The Spiritual Warfare Answer Book by David Jeremiah

I have loved everything I have read by David Jeremiah. I too have his study Bible which I use daily for my study. This book makes a great companion to any study. It would be a great gift. It would make for a  great tool for a pastor, teacher, student of the Word. 

This little gem would be awesome to just keep handy as a daily reminder, continually reading through like a devotional for encouragement and wisdom in the Word. It is one I will continue to turn back to in my faith journey.

The questions asked are questions that the believer has pondered, but many times just questions we never ask. Its easy to just ignore Satan and push all that evil out of sight, right? Wrong. Satan is very real. So many attacks on our daily lives are thrown at us by Satan and we place that blame on other things of this world. This is a book that will awaken you to the reality of how real Satan is and just how deceptive he is. He knows each of us, knows our lives in detail. His attacks are very real. 

This is a must read for every believer. Why? Because what this book contains about spiritual warfare isn't a subject every pastor preaches. It isn't a lesson we often find in our Sunday school book. It is in fact something that many don't believe exists at all. As the spiritual battle around us is so very real we need to know everything scripture tells us so that we can prepare and fight this battle with the tools that have been given to us. 

David Jeremiah is so informative. He gives us a mighty tool for our daily walk. What I admire about him is the fact that he never strays from the Word. He goes below the easy surface and digs mighty deep giving us every aspect we need to understand and live out the Word. 

In this newest book Jeremiah takes us to the armory shop of God. He shares with us just what to put on the armor of God means. He goes through each and every piece of armory. But he too shares just why we need to suit up daily. The spiritual battle around us is very real. Once we understand the truth of Satan, the mighty power of our God, and the battle around us we can have wisdom for this journey before us.

Throughout the book Jeremiah asks a question. Here are just a few:
Why study spiritual warfare?
Are we really in a war?
Against whom are we fighting?
Why is it important to understand the enemy?
What do we know about Satan's origin?
How powerful is Satan?
Are there different kinds of demons?
How does Satan attempt to imitate God?
What armor has God given me for warfare?
What is the purpose of prayer in God's armory?
How can I persevere in the battle when I'm afraid?
...and so much more!!

Each question asked flows easily to the next giving us a broad spectrum of the armor of God. He moves from each question with such ease he makes it so easy to understand. When we can easily understand it gives us a greater desire to learn more.

As Jeremiah gives a question he answers in a way that is easy to understand. He shares much about Satan, but even more so on the armor of God, just what each piece is, why we need it, and how to use it. From the introduction to the conclusion I kept turning pages. I grabbed my highlighter and deeply pondered the truths that he shares. I was excited to get out my Bible and search the scripture he shares. That's something extraordinary about Jeremiah. He always brings the Word to the forefront. 

We too are given The Warrior's Prayer which is a prayer for the believer to speak to the Lord each morning as we rise to all the day will bring our way. He gives a reference guide for spiritual warfare and prayer. Prayer is powerful in this battle we are living and needed for the journey. This is one of those books that is going to make a huge impact on the believer's heart, the wisdom they carry for the battle ahead, and the way they live out their daily life. 

This book was a gift from Thomas Nelson for sharing my review with you.
