"Confronting Jezebel" is a bold and clearly written book written about spiritually warfare and specifically dealing with the principality Jezebel (the spirit of control). Sampson's clear and truthful way of writing is eye-opening to the teachable reader. He backs up his teaches with scripture and is bold but not preachy, his writing is full of his own real-life experiences. His way of writing is clear and easy for a new believer to understand while still challenging and teaching more spiritual mature believers.
After the teaching of each chapter, Sampson writes out three to four questions to help the reader review, process, and apply what he/she has just read and learned. After the thought-provoking questions, Sampson than follows with a short but heartfelt prayer that will enable the reader to immediately act upon the insights of the lesson in each chapter.
I was challenged and uplifted by reading this short, but insightful book. The chapters are short but challenging and it is an easy read for people who lead busy lives and need to read short bits at a time. In fact, I recommend you read a chapter and than process it for a day or two before moving on to the next one. But at the same time, it draws the reader in and is difficult to put down when the lessons are convecting and true to the readers life.
I was excited to start reading this book by Steve Sampson, but I found myself bored from the start. In fact, it seems that this book is more of a means for Mr. Sampson to complain and gossip about situations he has "observed" (although a lot of them were third-party accounts) without actually giving insight on the best way to deal with these situations. I also found his plugging of his next book to be a little obnoxious as I was in the midst of this one. The book left me feeling very negative towards church people and unsettled on how to deal with the Jezebel spirit. It would have been better to see accounts from Scripture and find out how these situations were handled in the Bible.
