When I was in college, a group of my friends and I went on a weekend retreat. I was canoeing with a friend who was deathly afraid of water because he didn’t know how to swim. His canoe tipped and even though he was wearing a life jacket, he panicked. As I tried to give him reassurance that he would not drown on my watch, I stuck my paddle in the water and discovered that although it was murky, it was only waist deep. Stifling my laughter, I shouted out, “Darryl, stand up!”
Darryl was battling a lie, but as long as he thought it was the truth, he struggled. Once he realized the truth, Darryl overcame his fear and won his war.
[…] When an enemy is outnumbered and out-armed, his best weapon is deception! The devil is both defeated and disarmed, but he still wins victories in our lives through his cunning use of deception.
Taken from Chapter Five of the book.

What I liked:
She filled the book with personal stories, making it so much more relatable. She used plenty of word pictures, helping you to understand what’s really going on. She gives practical advice to help you out. When you first pick up the book, you might be intimidated by the size, but don’t worry. The chapters are small and set out so that you can find what you need easily.
What I didn’t like:
I didn’t have a problem with this book. It took me a bit to get through it, yes, but I’ve been busy. It was kinda hard to read with my list of other to-reads that are fiction and definitely more interesting, but this was way more beneficial.
Who I would recommend this to:
Anyone who wants to learn more about spiritual warfare.
