“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”
Ephesians 5:11 (Bible) "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them."
John 8:31-32 (Bible) (Jesus Christ speaking) "Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

All glory to God!
Thank you to the seller (SusiesBooks). The book got here in great condition at a great time (delivery speed)! God bless you, SusiesBooks!
I did not give the book 5 stars for 2 main reasons. First, I thought that the authors spent too much time interjecting the concept of demonic possession or demonic influence into the discussion. After a while, this became a distraction to me while reading the book, and frankly, I think the whole concept was significantly overemphasized. Entering the concept of demonic influences into a discussion with a non Christian is probably the best way to alienate that person from the joy of Christianity. Secondly, the one thing I was hoping to see that I didn't see was an in depth discussion of the latest New Age craze - nature based spirituality. Whether it takes the form of wicca, native american spirituality, or other forms of paganism, there is not a comprehensive discussion of this area. It is touched upon in a few places in the book, but because it's such a hot topic right now, I would have greatly enjoyed a separate section that was devoted specifically to this arm of New Age thought and having it thoroughly examined as its own topic.
With the exception of the 2 concerns addressed above, Ankerberg and Weldon have produced a formidable response to New Age thought. It is my hope that as the New Age movement continues to change, the authors will continue to publish revised versions of this book in order to keep current.
