I came across references to this book in Tom Hawkins' informative summary about spiritual warfare, Cosmic Hierarchy. Tom basically said, 'Take heed of the principles here'.

And frankly, the principles in the book seem to me to be mainly common sense. Yet, clearly what I think of as 'common sense' has eluded a lot of people.

For the last decade, maybe two, I've been surrounded by people who say, 'Don't go up against principalities and powers.' I've nodded and agreed and also thought, But so many pe

Although this book does bring up a very important issue-that of people becoming devastated by demonic attack as the assault the works of darkness-I believe that it misdiagnoses the problem. "Needless Casualties of War" teaches that Christian get hurt by opposing principalities or any demon that's on a higher level than a "personal demon".

The theology in it is based almost solely on a dream. While I do believe in God speaking through dreams and visions, they have problem to be a poor basis for t

John Paul Jackson consistently makes spiritual matters understandable for the rest of us and “Needless Casualties of War” is an excellent example. While the overall topic is spiritual warfare, the principles the author describes are relevant to all believers, not just intercessors and others who actively engage in spiritual conflict. The key is realizing that our spiritual authority is relevant to our domain, not universal. “Needless Casualties” is an important read for any Christian who wants t ...more

I love his commentary about divine justice. I was also very nervous about how I had been praying as I read more & more of the book. It made me a more conscientious prayer warrior.

I learned so much, unexpectedly, I must admit. I've read so much about our authority in Christ, it was a surprise to read about overstepping that authority. The message is much needed.
I don't know what I was expecting when I picked up this book, but I was very surprised at what I read. It taught me so much on how we should conduct ourselves during warfare. Jackson tells you things we should not do and should do through the scripture. I thought his chapters on reviling and terrestrial warfare was so eye opening. I would recommend this book to any believer who wants to correctly operate in spiritual warfare.
