The Overcomers: God's Vision for You to Thrive in an Age of Anxiety and Outrage

Matt Chandler

Are you ready to live fully prepared and fully equipped to handle anything life throws at you? As Christians, we can be courageous and confident, knowing that God has placed us in human history for His purposes, and He will empower us regardless of our circumstances. Drawing on the book of Revelation and historical examples, The Overcomers will put steel in the spines of believers and remind them of the fierce, conquering, commanding authority of God over all the earth.

You were made for this exact moment in human history. Things may look gloomy, and you may feel discouraged, but because of the promise and hope found in Scripture, you can be brave, confident, and victorious today!

In The Overcomers, Matt Chandler reminds readers that they don't have to be anxious or afraid of anything in the present or in the future because both have already been won. We are not victims but overcomers--and we are a key part of what God is working out in our day. God is at work in the mess, just as He has always been, and He continues to accomplish His purpose of seeking and saving the lost.

In this book, believers will:

  • Find courage and confidence from fellow believers who have gone before us.
  • Feel empowered as God reminds them of His promises fulfilled and yet to come.
  • Understand the strategies, tactics, and deceptions Satan uses to try to keep us paralyzed with anxiety and fear.
  • Learn to live a victorious Christian life marked by the power and presence of God.

The apostle John wrote his letter to a certain group of people in a particular place at a specific time. Although it was written to them, it was also written for us. The Overcomers takes a chapter-by-chapter view of Revelation rather than a line-by-line deep dive, helping readers practically understand what God wants to say to us today through this extraordinary book written thousands of years ago. Believers will be reminded that they are uniquely wired and uniquely placed in this moment in history as part of God's big plan to push back darkness and to establish light. Christ has overcome, and in Him we, too, are the overcomers!

'If you have ever been afraid of the future as a Christian or scared to take a deep dive into the book of Revelation, The Overcomers is a great place to start. Matt Chandler's voice has a microphone in my life, because I always know He will tell it like it is, and speak the truth. You will feel this throughout the book as He writes about scripture, God's promises for the end times, biblical truths, and how to live a victorious life in God.'----Sadie Robertson Huff, Author, Speaker, and Founder of Live Original
'More than ever we need guides who will lead us to stare unflinchingly at the depths of our depravity and then gently lead us to see the incomprehensible heights of God's glory and love. Matt has expertly shepherded people, myself included, over this terrain for decades. I am so glad he has put those words down on these pages. His passion for Scripture and his compassion for people echoes loudly as he guides the reader through the book of Revelation. This book is saturated with glorious hope, and will leave readers awake, alive, and encouraged to believe they are called by King Jesus to be Overcomers.'----Ben Stuart, Pastor of Passion City Church DC, Author of Single, Dating, Engaged, Married and Rest & War
