No offense, but please avoid non-Catholic spiritual warfare methods. This is because, as per a good Priest-friend of ours, we do not have the personal authority to "decree and declare" against Satan and his demons. Father tried to explain it in easy terms for my thick head and what I can repeat is that demons are very legalistic and if you start personally ordering them around you can get yourself and your family into serious danger. I myself was doing exactly that with several different books by Cindy Trimm and Beth Moore and the like. While these books are VERY informative, with Cindy Trimm's books being the best I've ever found information-wise (so detailed and practical and they really teach you what spiritual warfare is all about and what happens when we pray etc), the actual methods of how we "fight back" have subtle flaws that end up being very dangerous for us as individuals. I have no idea if my sudden onset of body-wide crippling arthritis was a result of demonic attack from me fiddling around with spiritual warfare like an untrained child or if it is just a coincidence... but it happened shortly after me spending many months "decreeing and declaring" against Satan and his demons. Either way it is enough of a warning for me to not want to bring things like this on me and my family via demonic attack because I am being an idiot.
So it is absolutely vital that we Christians, Catholic or not!, are *properly* trained in how to push back against Satan. The most reliable and safe resources are anything Catholic and Orthodox. You can imagine my delight when I stumbled across this Manual For Spiritual Warfare after spending a few months licking my wounds and asking God for the proper guides for resisting Satan so that he will flee from me. I highly recommend this little weapon to be added to any Christian's arsenal! And also three other FANTASTIC resources:
Church Militant Field Manual: Special Forces Training for the Life in Christ
Fortes in Fide: Church Militant Prayer Book
Strength and Alliance: Church Militant Field Journal
Information-wise, Cindy Trimm's books are nearly peerless:
The Rules of Engagement (but do not dive into the prayers until you know without a doubt about the flaws!)
The Art Of War For Spiritual Battle
The Prayer Warrior's Way
'Til Heaven Invades Earth
(The other books, stay away from them. Although they present a strong allure they are modern nonsense that treats God and the spiritual realm more like a gumball machine that you can control, haul on the crank and what you want will pop out of the chute kinda thing, etc. Very dangerous too.)
The first six chapters are the manual, as such, and the remainder contain the tools and weapons (prayers) with which to conduct the battles.For those who doubt the existence of the devil and of demons, this book may not hold much interest. For the rest of us, it will be a welcome companion, a reliable tool in our daily lives.
We have such a wealth of prayers from the saints that it must have been a considerable challenge selecting those which are included. I could wish there were an index, as roughly 270 pages are filled with prayers, and quickly finding any one in particular is a challenge.
Overall, I am very pleased with this book, and besides my own copy, have ordered more, as gifts for others.
A "head-spinning" good read!
All humour aside, the "Manual for Spiritual Warfare" is an excellent guide, written in a "Church Militant" style, for those of us who not only wish to avoid finding ourselves in a state of full-blown possession, but also for guidance in the ordinary, daily battles with the Master of temptation.
Studying this manual will create an awareness of the battles being waged, impart intel on the identities of those whom wrestle for the Christian's mortal soul; and to aide us in strategic development against their wiles.
Utilizing its teachings fortifies us with the necessary ammunition to defend ourselves against the Enemy's assaults.
Praying its prayers-- we ultimately emerge triumphant!
Upon opening the shrink-wrap, I found a very handsome, well-produced book, with one black satin ribbon bookmark. The compact volume is bound in dark grey, "Premium Ultrasoft" (imitation leather), with sewn binding, and silver page edges.
Directly opposite the copyright page is a presentation page where one may supply info such as Name, Date/Occasion. Also provided are several ruled lines for Personal Notes.
[Please see the two photos I've provided].
Catholic readers should note this publication lacks an Nihil Obstat/Imprimatur.
While I'm neither a theologian, nor a Canon Law attorney, I do feel comfortable stating that the book's overall content is in keeping with the Church's teachings since it appears to be a compilation gleaned from sources (of which I'm quite familiar), most, if not all of them, bearing a valid Imprimatur.
Following the presentation page, is the Table of Contents, a brief Introduction by the author, then the main content in two parts.
Part One: "Preparing for Battle"
Familiarizes the reader with the Enemy (the names, rank, and roles of satan and his minions), as well as the Christian's "Commander and Comrades" (including Our Lady and the Saints, Angels who protect us, and our fellow Militants.)
Also covered are useful "weapons": the Eucharist, Sacramentals, etc.
Closing this section is the chapter, "Keeping the Enemy out of the Camp". Essentially, enlightenment re: the subterfuge employed by the devil in the form of "Trojan horses" (Ouija boards, seances, New Age, etc.) and how we (unintentionally) invite him into our ranks.
Part Two: "Aids In Battle"
An extensive, fairly comprehensive coverage of Church teachings re: spiritual warfare based on the Catechism, Church Councils, and Papal documents.
Next, are many helpful, informative chapters of scriptures, advice/quotes from the Saints, Prayers, Devotions, and Hymns (without musical notation).
Concluding the book is a three-page section listing excellent resources for further study.
Scripture quotations in this book are as follows:
• OT: RSV-2nd Catholic Ed. (Ignatius ©2006)
• NT: "Confraternity NT" - a revision of the Challoner~Rheims version (1941 Ed. by Confraternity of Christian Doctrine).
Overall, the "Manual For Spiritual Warfare" is a sturdy, portable, and invaluable resource. One I can easily recommend for all good Christian soldiers interested in winning the eternal war being waged for our very souls.
~. Ephesians 6:10-20 sums it up best.~
"...Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil..."
