Overview

The Evangelical's Guide to Spiritual Warfare: Scriptural Insights and Practical Instruction on Facing the Enemy by Charles H. Kraft

Are you aware of the spiritual battle being waged around you today?

The truth is that although spiritual warfare is a major theme in the Bible, many of us gloss over it—or ignore it completely. But 80 percent of the synoptic gospels addresses the battle with evil spirits, and Jesus and His disciples set a clear example for believers. We cannot afford to practice a powerless Christianity in a fallen world.

In this essential, accessible resource, former evangelical seminary professor and missionary Charles Kraft helps you find your footing in the spiritual battle. Based on a solid biblical foundation and on decades of ministry experience, this book will help you:

· Differentiate between myths and truths about spiritual warfare
· Recognize the everyday battles taking place around you
· Learn what demons really are and what they actually do
· Understand the rules for engaging the enemy
· Achieve victory in daily battles with the help of the Holy Spirit

Don't let fear keep you from engaging the spiritual forces at work around you. Some problems can't be overcome in any other way.

"This book is a must-read for anyone looking to engage in spiritual warfare." —Larry Richards, author of The Full Armor of God

"Dr. Kraft has removed the veil of mystery that has surrounded deliverance ministry for far too long. With truth and honesty, he has opened the door to the evangelical community and given us the tools to set the captives free."—Tim Howard, president and founder, Wellsprings of Freedom International

"For more than thirty years now, Dr. Charles Kraft has been studying and writing about spiritual warfare. In this latest book, Dr. Kraft summarizes his findings and shares from his years of experience his approach to inner healing and deliverance ministries. This book needs to be read by every student studying spiritual formation, by every missiologist engaged in missionary activities and by every pastor and church worker committed to making healthy disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ."—Douglas Hayward, department chair, Graduate Intercultural Studies, Cook School of Intercultural Studies, Biola University

"Personally awakened to the spiritual nature of our Christian faith, Charles Kraft calls us to wake up as well. This book is a must-read for any who seek to understand God's work in the world today from the vantage point of an evangelical who daily engages in spiritual warfare."—Scott Moreau, professor of intercultural studies, Wheaton College Graduate School

"Most Christians are blind to the spiritual realities around us. This book pulls back the veil into the unseen world, where there is a battle. This book will quickly become a classic. Charles is steeped in wisdom in the area of spiritual warfare and has dedicated his life to bringing restoration to the church."—Judith MacNutt, M.A., president and co-founder, Christian Healing Ministries

"Charles Kraft has taken a topic that is still controversial among some in the body of Christ—spiritual warfare—and boiled it down to something we can all agree on: There is an enemy countering expressions of God's love in the lives of believers and lost souls alike that we must combat."—Jennifer LeClaire, senior editor at Charisma magazine and director of Awakening House of Prayer in Fort Lauderdale

"Again, Chuck Kraft has reminded us that 'we are at war with a cruel enemy.' This guide to the warfare reflects Dr. Kraft's passion for God's people to experience the full measure of the Father's love. His writing is grace-filled, balanced, thoughtful and practical."—John Shultz, Ph.D., president, Ashland Theogical Seminary

Charles Kraft has done it again. He speaks from his arsenal of experience on Inner Healing and Deliverance in a way that is very encouraging. He paints with a broad brush as well a fine one in helpful specifics based on experience as well as the ever present leading of the Holy Spirit. He answers many questions by critics who question motives and methods with sound Biblical advice. I recommend this book for all who seek freedom and all who seek to help others walk in freedom.
