Reviewed by Joana James for Readers' Favorite

"No Weapon" is a book that shows how easily jealousy and gossip can destroy the life of a person, a church and even a community. Young Sidney Lyons is doing well and the Lord is preparing her for His use. Several visiting preachers notice this and prophesy to the young lady, even asking her Pastor to nurture her. However, because of jealousy and later, demonic obsession, he launches a campaign to destroy her instead. Several people are hired to find dirt on Sidney. They hack into her social networking accounts and email and place surveillance equipment on her car as in her home. Her job is targeted and even her own aunt gets in on the whole game. But Sidney was not forgotten. The Lord sent her a protector to help her through her situation.

The premise of this book may be a bit terrifying but it is very close to the truth. It is a warning about the dangers of jealousy and gossip. Very often, we hear only a tiny bit of information regarding a situation and we create our own impression of the whole. People’s characters and lives are destroyed because of our ignorance. No weapon is a real eye-opener. Some Pastors are so threatened by their flock that instead of nurturing them as they should, they stifle their gifts. This was a very interesting read which held my attention to the end. I found myself rooting for the heroine and almost praying for her. I highly recommend this read for any Christian.
