Christian Book Reviews by CBM. - Spiritual Warfare: Unlocking the Path to Victory by Dr. Johnny Funderberg focuses Christians by way of a two-fold strategy: knowing our enemy and equipping ourselves in the Lord to stand strong. With Ephesians 6:10-20 of Scripture, informing all of the nature of evil in the world and war each person faces on the Earth. We have a choice which Kingdom to choose: light or darkness, God or Satan. The default is Satan, but as the author gives hope to readers, Jesus has a better way.
Further stating the overwhelming evidence of a spiritual war that wages over our lives, souls, our families, communities, nations and the entire Earth, this war is unseen. If you don’t believe, then that is your destruction. For those who do believe understand there is an enemy waging war against them, looking to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). Thus in this book the author sheds light on the battle that we wage and gives the Armor of God so we will understand and be able to use it in battle. Therefore, the path to unlocking the path to victory in Christ is clearly written. This is a Biblically based and foundational Christian teaching that is simple to read and understand. Understanding spiritual warfare will open blind eyes and purify hearts, enabling others to be effective in their Christian walk, and teaches others how to overcome.
Insightful, encouraging and enlightening, the author begins with a short true story of a man that battled this spiritual battle after coming down with cancer. His story is not unique, something, some unseen stronghold held him in bondage and kept him captive. Therefore, he was unable to see through pride and unable to even pray when the time came. God came and rescued him just before his death. The author uses this story as a springboard into the spiritual battle that we are all in – whether you believe or don’t believe. Additionally, sharing a story of his daughter who he stood in the gap for, thus revealing Satan’s and God’s ability in spiritual warfare. Readers will appreciate how the author relates his experiences, battles, worldviews that include the different levels a person can have in their worldview.
Such chapters as: Introduction, The Battlegrounds, Our Enemy, The Belt of Truth, The Breastplate of Righteousness, The Shoes of Peace, The Shield of Faith, The Helmet of Salvation, The Sword of the Spirit, Prayer, Examples of Spiritual Warfare from the Bible and Endnotes, readers will understand how to fight, how to rest and how to overcome by the weapons God has given us.
