Product Description

To defeat an adversary, one must first and foremost acknowledge the existence of that adversary. Once their existence is acknowledged, one can move on to understanding who the adversary is and how they act. According to Bubeck, the church has, for long time, been unable to even acknowledge the existence of its adversary, Satan, much less understand his activity and actively work toward his defeat. He wrote The Adversary to remind Christians who are enemy is, and to remind us that our enemy is very real. And though are enemy is also very powerful, the name of Jesus and the power of God are much more powerful.

Satan is our primary enemy (Satan actually means adversary), but Bubeck reminds us that we also war against our own flesh, and against the world. But no matter who or what we are fighting, be it the world, our flesh, or Satan, the weapons are the same. They are the name of Jesus and the power of God in our lives through the Holy Spirit. Thebattle will be a fierce battle, even with the proper armor and weapons, so Bubeck urges us to continually be on our guard, and he calls us to aggressive warfare through strong and fervent prayer. Through prayer, unity, and the continual activity of the Spirit in our lives, we can stop the advance Satan's kingdom; more than that, we can, in God's power, cause Satan to actually give up ground. This book is Bubeck's call for the church to return to this aggressive warfare, which it had been involved with early on, particularly in the apostolic times (and even before that with the ministry of Jesus).

Therefore, The Adversary is filled with practical advice for engaging in this battle, this war. It is also full of encouragement to Christians, calling us to be confident in God's promises and power as revealed in the Bible. If we will base our strategies and warfare on the paradigm set forth in the Bible, Bubeck feels that the church will once again prove effective in pushing Satan back. Any other method of warfare, particularly those based on emotions, will bring about defeat for Christians. If we are rooted in the word of God, and we walk in His power, nothing can stand against us, not even the gates of Hell. Bubeck uses this book to remind us that God is indeed for us; who then can be against us, or who can stand against God? So join Bubeck in the valiant struggle to defeat The Adversary, a struggle which we know we will eventually win, because God has promised it.

Publisher's Description

Spiritual warfare is real, and we are all involved whether we like it or not. The Bible plainly tells us that Satan schemes against humanity and that he wants to devour us. Daily we struggle against Satan's strategies and  desire to take over God's kingdom. This battle will not go away, and ignoring it could be disastrous.

But don't be afraid. The victory is already won by Christ! No enemy is powerful enough to overcome the risen savior. In these pages Mark Bubeck exposes the reality of the conflict and the hope believers have. He answers such questions as:

  • What is Satan's strategy in spiritual warfare?
  • Can a Christian be oppressed by demons?
  • Can demonic affliction be passed down through family lines?
  • What are the symptoms of demonic activity in a person's life?

Having sold more than 350,000 worldwide, this best-seller will help the reader triumph in the battle against demonic activity by relying on the almighty and powerful Word of God.

Editorial Reviews

 This book is being rereleased in 2013 and I received an advance copy from NetGalley for review. This book explains the basics of spiritual warfare and also serves as a practical guide. There are prayers at the end of the chapters designed to lead a person in prayer - not to be some kind of secret formula. The book is theologically conservative and cites well-known and respected leaders in the Christian faith (for example, Warren Weirsbe).  Overall, I think this is a great guide for Christians to turn to when they need a fast and practical introduction to spiritual warfare. I recommend it alongside Dr. Ed Murphy's The Handbook for Spiritual Warfare. The world isn't what it seems on the surface and almost no one realizes it. This books helps remove the veil in a Biblical way. 4/5 stars.

    This book is about the war between the Christian and the force(s) of evil in this world the flesh and the devil. The author makes it very clear how to distinguish between these forces, and when and how to deal with them. He makes reference to the Bible for its strength in this subject and a lot of Common sense and tips how to defend the heart and mind especially fron evil influence s. I recommend this book it is easy to read and its message is one every Christian should be abreast of. I recommend this book to people of all stages in their spiritual developmebt. This book is direct and very practical. I'm really glad I've read it and use what I've learned from it every day. Good to reread it too. You won't be sorry you read this book and for the price it's a given you'll get your money's worth.

    The Adversary is a powerful book that explores what many of us do not know much about. Or maybe you are like me and just "ignore" the fact that spiritual warfare exists around us. A few times in my life I have felt Satan taunting me and with the words of Jesus I have told him to get behind me or to leave me alone. The older I get and the more I read through the Scriptures I am beginning to realize the power Satan has. However, his power is nothing compared to my Savior. Mark Bubeck's book encourages us to not be afraid of Satan, but to be prepared and knowledgeable. Satan will not win because God has already won!

    Bubeck discusses topics like Satan's kingdom, aggressive prayer, weapons of warfare, and doctrine. I found this book to be exploratory and deep. The Bible was used to back up everything the author said throughout the book. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone seeking to know more about the spiritual struggles that envelope our daily lives. Although the topic is heavy and somewhat overwhelming by name, I found this book to be a relatively easy read and followed along without confusion. Bubeck's writing style engaged this ignored and even forgotten topic in a personal and yet very professional manner.

    I received this book from Moody Publishers and am not being compensated for my review.

    This title is a fairly easy read, but was rather disappointing in its treatment of spiritual warfare. While the author avoids the excesses of Pentecostalism and emotionalism that are so often associated with spiritual warfare, he places too much emphasis on the adversary and not enough emphasis on the Conqueror of the adversary. The book is also rather dated."Disciplined Warriors" by Chuck Lawless is much better, much more helpful volume on this subject. In short, Bubeck is good, Lawless is better.
