It's a very organized and detailed book. Everything this book contains is helpful for spiritual battles. Keep in mind that this book won't be useful if you don't apply it to your life. Great book, love it.

"...Christian life is a battleground and not a playground" (pg. 127). Understanding this truth you need to learn how to detect and defeat Satan. WWW has a lot of wisdom in the book. One thing that I appreciated about the book is warning at the end of the book: " is a dangerous things to be 'curious' about Satan and the occult. Do not dabble in the doctrine. Recognize the fact that Satan and his hosts will begin to attach you as you grow in your knowledge of their secrets" (pg 162).

This was a good book on how to recognize Satan's attacks. It is very practical in its approach as the author outlines from Scripture how Satan attacks believers and then details how we can defeat Him by putting on the armor of God as outlined in Ephesians 6. It is a short book but full of sound theology. It is well worth the investment.

How does this garbage manage to get such a high average rating?

When I read the description, I thought it was satire. I even read through most of it thinking that it was satire. It is not satire. It is as fucking ridiculous as the summary suggests.

And what the hell is up with the anarchy symbol on the cover? That's not a satanic symbol, or even an atheist symbol. Why is it there? I should have taken that as an indication of the inanity of the content; should have judged the book by its cover.

First, there is a state of war between God and Satan. This inspired book is a handbook of warfae against the Satan. Mr. Wiersbe breaks down the maining of Ephesians 6:10-18, the character of Satan (deceiver, destroyer, ruler & accuser); living by faith, false doctrine, the truth about the fate of Satan; and God's promise to His believers. This is an outstanding book for any believer who is ready to take back the false claims of Satan and take control of one's life.

Recommended by Dr. David Jeremiah during his verse-by-verse series on the armor of God (May 2011)"It's not a devotional book" but for believers who are ready to win in the battle with the enemy.

There's one which has been recreated for Turning Point with revised format and sold exclusively on Dr. Jeremiah's website. I need to make sure I get this one.

(See also 1 Cor. 6 b/c Paul addresses specifically the armor of righteousness)

When I like Weirsbe, I like him a lot. When I don't, I want to throw the book across the room. As he's aged, he's mellowed and I've liked a lot of what he's written in the last 15 years or so. This is no exception. I'm not one who finds a demon lurking under every bush, but even so, this was a nice, gentle, easy exposition of how our Christian culture is being corrupted.

"God renews our lives by renewing our minds, and he renews our minds though his truth. This truth is the Word of God. (Warren W. Wiersbe, The Strategy of Satan: How to Detect and Defeat Him, Page 5)

Ha! I was going through some of the reviews on the book and noticed a few devils writing reviews. You know the ones who wrote bad reviews or 1 star reviews on this book are influenced by the devil. The symbol on this book is not satanic. It is just an A with a circle around it. The symbol that is demo

Powerful and informative, a must read, especially for those who once lived a very dark lifestyle.
"The Strategy of Satan" looked at the four main strategies of Satan, our defense against these strategies, the armor of God, and the origins of Satan and demons. The book did contain useful, correct information and stuck to Scripture. However, I felt like he gave the intellectual answers and left the reader to figure out how to implement them. Ok, so Satan uses physically suffering to make believers impatient with God. I kinda had that figured out before reading the book, and I'm not feeling any ...more

Recommended to Rush by: Dr. David Jeremiah

A timeless classic on the strategies of Christian warfare. This book is a manual of arms for the Christian soldier. It is not a devotional reader for the believer who has gone AWOL. It is a deadly serious guidebook for dedicated Christians who are on the battlefield and want to know how to win. Warren W. Wiersbe discusses basic biblical instruction on defeating the strategies of the devil. Centering his material on Satan's attacks as a deceiver, destroyer, rule

Now it's us a fantastic little book! It was lent to me by a very dear friend!! And just at the right time. Straightforward, scripture saturated and full of discernment and wisdom. Sometimes we forget that there really is a spiritual dimension and battles going on. This helped me a greatvdealmin understanding myself, other pople and what seems like the most bizarre situations!

We used this book as a bible study series--a chapter a week. As a new Christian, it was absolutely enlightening! I highly recommend it for small-group study or simply as a book to read individually. It's short at 157 pages, but it's pretty packed full of basic bible instruction, perfect for a new Christian or one who wants to grow in his or her faith.

I come back to this book every time I start to dive into those dark places of doubt - when I feel attacked or my identity is being smeared by lies from the enemy. Necessary for the arsenal. It's practical - brings you right back to Scripture - who we are and how to fight

Assuming one is reading this as an informative text, in some fashion applicable to reality, the book is absolute shite. Paranoid, raving, utter shite. IF, however, you're reading it for a laugh, the damn thing is priceless. Seriously hilarious read.

This was a great inspiration for staying ahead of the devil! I loved reading this book could not stop reading although I am not a daily reader. Enjoyed learning

Excellent book. Highly practical and insightful, quite short - no 'filler' just solid theology and application that transcends the times. Highly recommend.

This is a "must read" for believers who seek a compelling "life guide" in which to compliment their existing daily Bible study.

Short book with lots of Scripture. Very informative and faithful.
A book every believer should read. On spiritual warfare, this is one of the best.

satan's sole purpose for you is to keep you from God's will and lead you to violation of God's will in order to thwart God in His desires.
