Love in the Face of ISIS (Review)
This review is for the book "Love in the Face of ISIS" by Lorraine Marie Varela. This book contains seven prayer strategies for the crisis in the Middle East, and it is awesome information that you can transfer to any situation. Varela gives readers the background of ISIS and how it came to be in a clear, concise introduction. In the rest of the book she gives multiple examples of how people used prayer to effectively defeat enemies in the Bible. She discusses how to pray in order to release the presence of God, the armies of God, the protection of God, perseverance for the people of God, the provision of God, the healing of God, and the peace of God. She puts scripture and biblical stories into each chapter, but she also weaves stories of ISIS in so that you can see what effect ISIS has on people all over the world.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a good read that I easily understood and it is really useful, especially for the times we are in right now.
Thank you to Chosen Publishers for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
