First, I must admit that this is the first Beth Moore book that I have read. I have heard her speak before (during a marriage conference), but have not read anything written by her.
Overall, I liked the message of the book. It is very difficult to live in a holy manner given the ungodliness that we face everyday in modern society. This book helps to understand the challenge, and offers an approach to prepare for the spiritual battles that you may face. Her warning that mature Christians may face the toughest battles is well placed since we do not talk much about it within the Christian community. I particularly liked her one analogy of "the lion is in the yard" - this section of the book is well done.
The book also offers a plan of restoration particularly aimed at those believers who have veered from the straight and narrow path. Although her message is simple, it is biblically based and may be useful for someone who is not sure what to do about the mess they have made of their life.
My main negative about the book is that her writing is not very concise. She writes likes she talks and includes a few too many personal comments throughout the text. Having said that, it is just a minor distraction, not a major irritation.
This book offers a wake-up call to the church about sin. We face an enemy who is ruthless in his approach to destroy our lives, or distract us from our call to follow Jesus. By reading this book you will be prepare yourself for the battle we face. If you do not think that we are in a battle then I suggest you read this book in order to face up to the reality of the challenges Christians face, even mature ones.
