This book is a must have if you want to learn about prayer and how spiritual warfare works. I often found myself praying and not really knowing all the rules. Just praying the scriptures and trying to be humble (or what I thought was humble). This book changed my perspective on prayer and helped me to be a prayer warrior, not just a good christian who happened to pray.
This book is exactly what I needed for my upcoming ministry (Calleth those things that be not as if they were). God called me into ministry and I'm enrolled in a seminary (theology). I believe there needs to be more focus on preparing Christians and especially new saints to deal with the enemy. Cindy has broken it down to the level everybody can benefit from. She brings out the power of the Holy Ghost to help deal with every aspect of influence in our lives. I highly recommend it to every Christian, new and veteran.
I bought this along with 10 other books on prayer, spiritual warfare and parenting, to help me become more effective in praying for and writing to my 13 sponsored children. I wanted to learn new and effective strategies for overcoming the powers of darkness that affect the communities in which my children live.
However, when I read this book, I could find no basis in Scripture for much of what is said. Too much of what is written in this book seemed to have come from 'personal revelation' to the author, which is completely baseless. Another concern I have about this book is that it assumes teachings from the prosperity 'Word of Faith' movement, and puts the Christian believer rather than God at the centre of the universe.
In short, if you're looking for a Biblical approach to spiritual warfare, I would suggest that you look somewhere else.
