I have never recommended a book on spiritual warfare more highly than this one.
I learned more from just the few pages of information in the PREFACE of Carmel Mooney’s book, Defeating Your Inner Demons, than I have in entire volumes on the subject.
Carmel’s down-to-earth conversational writing style makes you feel like you are sitting in the living room with a longtime friend who sincerely desires to help you with some tough life issues…except as she works through certain experiences and situations with her very keen expertise, she points out that these are actually major spiritual battles that you might have been engaged in for decades, and then proceeds to equip you to conquer them once and for all!
I cannot begin to fathom what this world could look like if we were only taught early on how imperative it is to understand that we truly do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places (Eph 6:12).
More importantly, what could this world look like if we were trained early on how to do battle effectively with these forces? So often, life feels like things are just happening to us. We suffer the slings and arrows as best we can because we have not been told that we actually have been gifted far more control over those forces by using Biblical tools and spiritual weapons to defeat them.
Read this book. Gift a copy to every Christ follower you know who desires to walk in the freedom of no longer being oppressed by the enemy of our souls!
