Leader’s Edge (Spiritual Formation)
Spiritual Warfare in the Storyline of Scripture: A Biblical, Theological, and Practical Approach
William F. Cook III and Chuck Lawless
B&H Academic, 2019, 368 pages
Seminary professors Bill Cook and Chuck Lawless provide a comprehensive study of a topic that is of key importance in the life of every believer. The first part of the book surveys and analyzes incidents of spiritual warfare from Genesis through Revelation, creating a biblical framework for understanding the reality of Satan’s on-going assault on humankind. Building on that framework, the book then offers practical insights into some of Satan’s most common attacks on believers, and adds strategies for how we might stand against his onslaught. Readers will gain a more complete understanding of what the Bible teaches about spiritual warfare in order to live in victory, confident that Satan is an enemy who has already been defeated.
