Sometimes it is hard to find the words to describe a non-fiction book that challenged you, inspired you, and made you think in new ways. . . You want to tell everyone why they should read the book too, but can’t exactly put into words how it affected you and why it will affect them. “Adamant: Finding Truth in a Universe of Opinions” is bestselling author Lisa Bevere’s new release from Revell, and is unquestionably a book that is destined to influence women of all ages, initiate lasting change, and inspire the quest for truth within our hearts.
I absolutely love the overarching concept of this book: the Adamant. In the first chapter Lisa explains how this word, which began as a noun, is based in ancient and mythical history. It represented an elusive mineral that, as revealed in legends, was impenetrable and unbreakable; hard beyond measure and yet irresistible; simultaneously attractive and repellent; capable of gathering light and redirecting the rays; and so much more. For millennia, people have searched for this mythical adamant but always failed. . . Unless, Lisa asks, “What was the origin of this quest? Was this concept of the adamant a seed of inspiration planted by God? Why dream of what no one had yet seen, and why refer to the unknown? Or is this stone among us and unrecognized… Could the purpose of the adamant be to mine what is hidden within us… something that was constant? Immovable? Invincible? Unchanging… In Christ, all that the Greeks and the mystics looked for was realized. He is our Rock, our Cornerstone, and our long-awaited Adamant.”
Lisa then goes on to passionately share her God-inspired knowledge and wisdom of how we can incorporate this concept of the Adamant into our lives in ways that will transform the world, beginning inside us, with love, truth, our words, holiness, and more. As she shares, she holds nothing back. Tough issues are discussed in detail, and it honestly takes courage to read this book and let it sink into your heart. But if we truly listen for the messages that God has specifically for each of us, I think we will all be able to “Live in wonder of the immovable, invincible, impervious, adamant Cornerstone who longs to astound you with his loving faithfulness.”
I wholeheartedly recommend this transformative book, and encourage you to step into the pages and begin to discover the depths of the True Adamant for yourself… It has been with us, inside of us, for always, and it will give us the courage to dream that we too can be adamant, immovable, invincible women. Adamant daughters of our Lord.
