LitFuse Publicity: Beautiful Battlefields by Bo Stern

on March 12, 2013

About the Book:

Where is God in the midst of this? 
You’ve probably heard that question or perhaps asked it yourself. In the battle for your joy, your marriage, your finances, your health, an emptiness creeps in. Where is the peace You promised, God?
Bo Stern has been there-and is still there. Yet in studying the battles in Scripture, she came to a startling conclusion: God is using these fierce fights in our lives for an astonishing purpose.
You can purchase the book on Amazon.
About Bo Stern:

Bo Stern knows the most beautiful things can come out of the hardest times. Her Goliath came in the form of her husband’s terminal illness, a battle they are still fighting with the help of their four children, a veritable army of friends, and our extraordinary God. Bo is a teaching pastor at Westside Church in Bend, Oregon.

You can visit Bo at her website: Bo Stern

My Opinion:

I wasn’t sure what to expect at first, usually when I’ve read books by  a female pastor they’ve left a lot to be desired but not with Bo Stern’s book – this book is excellent.  Many of us will fact challenges and trials, after all Christ didn’t promise us a bowl full of cherries life, but He did promise that if we take up His yoke our load will be light.  If you haven’t encountered a challenge or battle, then that is great, but please don’t become complacent in your life.  I have to say that even I haven’t encountered a huge battle – I’ve lost loved ones like all of my Grandparents and Great Grandparents, I’ve lost a baby – to date I think my biggest battle has been my oldest daughter’s scoliosis.

Whether you’re facing the loss of a spouse from a terminal illness, as Bo is, or a loss of a friendship, a divorce, a wayward child – Bo has written a book that can speak and be a balm to our soul.  I’ve come across several lines I need to go back and high light as I know they will bring comfort if I get hit with a bigger storm, say major back surgery for my daughter.  People, even Christians, sometimes wonder if God loves us why doesn’t He stop all this bad stuff – Bo answers that with a Biblical response and the reader will come away knowing that the Lord loves them.
