How to Conquer Evil Spirits and Live Victoriously – as the cover states.
From the Back Cover: Easy to follow and immediately practical, this handbook will help you become an instrument of God’s redemptive grace, continuing Christ’s ministry of setting satan’s captives – and yourself – free.
As I said in my review, this is an interesting book. I’m not sure that it doesn’t go deep enough to provide more information for those who think that they may have encountered demonic spirits. I will let the reader decide for themself.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“Do you have problems in life that won’t go away? Struggles you can’t seem to overcome? It isn’t surprising. Like it or not, you are immersed in an invisible war. The problem is, most of us don’t know how significantly, or directly, our lives are influenced by unseen battles and beings.
Jesus Himself is our model. He taught us how to fight. Here, respected teacher and bestselling author Larry Richards draws not only from the words of Jesus, but also from His actions in dealing with evil spirits, to offer a biblical, balanced approach to spiritual warfare.”
Spiritual Warfare Jesus’ Way; How to Conquer Evil Spirits and Live Victoriously by Larry Richards is an interesting book. On one hand it is a practical manual, of sorts, of not just the why’s, but the how-to’s of spiritual warfare… but on the other hand, it is just that. A manual. In the book, the author does walk the reader through the how-to’s of recognizing the enemy’s attacks today, preparing to face the enemy, experiencing big and little everyday victories and how to help others who are under attack, in addition to a great deal more. All of this is done in light of Jesus’ Ministry and the commissioning of the Disciples.
My only concern with the information provided lies in the first line of the Preface to this book – “Spiritual Warfare is complex”. I, for one, would have loved to have had another couple hundred pages to really dive in deep into what the Christian needs when wanting to, or needing to, confront and evil and it’s dark forces.
