Review: Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices

In this review of “Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices,” you’ll identify and embrace strategies for waging spiritual warfare. The book is written by Thomas Brooks (1608-1680), but he doesn’t write like an old dead guy. He sounds instead like he’s planted a bug in the war room of Satan himself and is spying on the enemy for our benefit.

Review: To Change the World

This is a book review of “To Change the World” by George Davison Hunter. If cultural influence is something that you desire, this is a book you can’t pass up.

Review: The Ishbane Conspiracy

This book review of Randy Alcorn’s demonic thriller “The Ishbane Conspiracy” helps one understand that a demon may not want to possess you but simply distract you from following Christ. It’s premise and the means used by the demon Ishbane are sobering.
