Warfare Review

Book Review: 

Understanding that you are at war, understanding the enemy, and understanding the tools that God has given us, is vital in winning the spiritual battle that we face each and every day. Tony Evans, in his book Warfare: Winning the Spiritual Battle, helps provide the tools that we need to be successful in the fight.

Evans, the founder and senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas, has given us through Moody Publishers a 224 page book for this. This goes well with earlier works that he has published such as Victory in Spiritual Warfare Bible Study Book: Field Guide for Battle published in 2016, Victory in Spiritual Warfare: Outfitting Yourself
for the Battle published in 2011, and Prayers for Victory in Spiritual Warfare published in 2015. The subject of spiritual warfare is one that he is quite familiar with and this shows in his newest work.

This book helps us understand that so many of the problems that we face each day are a result of this war. He discusses the battle that we face individually, in our families, in our church, and in society. He helps us
understand the enemy that we face in Satan as well as his demon force that he uses each day against us. Something that I found surprising was his discussion on the spiritual allies that we have in Angels and in Jesus Christ Himself. To be honest, I have not put a whole lot of thought into that in the past.

Evans ends his book with a helpful discussion of our authority and our weapons that we have have at our disposal so that we can win the battle. He reminds us throughout the book that we are already victorious and that we need to live each day fighting from victory and not just for it.

I found this book to be easy to read and devotional. It is full of Scripture references and would be a helpful tool to be used by anyone that find themselves in a battle. I do recommend that you pick it up.
