Kingdom Woman by Tony Evans and Chrystal Hurst

I received a copy of this book for free to review. I am so glad I did! This book pairs very complimentary with another book we were using in our small group study. This book, Kingdom Woman, by Tony Evans and Chrystal Evans Hurst, helps show God's love in obvious and tangible ways. It reminds us that God uses the imperfect in his perfect plan. The authors remind us that "Happiness is...a benefit- not the goal or driving force of destiny for a kingdom woman" (Pg6). Evans also points out that, "the church has settled for buildings and programs instead if teaching men and women how to access the authority of the kingdom" (pg7). So many times I have felt devoid I that area, but at a loss for what to do to fix the issue of the focus being on "doing" church instead of operating in the kingdom and "being" the church, or bride of Christ. My husband and I are trying to work in the direction of operating from a kingdom perspective. We want our desires to be second to the ones God has for his Kingdom. It isn't an easy choice, especially in a consumer driven society. But as this book and others in the kingdom point out, our blessings are not all for our consumption. That is something the deceiver has been good at deceiving well meaning Christians to think. I look forward to re-reading this and doing it as a study with a friend or two for some good discussion. 

Q & A with the authors of this book!- On why this book, what it is about, why it is different, etc.

Author Memes- Good quotes from the book to get a feel for what it is about.
