Are You Ready for Battle?

As a Peace Corps volunteer in rural Nigeria, a much-younger Gordon Dalbey scoffed at an illiterate laborer's account of dark spirits that had invaded his house. The man looked the highly educated American squarely in the eye. "There are no small snakes," he declared.

Even as the smallest poisonous snake can easily kill the largest and strongest man, to discount dark spiritual forces is not only arrogant, but dangerous.

No Small Snakes relates Dalbey's upending journey from scoffer to spiritual warrior, from arrogance to bold humility. Both spiritual memoir and soldier's manual, this book will challenge you to face the spiritual battle at hand today and prepare you to win it – in your heart and in the world.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Dalbey is one of the more prominent figures in the Christian men's movement; some readers may know him already from Healing the Masculine Soul, Fight Like a Man, or Father and Son: The Wound, the Healing, the Call to Manhood. Here, Dalbey moves into new and more dangerous territories: memoir and demon possession. Self-important memoirs by little ministers fly through LJ's offices without cease. Dalbey redeems the impulse to talk about himself by focusing on the true peril: demons. He views demons as real and literal, both in Scripture and modern life, but he also sees that they mirror weaknesses in the self. Some readers may be dismayed by his literalism, as well as his reliance on dubious armchair psychology (did you know that lesbians hate women because of their cold mothers?), but Dalbey has a strong readership.
