This book review first appeared in the June 2007 Porpoise Diving life and also on the Faith in a Dress blog. Thanks again to Erin and Pam.

In her book, Fight like a girl : the power of being a woman (Warner Faith, 2006), Lisa Bevere seeks to correct the way women perceive themselves. Modern media, cultural norms and traditional viewpoints have all damaged women’s confidence and self esteem. Women have a unique place in the purposes of God but this has often been overlooked or underrated in church circles. Lisa aims to present a more accurate view of women based on Biblical teaching. She points out the God-given strengths women have and how with these strengths women are meant to come along side men rather than be in competition with them.

Lisa encourages women to be all that God intends them to be, to find their giftedness and talents so they can reach their potential in whatever roles God calls them to. For women who have experienced hurt and rejection at the hands of men she brings a message of hope and healing. Lisa uses examples from her own life which makes for interesting reading and practical teaching. I found the book easy to read, uplifting and encouraging.
