It is a must read.
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.
4 out of 5 stars

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.
