Spirit Wars: Winning the Invisible Battle Against Sin and the Enemy
Kris Vallotton, a pastor at Bethel Church in Redding, California, and the cofounder of its School of Supernatural Ministry, knows his way around the spiritual battlefield. For years he was tormented by a host of demonic assaults, though he didn't know the problems were spiritual. Confused, overwhelmed, he actually contemplated suicide--until the Lord delivered him.
Since that time, Kris has spent his life spreading a message of hope and freedom. He's helped people all over the world recognize the devil's stealth attacks and taught them to overcome. Weaving time-tested spiritual warfare tactics with biblical understanding, Kris offers Christians a bold new battle plan, showing how even those in the most devastating of personal battles can be victorious.
Spirit Wars is an interesting book. I was fascinated by Vallotton's testimony and experience with spiritual warfare. He has a different opinion on the subject. To me, this was more of a self help book. There were several things I disagree with or have a little trouble believing such as his claim that it isn't our nature to sin after becoming a Christian and that he has gone several weeks without committing a sin. I felt there wasn't enough scripture to back up his thinking.
One thing I especially liked is the entire book can be taken as a call to return to the gospel. I give it 3 stars out of 5.
I received a copy of this book free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
