"Women Who Move Mountains" by Sue Detweiler

My review...

Detweiler’s latest is filled with stories from women who have overcome many things, so there is likely to be something relatable to every reader. In addition to the testimonies, there are numerous Bible verses throughout to reinforce the message. There are also prayers and questions for reflection to help the reader go even deeper. The author tries to demonstrate how it is possible to pray with confidence, boldness, and grace, and find freedom in Christ.

A twenty-one-day devotional guide to spiritual breakthrough is also included, which is a nice addition to the book. Each devotion includes a journal activity, a verse for meditation, the message, a prayer, and a declaration. This section was my favorite part of the book.

That said, this book wasn’t quite what I was expecting. It would be very useful in a women’s small group, and it is extremely important to have a Bible handy when reading this, as many of the verses referenced (especially those in the “application/reflection” sections) are not listed in the book itself. Therefore, I didn’t find this as user-friendly as other similar books I’ve read. However, there are links provided so the reader can go online to access bonus material, such as journaling pages, videos, and worksheets.

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy as part of the Bethany House blogger program, but I was not required to write a positive review.
