Review: Adamant: Finding Truth In A Universe of Opinions by:Lisa Bevere

Adamant: Finding Truth in a Universe of Opinions

About the Book:
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 Times bestselling 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 Review:
 Lisa Bevere in her typical all knowing truth fashion delivers a literary masterpiece. She takes Biblical truths and knocks it out pf the proverbial ballpark. Adamant, is not only an adjective but an actual noun. It means much more than we all realize and the author goes about showing us all of this in a very fundamental way. A way in which you will never forget.

 The definition of adamant is refusing to be persuaded--this is something we should all strive to be, especially when we are talking about one's spiritual journey or walk in this life. Forged in Christ--unmovable and unshaken. Christ is that to us and what better way can we give Him the same courtesy. As we let God transform us into what He needs and wants us to be we learn many things about Him and ourselves and Adamant shows us how.
