Are You Ready for Battle?
As a Peace Corps volunteer in rural Nigeria, a much-younger Gordon Dalbey scoffed at an illiterate laborer's account of dark spirits that had invaded his house. The man looked the highly educated American squarely in the eye. "There are no small snakes," he declared.
Even as the smallest poisonous snake can easily kill the largest and strongest man, to discount dark spiritual forces is not only arrogant, but dangerous.
No Small Snakes relates Dalbey's upending journey from scoffer to spiritual warrior, from arrogance to bold humility. Both spiritual memoir and soldier's manual, this book will challenge you to face the spiritual battle at hand today and prepare you to win it in your heart and in the world.
Gordon Dalbey is a popular speaker at conferences and retreats around the world. He has appeared on numerous radio and television programs, including: Focus on the Family, The 700 Club, and The Minirth-Meier Clinic. The author of Healing the Masculine Soul, his articles have appeared in New Man, Reader's Digest, Leadership, Focus on the Family, Catholic Digest, Christian Herald and The Los Angeles Times. He is a graduate of Duke University and holds an M.A. in journalism from Stanford University and an M.Div. from Harvard University. A former Peace Corps Volunteer (Nigeria), news reporter, high school teacher, and pastor, he lives in Santa Barbara, California, with his wife and son.

His candor and perspective was very refreshing. Well educated, sincere believer who is willing to be honest about the reality of spiritual warfare, and what traditional church often fails to adequately address. I first became acquainted with the way Gordon prays for those he counsels when I read a book written by Jimmy Carter's sister, whose name I believe was Ruth Stapleton. Very interesting, and my experience suggests it is valid, desparately needed and very helpful for overcoming issues, wounds and/or obstacles. I used Gordon's first name in the prior sentence because he writes as a friend, and as one who is approachable. He is a fellow sojourner. Great insights with a sober belief in God. Romans 12:3 calls us to have a sane or sober estimate of the faith given us, and Gordon writes in that fashion. He simply shares what God has given. Great read!
