Beautiful Battlefields by Bo Stern – Book Review
Have you ever gone through something so heart-wrenching that you’ve wondered – if only for a moment – how a loving God could allow something like this to happen?
Are you in the midst of a battle so huge that your faith is stretched beyond measure on a daily basis?
No matter what circumstances you find yourself in, take heart – you are not alone!
Bo Stern knows what it’s like to battle giants. She is currently in the fight of her life as she and her husband wage war against ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) – a disease for which there is currently no cure.
Yet even in the midst of her battle, she is there to uphold and uplift you during yours through the release of her wonderfully encouraging book, Beautiful Battlefields.
Beautiful Battlefields will guide and strengthen you through your darkest of days. The book is divided into two parts:
- Part One, Discovering Beauty In The Hard Places, reaffirms God’s goodness and shows how God uses trials to create beautiful things in our lives. These chapters will bless you as Bo shares lessons from others who have successfully faced their battles, and help you to draw strength from your own life as you learn to apply biblical wisdom to your situation.
- Part Two, Strategies For Growing Stronger Through Every Battle, teaches us how to navigate through all aspects of our battle and to avoid battle wounds such as bitterness that can affect us long after we’ve left the battlefield.
In addition to the personal lessons she shares, Beautiful Battlefields includes questions to ponder, activities to complete, and Scriptures to prepare for battle.
If you or someone you know is in need of a deeply moving book that will speak to your heart and nourish your spirit – I highly recommend Beautiful Battlefields.

An excellent review. I’ve fought on those battlefields and would have loved to have a copy to guide me through it. I have a couple of people in mind who would be good to gift one to.
Thank you Pamela – this would be a wonderful gift for someone going through a difficult time.
I really loved this book – it will be one I will refer back to often!
tough situation, and I’m always amazed that someone can take time away from their place in it to actually write an entire book !
Isn’t it amazing? I guess it’s true – we really can do all things through Christ, who strengthens us!
Have a blessed day! 🙂
