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.
