The Full Armor of God, Larry Richards

This review is part of a book review program with Bethany House. The Bethany House book review program is simple: I request a book from the links they send via email, then I read the book they send and write a review on this blog and a retailer’s site (such as Amazon).

Covering spiritual forces from a Christian perspective; how they are at war against the world and how to fight back. Using Paul's letter to the Ephesians to help illustrate and guide his defense plan, Richards also covers how God can help us fight against such spiritual attacks.

I wasn't sure about reading this book at first, since it had been a long time since reading Ephesians. After a refresher in Ephesians, however, I found myself completely swept up in Richards' engaging and straightforward approach. Though I can't find enough words to say how interesting, helpful, and awesome this book is, I hope that all my readers put it on their must-read list.

Out of a 1-10 (low/high) rating, I'd rate this book at about a 7. I loved his perspective on this subject and particularly loved his use of Paul's experiences in Ephesians.
