In their book Spiritual Warfare, Brian Borgman and Rob Venture guide us through Ephesians 6:10-20, the famous passage on spiritual warfare. There seems to be two extremes concerning the war all Christians are in. One side says that every spiritual battle needs to have an exorcism performed, rebuking the devil and the like. The other side will say that our battles have nothing to do with those things and isn’t real. In this book you will find a thought out, balanced approach based on a clear exegesis of the Ephesians passage mentioned earlier.
They make it clear that we are in a battle against Satan and that we need to be equipped to fight that war. Fortunately we are not able to fight it on our own. We need help. That help is found in Christ. He equips us with the armor of God. He strengthens us, arms us and guides us in this daily battle. Throughout the book the authors bring us back to that glorious fact. In the first chapter they remind us that Christ is higher and more powerful than any force that comes against us.
What also struck me about the book is how easy it is to read. When “big” words are used they explain them clearly so anyone can understand. Also it is a quick read.
We need books like this today. Even though you can find a plethora of books on spiritual warfare none approach it from a Biblical viewpoint like this.
