    The Adversary is a classic by Mark Bubeck and is a practical handbook dealing with the various aspects of spiritual warfare, answering questions about the nature of Satan’s designs and tactics and teaching readers how to claim the victory Christ has already won.

    I gave it three stars mostly due to application. The content is great. It is an often overlooked subject in the evangelical church. The adversarial nature of satan and his demons is often overlooked. The author does a great job on how giving in to the flesh and the world lead to demon oppression (not possession) of the follower of Christ. My problem with it is some of his tools to fight them. Obviously prayer is a huge part of spiritual warfare....but I always take issue with scripted prayers that I gave it three stars mostly due to application. The content is great.

I may be over sensitive, but it seems to come dangerously close to making Christian mantras. Mantras will do no good in fighting the powers of darkness.

    In my top 2 all-time books on spiritual warfare. The sample prayers are amazingly helpful.

    Very Encouraging Great prayers to pray or use as guidance with your own prayers. The material is practical, down to earth. I experienced breakthrough with an issue that I'd been dealing with for awhile while using some of the prayers. Many of the things the Lord had spoken to me about and instructed me on were confirmed in this book! Very Encouraging Great prayers to pray or use as guidance with your own prayers.

    A little dated in parts and full of prefab prayers, but a pretty good treatment of the subject I think.

    (nb: I received a review copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley) "The Adversary" would be a great name for a YA-Paranormal book. This book is most definitely NOT a YA-Paranormal book. Another thing. It's difficult for me to review this book, simply because author Mark Bubeck's faith and interpretations are substantially different from my own.

This book is most definitely NOT a YA-Paranormal book. Another thing. It's difficult for me to review this book, simply because author Mark Bubeck's faith and interpretations are substantially different from my own. I am reviewing his book as a book blogger, not as a theologian. I was a Lit Major. If Dr Bubeck were writing an extended commentary on "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock," I might feel compelled to chime in, but on the topic of Spiritual Warfare, I happily defer to him. Seriously. I'm very happy he is doing Spiritual Warfare, because I could never do it. Anyway, the self-same adversary referred to in the title is none other than Satan, once among the most exalted of angels, until he developed an "I want to be just like God" complex, and was cast out of heaven. Since then, Satan and his fellow outcasts--demons, et al (Bubeck describes a hierarchy and ranks, much like the Army or the Navy. Satan is Commander in Chief of the Fallen. He has Generals, Colonels, and on down the line.) And Satan's army marches among us, trying to lead us into evil, sometimes possessing us. One thing I found interesting is that Bubeck specifically mentioned "The Exorcist," and the controversy surrounding its release. (This book was originally published in 1975) His parishioners raised a fuss. My impression was that Dr Bubeck was dismissing "The Exorcist" out of hand as an evil force, because it exposed people to evil. There certainly was a lot of evil in "The Exorcist," I'll grant. In the end, though, it was two priests working like hell to drive this demon out of Regan MacNeil. They did so using a Christian Rite, interspersed with prayer and scripture. My point is that "The Exorcist" absolutely confirms his theory: an unbeliever child starts screwing around with a Ouija board, and all hell breaks loose. Two holy men come in, say the right intercessory prayers, and the little girl becomes cute again. Rather than mention the film's subject, he said that "The Exorcist" frenzy was inviting demons to take up residence in people. Bubeck comes from the evangelical faith-warfare school. Basically, the idea is that we should arm ourselves with extensive prayer before going out each day. Demon attacks aren't always as extreme as Linda Blair's character anyway. They can fill the victims' heads with violent thoughts--I should really kill my family with that knife, he offers as one example. Other manifestations are as simple as deep depression or anxiety. The prescription is fervent, specialized prayer, mixed with memorizing certain Bible passages, so that we can ruminate on them wherever we are. Obviously, living a clean life is up there as well. If you're wondering, the best place to find Satan-fighting instruction is Paul's Letter to The Ephesians. Indeed, there's a lot of Paul's work in the mix. Bubeck recommends putting on your spiritual armor every day before you go out. This is another specific sort of prayer. I won't go on--you should get the picture. The primary weapon is "warfare prayer." As a reader, I learned a lot about the Spiritual Warfare movement, as practiced by evangelicals. One complaint I had with "The Adversary" is that many of the subjects Bubeck was describing as gateways to possession were very much mid-1970's phenomena. He identified the great spiritual experimentation that went on then, and wrote about the increase in drug use in more of a 1975 way than a 2013 way (ie, drug use was a new phenomenon). "The Adversary" was originally written in an era with Watergate, Vietnam, the tail end of the counterculture. The idea was to reboot it for today, and in my opinion, there should have been much more about the Internet. Yes, I can find porn in about ten seconds. I could find devil worship sites with a little work, but I could also find online communities of believers, prayer chains, evangelical outreach sites, 24/7, and accessible worldwide. Dr. Bubeck is probably a spectacular minister. I do not doubt his sincerity for one second. His writing style is authoritative but friendly, like a good preacher should be. As a guide to evangelicals seeking help with possession, this book will be a most-helpful tool. Me? I'd still want Max von Sydow slashing my legs with Holy Water, and bellowing the demon out of me.

    This book was great - a handbook on spiritual warfare that's neither hysterical, speculative, or defeatist, but hews close to the Word of God ("Sound doctrine is absolutely essential to victorious spiritual warfare over Satan," Bubeck insists) and is uniquely, refreshingly practical. And it's not just about the devil, either: the chapters on the world and the flesh are incredibly convicting and encouraging, and the prayers provided are a brilliant help on how to pray generally, not just for spiri This book was great - a handbook on spiritual warfare that's neither hysterical, speculative, or defeatist, but hews close to the Word of God ("Sound doctrine is absolutely essential to victorious spiritual warfare over Satan," Bubeck insists) and is uniquely, refreshingly practical. And it's not just about the devil, either: the chapters on the world and the flesh are incredibly convicting and encouraging, and the prayers provided are a brilliant help on how to pray generally, not just for spiritual warfare purposes. I'd recommend this to every Christian but especially anyone who's evangelising, ministering, counselling, or dealing with family members in persistent sin.

    Books on spiritual warfare tend to fall into 2 categories -either they are dry theological tombs with little practical application or they are sensationalistic spending vast amounts of page space dazzling the eyes with fantastic stories of battles with creatures form the Abyss. Fortunately, Mark Bubeck straddles these two extremes and hands us a book that is thoughtful, Biblical, and practical.

The Adversary is a great book to begin your study on spiritual warfare and how to implement strategic prayer in your life. He spend a good deal of the book laying the Biblical foundation for this practice and discovering who the Enemy really is. But the crux of the book is not what the Adversary is doing or what formulas we need to overcome him. The focus of the book is ultimately on Jesus and what He did to overcome the forces of destruction. Highly recommend this book.

    I had a hard time rating this book. It was interesting, but did I like it? No, not really. It's an aspect of religion I have mixed feelings about... which I won't go into here... however, what I will say is that the biblical quotations and the application of them was interesting. The logic in the application is sound, and read as a text I would say that it not only brings up aspects and notions that I had previously not considered when reading the text, but it also causes one to reflect on what i I had a hard time rating this book.

    The Adversary: The Christian Versus Demon Activity was a thought provoking read, although not really one I loved reading - just because of the subject matter. I liked how there was a lot of scripture quotations in the book and even more scripture passages where you have to look them up yourself. It shows that the author did a lot of research. All in all, I liked this book and if you're looking for a book on Christians and demonic activity, then I think this is a good book. *I received a compliment The Adversary: The Christian Versus Demon Activity was a thought provoking read, although not really one I loved reading - just because of the subject matter.

    My #1 book on spiritual warfare. Biblically based. I didn't think his second book on the subject was as good because he reiterated so much of what was in the first.
