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.

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.
A pastor for more than 40 years, Dr. Bubeck is author of The Adversary, Overcoming the Adversary, The Rise of Fallen Angels, and Raising Lambs Among Wolves, now updated and re-published as The Adversary at Home.
He lives in Sun City, Arizona.
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.

Ruth StilesCentral NYAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Engaging text on a greatly forgotten/ignored topicFebruary 20, 2014Ruth StilesCentral NYAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4The 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.

David R. Bess3 Stars Out Of 5April 30, 2004David R. BessThis 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.
