Beautiful Battlefields

Full Product Description

‘Beautiful Battlefields’ takes an unflinching looks at the battles women face today and encourages readers to find the hidden beauty in the most unlikely of places.

With the wisdom of a Biblical scholar and the humility of a close friend, Bo Stern invites women to take the time to reflect on scripture. In the midst of our battlefields, whether it’s a shattering diagnosis, broken relationships, financial difficulties or emotional heart-ache there is always hope and transformation to be found. Speaking from raw and real experience, Bo uses her battlefield of her husband’s ALS diagnosis to flesh out Romans 5:3-5.

“...We rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame...” – Romans 5:3-5.

Split into two section – the first helping you discover the beauty within your battlefield, the second offering strategies for growth whilst in the battle – this highly practical and thoroughly honest read is both encouraging and uplifting. Without belittling, over emphasizing our sweeping your struggles under the carpet, ‘Beautiful Battlefields’ will guide you towards transformational beauty in the transformational Person.

About the Author

Bo Stern is a mother of four and a wife to Steve. One of her greatest joys is recognizing the greater story in others’ lives and drawing out the glory and faithfulness of God from the trials of life. Long before her husband Steve was diagnosed with ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease), she dove deeply into the battles of Scripture to better understand the heart of God.

With a confidence born of this battle she and her family are still fighting, Bo wants women to understand that God can make us more beautiful than you’ve ever been because of the hard times we face. A teaching pastor at Westside Church in Bend, Oregon, she is also the author of a six-week Bible study called ‘The Joy Project’, currently used by churches, small groups, and the U.S. Army.

Beautiful Battlefields by Bo Stern was published by NavPress in March 2013 and is our 12744th best seller. The ISBN for Beautiful Battlefields is 9781612913193.

Publisher's Description

The Old Testament is filled with stories of war and the New Testament speaks clearly about battle and conflict in the life of the believer. Beautiful Battlefields will show readers that they can begin to find the beauty hidden in the most difficult and unlikely places. Beautiful Battlefields takes readers on a journey through some of the toughest terrain in life as it looks unflinchingly at the enemies women face today: broken relationships, broken dreams, financial crisis, deadly diagnoses, parenting heartaches, and all other furious storms that can hit without warning. Writing from years of biblical study and the battlefield of her husband's ALS diagnosis, the author walks the sacred ground of sorrow to find the hope that simmers beneath the surface of the most difficult seasons. For every woman who's ever faced or feared giants, Beautiful Battlefields offers compelling evidence that she doesn't have to fight alone and that God is doing something bigger than her eyes can see or her giant can stop. Filled with hope, this book gives courage to the hurting and faith to the fearful. "...We rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame..." Romans 5:3-5
