A Note on the Ninth Edition
The publishing house responsible for the Ninth Edition of "War on the Saints" is named in memory of a man of God, an evangelist and planter of churches in Maryland, Thomas Ernest Lowe. This able and zealous minister, seeing the great abundance of Gospel opportunity for North Americans and realizing the scarcity of that same opportunity for millions in South America, set out in the 1930's for Colombia, to survey the spiritual landscape, and was joined there by his wife, Hannah. They worked together until Mr. Lowe, still a relatively young and most vigorous man, died in the capital city of Bogotá in 1941.
It is chiefly to his widow, Hannah Lowe, that readers of this unabridged volume owe their possession of it. Knowing the great value to believers of this exceptional work, she carefully searched for a copy of the whole text over an extended period in the 1960's and, at length, found two copies, one in nearly perfect condition. The republication of the whole volume in its present form, after having been out of print for years, was strenuously opposed, but in 1973, with the help of likeminded believers, Mrs. Lowe had the joy of seeing the book once again made available exactly as its authors intended. It has been available continuously since that time.
Note: Mrs. Lowe, vibrant in service to her Lord until her final days, died at Jerusalem in June 1983, having spent a year in the beloved City.

WAR ON THE SAINTS
This indispensable work fills a notable gap in Christian literature.
There are excellent Christian books on just about every subject concerning the believer and the church: books on prayer, missions, church work, evangelism, prophecy, and many more. But if anyone needed a book on how to recognize, identify and effectively oppose the work of demons, he would discover a lack of titles on the subject.
The earnest Christian of today, aware of a constant increase of demon activity in every aspect of life, wonders about this serious omission. In the time in which we live, no Christian can afford to close his eyes and pretend there is no reason for concern or that the church and he as a believer need not be involved in the conflict.
War on the Saints is a classic treatise on the work of demons. It explains carefully how the enemy works and how to defeat him. It is relatively easy for Christians to deal with sin, but when they face satan and his countless wiles, they will be at a loss to know what to do, at least in many cases. St. Paul serenely affirmed in his day, "We are not ignorant of the devil's devices," and the life and ministry of the early church proved it. This lucid book scatters ignorance of satan's devices!
The Church of Jesus Christ today is in dire need of men and women who will use the gifts of the Spirit and exercise spiritual authority over demons. Two experienced Christians, both with keen discernment of spirits, wrote the most helpful book on the subject, War on the Saints. Jessie Penn-Lewis had a wide public ministry with an emphasis on overcoming. Evan Roberts, the chief evangelist of the Welsh revival, joined Mrs. Penn-Lewis in writing this penetrating study.
