This book answers some of the most troubling questions I've had during the 40+ years I've been a Christian. Why do I know so many Christians who are afflicted with terrible mental illnesses, addictions, physical problems, etc., that they just can't seem to get free from? Why do I still suffer from problems with depression, and how should I pray for and minister to the hurting people in my life? This book is the answer to all those questions. I am reading it and feeling a huge burden lift from my heart. Yes, there IS a reason for these things, and there IS something we can do about it, not only in breaking free from our own chains, but in interceding for others so they can be freed, too.
I have experienced demons. Anyone who says they don't exist has bought into the lies of the Father of Lies. You're no danger to an enemy you don't believe in, are you?
I have seen family and friends tormented by demons. No, I don't see demons under every rock (and neither does Neil Anderson), and I know sometimes there is another explanation for someone's torment. But what if there isn't? What if there is no solution? Sometimes the only thing that makes sense is believing that this world really IS under the control of Satan, and some of the people I love are his prisoners.
The best thing about this book is that it teaches who we are in Jesus Christ, and that we are warriors in His army and we have all the tools we need to go out and possess the land in His name.
The greatest gifts this book has given me are faith and hope.
Note to those who think the book is saying Christians can be possessed: I don't think the book says that at all. I think it is saying demons can have strongholds in us. This is not the same as possession.
People who fear or hate truth, do not acknowledge the existence of the devil and his armies, or want to hang onto New Age, secular philosophies, will HATE this book. But it's truth that will make us free.
