Adamant: Finding Truth in a Universe of Opinions by Lisa Bevere

35086525Adamant: Finding Truth in a Universe of Opinions

By ancient definition, the adamant was known as both a diamond and a mythical stone of indestructible wonder. In more modern terminology, it describes a posture of unshakeable resolve and determination. If there was ever a time for us to be adamant about love and truth it is now. God is Love. God is Truth. Both love and truth are timeless, transcending our current trends and opinions. Sometimes the most loving thing we will ever do is to speak the truth, but speaking truth begins with living it.

Using the mediums of Scripture and story, New York Timesbestselling author Lisa Bevere takes readers on a journey into the Mountain of God, to the one place they can learn not only to abide in God's unshakeable truth and love, but become adamant--people who are unmovable, determined, and steadfast. With conviction and passion, Lisa unpacks the concept of the adamant for readers, linking together the grand story of Scripture and God's purpose in their lives. Readers will see that God's plan is revealed as we dwell in him, it is there that we are forged and shaped. As we abide in Christ our Cornerstone we are shaped into the image of the adamant.

My Thoughts:
Lisa Bevere is a great voice in women's ministry and ministry in general. She writes with truth and conviction. She speaks of truth straight from the word of God and leaves you wrestling, but gaining huge wisdom and knowledge on topics in your life. Adamant is no different! This book is full of truth. In a world where everything is relevant, Lisa isn't trying to be relevant, she is standing with conviction and standing firm on truth. This is a book that is relevant for our culture and for Christians who long to stand on the truth. This is a book that everyone must read! I give this book 5/5 stars. I can't wait to read it again. I highly, recommend you read this. A favorable review was not required for a copy and all opinions expressed are my own.
