About the Book:
Behind the backdrop of our daily lives, a hidden war is raging. The players are as powerful as they are invisible. What's on the line: your very heart and soul.

Are you ready for the battle?

After spending years as a medium, witch and ghost hunter, Kristine McGuire emerged from behind enemy lines to reclaim her identity in Christ. She brings unique insight, revealing Satan's 7 favorite battlefields as well as the most effective tactics he employs in the battles we face everyday.

In this essential guide to the spiritual war zone, you will learn 30 battle-tested strategies for victory from a spiritual warrior who has been there. Kristine's simple but powerful insights will empower you to engage your enemy without fear . . . and, in the power of Jesus, to win.

My Thoughts:

Spiritual warfare.  It is in the prayers we say or forget to say.  It is in the choice to be kind or hurtful.  It is in our work ethic or lack thereof.  It is in the people and relationships in whom we choose to invest or not to invest.  It is in the experiences, mundane or supernatural, we accept or deny. It is the causes we take up or reject.  Every day the battle wages.  You are a spiritual warrior.  The time has come.  Take up spiritual arms.  And with God’s help, make your stand.”  (p. 226)

WOW!  What a powerful book!! Beginning with a clear definition of what spiritual warfare is not, accurately defining what it IS, and then Biblically unpacking our identity as God’s children, identifying each piece of our armor and then accurately pinpointing common battlegrounds….well folks, Kristine McGuire leaves you fired up and ready to walk into battle!

I don’t mean that in a glib, cheerleader, shallow way.  I mean this book Biblically teaches you about spiritual warfare in a way that is clear, concise and easily understood.  The chapters are brief, and each one ends with questions to consider, Scripture to ponder and a practical way to apply what you’ve learned.  It is a powerful tool to equip every believer for battle!

I was able to identify some areas of false belief in my own life about this subject.  When the light of God’s word illuminated the truth, I was so amazed at what I was able to understand and apply!  I am very grateful to have this book in my library!!  I was introduced to Kristine’s work when I read Escaping the Cauldron:  Exposing Occult Influences in Everyday Life.  Her personal testimony is a sweet testimony to God’s faithfulness, mercy and grace! 

I am happy and excited to recommend this book to all believers!  Your life will be changed through the work of the Holy Spirit and the truth of God’s precious Word!!  Thank you Kristine for this powerful book!!
