About the Book:
Stand Firm Against the Devil's Schemes
Whether you are aware of it or not, every Christian is locked in a struggle with the spiritual forces of this dark world. If our defenses are weak--or nonexistent--these enemies can, and will, slowly, subtly, lead you away from a life of righteousness. In this tactical guide, bestselling author and trusted theologian Larry Richards offers an ironclad defense plan straight from the Bible. Using Paul's letter to the Ephesians as his infallible guide, Richards reveals how God provides protection from every attack of the enemy--and how you can put on the full armor of God today and every day.
Including practical, hands-on exercises, this is the essential biblical approach to standing your ground against the enemy's ploys.

My Review:
The author, Larry Richards takes us on a journey through the book of Ephesians and on to a study that the apostle Paul began centuries before. He begins with a discussion on spiritual forces of evil then and now. The main role of demons and how to combat the forces of evil. The author takes you from the beginning teaching you what each piece of the full armor of God is and what each piece means to the Christian.

The author is not only a writer but also a public speaker across the United States where he teaches Freedom Workshops. The book is a small expansion of these workshops. This book is a great Bible study on the full armor of God. Through Pauls teachings the author hopes to convey that the devil is always at work trying to mess our lives up therefore mess our spiritual walk up as well. Paul is right when he says this is a spiritual battle that we can only win if we have God on our side.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review by Bethany House Publishers.
