I was recently browsing through the spiritual warfare section in the local Christian bookstore. As usual, I was shocked and horrified with the amount of useless material that is being peddled to the unsuspecting. Warren Wiersbe’s book, The Strategy of Satan cuts through the nonsense and effectively tackles two critical questions concerning spiritual warfare:
1. What is the strategy of Satan?
2. How shall Christians detect and defeat him?
Wiersbe begins by characterizing Satan as a deceiver, destroyer, ruler, and accuser. Satan targets the mind, body, will, heart, and conscience. Wiersbe underscores the chief weapons that the enemy utilizes and his purposes in wielding these weapons. And the author includes the biblical defense against each of Satan’s stratagems.
The remaining chapters provide practical and biblical help in defeating the enemy. Wiersbe’s counsel is rooted in sound exegesis and provide readers with a wealth of knowledge for the battlefield. Warren Wiersbe brings his typical style to the table in this book – his writing is clear and simple to understand and his aim is directed at the heart of the believer.
