Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bevere, an evangelical speaker and author known for tackling touchy topics with candor, wit and transparency, lays down the gauntlet again as she calls Christian women to cease trying to emulate men and embrace their feminine, strong nature. Bevere (Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry) offers women a clear alternative to society's take on the definition of true strength. Rather than relinquishing the power and influence that she believes women innately embody for the sake of mimicking men's overt physical strength, women can choose to wield their impact for good by way of subtler, more feminine speech and conduct. Bevere expounds upon the ways women fight best "as caretakers of others' hearts, by lifting another's spirit by speaking strength to their weaknesses, and wisely offering images of healthier, life-enhancing practices." She asserts that enemies often fall before influence rather than brute strength: "A gentle tongue can break a bone" (Prov. 25:15). Although some women will be put off by the book's gender-essentialist stance (e.g., women are by nature more tender and more spiritual, etc.), others will resonate with that message. All will appreciate Bevere's authenticity as she delves deep to unmask long-held misconceptions regarding women' uniqueness and untapped potential. (May)

I bought several of these for my Women's Ministry ladies. I think that if your goal is to take your women out of the pews and into the world to minister this book is a necessity. It is a confidence builder. Fight Like a Girl teaches you it is ok to be feminine, but feminine doesn't have to imply mindless and weak. This woman, Lisa Bevere is a cancer surviver, very athletic, travels the world, has a huge ministry and is the only woman in her household. She does all of this in the guise of a godly woman. We can walk in grace and be strong and that is a great lesson. Also my 13 is ripping right through this. She takes it with her wherever she goes and many of the girls in her Uth group want to borrow it...has to be something there.

"Fight Like a Girl" is empowering, honest and relateable. Once again, Lisa clearly communicates truths that so many women are searching for. In an understandable ways that encourages your intellect without insulting your intelligence, she encourages you to be the women you are. Femininity is strength. Kudos to Lisa for once again succeeding in reaching each and every generation and blessing them with a strength that can alter the course of their lives for the better!

This book really brought home some issues I thought I had already overcome. Very empowering and liberating for both men and women to read. Opened my eyes to more understanding of the subject and what women are up against and what it is going to take to get us back to where we belong as women.

Format: Hardcover
Lisa's new book Fight like a Girl changed my perspective on being a woman. I was raised to believe that in order to be strong as a woman, I needed to act like a man. This was a role I didn't understand or feel comfortable in. Lisa explains to us that is not a role we were meant to fill, that's why there are men! We are the most POWERFUL when we are being women. The enemy is not afraid of us when we are being weak in a position that is not ours to hold. Lisa talks about how some women don't like other women, how women view themselves as problems, looking at the difference between man and woman, and what position GOD has called us to hold. I have purchased this book for almost all of my friends and family. I would recommend this book for every woman.

After taking me the first 3 chapters to get going, I found that I couldn't put it down. I never really thought about how I fight and what I fight for. What an eye opener.

This book lifts women to aspire to live life without limits. It teaches how God gave Adam and Eve dominion over the animals but not over each other. It shows how they lived in perfect harmony and delighted in each others help and attributes. I found the teaching about how women are not so powerful when they try to fight like men very helpful. I learnt about how to use all the attributes God put in Eve to be strong instead. Putting the things I have learnt into practice has been a rewarding experience

Her books have been printed in over 20 languages worldwide. Her latest book, Lioness Arising: Wake Up and Change Your World, challenges women to find their purpose in life and use it to change the world. Lisa uses the image of a lioness to illustrate the courage, power, strength and the fearless life women are capable of living.

Nearly 20 years ago, Lisa and her husband John, also a bestselling author and speaker, founded Messenger International (www.MessengerInternational.org) in Orlando, Fla. Messenger International is an organization founded to inspire godliness and release people into fulfilled lives in Christ. The ministry relocated to Colorado Springs, Colo., in 2001 and since has grown internationally with offices in the United Kingdom and Australia.

In her transparent style, Lisa shares God's Word woven with personal experiences to empower lives with freedom and transformation. Her heart breaks over social injustice, and as an advocate for change, she rallies others to be an answer to desperate problems near and far.

When she's not out changing the world, Lisa resides in Colorado Springs, where she begins her days with mochas and ends them laughing around the dinner table with family. She enjoys riding her Ninja motorcycle with the love of her life, John, and spending time with their four sons, stunning daughter-in-law and adorable grandbaby.
