Kind of hokey but solid in its content. Interesting and important for consideration of spiritual warfare. I've read it several times.

This is probably the third time I've read this---maybe fourth. Every other time I imagined some ministry person/pastor that I knew in the role of the main character.

That is through His entire Word but especially through Torah where He reveals His covenants and our instructions. If we wonder why the church is falling away---it's because they have abandoned the very foundation for everything---God's Torah.… (more)
