Reviews - What do customers think about The Divine Defense: Six Simple Strategies for Winning Your Greatest Battles?
Disappointed Jan 16, 2007
My husband and I were disappointed with the book and we were disappointed to learn that Pastor Jeffress does not believe that signs and wonders are for the church body today. I have witnessed first hand that believers can cast out demons because I have done it. My husband and I know that signs and wonders - casting out demons and healing the sick are for the church today.
Strategies for winning spiritual battles Dec 6, 2006
Review by Richard R. Blake for Reader Views (11/06)
Are you out of your comfort zone when thinking about levitating bodies, exorcising demons, and creepy voices? Jeffress has written this book to help those unaware of the spiritual battle we are in as Christians, and to the Christian fixated to the point of obsession, those giving more attention to the work of Satan than the work of Christ. In "The Divine Defense" Jeffress draws from the passage in Ephesians chapter six on the spiritual armor to suggest six powerful strategies for protecting our faith and to help our families face spiritual battles.
Quotations and illustrations drawn from well known and highly respected theologians and Christian authors authenticate the importance of the principles expressed by the author. Contemporary illustrations from the life and ministry of the author himself help the reader identify, and assimilate, these practical, personal life principles. I was impressed with the solid Biblical basis Jeffress maintained throughout the book. His work is well researched and documented with a wide variety of contemporary sources, and scripture references.
The book is divided into three parts: Understanding the enemy, strategies for success in the divine defense, and living the divine defense. The material is well organized, clearly articulated, interesting, and informative. I personally appreciated the format of the book. The topical headings within each chapter, the easy to read print, and the logical presentation, the simplicity of the definitions of theological terms, all work together to make this an incredible reading experience.
A study guide is provided for personal study or small group discussion. The questions offer stimulating, thought-provoking material from each chapter of the book. Credits for the well chosen quotations are included at the end of the book and become an excellent resource for future reading and study.
Robert Jeffress, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Wichita Falls, Texas, a church of 9,500 members, and Bible teacher on the internationally broadcast Pathway to Victory television program, is well qualified to author this book. The "The Divine Defense" equips the reader with a practical strategy for living. This book should be read by every pastor, Bible, teacher, student, and individual Christian. It is a book to read, to study, and to reread.
Numerous endorsements for this book verify the importance of the theme "The Divine Defense" and the concrete presentation and conclusions of the author, Robert Jeffress. I concur with their glowing recommendations. Jeffress' book is a wake up call for today's Christian.
A Battle Manual for Believers Nov 18, 2006
This is another great book from Robert Jeffress. I have enjoyed his other books and find this new one to be top notch as well. He has the rare ability to take Biblical truth and make practical applications right where we live. The Bible tells us Satan is like a roaring lion seeking to destroy our lives. Jeffress tackles the battle with Satan, and his demons, head-on. He gives the reader what he calls "six simple strategies for winning" life's greatest battle - the battle for eternity. I highly recommend this well written and Biblically sound new book.
