There is a reason we look at others as rivals and limit ourselves to comparison and competition. We have an enemy assaulting our mind, will, and emotions in the hope that we'll turn on ourselves and each other. It's a cycle that isolates us from intimate connections, creates confusion about our identity, and limits our purpose.
In Without Rival, bestselling author Lisa Bevere shares how a revelation of God's love breaks these limits. You'll learn how to stop seeing others as rivals and make the deep connections with your Creator you long for--connections that hold the promise of true identity and intimacy. With biblically sound teaching filled with prophetic insight for our day, Lisa uses humor and passion to challenge you to
· Flip rivalry so it brings out the best in you
· Stop hiding from conversations you need to be a part of
· Answer the argument that says women are unfit, easily deceived, and gullible
· Dismantle gender rivalry and work with the men in your life
It's time to step forward to live a life without rival.

VictoriaCanadaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Without RivalDecember 15, 2016VictoriaCanadaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Without Rival is my first introduction to Lisa's work and it was certainly an introduction. Tackling the topic of rivalry is not an easy one but Lisa presents a well rounded approach to the topic that feels full of openness and common sense wisdom. Lisa's personality seemed to leap out off the pages, allowing me, a relative newbie to her work, to more easily enter her work and assisted me in looking through her eyes. Lisa's passion for women and their ability to live vibrantly within God's calling on their life shows on each page.
I personally enjoyed the variety of ways and the thoroughness which Lisa brought to her book. Whether it was looking at gender issues, self image, our understanding of God, or even the value of rivalry Lisa laid out intriguing lessons and arguments regarding her views on the role these aspects should vs. how they do play out in everyday life. Her layout, especially in the first half of the book was also helpful as the chapters felt more connected and strengthened by one another.
While there are areas where are theology diverges(mostly in the final chapters), Without Rival sticks close to scripture for much of its inspiration allowing the majority of the book to appeal beyond denomination preference.

Tatyana2 Stars Out Of 5It's ok...November 23, 2016TatyanaQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0The writing style in this book is not my cup of tea.
I did gift it to several friends- who loved it and now are buying more copies to pass it on.
Overall, not my kind of book, but is good for someone who is struggling with comparison. Lisa gives a lot of life examples, so this book will grab attention of your non reader friends.
If you have a friend who is struggling with this issue, the book is an excellent christmas gift for her.
Books4JesusBrookfield, WIAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5RefreshingNovember 9, 2016Books4JesusBrookfield, WIAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This is the first book I have read by Lisa, and I loved it. I am putting the rest of her books on my reading list.
Lisas premise is that because we are daughters of an unrivaled God, we have identity without rival, live with a promise without rival, and we are without rival. We as women find it easy to compare, easy to look at the outside and judge without knowing the beauty of the woman or the depth of her suffering.
Lisa expounds on the theme that we are to love others, even when they disappoint us. Because people always disappoint. She states Disappointment is fostered when expectations are not met. Love believes the best, which differs vastly from demands the best. When you expect the best and they do less, you are disappointed. When you believe the best and they do less, then you understand their story is not yet over. A new way of viewing others and having grace for myself.
I really enjoyed her chapter on the difference on being a deep well that refreshes, and a wishing well, a well of empty wishes. The entire book was a refreshing read.
