Format: Hardcover
The Handbook For Spiritual Warfare by Dr. Ed Murphy addresses an area critically missing from the teaching of most mainline theological denominations. Over the centuries since our Lord completed His redeeming work here on earth, the Church seems to have lost sight of the almost invisible raging spiritual battles that our Lord clearly dealt with during His brief physical time on earth. The resulting carnage of evil influence is all around us in drugs, weapons, and crushed lives. The apostle Paul found it necessary to spend much time tutoring and strengthening his fledgling churches on exactly what was happening and how our enemy literally attacks God's work. Likewise, Dr. Murphy methodically traces the teachings on spiritual warfare from Genesis to Revelation. His work is dramatically illustrated with his global experiences of power encounters with enemy spiritual forces. The church today definitely needs to re-awake to the battle around us and become aware of the enemy's great power and tactics. This book brings good balance to the topic. Unlike some who consider deliverance a single event, Dr. Murphy shows the need for a more encompassing approach. His 45-10-45 time rule explains that the actually deliverance comprises only 10% of the time needed to successfully deliver the oppressed from the bondage of Satan's minions. He encourages that 45% of the time is needed for pre-deliverance (preparation of the counselee to understand what is happening in their lives and the need to seek deliverance) and 45% in post deliverance counseling to assure that they can continue to succeed in being free and avoid a return to worse demonization (Matthew 12:43-45).Read more ›

Format: Paperback
If you're looking for some solid teaching/understanding about the issues of demons, demonic oppression and possession, and deliverance then this tome is one of the best buys you could make. I've had this book in my library for years (bought it when it first came out and have the hardcover edition) and have read it front to back several times over.
Dr. Murphy has put together a strong, informative, and biblical presentation. As noted in an eariler review, this is not a light read. There's no way a topic such as this could be a light read! The book tackles such topics as 'oppression vs. possession,' ritual abuse, multiple personality disorders, and various other difficult and confusing issues. He clearly details what demonic influence is like and how it acts and then takes the reader into the Word to show them the tools of their spiritual warfare and how to use them effectively.
As a theology student who has completed a course on spiritual warfare for my studies, this book was invaluable in study and essay-writing. As a believer who wants to be informed and rightly wielding the Sword of Truth, this book is a necessary and valued part of my library.
'Tis good to see the book in paperback edition now, making it more affordable for a wider reading audience.
Spiritual warfare, by definition, can be a scary issue for many, but with Dr. Murphy's concise and clear teachings and explanations the veil of confusion is lifted and 'solid ground' is found by the reader. Can't recommend this title highly enough.

This book makes a great followup to Bob Larson's book "In The Name of Satan"! Dr. Murphy has written a comprehensive and inclusive book on spiritual warfare. He backs himself well with Bible scripture. One warning: this is not casual reading as the book is somewhat encyclopedic. However, it has proven excellent in deepening my understanding of spiritual warfare, and Satan's tactics and strategies! Highly recommended reading.

Format: Paperback
Spiritual War that is! Great book in helping you to understand the enemy's tactics and increases your wisdom in why spirtual warfare is so very important. Gives you a much deeper insight into the spirtual realm of things and has been a great tool in encouragement and gives you a deeper desire to pray more specifically in these areas over others and in your own life.
Jesus the Lamb (the gentle sacrificial Savior) and the Lion (the mighty warrior) calls us out of our complacency to be soliders of the cross. Girded with the full armor of God, we are to overcome the Evil one, to challenge the principalities and powers who hold people in bondage with the authority we have in Christ through declaration and intercession.
Read this book with lots of prayer and you will be blessed with how much God will open up your spiritual eyes and reveal many things to you concerning spiritual warfare!

Format: Hardcover
I've had this hardcover edition since it first came out. I've read through it several times, and refer to it often. Even cite from it to my church family and friends. It is very much a time-consuming read, but worth every second. It is a thick book. And this is even smaller than what the original manuscript was before his proof-reader or editor helped parre it down to what it is now. So much information, so little time. I'd love to have the original manuscript. If you've wondered about spiritual warfare and things related, and want to understand more, this would be an excellent well from which to drink. It is a wealth of information and truth that every christian can and will benefit from in so many ways.
