War Room by: Chris Fabry (Book Review)


Tyndale Blog Network
Disclosure: Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
 
War Room is an extraordinary book about living a life in today's world.  To the outside world, everything looks perfect for a married couple named Tony and Elizabeth Jordan.  Their struggles run deep though to problems in their marriage, home and family.  There are real life situations presented including temptation and deception, but there is the best solution presented.
 
Elizabeth meets Miss Clara, an older woman who calls herself a prayer warrior and shows Elizabeth her War Room.  The War Room is Miss Clara's favorite spot in her home, where she goes to pray for others and herself and talk to God.  Elizabeth soon discovers the power of faith, prayer and the belief that God can do mighty things in our lives once we invite Him in.  She even creates her own War Room!
 
This book brings about emotions that many people can relate to.  It is told from the perspective of the three main characters mentioned, including the husband, Tony.  Tony does the biggest turn around in this story, thanks to the power of prayer.  There are many parts that are down right funny, and other parts where my heart was pumping in anticipation to see what would happen next.  There are unexpected twists and a powerful message delivered at the end of the book.
 
I very much enjoyed this book, and would highly recommend it.  The book also has some color pictures of the film it is based on, so you get more of a visualization of who the characters are and what they look like.  This book can be appreciated by anyone, especially those going through a hard time in their lives.  It offers hope and encouragement, and the understanding that you are not going through things alone.
 
I had heard the term, payer warrior at my old church and it is no joke. The full title of this book, is War Room: Prayer is a Powerful Weapon.  Prayer is powerful, and it is a weapon against the devil.  When we pray, we show God the faith that not only do we believe in Him, but also that we want His will done in our lives.  Speaking from experience, prayer has saved my life and my family in so many ways.  I thank God everyday for the ways He has changed my life.
 
To find out more information on this book or other titles available, please check out Tyndale House Publishers.
 
I was so excited about reading this book because it is based on a Motion Picture by Alex Kendrick and Stephen Kendrick, who co-wrote amazing Christian films such as Fireproof, Courageous, and Facing the Giants.  The movie stars Priscilla Shirer and Beth Moore. If the movie is anything like the book (and I think it will be from seeing the movie trailer), people are in for an eye-opening journey that will leave you with a tear in your eye and cheering for joy!

  5. I have read other reviews about this too but more about the movie and seems like they are promoting it using the name of Beth Moore but she has a very small part in it. Still making my mind up about this one as there are so many review against as well as for it.
