Back in September of 2020, my book Understanding Spiritual Gifts: A Comprehensive Guide (Zondervan) was released. Today I’m pleased to let you know that the sequel, Understanding Spiritual Warfare: A Comprehensive Guide (Zondervan), is now available for purchase. Although the notice at Amazon says the release date is April 27, the book is already in stock and ready for shipment. Here are endorsements of it from Wayne Grudem, Matt Chandler, Michael Brown, and J. P. Moreland

“This is the best book that I know of on the subject of Satan and demons. It is practical and pastorally wise. It frequently warns against erroneous teachings and practices. It contains thoughtful explanations of many dozens of Scripture passages. It takes seriously the Bible’s teachings about the reality of demonic influence in our world today. It gives practical, calm guidelines for prevailing in spiritual warfare through the power of Christ. And every section ends with a brief personal history told by someone who has experienced genuine deliverance from demonic oppression. Highly recommended!

Spiritual Warfare isn't something that the weird and wacky are dialed into. It is what is actually waging around all of us. Sam Storms gives us a clear and thoroughly biblical view of our real enemy and shows us how to walk in the victory that is already ours in Christ.

The spiritual realm is very real, which means that spiritual warfare is also very real. The enemy is actively working to destroy our lives, along with the lives of those we love. Yet where can we go to find a reliable guide to this crucially important topic? We need a teacher who is grounded in the Word, full of the Spirit, and with years of experience in practical, hands-on ministry. Dr. Sam Storms is the man for the job, and here in one volume, he tackles the most controversial topics, taking us into the unseen realm and showing us how we can live out the fullness of our victory in Christ. Regardless of your theological beliefs (Sam is an amillennial Calvinist; I’m a premillennial Arminian), if you embrace the Word and Spirit and want to put Satan and his minions under your feet, this book will be your go-to guide.

I know of no one who combines a rigorous, intellectual approach to theology and biblical exegesis with an overtly, unabashedly charismatic supernaturalism the way Sam Storms does. He is truly unique. Understanding Spiritual Warfare is his latest treasure. It is theologically astute, biblically careful, and spiritually/experientially inspiring and enriching. Storms’ book is chock full of authentic testimonies of demonic activity and deliverance. No one can read this book and walk away with a cavalier attitude towards the reality of evil spirits. And as a scholar-pastor, Storms is careful throughout the book to provide practical wisdom and advice for cultivating a balanced and workable approach to dealing with the demonic. This is now the best book on the subject in print. It is my honor to endorse it enthusiastically.

Another good post Sam! People often forget that the invisible world is affecting our day to day lives just as much as the visible world. The holy angels and evil angels are still waging war over the souls of humans still. Kudos for addressing this most important Christian topic.

I'm excited about this book. It will be another resource that will encourage the body of Christ.
