The Good Fight, written by Shareta Green, is a Christian book that aims to help those struggling in life. It also aims to show the reader that God is the source of everything. And in the author’s words, The Good Fight "will show you how to stand and win your battles, have hope, and walk in victory with Christ."

Throughout the book, Shareta discusses various topics, such as identity, relationships, and health. She backs up most of her teachings with Bible quotations and also shares her own experiences and opinions. At the end of every chapter, there is a set of questions that the reader is asked to answer about their life. This turns The Good Fight into a workbook that helps the reader work through their life struggles.

The one thing I liked most about the book was the author’s inclusion of her life experiences. Before Shareta started sharing her experiences, The Good Fight felt a bit boring to me, mostly because I could not relate to the words of the author. But as soon as she shared her first opinion, my face lit up, as I could finally feel a connection to what I was reading. It felt as though she understood what I was going through.

My favorite part was when she shared her thoughts on young people, socializing, and friendships. She helped me to understand exactly what I was going through and why. To give some perspective, I quit social media some time ago because I felt it was not good for my mental health, and Shareta confirmed that my fears were not at all unsubstantiated. She writes,

“Between the ages of 15 to 24, suicide ranked as the 2nd most leading cause of death . . . Research was done on some underlying probable causes, which were opioid use and social media.”

This brings me to my next point. I believe the book was well-researched, as the author not only shared her opinions but also backed up everything she wrote with statistics from trusted sources. This meant I could always check the veracity of her statements, and that increased my trust in her words. Furthermore, I enjoyed the inclusion of several Bible quotations at the end of every chapter. The words were mostly inspirational, and they affected me deeply.

Considering the aforementioned points, I rate The Good Fight 4 out of 4 stars. There was nothing to dislike about the book, and I believe it was professionally edited, as I found just a few errors in it. I would recommend it to Christians who are going through tough times. Non-religious people may not like the book, as it is written from the Christian perspective.

The book seems great and review is a good one. The only thing I didn't like about the book is it includes teachings from the Bible. I find a lot of difficulty in reading these books cuz I don't know anything about the Christian religion. Anyway, the review is great.

This non-fiction book seems very inspiring and motivational. I'm not religious, so I don't know if I'm going to read it. However, I love it when we are able to see that the author researched a lot about the book's topic, it really shows how they are dedicated. Thanks for the informative review. Great job!
