Every Single Woman's Battle...

I just read Every Single Woman's Battle by Shannon Ethridge. I was kind of disappointed. Partially because I've already read Every Woman's Battle which was ok. This book was kind of meant to be a companion guide to that book (though it claims to be sufficient on its own), so I had basically already read it. That's the other reason I was disappointed was because there was nothing new in this book. It was literally just quotes from Every Woman's Battle and Every Man's Battle. I do admit that the questions for discussion were very good, and if you can find a group which is actually capable of openly and honestly discussing this type of struggle, it could be a very useful tool. I do admire the author's commitment to her work. Sexual struggles for women isn't a very popular subject. The author fights some of the myths and misconceptions of women's battles.

Each chapter of this book is broken down into a few sections. It is introduced by quoting a passage or two from the books I listed above. Then the reader is challenged to examine their own lives to discover where they are struggling. Then they have a section for group discussion, and every chapter is finished off with a prayer. I have to give this book about a 3 out of 5 stars, but I highly recommend reading and discussing it while you read Every Woman's Battle.

I received this book for free as a part of the Blogging For Books program with the publisher. I was not required to write a postive review.
