Evangelical-Friendly Approach to Spiritual Warfare Respected scholar and speaker Larry Richards offers a balanced, evangelical-friendly approach to spiritual warfare based on the book of Ephesians. Unique among books on warfare and deliverance, this easy-to-follow handbook draws riches from the Bible, while also offering tactical guidance for conquering the demons of fear and doubt that assail believers. Framing his teaching on Paul's armor of God passage in Ephesians 6, Richards uncovers strategies of Satan and analyzes the armor piece by piece to reveal how God provides protection from every attack of the enemy. Hands-on exercises at the end of each section, plus in-depth, analytical appendixes, help readers identify and stand against powers of evil--and experience true freedom.
“A battle manual for every Christian.” —Sinclair B. Ferguson The Christian life is a battle. We are in a daily struggle against the world, sin, and Satan. But God didn’t leave us to fend for ourselves. He gave us his own armor—armor that Jesus has already worn on our behalf all the way to the cross. The same power that raised Christ from the dead is now at work inside of us. This book unpacks each of the pieces of spiritual armor Paul describes in Ephesians 6, inviting us to take up the armor each day, all while resting in the finished victory of Christ and the assurance that our strength for the battle comes from him.
As Christians, we are commanded to "put on the full armor of God (Ephesians 6:12)." Athletes know and understand that they have a uniform to wear that identifies which team they're on and have the proper protection for the sport. Christianity has a uniform and it was designed by God to protect us on the battlefield. We are, therefore responsible to wear our armor daily to "fight the good fight of faith." ArmorUp is a daily reminder that we must not only prepare for the physical battles we face, but also for the spiritual battles.

Do you ever wonder what the "full armor" of God really is? Do you have a hard time trying to figure out just how you are supposed to put this armor on and actually use it in this day and age? Are You Ready? seeks to guide you through each element of God's armor described in Ephesians 6:13-18. It provides insights as to what each part represents and how we use it. In the "Making It Real" sections, each colored pencil drawing and story depicts a possible situation in the life of a "tweener" or teenager and the decision each has to make--to use the armor God has provided or ignore it. One more thing. To honor the Lord for giving her the ability to draw, Lynn has hidden a cross in every colored pencil drawing. Can you find them? About the Author and Illustrator Lynn lives in Southern California with her husband, best friend, and soul mate, Gary, whom she married in 1968. They raised two sons, who are now both married and who have blessed them with four grandchildren. Lynn has worked with children and parents for well over 30 years, either teaching in the public school, leading in children's ministry, or being a mentor/advisor to teenagers. Her love and concern for young people and teaching them about God has grown stronger with each passing year. Finally, the Lord led her to use her artistic talents, lessons He had taught her, and her passion for young people to produce her first book, God's True Love Revealed (already in its second printing). It included 23 of her colored pencil drawings of children and a timeless collection of messages for children and their parents. When Lynn had finished the last page of that book, touching on using the full armor of God, the Lord made it quite clear that she would be writing another book on how to actually use the full armor of God. This time, however, she would be writing to "tweeners" and teenagers. Again putting to use her drawing ability, experiences with teens, and the Lord's leading, Are You Ready? was created seven years later. It is Lynn's heartfelt desire that through these pages you will understand just how much the Lord loves you and will provide you with everything you need to survive your teen years and beyond.
Paul was the most influential figure in the early Christian church. In this epistle, written to the founders of the church in Rome, he sets out some of his ideas on the importance of faith in overcoming mankind's innate sinfulness and in obtaining redemption. With an introduction by Ruth Rendell
