Matthew5 Stars Out Of 5September 19, 2005MatthewDr. Lawless does not buy into belief that if you teach others a technique to do battle they will win. He believes that Spiritual Warefare requires a close walk with God. This is a must read from a man with a pastor's heart.
David R. Bess5 Stars Out Of 5April 10, 2004David R. BessFar too many books on the market today either deny or sensationalize spiritual warfare. Lawless here offers sensible, scriptural insight on the subject. His thoughts are grounded in the Bible yet illuminated by a heart and mind that are yielded to the Holy Spirit. His words are solid academically, yet very readable and understandable.I've read many titles that are long on experience, short on theology and vice-versa. Lawless in this work strikes a fine balance. I recommend this title highly to all believers wanting to get a better understanding of the basics of spiritual warfare for the individual and for the local church.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am a professor of evangelism and church growth at Southern Seminary. Prior to serving on the faculty, I pastored Baptist churches in Ohio for fourteen years.
What was your motivation behind this project? I became interested in spiritual warfare when I saw churches not making much difference--and wondering why that happened. More specifically, I was concerned about why so many Christians fail to live a victorious Christian life. I have attempted to produce a resource that helps individuals and churches overcome the enemy.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I want readers to develop a passion for leading churches that honor God first and threaten the enemy second.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Some of my favorite authors are John Piper, Thom Rainer, and Tom Schreiner. An older author, William Gurnall, is also a favorite.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I want people to approach spiritual warfare from a biblical perspective--that is, to recognize that the battle is real, but we are already victors in Christ.
