Engaging text on a greatly forgotten/ignored topic
February 20, 2014
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.
