    I haven t read much by Mr MacArthur, but from this book I gather that he is an opinionated man There s nothing wrong with opinions we all have em but it gets tiresome reading opinions that attack others in a how to book Mr MacArthur makes some good Biblical points, but, ironically in my opinion, he errs on the side of paranoid conservatism in other areas Telling Christians to exercise caution when dealing with demonic spirits is wise telling Christians that they have no authority to I haven t read much by Mr MacArthur, but from this book I gather that he is an opinionated man There s nothing wrong with opinions we all have em but it gets tiresome reading opinions that attack others in a how to book Mr MacArthur makes some good Biblical points, but, ironically in my opinion, he errs on the side of paranoid conservatism in other areas Telling Christians to exercise caution when dealing with demonic spirits is wise telling Christians that they have no authority to command demonic spirits is flat out wrong.That aside, this is a helpful book to read to get a very conservative view on the Biblical perspective of spiritual warfare Readers shouldn t treat this as the Word of God, but it is a fine rebuttal to the very extreme charismatic books that abound on spiritual warfare

    This is actually the second or third time I ve read this little book It s a good one to keep on your shelf to reference or re read from time to time MacArthur wrote the book in the early 90 s at the time when the health wealth and prosperity gospel message was abounding in the church This book deals with the spiritual warfare movement that was also taking place coincidentally at the time He takes aim at false doctrine and errant strategies for taking on Satan In some ways its a rebuke to fa This is actually the second or third time I ve read this little book It s a good one to keep on your shelf to reference or re read from time to time MacArthur wrote the book in the early 90 s at the time when the health wealth and prosperity gospel message was abounding in the church This book deals with the spiritual warfare movement that was also taking place coincidentally at the time He takes aim at false doctrine and errant strategies for taking on Satan In some ways its a rebuke to false teachers But,importantly to me, is it s usefulness in refreshing the follower of Christ in key truths of spiritual warfare Ephesians 6 features prominently as one would expect Despite how often I have read on the spiritual armor that Paul writes about in Eph 6, I always learn something new The ah hah which occurred during my re read of this topic was that of the 6 pieces of spiritual armor believers are to equip ourselves with, 3 pieces should always be on and 3 pieces should always be at the ready That was a click for me which now allows me to mentally organize the spiritual equipment in a new andeffective way The shield of faith, as an example of a piece of armor at the ready, is noweasily understood as quite simply faith in God and something large enough to hide behind during battle One may say yes its obvious the shield of faith equates to trusting God But, I think the problem is that we often misconstrue faith in God to mean faith in outcomes I think, however, the faith really needs to be placed in who God is and His promises, not what we want Likewise, the belt of truth always to be worn is a reminder to eliminate encumbrances to spiritual growth In other words, get rid of stuff that will distract us and trip us up There is muchto learn by reading the book and even though it s been in print for many years the insight is timeless

    This was a good read It is informative, convicting, and very encouraging Very practical as well I would suggest this book to any Charismatic believers There was a really good chapter on prayer as well.

    The book is precisely what it markets itself to be the origin of spiritual warfare, its present reality, and a biblical response Dr MacArthur goes into great detail about the spiritual armor listed in Ephesians 6 and how it should be used, combatting the dangerous thinking that Christians should engage with demons.

  6. Don says:

    An excellent book centered around a favorite set of verses Eph 6 10 17 on spiritual warfare John MacArthur is one of the outstanding Christian leaders of our times and he presents a great study on dealing with spiritual warfare Great read
