Overcomer book

Facts

Overcomer by Dr David Jeremiah is a book for Christians. The sub-title is: 8 Ways to Live a Life of Unstoppable Strength, Unmovable Faith, and Unbelievable Power. This is first book that I have read by Dr David Jeremiah, who is a Best-selling author.

The book has 202 pages and 10 chapters. The book is written in a conversational style and is fairly easy to read. And, the author is writing to Christians who are teens or adults.

The book can be purchased as: hardback, paperback, Kindle, and audio. There is a DVD course and a workbook available, too.

Book Description

The term Overcomer is described in Chapter 1, with a biblical focus. The ten chapters describe things that a Christian will want to overcome. Ephesians 6: 10-18 is the Scripture reference he uses to describe what can be overcome.

The “eight strategies he shares will help the reader overcome life’s challenges:

  • How to overcome weakness with strength
  • How to overcome falsehood with truth
  • How to overcome evil with good
  • How to overcome anxiety with peace
  • How to overcome fear with faith
  • How to overcome confusion with wisdom
  • How to overcome temptation with Scripture
  • How to overcome everything with prayer”
Overcomer Review

Because God is good to us, He gives us a way to deal with everything that we’ll face in life. The chapters do provide the strategies to the above statements.

There are so many stories to help the reader understand the concepts that the author is teaching. There is a new story or example on each page. In fact, the pages in the back of the book (Notes) is 14 pages long!

Personal Opinion

Personally, I prefer many less stories and examples. If you like stories and examples, you’ll love this book. I found the numerous stories to be distracting and caused me to get lost as to what is the point. But, many readers may prefer this style of writing.

The book appeared to follow the Bible well and used the Scripture in a true sense. The Bible certainly teaches Christians how to become an overcomer in this world.

Never Let A Unicorn Scribble

Diane Alber wrote and illustrated this adorable book for children. The story is about a little girl and her unicorn. The little girl had heard that you should never let a unicorn scribble.

Her curiosity got the best of her and she gave the unicorn a crayon, which he quickly ate. After eating more of a crayon, the little girl attached crayons to the unicorn’s horn. His artistic creation sprayed all over the room, to her delight.

When her mother came, she worried about the mess. When she stepped back into the room with her mother the beautiful artwork was on her easel. Her imagination had run wild and she had painted the beautiful piece herself.

This is a sweet story about children using their imaginations. The illustrations are very colorful, bright, and imaginative. I can see why this is a best-selling book for children. The book is recommended for ages 3-7.

Welcome to Lisa’s Reading! My purpose is to serve you by providing great reviews that are good for your family. There are so many new books coming out every day. Because families have a unique desire to find wholesome books for their children and themselves, I want to offer those types of reviews.

Every family is different. Standards of acceptable books for their children can be different in each family. My book reviews will be sharing the book’s content: plot, characters, theme, and summary.

I have always loved reading. As a child, I had so much time to read and devoured books. As a young mother, finding time to read was difficult. Reading for myself became a luxury. Now that I’m retired, reading can again be a big part of my life.

Wherever you are in life, reading can be a wonderful part of it. I hope that you’ll come here to find a fun conversation about books. Welcome!
