Lioness Arising by Lisa Bevere--Book Review

Lioness Arising--Wake Up and Change the World by Lisa Bevere.
ISBN 978-0-307-45778-3  Published by Waterbrook Press

Lioness Arising is a Christian book for women.  It  focuses on the importance of women leaders in the church.  It's very inspiring.

The author, Lisa Bevere, starts the book out with telling us of a vision she had in a dream.  That vision--the voice of God---telling her to be a lioness.  Go out and teach others to also be a lioness.

There is a lot of controversy out there between different religious denominations on whether it's Biblical for women to be leaders in the church.  On a personal note, there are many women leaders in my home church.  Even I am on the church council and am starting my 3rd term as such.

Lisa used the example of the lions and lionesses throughout the book.  I found this all to be very eye opening and interesting.  An education within an education let's call it.

Many supporting Bible verses are quoted throughout the book.

I really enjoyed reading the book, and as I said, was very inspired by it.  There is one part that sticks out the most to me about the book.  It reads that if you walk into a church and there is no greeting or interaction between members....walk back out!   The feeling of family is very important within the church and for spreading the Gospel.  

I recommend this book.  It would be a great read for a women's leadership conference...or to be given to the women attending to read before the conference.  I will be passing the book along to other women in my church, just haven't decided who to start with.  The majority of the women members are already active within the church.
