Finally, women can talk about it. Dethroning the Queen openly addresses the long-standing but seldom-talked-about issue of female rivalry. It exposes comparison, competition, jealousy, antipathy, discord, judgment, exclusivity, slander, subtext and pride; major issues that frequently create tension between women. This book explains how these habits are rooted in sin and insecurity, which severely hinder both the abundant life God promises and our effectiveness in the Kingdom. Because female rivalry is rooted in sin, the only true solution is the Word of God. Dethroning the Queen exposes the issues and then addresses each one based on Scripture. Readers are encouraged not to point fingers at other women, but instead to look inward and allow the Holy Spirit to heal their own unhealthy attitudes and behaviors. By uncovering this silent struggle and allowing women to hear what God has to say about it, Dethroning the Queen promotes wholeness and healthy relationships between women of all ages. The wisdom found in this book will free women to experience the gift of sisterhood and inspire them to be even more Christ-like, thus equipping them to be more effective in the Kingdom of God.
