A work on Spiritual warfare
November 4, 2014
This book is about the war between the Christian and the force(s) of evil in this world the flesh and the devil. The author makes it very clear how to distinguish between these forces, and when and how to deal with them. He makes reference to the Bible for its strength in this subject and a lot of Common sense and tips how to defend the heart and mind especially fron evil influence s. I recommend this book it is easy to read and its message is one every Christian should be abreast of. I recommend this book to people of all stages in their spiritual developmebt. This book is direct and very practical. I'm really glad I've read it and use what I've learned from it every day. Good to reread it too. You won't be sorry you read this book and for the price it's a given you'll get your money's worth.
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.
