What if you discovered you have been entrusted with an invisible, invincible, and incorruptible weapon? Would you use it? If there ever was a time for women to be armed, it’s now. Yet the Word of God is a sword we often are more comfortable studying than wielding. It’s time for women to take up their swords and use them to connect heaven to earth. Worldwide, women are the targets of prejudice, sex trafficking, abuse, and even gendercide. Lisa Bevere says that these attacks say more about who women might be in the future than who they have been in the past.
In Girls with Swords she explains a spiritual enemy is seeking to disarm women on every level. It’s time for women to become the heroes God created them to be and stand — courageous, discerning, forgiving, and wise. Creatively forging the imagery of swords, the Word of God, and the Cross, Girls with Swords will teach you:
- How to speak the language of heaven on earth• What it means to intercede
- What it means to carry your cross
- What it means to be discerning
- How to disarm the enemy
- Why women are the enemy’s target
—and why God needs them to be heroes It’s time to take up your sword and be a hero.
- Uplifting and Encouraging
I liked this book a lot. Read by Lisa Bevere, it has a positive, upbeat tone that was encouraging to listen to. I enjoyed the discussion of the different kinds of swords and how they are used, along with the informative fencing terms with relevent scriptures to show the analogy to the Christian walk. I gained a lot of insights in the book and bought a second copy of the audio book for my adult daughter.
- Respect, honor and diligence.
This is a book that you really take the time to invest in who you are, who God says you are and how to take a stand and fight with respect, honor and diligence.
- Loved this book!
I enjoyed listening to this book. What first struck me was to 'get' the importance of a woman as part of the image of God. And how much the enemy is after that. Also, the importance of having a sword to wield, meaning believe the Word and use the Word. Use your sword. I also liked Ms. Bevere spunky 'italianesque' tone when reading. I recommend this book to anyone.
