8 Ways to Live a Life of Unstoppable Strength
Unmovable Faith, and Unbelievable Power
By Dr. David Jeremiah
This is a collection of stories about those who have overcome hardships in life. Those who do what many thinks is impossible. The stories are about different people in the Bible and those that you may have heard about in the news and those not in the news. Stories of King David and Saul, stories of many who achieved great things after having a bad start in life and shows how our faith in God is a major help. The stories are very interesting to read and show just how, with God's help, we can become an overcomer as well. Dr. Jeremiah shares things that have happen to him over his years of ministry and of people he knows. Each chapter contains stories that fit with the armor of God that we need to be wearing and each part of the armor is explained in detail, adding to the stories that are shared. Each chapter end with a Bible verse that are uplifting and will give you something to think about.
Here is a quote from the book about overcoming;
"Jesus overcame the one who held the power of death, the devil, and freed us from the fear of death.
Because of Jesus, we can clothe ourselves and stand in joyful triumph. Just when it seemed humanity was overcome by death, Satan was overcome by Christ. Doubt was overcome by truth, and grief was overcome by joy."
The book is well written and has a lot of information about many different subjects. It can be used in discussion groups, as a Bible study or just for a casual reading.

Nancy5 Stars Out Of 5Overcomer 8 ways to live a life of Unstoppable Strength, Unmovable Faith and Unbelievable Power by David JeremiahOctober 22, 2018NancyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Overcomers is written by David Jeremiah. He is a pastor in San Diego and has a radio and TV program called Turning. Point. He also has daily devotions for all to enjoy on his website. He is a well respected author and pastor. This book Overcomer is excellent. It tells the believer how to live out the Ephesians chapter 6 on the armor of God. It is well written and very practical. The 8 ways to overcome are: Overcoming weakness with strength, overcoming falsehood with truth, overcoming evil with good , overcoming fear with faith, overcoming confusion with wisdom, overcoming temptation with scripture, overcoming everything with prayer, overcoming everything with life. He reminds us to bring everything to God in prayer and use daily triggers to remind yourself to constantly turn to God in prayer. We are to make sure we daily put on the armor of God so we are ready to face the battles and arrows coming at us. He have practical examples in each chapter of people who have overcome their challenges . He refers to the struggling milkman in the Fiddler on the Roof by how He keeps his mind constantly in contact with God. WE need to make sure we have on the helmet of salvation to protect our head from the darts of the enemy. We have to have the sword of the spirit constantly on our minds to be ready for other darts. The shield of faith is to protect our breast plate. We are to wear the belt of truth to avoid any lies. Another example of an overcomer is Dietrick Bonhoeffer who ended up being martyred for his faith. He has peace while in prison for his faith which surpassed any circumstance because of his contact with God. Will you be an overcomer ? This book is a wonderful tool for any Christian.

Sandra Burson5 Stars Out Of 5A Must ReadOctober 7, 2018Sandra BursonQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Dr. David Jeremiah is one of my favorite Preacher/Teachers to watch on TV. I have read some of his previous books and found them very helpful. Therefore, I was very excited when OVERCOMER was released.
This is a book I will reread several times. I have highlighted so many passages, it looks as if my entire book is highlighted. Dr. Jeremiah has taken one of my favorite passages (Ephesians 6:10-18). With his spiritual knowledge and love of scripture he explains Paul's letter to the church in Ephesus. If you have wondered about the armor or weapons listed and their uses, you will want to read this book. We do not have to be defeated. God has given us all we need to fight our battles. It's time that we claim the promises in God's word. Just as the title says, we can be OVERCOMERS. Dr. Jeremiah, as he tells in his book, has faced some life changing obstacles, having Hodgkin Lymphoma and now being cancer free. His book "When Your World Falls Apart" was a big help and so encouraging when my husband got his diagnoses. I can not say enough about OVERCOMER. I feel every Christian should read this book. I believe it would make a wonderful gift.
I was given a copy of this book by Thomas Nelson through NetGalleys.
