Some Christians believe strongly in the existence of demons and spiritual warfare. Others downplay or even ignore the idea. With such divergent views, how are Christians supposed to know the truth about demonic forces at work in this world? The Invisible War examines what every believer needs to know about Satan, demons, and spiritual warfare, offering a balanced look at this controversial subject. This provocative book will help Christians understand what the Bible says about these threats and will show them how they can safeguard themselves and their families through prayer. Now repackaged for a new generation, The Invisible War offers a balanced look at what is going on in the spiritual realm and what believers can do to defend themselves.

If you want a deep exploration of Ephesians 6 and a dose of spiritual warfare reality, this is a must read. Chip Ingram takes you through his personal stories of spiritual warfare without holding back. You’ll learn about each piece of God’s Armor, how to identify spiritual warfare, how real it really is, and how you can get protection from it.

I had been looking for a good book like this for a long time. I had suspected I was under attack and couldn’t seem to shake it. Within the first few pages, I was able to identify situations in my life where spiritual warfare was most likely happening, and other parts where my brain had taken me off into left field.

This book is filled with supporting scripture to Ephesians 6. You’ll go on an adventure all over the Bible in some parts. I really appreciate being able to validate people based on scripture as commanded by Luke in Acts 17.

My single most valuable take-away from this was spiritual warfare is very real. It is dangerous, and we cannot possibly win on our own. We need to put on our armor and pray. Pray hard. Pray constantly. Pray with a mission.

Don’t hesitate to buy this book.
