Jolene3 Stars Out Of 5Warfare by Tony EvansDecember 28, 2018JoleneQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3In Warfare: Winning the Spiritual Battle, Dr. Tony Evans tackles the complicated topic of spiritual warfare. Dr. Evans spends substantial time fleshing out the history of spiritual warfare, who is involved in the war, and how to fight the war. He writes so that someone with little or no previous knowledge of spiritual warfare can get a comprehensive view of the subject matter.
In the pages of Warfare, I also found good, practical advice on matters such as: recognizing one's responsibility and power to direct one's thoughts/doubts, reverence for the Lord God, realizing that people/situations are not the real enemy and who the actual enemy is, the necessity of prayer, the danger of elevating things or people above God, and more.
There was one major idea in Warfare that Dr. Evans did not completely convince me about: that all spiritual warfare happens because Satan wants to steal God's glory and God is all about keeping His glory. Dr. Evans explains why he believes this, but I was not convinced. The way it was presented made God seem narcissistic. My personal belief is that spiritual warfare happens because God loves humans and wants a relationship with them while the enemy hates humans and works to prevent that relationship with God. Perhaps I am in the wrong, but I just wasn't convinced in this matter.
It is important to note that Warfare is written from a conservative, evangelical worldview. Those who disagree with said worldview will likely disagree with several things including Dr. Evans' view of the necessity of submission in marriage.
Personally, I would have liked to have seen Chapter 9 go into further detail about the weapons we can use in this war commonly known as the Armor of God in Ephesians 6. (Dr. Evans' daughter, Priscilla Shirer, has a fabulous in-depth study on this particular topic if you want to explore more with practical application)
Lastly, I noted that the copyright page shows that Warfare is a condensed version of Tony Evans' book, The Battle is the Lord's, and that part of chapter 1 is excerpted from his book, Kingdom Man. So, just a heads-up that if you have read The Battle is the Lord's, the material might be very similar.

Kim5 Stars Out Of 5Most informative bookDecember 16, 2018KimQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have personally studied the topic of Heaven, Hell, and angels intensely, along with what I was taught in church, and I learned more in the first chapter than all those months and years combined. Dr. Evans is gifted and uses much analogies to make his point easier to grasp. I've given many of these away as gifts.
kledford5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent BookDecember 10, 2018kledfordQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I REALLY enjoyed this book. Tony Evans is personally one of my favorite pastors to learn from because he is very down-to-earth and speaks simply. He does not sugar-coat the reality of biblical teachings. His method for teaching scripture is very clear and he rightly divides the Word. (2 Tim 2:15) When I saw that I had the chance to review this book, I jumped on it!
This book was an easy read. It's definitely something you could pick up, but be aware - you might not be able to put it down. In this book, Dr. Evans thoroughly explains the importance of understanding the importance of understanding what it means to be a citizen of the Heavenly Kingdom, and how that connects with how we liveday-to-day life.
This is something that every Christian will encounter in their faith journey. In this book, Dr. Evans really explains in depth how to identify spiritual warfare and how to claim victory over these battles.I think this book is a must-read for every believer!
Bible Believing ChristianYouTube ChannelAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent book! A must have for every Christian's library.December 4, 2018Bible Believing ChristianYouTube ChannelAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is an amazing book which really helps you to better understand the spiritual battle that Christians face and how the enemy will do all he can to keep us from doing the will of God. It goes over how these battles all began and gives scripture references to help you to better understand the origins and expansion of the battle.
It goes over the battlefront and how the enemy will attack us on an individual battlefront as well as the family, church and society fronts as well. The book also gives us insight into Satan's character and strategy as well as the nature and activity of demons.
It will help to teach you how to know and enlist your spiritual allies and the weapons we can use to defeat them which include the full armor of God (Ephesians 6) all while teaching us to use the source of our authority to win the battle all while giving us scripture references throughout every chapter.
Tony Evans does a great job on this book and I am about to read it for the 2nd time but this time with a pen and highlighter so I can make notes.
I have a video review of this book on my you tube Bible review channel Bible Believing Christian. I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
rkfall5 Stars Out Of 5WarfareNovember 29, 2018rkfallPastor Tony Evans does it again with Warfare. The thing I love about this book is that it is Scriptural. It helped me to focus on the Spiritual Warfare that I face every day. It opens my eyes to the war going on around me each and every moment. How to identify it and the armor pieces to have in place for the battle. It talks about the REAL battle behind all the outward appearances. It goes along with all the other books I've been reading about the Armor in the past 2 years and it's a great addition to my library on this topic. I highly recommend this book.
