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.

The One True Love of Alice-Ann by Eva Marie Everson

Oh, just where do I begin? This is the stuff in which great novels are made. I made my way through this richly beautiful novel turning page after page with such deep emotion and thought. I couldn't turn the pages quick enough, but I didn't want it to end to soon. It's one of those novels you could continue reading as long as there were pages. No page just made of fluff, words with no meaning on the page. Every single line in this novel created a story that will last in my heart forever. 
Ms. Everson, I am so happy stories of the war were shared with you. Oh, to have your Sunday school teacher share with you, "You can't choose who you fall in love with, but you can choose who you marry", is a blessing that has now enchanted your readers. What a story you have weaved together. History penned with such depth, detail, and a story that captures the heart. 
This lovely story begins in 1941. The war has started. Picture a family gathered around the Zenith to hear t…

The Illusionist's Apprentice by Kristy Cambron

I want to begin this review sharing two reviews I was blessed to do. The Butterfly and The Violinand A Sparrow in Terezin. For me these two novels were masterpieces. Works of such exquisite beauty. They showed that Kristy Cambron is gifted with the pen, a master storyteller. They remain two of my all-time top favorites. 
It was for this reason I was thrilled to be receiving a copy of The Illusionist's Apprentice. Once again Cambron shows us a masterpiece of bringing a story to readers that speaks of faith and our Lord. Although throughout the novel these aspects are not boldly proclaimed, but are masterfully weaved throughout the story. 
Magic and illusion are not the same. I love how she brings this truth. Love that the main character was an apprentice to the master of illusion. She takes the use of being an apprentice and walks that road with integrity and hope. When we choose to walk with Christ we are His apprentices. We are to walk as the main character, Wren Lockhart walked…

The" I Am" Makes Us Think About What "i am"

In Genesis 1:26-27 it shares something valuable to each of us about who we are in God. We are created in His image. What I love about this verse below is that is says, "make man in OUR image". What's OUR? The trinity, God, the Holy Spirit, and Christ Jesus. Ponder that. I mean really go deep. We are make in THEIR image. 
"Then God said, "Let US make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them."
We are His workmanship. He knew us before we were ever born. He weaved us together within the womb, but even before then He planned our life perfectly for us. That's so much to ponder isn't it? 
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared…

The Glassblower by Petra Durst-Benning

I came across this selection on Amazon. I had seen so many reviews that it intrigued me. I had never read anything from this German author. The cover caught my attention as did the description of this novel. 
It's a part of a trilogy. I am getting ready to open up book 2, The American Lady. I cannot wait to begin. I tell you this book marveled me. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. What a journey into another time and place. 
We travel to Germany where this novel is set. The year is 1890 and we find ourselves in Lauscha, Germany. The author did a fantastic job at the perfect description of not only the area, but circumstance, and heart of the characters. Her writing style flows so easily that the pages almost turn themselves. 
The characters are easy to love. Three sisters who are now wondering, after their father had passed from this earth,  how they will now provide for themselves. It isn't going to be easy, but these sisters show us how to prevail over challenges that…

Unexpected Blessings

The last words my dad spoke to me from his hospital bed were, "Rob, take care of your mom." Those are words I have never forgotten. I have not only honored them for my dad, but for my mom. I too am commanded by my Father to honor my mother and father.
"Honor your father and mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the Lord your God is giving you." Exodus 20:12
My mom gave her life in caring for me. On my first birthday, my very first Christmas, was spent in the ICU as I was very sick with pneumonia. A little later I would burn myself with spilled coffee. A few years later I would tumble down many stairs and once again spent time in the hospital. 
I remember all the times I was sick and could feel my mom's hand brush against my forehead as she checked for fever. All the times she must have stayed up all night as I was sick. 
When I was little she would pour me a bowl of Raisin Bran. I loved it. Only I didn't like the raisins. She would take t…
