· help others who are under attack
· and more!

Consider Another Way Do you have problems with health, or financially, or perhaps in some other area? The author suggests that the solution could be a spiritual one. Mr. Richards believes there is just as much spiritual warfare today as there was when Jesus walked the earth, and contends we need to get rid of the evil influences in our lives the same way Jesus did. He outlines ways to determine if something is an organic problem, which could be solved by medical means, or if it is an issue in the spiritual realm. If it is the latter, Mr. Richards gives a method to get rid of satanic presences. Included are warnings to be careful to make certain that it is indeed a supernatural situation before beginning the process. This is an easily read 5-star book, with clear instructions written from a Christian viewpoint. The author has lots of experience in spiritual warfare and overcoming evil influences. He also holds a doctorate in religious education along with social psychology, and is a former instructor at Wheaten College Graduate School. Mr. Richards has authored over two hundred books. This subject matter is one I do not have a lot of experience with, but believe this is a valid concern and should be considered, as well as, prayed about. I would also recommend turning to the Bible for guidance as well. The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through Chosen Books and Bethany House Publishing for the purpose of review. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required, or influenced, to give anything but an honest appraisal. Despite my receiving the book free, it has not influenced my judgment.
