Aug 24, Karen Wong rated it it was amazing. Are you struggling to submit to leaders at home, work, church or government? This book will help you understand through scriptures why and how we should submit to authority as God commands.
When reading or listening to John Bevere one cannot go away unchallenged. The central theme of this book revolves around the truth that God is our only authority and as such He has placed authority on earth which we are commanded to submit to if we are to be under His covering of protection and provision.
This book has challenged me in many ways. First it has opened up my eyes to see that even a hint of insubordination and disobedience is still regarded as sin. We need to continue to seek God and have first hand revelation from the Holy Spirit about His word so that we can obey Him with our heart and not out of prescribed truth.

We have to submit to Him wholeheartedly and also with those who have higher authority over us whether they may be our own parents, employers, church leaders, government leaders etc.
Submission must always come first. Disobedience mean rebellion and we don’t want to rebel and make God our enemy. There undrecover will see that God is all we need in life and He has the best things that He will give to us at the right time.
Choose the way of the overcomer, which is life! Godbless and Glory to our Lord Jesus Christ forever and ever. May 28, Jonathan Brenneman rated it it was ok.
Under Cover is a regurgitation of toxic “Shepherding Movement” doctrines and misapplications of scriptures about authority and submission.
Under Cover: The Promise of Protection Under His Authority
Scriptures that are about submitting to abusive governments are wrongly applied to teach people to submit to abusive church leaders. Other scriptures are misused in order to lead to some disturbing conclusions.
This is the stuff that cults are made of.
We must learn from history! The book is well-written. However, the implications are scary. My biggest concer Under Cover is a regurgitation of toxic “Shepherding Movement” doctrines and misapplications of scriptures about authority and submission. My biggest concern is that johm the headship of Jesus Christ over the joun. Feb 13, Kacicalvaresi rated it it was ok. I’m kind of shocked by all the five star ratings. John should leave the writing to Lisa.
The book contained some amazing points, but the bulk of what I took away came from undercver Biblical research I did on my own. After reading the Biblical references in the book I kept going to my Bible and finding that scriptures were used to back up his opinions as opposed to his writing backing up scripture.
Feb 24, Misty Broqi rated it it was amazing. This was definitly a God send. It was about how you should honor and obey authority and the consequences if you don’t.
He provides plenty of examples of those in the bible who did and didn’t. This really spoke to me Uohn think God is trying to reveal how much of a rebellious attitude I have had that has begun since I was 3 or 4 and undercober because of it I have not grown as spiritually as I would like. I’m going to try to be more submissive to Salvador and to those who are over me including my director This was definitly a God send.
I’m going to try to be more submissive to Salvador and to those who are over me including my director and so on. It seems like I’ve always had a rebellious heart to those who are over me it’s really sad. Aug 25, Bernadette rated it it was amazing. This book is very remarkable on its way of pushing people to hear the voice of God through every word. I would say that every word in this book counts. I’m only on page 94 but it feels like I’m on the verge of revealing the plot.
BUT I have to remember that this is not a story but is a compilation of the author’s testimonies.
This is definitely food for my soul. View all 3 comments. Sep 13, Chesney Infalt rated it it was amazing. John Bervere teaches on the touchy subject of authority and opens eyes to the blessings you get when you submit. Jan 01, Lindsey rated it it was amazing. It changed the way I viewed so many things.
This book is packed with scripture and God has really given John Bevere wisdom. Jan 02, Shiloh rated it it was amazing Recommended to Shiloh by: Brian and Lisa Skaggs. View all 5 comments. Mar 12, Tanya rated it it was amazing Shelves: Why is every book by John Bevere so life changing? That sounded interesting and it was John Bevere, so that was enough for me to read it.
But I really believe it was God leading me to read the book because it spoke to me so much! God has dealt with me over the years about submission to authority as I tend to naturally buck it not so much anymore but I used to be really bad about it. This book is so eye-opening and especially the way he ties it into faith at the end of the book. Sep 04, Joyce rated it did not like it Shelves: This is just another book used by abusive churches to brainwash people into believing the spiritual covering doctrine.
So sad to find out that this author has been duped by this doctrine. We are to submit one to another, not the very one-sided submission that is promoted in these books and thus in these churches.
Jesus is the Head, not your pastor. We are to continually test the spirits and that includes so-called leaders.

No one is infallible. Sep 17, Evan Roberts rated it really liked it Shelves: Deals with the issue of submission of heart. For those in submission submit fully from the heart. For those in leadership do not be overburdensome.
See yourself in the shoes of the other.
