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.
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”
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!
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.
