The Full Armor of God: Defending Your Life from Satan's Schemes by Larry Richards
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
"Respected scholar and speaker Larry Richards offers a balanced,
evangelical-friendly approach to spiritual warfare based on the book of
Ephesians. Unique among books on warfare and deliverance, this
easy-to-follow handbook draws riches from the Bible, while also offering
tactical guidance for conquering the demons of fear and doubt that
assail believers. Framing his teaching on Paul's armor of God
passage in Ephesians 6, Richards uncovers strategies of Satan and
analyzes the armor piece by piece to reveal how God provides protection
from every attack of the enemy. Hands-on exercises at the end of each
section, plus in-depth, analytical appendixes, help readers identify and
stand against powers of evil--and experience true freedom."
This is a well written and very timely book. In the Bible, the book of Ephesians is where we find the reference of putting on the full armor of God. This book starts with Understanding Spiritual Forces and takes the reader all through the various elements; Helmet of Salvation, Shield of Faith, Sandals of Peace, Breastplate of Righteousness, and the Belt of Truth.
I do believe that we all are locked into a daily battle with the devil and it takes a strong mind and will to overcome this. This is called a "tactical handbook". Like it or not, we all need this information and need to learn to put it into practice on a daily basis. This book guides us through that process.
I received this free book from Baker Publishing Group, Chosen Division, for my honest review.
