* According to Kraft, 80% of the Synoptic Gospels deal directly with the war against Satan---yet many believers gloss over this major theme. Based on years of firsthand experience and study, his guide exposes the myths surrounding spiritual warfare; reveals what demons are and what they do; presents the rules for engaging the enemy; and more. 288 pages, softcover from Chosen.
Are you aware of the spiritual battle being waged around you today?
The truth is that although spiritual warfare is a major theme in the Bible, many of us gloss over it--or ignore it completely. But 80 percent of the synoptic gospels addresses the battle with evil spirits, and Jesus and His disciples set a clear example for believers. We cannot afford to practice a powerless Christianity in a fallen world.
In this essential, accessible resource, former evangelical seminary professor and missionary Charles Kraft helps you find your footing in the spiritual battle. Based on a solid biblical foundation and on decades of ministry experience, this book will help you:
· Differentiate between myths and truths about spiritual warfare
· Recognize the everyday battles taking place around you
· Learn what demons really are and what they actually do
· Understand the rules for engaging the enemy
· Achieve victory in daily battles with the help of the Holy Spirit
Don't let fear keep you from engaging the spiritual forces at work around you. Some problems can't be overcome in any other way.
