Bold Bible Teacher Empowers Women to Live Free from Comparison and Rivalry

In this day of challenge and opportunity, women have been the victims of constant comparison and rivalry. It has robbed the church of the feminine voice and contribution that would make her strong.

In a wild, vibrant, and relatable style, Lisa challenges women to:
· embrace the fact that God loves us uniquely rather than equally
· realize their undisputed calling
· reconnect to their divine identity
· dismantle the rivalries that keep us from God's fullness

There has never been a more desperate need for each of us to discover who and why we are a daughter without rival, loved by a God without rival, entrusted with a promise without rival, to complete an assignment without rival, that is destined for an eternity without rival.

Includes questions for personal reflection and small group discussion, plus additional questions designed for use with Insights to a Life Without Rival video sessions.

Now a New York Times bestseller!

    My wife flagged up both this book and John Bevere's Insta on it and I bought the Kindle for her; as it seems to come on both iPads, I got it too and am reading it. It's another Bevere book, brilliantly and punchily written; it matters not who writes it, the Church is blest from either pen. As with many other books that have a specific gender intended, it's often the case that those for whom it WASN'T written would benefit from reading it, with obvious reference alterations. Rivalry kills the spirit in many men just as with women. So swallow your pride guys and give it a read, at least so you know how the female in your household will be as the book closes.

    I have only read the first chapter, and I have already received the revelation that God did not make me to be in comparison with others, because I was uniquely created by Him, He loves me uniquely. I am who I am because He made me that way and loves me as I am. Love it! By the time I have finished the book, I will definitely be a new creation, with a renewed mind of thinking! YAY!! :-)

    Without Rival by Lisa Bevere is a marvellous book looking at what it means to be a woman of God without rival. I always enjoy Lisa Bevere's books as not only are they full of godly truths but also full of common sense. Lisa Bevere talks about things that I really should know but need reminding of.Lisa Bevere talks about how God does not love us equally but uniquely. If we were equally loved, it would mean we were replaceable - and we're not. "I don't love my children equally. I love them uniquely." As earthly parents we love our children uniquely too, none of them are replaceable. To quote St Augustine "God loves each one of us as if there were only one of us."We also need to know whose we are. If we know that we belong to God, we can feel secure, knowing we are loved without rival. It is not just enough to know about God, we need to know Him. We also need to remember not only to talk to God but to be quiet and listen to Him. "There is a vast difference between talking about God and listening to a God who talks to you."There is a section on dreams. We are never too old to dream. If God places a dream in your heart, chase after it, pursue it. Never be put off by man. "It is far better to know God than to be known by man."Lisa Bevere shows the importance of us all pulling together. If we see each other as rivals and there is no unity, then we are doing the devil's work for him. "The more we do his (Satan's) work, the less he has to do." Work with other Christians and not against them.There is a section on the importance of being a woman. Women were never meant to be second class citizens to men. God created man and woman to be equal but different. Lisa Bevere gives stories of brave Christian women, including the woman at the well. Their stories inspire the reader. We should not fear man but we should have a healthy fear of God who has the power over life and death.The book discusses the depth of our faith. Do we have a deep faith? Or a wishing well faith? Are we drawing closer to God? Or just paying lip service?We are all subject to attacks from the enemy. We are all in a spiritual battle. If the enemy can get us to focus on our past, then we will not be looking forward into the future God has planned for us. We need to learn from the lessons of our past and remember that there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus.There is a chapter on love as described in 1 Corinthians: 13. We are to love like that. We are never meant to judge people. We are meant to love them and leave any judging or changing in God's hands.Once again Lisa Bevere has produced a fabulous book designed to help the reader in their walk with God. At the end of each chapter are some questions to help the reader look inside themselves and to draw closer to god in their own personal walk.A wonderful read. Highly recommended.I received this book for free in exchange for a fair and honest review. No monetary compensation was received and all views expressed are my own.

    Great book! This one really made me think.We can break free of the rivallry we feel in so many areas of our life, our friendships, our relationships and even in our churches.I particularly enjoyed reading Lisa's thoughts on women preaching, i know lots has already been written about this, but her words struck a particular chord with me. I found reassurance on how I have felt about doing this in the past.I also loved reading about the early Christian women she mentions towards the end of the book. They were true warriors for Christ.This book left me feeling reassured that our God is a God without rival, and that I can break free from the rivalry so in my life."God doesn't love us equally, he loves us uniquely."Thanks net galley for a wonderful review copy of this book!
