The night has various meanings in the Bible, and some are negative spiritual meanings. The darkness, which we are before becoming Christians, engulfs many sins, making them invisible until the light uncovers them. But the night has other, positive connotations as well, and reclaiming the positive elements from the negative is the focus of Take Back the Night. written by Candi Macalpine, a trainer in the New Apostolic movement, this book examines the subject of night and spiritual darkness.

"But I believe there are some roots we need to eradicate, and they are hidden in the night," she adds, as she equips Christians to take an aggressive stance in spiritual warfare in her release, Take Back the Night.In Take Back the Night, MacAlpine gives readers insight into the mechanics of spiritual warfare and a blueprint for successful intercessory prayer-particularly in the midnight hour as she asserts when warfare is the most intense.She writes, "God created the night according to Genesis 1…for far to long we [Christians] have relegated the night to the demonic realm and in all reality, a level of fear has kept the church of Jesus Christ from taking back this territory."Accompanied with scriptural passages and numerous testimonies, Take Back the Night includes a list of names of Jesus in Scripture.Also covered in Take Back the Night is the following:Can a nonbeliever experience spiritually significant dreams?Dream interpretationPrayer warfare strategiesTake Back the Night is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in dreams, visions, and intercessory prayer and will help readers understand the significance to their Christian walk.
