Good Relevance but little creativity.
on June 26, 2013
I must admit I'm probably gonna be in the minority on this review. I love reading books about spiritual warfare, they always give me a sense of awareness- this awareness is the number 1 thing Christians need to overcome the Satan and his army. It is the "ignorance" of the saints that keep us in bondage. But anyway, Trimm's book has an abundance of info that is need for spiritual warfare but in my opinion, it lacks creativity. You see, using another book written for war tactics and applying it to spiritual warfare is creative, but its not original. She based her entire book on the tactics of Sun Tzu's wisdom, this is not originality. So she took theories of a chinese warrior (whom I'm sure was not a christian, so these beliefs were centered around idol-worship) an applied them as christian tactics? I stopped reading it after like the first three chapters. My thing is, if your studying biblical principles, theories from other place aren't needed. Im not a minister or evangelist or anything like that, but I am a true believer of christ. Sun Tzu has no meaning to me, thus i dont understand why she was trying to show the symbolism between ancient chinese war tactics and christian spiritual tactics.. Battlefield of the mind by Joyce Meyers is a better choice.
