I read this book. I re-read this book. I took notes on each chapter. I used it in a small group study. I used it for family devotions. WHAT A KEEPER! This book is jam-packed with practical information about the spiritual battle we're engaged in daily.

I've read and studied a lot on spiritual warfare, so I expected more of the same in Beautiful Battle. However, this is a very practical book with just the right mix of theory and application. The author starts with a few chapters devoted to underst

Loved this book. Probably one of the best I've read this year. Loved how holistic she was in exploring spiritual warfare and that it wasn't a prescribed list of dos and don'ts. She explores how we try to fill ourselves up, our idols, and how spiritual warfare can be overt and covert at times (from distraction to discontentment). Also loved how each chapter ended with a prayer. Can't wait to read another of Mary DeMuth's books. Here's a quote from early on in the book that drew me in...

Somewhere between facing cancer and embracing God’s call on my life, I found myself unprepared for the spiritual warfare I faced. Looking for more training on how to use the weapons, I’ve been eagerly looking forward to Mary DeMuth’s new book, Beautiful Battle. It didn’t disappointed me. Nor would it disappoint any reader, who chose it from the back cover information.

We have a gaping God hole which we spend our entire lives trying to fill. Satan offers us many counterfeit fillers. For Mary, “sp

Like any Christian book it needs to be read critically & I still don't know where I sit with some of the things she said. However I found the book encouraging, challenging and inspiring. She has a different way of looking at things & the book is all about encouraging the reader to live in Christ, as he has already beaten satan.

Win a battle that rages

I actually bought this book on a whim. I am so glad that I did. If you ever want to really know how much Satan is trying to get you to do his will and not God's, READ THIS BOOK. What an eye opener.
Miss Demuth now has another fan for ever. You will not be disappointed for buying this book.

Every woman should read this book! Beautifully written, it gives voice to the struggles that all women face. Woven into the pages are lessons that can fill the empty or low-flowing soul. Without a doubt, the messages could even nourish the seemingly filled heart of the woman who thinks herself complete. As usual, Mary shines a light on that which can be dark and suffocating in our lives. Do yourself a favor and get this book!!!

Absolutely love Mary Demuth's authentic style of writing. I love the way she communicates and reveals her personality through her books and blogs. Her heart to reach to hurting people and reach to those of us who are 'healing' and 'stronger' because of our tough life experiences, shines through every page. Her message of love and grace is evident.
