Book Review: The Invisible War

"The Invisible War" by Chip Ingram is a must read for Christians!

Overview: Some Christians believe strongly in the existence of demons and spiritual warfare. Others downplay or even ignore the idea. With such divergent views, how are Christians supposed to know the truth about demonic forces at work in this world? The Invisible War examines what every believer needs to know about Satan, demons, and spiritual warfare, offering a balanced look at this controversial subject. This provocative book will help Christians understand what the Bible says about these threats and will show them how they can safeguard themselves and their families through prayer. Now available in trade paper, The Invisible War offers a balanced look at what is going on in the spiritual realm and what believers can do to defend themselves.

Dawn's Review: 5 of 5 Stars

What I Liked: The whole book is chalk-full of practical "how to" ways to stay in the Lord and fight spiritual battles when they arise.  This book was mentioned in another book, "For the Joy Set Before Us" by Erica Fye and I am so glad I got it! Chip Ingram has extensive experience with spiritual warfare and is a wealth of knowledge.  It was eye-opening, giving real-life examples of spiritual warfare going on in the U.S. and overseas. It also gives reasons why most Western Christians don't seem to experience much in the way of spiritual warfare. 

It explains the urgency for prayer that is consistent, intense, and strategic and if we'd pray like that, more spiritual battles would be won.

The Bible says to put on your spiritual armor, but "The Invisible War" helps explain what each armor piece is, what it does, and it explains how to put it on. I underlined something on every page - that's how good it is! This book is a keeper! It will be a reference tool I will go back to over and over again!

  1. Spiritual warfare is very real. Those who dismiss it are sadly deceived.


I appreciate your comments! I try to respond to each one.
