I've been lording over the Christianity section of the store on and off from the better part of the last 7 years. Before that I worked in the section sometimes, and I like to think I have been aware of what kind of books live there. When I started the Christian Inspiration / Living section was mainly self-help books with a Christian bent, that and the prosperity gospel books and how to stay a virgin until you get married. In the past few years though there have been more and more books about spi ...more

Excellent scriptural teaching

Impactful. Great for getting into the word and learning from experiences of Pastor Perry and individuals in the bible. Be blessed

This is a very interesting and thought-provoking book. I read it over a very long time period, and actually want to go back and re-read it.

Great for learning how to protect you and your family.

This book is long over due. Though there is much out there regarding the deliverance movement this book by far surpasses them all. I am most impressed with the fact that Perry Stone doesn’t just give a list of prayers but rather approaches this as a lesson in the spirit world. I think too often there is a great divide in believers – those who jump off deep into the spiritual realm without understanding it and those who just want to act as if there is not spiritual world. Either of these approach ...more

I will use an analogy to describe my experience with this book.
At the onset, it felt like someone on 100km/hr cruise control riding on a lonely smooth highway. The velocity is neither too fast nor too slow, just okay. I wasn't impressed overall, but every now and then, Perry makes salient and important points. And I'd say, "okay lets keep going, maybe I will bump into something that will be really important and life-changing."

And I did!

The last chapter or two was a gold mine!

I admit, because of the title I wanted this to be a ridiculously bad book. Unfortunately, it's not. If you believe, like Perry Stone does, the evil spirits can directly influence your life, then the book will fall perfectly into that category, though I can't say that it will be much help since I don't fall into that camp.

If you don't and you want a funny read, this still won't work. Stone misquotes scripture and uses some strange logic, such as blaming modern families like the Kennedys for their
I originally purchased this to read about generational curses, and this book definitely gave me some different insights into possible spiritual warfare. I would probably give this 3.5 stars if able just because it did make me think (even when I didn't agree with the author's viewpoint). While I did find some of his ideas interesting, I found myself getting bored with some sections so it took me quite awhile to finally finish this.

It's true, the other realm we can't see CAN and DOES influence our lives. This fantastic book reveals and proves the disturbing truths about very common and seemingly innocent objects in our homes that can attract evil into our hearts, minds and lives.

Helpful info for believers/non-believers and all faiths/denominations.

Perry Stone is one of the best out there! i have watched him on tv for years and own a couple of his books and have never been disappointed with anything he has written. he lays out simple steps and plans for living a better life and how to fight spiritually against satans attacks that come against you and your family.

Just finished this book after a year of reading. I have become a slow reader. It has good advice and good insight like most other books by Perry Stone. The only thing keeping it from five stars is the fact that some of the personal stories have been told in other books and I get tired of hearing the same story once.

just a bit of american history and personal stories. Stone is influenced so much by Jewish culture that he plasters all his books with it. Its lame and predictable and this book is not that great as it could be.
Jan 12, 2013 rated it it was amazing
Very powerful and insightful. The stories, especially of the Kennedy's were extremely enlightening. Some of the ideas are a little extreme, but these are extreme days! Chew on the meat, spit out the bones... But read this book if you want more tools to help you win in the spiritual combat we face!

Life changing information!

This information was the next step in my spiritual growth. The practical application for my life was a God ordained encounter. I love how I can count on God to lead me to lead me to the next revelation. Thank you Jesus!

Why settle & live in defeat all your life, when you can pick up your god-giving spiritual authority over the evil rulers of this world and make the decision to live the life God intended for you all along.
Insightful, Informative, Encouraging, Liberating!!!

Interesting read. I do believe in supernatural battles occurring. This book has a lot of interesting theories about things pertaining to spiritual forces. some chapters were better than others and he states he did a lot of research. I would like to know more about that research.

Somethings might start small, however, if God is present in them it will outlive the initiator. 'The good seed of God's Word that dwells in you and you continually planting into the hearts and minds of your own family will outlive you..' Happy planting and the Holy Spirit will bring the harvest.

Ok, HOW do you purge your house? There are a few suggestions here and there but nothing like Prayers that Heal the Heart.
