/ -- Tactics, Trends, & Traits of the Enemy: Equipping the Believer to Fight Back
(Crossbooks Publishing), by Jermaine Gadson, is a compilation of experiences derived from several years of providing pastoral counseling to the local church and community, dealing with personal struggles and hardships, and an in-depth study of various topics in the Bible related to spiritual struggles -- especially spiritual warfare. While it's an excellent handbook for everyday believers in Christ, it is also a great tool for Christian leaders to identify specific ways the enemy tries to attack them in order to steal their influence and destroy their reputation and ministries.
Christians know that the devil never takes a vacation; he works tirelessly through any means possible to keep sinners from the Word of God, thus preventing them from receiving His gift of eternal salvation. He is disguised in many ways by many actions, and will stop at nothing to keep God's people from reaching their potential in Christ.
Drawing on personal experiences and remarkable insight, Pastor Gadson explains how the enemy uses temptation, seduction, fear, isolation, guilt, shame -- whatever it takes -- to steal and destroy a person's life. He is cunning, deceptive and resourceful and we can find him in almost everything we see or do each day. The author intends for his book to be our first defense against the strategies of the devil, offering answers to questions such as, "What are the characteristics of a false prophet or false teacher?" "What strategy is Satan employing today that has subtly crept into the church, unbeknownst to many Christians?" It is not God's will for His people to be taken advantage of by the enemy because of ignorance so it's up to us to learn who the enemy is, what he has done and what he is doing now in order to steal souls that belong to God.
