Good Ammunition for the Battle

First to know, this is a religious-based book. The author, Joyce Meyer, is a popular Christian author and speaker. Her television and radio programs air in many languages and countries. She has also written many books on Christianity, this being one of the more popular....
First to know, this is a religious-based book. The author, Joyce Meyer, is a popular Christian author and speaker. Her television and radio programs air in many languages and countries. She has also written many books on Christianity, this being one of the more popular.

"Battlefield of the Mind: Winning the Battle in Your Mind" is about solving some of the common problems we all encounter in life, such as depression, anger, or worry, by getting you to examine the way you think about things, or as the book puts it, "you need to begin to think about what you are thinking about." And that's basically the goal of the whole book.

Other major points include:

-our actions are a direct result of our thoughts.
-thoughts take place in your mind, so your mind is in essence "the battlefield"
-if you have a negative mind, you will have a negative life
-on the other hand, if you renew you mind according to God's Word, you will have a positive life

Much of the book is devoted to getting the reader to change their thinking and discusses how to tear down the "strongholds" that the devil tries to set up in the mind. Joyce uses parables and many personal examples along the way- which makes the book very interesting to read.

In sum, if you're stuck in a rut for any number of reasons, and are looking for a book with a religious tone to help you out- I think its a good choice. Also recommend "Finding Happiness in a Frustrating World". Peace.

No thanks

I wouldn't call myself a non-Christian and was given this book by someone who knows nothing of my spiritual beliefs but who knew I was going through a hard time so maybe I shouldn't even review it. In addition to why I shouldn't review it is that I couldn't even make it...
I wouldn't call myself a non-Christian and was given this book by someone who knows nothing of my spiritual beliefs but who knew I was going through a hard time so maybe I shouldn't even review it. In addition to why I shouldn't review it is that I couldn't even make it through the first few pages. Satan Satan Satan. Come on, just blame your mother if you need to place blame on another. Satan? Really? I had no idea so many people still gave that little devil the time of day.
This book sends the same message as many other books of this genre do and that is that negative thoughts control and can ruin your life and the lives of those closest to you and that they need to be addressed and recognized. I call those thoughts my Ego and I do my best to keep it in check.
