Lisa Bevere’s newest book, Lioness Arising is a powerful wake-up call for Christian women. Stemming from a vision that God gave her years ago, Bevere introduces the lioness as a point of comparison to illustrate women’s potential power, passion, prowess, and purpose once they are stirred awake.
Lioness Arising is theologically ground-breaking. It challenges long-held beliefs about the role of women in the church. As a proponent of gender equality, Bevere advocates for women as viable members of the body of Christ with God-given gifts and roles to fulfill. Women will begin to release the weight of religious baggage that has kept them in their so-called place.
Bevere speaks to the multi-dimensionality of women’s roles, such as that of wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters of God. She encourages women to be fierce in protecting all children, acquire night vision to rescue those caught in the grip of darkness, to nurture other women, and to advocate for the voiceless. Christian women will be inspired to fearlessly stand up and step into position as joint heirs with men of God’s promises and bearers of His light.
This book introduces a change into the landscape of Christian thinking concerning women’s role in ministry. It has been anticipated by countless women who have known deep down inside that they have been created to be world-changers. As a true spiritual mentor bent on helping women realize that they are God’s creative answer to the problems the world is facing, Bevere shares sketches of personal experiences in her own spiritual journey. With solid biblical grounding throughout its entirety, this book will motivate women to awaken, rise up, lift their individual and collective voice and fulfill their God-given purpose to make a difference in the world.
