I learned a lot of things in reading this book,mainly the concept of disciplining the mind, and of "renewing one's mind" through Scripture. It intrigues and scares me a little bit too, to think that many spiritual battles can be fought in our thoughts, and that we develop patterns of thought unconsciously, for the most part.
It’s the kind of book you go back to read, It has helped me deal with issues of like anxiety, worrying too much and the difficult conditions of the mind in general. Particularly about things I can't control anyway. I guess that’s how she came to the title, the battlefield of the mind. The book teaches me (I'm still working on this issue.) how to lean on God, how to, as people say, let go and let God. The result is a peace that surpasses all understanding.
Joyce Meyers writes with such simplicity for such a complicated subject. The book is broken down in chapters, each dealing with an aspect of the mind, It is an easy read in the sense that her writing is plain and to the point. I’m not a big fan of Joyce Meyer , she’s a international tv speaker and health and wealth oriented, but the book is drenched in scriptures, so I guess it’s ok lol anyways she supports her beliefs with scriptures , which I love, since, as Christians, we are to be rooted in the Word if we are to overcome battlefields.
