Daybreak by Nathan WardThis week the Cross Focused Reviewers are participating in a book review blog tour for Daybreak: A Guide to Overcoming Temptation by Nathan Ward. Excerpts and links to the reviews will appear below as they are available:

Daybreak is a clarion call for the body of Christ to be the holy and chaste bride we are called to be throughout Scripture. This is not an easy fight as it will involve actively engaging the enemy by the power of the Holy Spirit working in the life of the believer… Ward provides a powerful tool for readers to have at their disposal to live a life of holiness, to understand who this spiritual battle is being fought against, and to live in victory through the power of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

“One of the best and most succinct books that I have read on temptation. Nathan Ward does a fabulous job of biblically laying out how we as Christians should view temptations in light of the Gospel”
Reviewer: Joshua Davis (GoodReads.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“It’s often been said one of the best ways to prepare for battle is not just to know your strategy, but to know the opponent’s strategy. Professional teams study their opponents habits and plays for hours upon hours so they understand how to attack. Ward very practically examines the nature of the enemy and reveals how we can prepare for the battles of temptation that lie ahead.”

“Overall the book had just enough depth to keep a seminary grad involved and just enough explanation to allow the average church-goer access as well.”
Reviewer: Jon Roberts (GoodReads.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“This book is not so much a “how to” book as much as it is a plea, a call for each one of us to want to live lives pleasing to our God.”
Reviewer: Joanne Viola (daysnthoughts.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“I really enjoyed this book, it’s important to remember that we are to be shining lights, reflecting Him, the one who made us. The darkness is where evil and sin hides, when God shines His light the sin is exposed. This book is aptly titled. Nathan Ward, in this book discusses what holiness is, who our enemy is (both Satan and ourselves). Mr. Ward also covers the topic of temptation.”

“This book will educate, convict and transform.”

“This is a little book, but one that grabs you. Lots to contemplate as you read too. I admit to being rather surprised at all the questions, all the scripture – the many gems within this book that really made me think about my sin. And the things that tempt me. Where am I? Am I overcoming?”

“Sunset and sunrise are the bookends of Jacob’s time of exile. Hidden in the very structure of the story is the message that times of testing and trial are periods of darkness, but once one surrenders to God (symbolized by the injured hip) daylight returns. Jacob won by losing, because his real struggle was with himself. Surrender to God brings the sunrise of victory. That little insight alone was to me worth the time I spent reading this book.” Reviewer: Barry Simmons (journeymansfiles.blogspot.com)

“The foundation of the book is that we have to give up our “self”. We have to die to ourselves and give our lives over to God. It’s not easy. Sometimes it’s not fun. But it’s extremely rewarding. And Nathan Ward is giving us some great tips and encouragement on how to live this life, and open ourselves up – to Daybreak.”

“My favorite part was learning how to fight temptation in every way. I need to learn those ways. I also liked the use of Bible verses and references to where I could find the information in the Bible. It was important in a book like this to have the verses, so we could see the proof ourselves.”

“The research is solid, it follows Biblical principles in the advice the author gives, and it leaves nothing out—despite its compact size.”
Reviewer: Kimberly Noble (handcuffstohairbows.wordpress.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“I would recommend this astounding book on overpowering temptations to anyone who is struggling with any type of temptations and they are seeking to discover freedom from satan’s power. I believe, Nathan’s stance on actually deciding ahead of time that you will display integrity before you are in the battle of temptation will ultimately assist readers in obtaining liberty.”

“This book gives a handle for the Christian desiring more victory over sin and in turn, a closer walk with his God.”
Reviewer: Cheryl Frerichs (thykingdomcometoday.wordpress.com)
Rating: 5 Stars

“The book is short and concise. Scripture is used correctly, instead of passages clipped here and there to compliment the prose. The content is full of wisdom. It is not groundbreaking material, but it is full of truth. It is absolutely worth the read. Buy it and be blessed.”
