Customer Reviews for Covenant Media Resources Spiritual Warfare

Covenant Media Resources Spiritual Warfare

The Bible is explicit: We live in a world of distinct opponents; our very lives are a battle. Yet too many Christians lose more battles than they win and endure their walk with God rather than enjoy it because they don't recognize the enemy when they see it. More importantly, they have no idea how to respond.While society tells us we can react simply, the truth is that a wish, a hope, and a prayer are not the best responses to attacks from those who stand between us and the Father. Christians must be strategic in their reactions to these clearly defined enemies, learning how to fight biblically and effectively rather than just sincerely.In Spiritual Warfare, Dr. Karl Payne - pastor of Leadership Development and Discipleship at Antioch Bible Church and Chaplain for the NFL's Seattle Seahawks - has written a guidebook for defense that is simple, biblical, and transferable. Through his teaching on how to recognize and resolve attacks from the world, we learn that we are more than conquerors in Christ.

Excellent book on a difficult topic. I have read numerous books on the subject and this one is very readable, covers the topic well, relying on scriptures rather than on preconceived theological positions. I bought several to give to friends and family.

I was a bit disappointed in this book. I thought there would be more of the doctrine of Spiritual Warfare, not so much of His experiences. It is interesting of how he and other Believers are / were able to help those overcome by the powers of darkness... by applying Biblical doctrine..
It is that the book is MUCH different than what I expected. I would recommend it to someone who is looking more to doctrinal examples than to Biblical doctrine.

For years when it came to the topic of Spiritual Warfare I preferred to squeeze my eyes (and mind) tightly shut and just ignore the idea of trying to sift through what was traditional teaching, false doctrine, and sound biblical truth for fear that I would never really "get it" or be able to apply it anyway - I mean, isn't that just for those who went to Seminary to deal with? I was emotionally and mentally turned off to the idea of (what I classified as) the Charismatic movement due to negative church experiences in my past and everything associated with that denomination (which in my experience was heavy on the Holy Spirit, Spiritual Warfare in every sniffle, trial, and financial struggle and fragmented Scripture and light on sound doctrine and a hermeneutical or exegesis study of the Word.) THEN came some personal spiritual crisis and the desire to find a trustworthy source. Not only does Dr. Payne teach and train, he uses "real world" examples to explain the Biblical truth contained in his book in tangible, understandable applications! By the end of the book, one is empowered by Biblical truth to understand where our power comes from, how it is manifested, and one is given applicable tools to use in any situation of spiritual warfare!! I also just listened to a radio broadcast where in he was featured on the radio on a program (which I can't mention specifically due to the writing guidelines of promoting another website that Christianbook has) with a broadcast date of December 5th, 2011. I guess you could use a search engine to find it :) If you'd like to check him out for yourself before buying his book, it is a MUST listen and a great refresher for those who have read it already!

This is the best Christian book I have ever read. For a long time I have sought the practical advice given in this book. Praise God for giving us this book to put in practical terms the wisdom of the bible.
