Bubeck reminds us that Satan is not invincible, just very powerful. But God's love in Christ is eminently more powerful. Thus, Bubeck focuses on our union with Christ, and how that union impacts spiritual warfare. And he looks in depth at the person and ministry of the Holy Spirit, showing how pivotally important the Spirit is for Satan's defeat. Bubeck also looks at the armor of God as described in Ephesians 6, detailing the use and appropriation of each piece of armor. The most important weapon, however, is prayer, and Bubeck reminds us of the preeminence, passion, protection, perseverance, panorama and projection of prayer.
Above all, Bubeck wanted to remind the believer of the confidence we can have in Christ. He calls us to an invincible faith, and to stand firm against the devil in everything we do. Our culture abounds in sin and in various forms of spiritual activity (mostly demonic), so it is vital that the Christian stand firmly and confidently with God to bring about change.
Bubeck masterfully maintains the balance between the extreme possibilities in spiritual warfare, one which ignores Satan completely, and one which sees his activity in everything. The middle ground, for Bubeck, consists of recognizing that Satan is real and has real power, but can and will be defeated by the power of God through the Holy Spirit. Overcoming the Adversary is an insightful, practical look at the very real battle we are in, and it offers great hope, because it reminds us why we can be confident in our God. If you enjoyed Bubeck's The Adversary, you will like Overcoming the Adversary just as much. And if you appropriate Bubeck's message you will see victory in your life.

David R. Bess4 Stars Out Of 5May 31, 2004David R. BessThis sequel to Bubeck's book "The Adversary" is much better in quality and content than the first volume. The bulk of this work focuses upon the armor of God as described in Ephesians 6, and upon what it means to wear that armor in daily life. I've read numerous treatments of the armor of God, and the explanation given here is certainly among the best. For anyone wanting practical tips and insight on spiritual warfare, this title is by all means a very good investment.
