Overview

Spiritual warfare is a popular topic, with no shortage of books addressing the subject. However, rather than this important issue being developed from a biblically-founded view, it is often drawn from extra-biblical ideas, with God's Word brought to the service of human notions. In 'Warfare Witness' Stanley Gale sets out to rectify this trend.Spiritual warfare forms the backdrop against which we understand life, the work of Christ and our work of ministry in the world in which we live. God has not left us without instruction on the subject of the spiritual opposition we face and how we are to wage spiritual warfare. In fact, the Bible is full of the counsel of God to equip us for the task. 'Warfare Witness' fixes our attention firmly upon God's word, enabling us to understand the opposition believers face in reaching others for Christ.Jesus has won the war as only He could, but there remains a battle taking place, one that involves us. In our spiritual growth we face a foe and it is of great importance that we know what this foe looks like, and how to deal with it. The Lord has not left us to fight this battle alone, and when we look to his word we will find it an immense source of strength, guidance and preparation for the fight.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
We are at war, engaged in a mighty spiritual battle. But this war, as Stanley Gale reminds us, is being fought in the homeland. We need someone with a concern for the church and a pastor's love for it to speak to us about these things. This is exactly what Stanley Gale does. In addition to giving helpful counsel on personal witness, the life of fellowship, prayer, and other vital themes, he sounds the reveille in our ears to awaken us to serve with renewed vigour in the King's army. ~ Sinclair B. Ferguson (Associate Preacher, St Peter's Free Church, Dundee, Scotland)

"Warfare Witness offers sane biblical guidance for Christian engagement in the invisible war that rages between God and the Devil. In contrast to many misguided strategies for spiritual warfare - one thinks of spiritual mapping, words of knowledge, binding demons, - Stan Gale shows what the Bible really teaches about the attacks of Satan and defending against them. His approach to spiritual warfare is centered on Christ, rooted in church history, and focused on the ordinary means of grace that the Holy Spirit uses to save people in Christ: prayer and the ministry of God's Word." ~ Philip G. Ryken (President, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois)

'Stan Gale reminds us that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is not a Gospel of peace and joy only, but of the Kingdom of God, and power for living, and an advancing reign of righteousness, peace, and joy which we are privileged to enter and to proclaim. Here are the believer's marching-orders in the spiritual warfare. This book will shake up your understanding of the Christian life and point you toward an exhilarating mission of seeing God work in you in ever-new and ever more surprising ways. Read this book; but don't just read it: take up the challenge Dr Gale holds out to us. As he assures us from the Word of God, the adversary, though formidable, is bound, and all his house is open for the plundering.' ~ T M Moore (Principal of the Fellowship of Ailbe, Dean of the Centurions Program)
