The title of the book- Girls With Swords By Lisa Bevere, sounds more like a low budget karate action film rather than an empowering spiritual book. Nevertheless, this book teaches the reader how to wield God's word, the bible, in order to grow closer to God. This unique book, with its unique theme will appeal firstly to the extroverted, powerful, career woman or younger female reader. Yet , it is applicable to all women as well. No one needs to wonder about the connection between swords and spirituality because God's word is likened to a sword like the biblical verse Hebrews 4:12 states: For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. With that in mind- the title and the theme for this book is perfectly suited. The sword theme is followed throughout the book and the concepts of the sport of fencing are used as a springboard for Bevere to introduce the reader on how to apply spiritual and biblical concepts to one's own life. In the beginning is an illustration of a sword and an explanation of basic fencing terminology. Throughout the book are fencing facts- highlighted in shaded, bold circle graphics. Fencing and sword clip art is featured throughout adding visual appeal and to break up the text. The book is easy to follow, read and apply. Discussed is the problem at hand- how the reader is a target of Satan. Once that is established the significance of the sword- God's word- is covered. To compliment the theme, the reader is taught how she can become a hero- literally. The different senses of the sword are discussed and explained. Issues of forgiveness and restoration are covered. Her writing is very lively and her faith in the word of God is clear. Her words are empowering and help to make bible principles clear with appealing analogies. This is a good book to read and reread. Lisa Bevere has written several books that minister to women. She has a good understanding and gift she uses to empower her readers. In this day and age, women are sometimes perceived as weaker or second class- ironically, the author uses biblical principles to empower women. As a blogger I received this book published by Water Brook for the purpose of writing this review.

I have to admit that the book Girls with Swords really is empowering, particularly to young women. I enjoyed it as much as I did the book Secret Techniques for Controlling Sadness, Anger, Fear, Anxiety, and Other Emotion by Vlad Koros. While Girls with Swords gives a powerful boost to your faith and self image, Secret Techniques helps you tone down those emotions that weaken your faith and self-confidence. I just love how these two very different books complement each other.

This title came as a recommendation at the library, and I am so glad to have picked it up! This is a deep, deep dive into how swords are an image of our faith. Ms. Bevere has layers upon layers of ideas to share – each chapter building on the last, and she takes the time to comb through it all and lay it out fully for the reader. There is a lot of research behind this work, and Ms, Bevere uses it all, but in a way that teaches, not just wading through empty facts. I really enjoyed the style she uses in this work. This isn’t your typical “you are wonderful, go take on the world” book for women that one can find so easily on the shelves. This is a focused, intentional look at the enemy against us, and the preparations, legacy, weapons, and strategies for battle we must use in our fight. Ms. Bevere puts it so well when she says, “it is always better to choose your position through decisive action, then to have it chosen for you through passive default.” This work is a great blend of quotes from notable historical figures, verses from the Bible, and Ms. Bevere’s own thoughts and insights. All of them add up to great truths that inspired deep discussions while I read through the book. I look forward to reading through this one again, to dig deeper into things I may have only brushed before, and I look forward to gifting copies to my friends, to continue the good conversations that spring up!
