Worth Reading, but not as the Top Book on the Subject,
This review is from: Spirit Wars: Winning the Invisible Battle Against Sin and the Enemy (Paperback)
I was intrigued to read Spirit Wars. Although I know it's easy to find spiritual warfare even in burned toast, I am a prayer warrior who can testify I have gone up against things that were not of God, and I called on Christ's authority and prayed against forces I know were the real deal in spiritual warfare.
Spirit Wars is a book where I learned a little, underlined a bit, and agreed with some of the principles and experiences he shares. However, the author seems conflicted. He admits a severe burn out and what it took to get out of that pit. He confesses to taking medication and seems apologetic to even admit it. He talks about Joshua and Nehemiah, but a lot of the book is his own story, which I don't feel he's very comfortable in talking about--almost as if there is more for him to deal with, and he's not there yet.
There are some doctrinal issues that I can't get on board with, and like I said, I won't throw the baby out with the bathwater, but I can't say I agreed with every single thing in the book. I did not.
My opinion is he needed to write either a personal experience kind of book, or a how-to using Joshua and Nehemiah as his guide. Using both didn't work for me, and it is a shame, because I have enjoyed his other books.
If you're looking for a comprehensive look at spiritual warfare, I recommend Chuck Pierce's Time to Defeat the Devil. That's a book that is dog eared and underlined so much the ink bleeds through the pages. Spirit Wars? Only a few underlines, no dog-eared pages.
Worth reading, but not as the top book on the subject.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
