Book Review: Fight Like a Girl

Fight Like a Girl : The Power of Being a Woman

by Lisa Bevere (Warner Faith, 2006)

A book review by Susan Barnes

In her book, Fight Like a Girl, author and speaker 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. Bevere aims to present a more accurate view of women based on Biblical teaching. She points out the God-given strengths women have and how women are meant to come along side men rather than be in competition with them.

Bevere 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. Bevere uses examples from her own life which makes for interesting reading and practical teaching. I found the book easy to read, uplifting and encouraging.

Susan Barnes likes to think of herself as a writer who works part-time as a library technician. She has been writing devotional articles, book reviews and church news columns for over 15 years. She lives with her husband in a small town on the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia. She blogs at A Booklook.
