I learned much new information here but there were plenty of excellent, Biblically sound reminders of important spiritual truths. In this respect I found the book to be very rich. All that being said, you may find it lacking if you are used to a very strong charismatic perspective on this topic. It is more suited to a mainline evangelical, but to that kind of person, they are sure to learn some new things.
One more note: if you are anything like me, you will need to have some facial tissue handy (and I consider that to be a plus for this book).
