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.
I found the ideas and concepts described to be in accordance to the Bible text and in the proper context of the Scriptures. The author was careful to show the original meaning of things as to show that nothing was distorted from its true meaning. Also i found Dr. Murphy's teaching to be consistent with reality because i was able to verify many of it with my personal ministry experience in the field and such experience must always be validated by the Bible before being considered valid.
It was a challenge to read it all because it has so many pages, but it's worth the effort. However don't expect to learn everything you need to know from just this book but i found it to be the best one about the topic. Always rely on the Holly Spirit for everything and The Bible.
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!
