"Lioness Arising" by Lisa Bevere

"Lioness Arising" by Lisa Bevere

In "Lioness Arising" the author describes
a vision she had while pregnant with her 4th son - a vision she believes was a revelation from God. In the vision she saw "radiant light everywhere", and a perfect lioness on a platform with "Numbers XXIII" written under it. She finds what she is looking for in verse 24. Later she feels the Lord telling her, "...with the birth of your son, you will awaken a lioness."

From here she takes the reader on a journey to study the lioness (reading, watching, observing) and she spent a large portion of the book sharing what she has discovered with the reader and comparing her findings to women.

The underlying theme is that Christian women throughout the world need to unite, especially within the church, as leaders - this is the only way the world will become a better place.

My thoughts...
I really enjoyed the first couple chapters of the book. It was captivating, and empowering & really wanted me to become a better Christian woman.

But then I just got bored, I started to dread reading the book & really no longer felt empowered, but just tired of reading the same old, same old. I would recommend this book for someone who is active in practicing their religion, and is in need of some feminine boost!

Looking back, something I really enjoyed were the famous quotes she published throughout the book - those were very uplifting & enjoyable. I also really enjoyed learning more about lionesses throughout the book - they really are a magnificent animal, and I would love to be compared to one someday.

Thank you so much to Blogging for books & and Waterhouse Multnomah for sending me a copy of this book! I look forward to reading more books from you in the future!
