    About the Book:

    Stand Firm Against the Devil's Schemes

    Whether you are aware of it or not, every Christian is locked in a struggle with the spiritual forces of this dark world. If our defenses are weak--or nonexistent--these enemies can, and will, slowly, subtly, lead you away from a life of righteousness. In this tactical guide, bestselling author and trusted theologian Larry Richards offers an ironclad defense plan straight from the Bible. Using Paul's letter to the Ephesians as his infallible guide, Richards reveals how God provides protection from every attack of the enemy--and how you can put on the full armor of God today and every day.

    Including practical, hands-on exercises, this is the essential biblical approach to standing your ground against the enemy's ploys.

    About the Author:

    Larry Richards holds a BA in philosophy from the University of Michigan, a ThM in Christian education from Dallas Theological Seminary, and a PhD in religious education and social psychology from Garrett Biblical Seminary and Northwestern University jointly. He has taught in the Wheaton College Graduate School, served as a minister of Christian education, and written over 200 books, including theological works, commentaries, and several specialty and study Bibles. Larry is currently a full-time author and speaker and lives with his wife in Raleigh, North Carolina.

    My Review:

    The author, Larry Richards takes us on a journey through the book of Ephesians and on to a study that the apostle Paul began centuries before. He begins with a discussion on spiritual forces of evil then and now. The main role of demons and how to combat the forces of evil. The author takes you from the beginning teaching you what each piece of the full armor of God is and what each piece means to the Christian.

    The author is not only a writer but also a public speaker across the United States where he teaches Freedom Workshops. The book is a small expansion of these workshops. This book is a great Bible study on the full armor of God. Through Pauls teachings the author hopes to convey that the devil is always at work trying to mess our lives up therefore mess our spiritual walk up as well. Paul is right when he says this is a spiritual battle that we can only win if we have God on our side.

    **Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review by Bethany House Publishers.

    Larry Richards in his new book, "The Full Armor Of God"

    Larry Richards in his new book, "The Full Armor Of God" published by Chosen Books helps us Defending Your Life from Satan's Schemes.

    From the back cover: Stand Firm Against the Devil's Schemes

    Whether you are aware of it or not, every Christian is locked in a struggle with the spiritual forces of this dark world. If our defenses are weak-or nonexistent-these enemies can, and will, slowly, subtly, lead you away from a life of righteousness.
    In this tactical guide, bestselling author and trusted theologian Larry Richards offers an ironclad defense plan straight from the Bible. Using Paul's letter to the Ephesians as his infallible guide, Richards reveals how God provides protection from every attack of the enemy-and how you can put on the full armor of God today and every day.

    Including practical, hands-on exercises, this is the essential biblical approach to standing your ground against the enemy's ploys.

    Paul wrote in his letter to the Ephesians about the armor of God. There are five parts to God's armor, four of which are defensive in nature. In "The Full Armor Of God" Larry Richards, in separate sections for each armor part, goes into great detail of what that armor part is and how it should be effectively used. In each section Mr. Richards gives us four chapters that always starts with "satan's schemes". Before getting into the armor Mr. Richards devotes the opening part to "Understanding Spiritual Forces". Since it is important to God to provide us with His armor then it should be important to us to use His armor with wisdom and skill. Larry Richards has provided us this book to educate us in how we should be doing battle. Everyone should have a copy of this book. It is an excellent gift idea for family and friends. This is an excellent resource that will be referred back to over and over again.

    The author enforces what some of us already however; he presents

    The author enforces what some of us already however; he presents in detail what can be found in the book of Ephesians. Protecting ourselves against spiritual warfare is an ongoing battle and arming ourselves with the proper protective gear is essential to winning this battle and having eternal life. The armor of God is the only effective weapon when standing against evil forces. As we read in this book, Satan has made his presence known since the beginning of time starting with Adam and Eve. He continues today, operating behind the scenes creating spiritual warfare within our hearts. Satan’s attacks can easily alter our thinking, manipulating us if given the opportunity. The author mentioned how evil spirits can make us feel miserable, useless and unproductive. Chapter four states we are God’s work and will reveal himself through us in a way that will never be seen through someone else. His intentions are for us to have a fulfilling and meaningful life, contrary to what Satan makes us believe. This book teaches us how to arm ourselves and not fall prey to such attacks. But in order to do this we have to be fully armored. The individual pieces of armor and the protection it provides is well covered in this book. This book provides a great source of information and helps us to better understand the book of Ephesians. Thank you Chosen Books for allowing me to share my opinion. Also for giving me the opportunity to select a great book and providing copy free of charge.
