David Phiri described the book as an inspiration to Christians on how to leverage God’s power to deal with challenges.

Some of the topics highlighted in the book are; the genesis of challenges, Jesus Christ a must, The Truth about challenges, Factors behind common challenges, the victory is yours and prayers against stubborn challenges.
