Book Review: War Room

                If you’ve seen the movie “The War Room” you may think you don’t need to read the book. I beg to differ. While you’ll know the end of the story, you glean so much inspiration from the book. While watching a movie, insightful comments slip right by as you’re carried into the next scene. But when you read the book, you can pause and let words sink in and inform your faith.

                The War Room is the fictional story of a real estate agent whose marriage is in trouble when she meets a client who believes in the power of prayer. That’s all I’ll say about the story, because I don’t want to spoil your reading. But this is truly inspirational reading since there is so much truth written on the pages of this novel.

                And if you’ve already read the book but not seen the movie, I encourage you to watch it. Priscilla Shirer (a Bible teacher and daughter of Tony Evans, a Christian pastor, speaker and author) plays the role of Elizabeth, the real estate agent, and does a marvelous job of it.

                I don’t read many novels, but this one packs a powerful wallop and reminds you that prayer is a powerful weapon. You’ll certainly be inspired to pray and to pray more specifically. Give it a read.
