The Warfare of the Spirit: Religious Ritual Versus the Presence of the Indwelling Christ

Front Cover
Moody Publishers, Jun 20, 2006 - Religion - 208 pages

The life of a Christian is packed full of conflict.

The Warfare of the Spirit discusses the persistent struggle against the evil forces of the world, the flesh, and even the deceiving ways of Satan.

Breaking down the spiritual warfare that is going on all around us, in both the physical and spiritual realms, Tozer examines many aspects of the human experience that can potentially damage us spiritually—like concerns about money, social status, conflict with others, or even confusing the meaning Christmas. Tozer also unapologetically states the dangers of adhering to a theology that absolves the unbeliever of any punishment. For if there is no hell, he warns, there is no heaven either. 

Beginning this book with a triumphant call to battle, A. W. Tozer inspires the believer to seek and destroy the evil forces working in this world. This book empowers its reader to eradicate complacency and sloth and live actively for the Lord every day.

About the author (2006)

A. W. Tozer (1897–1963) began his lifelong pursuit of God after hearing a street preacher in Akron, Ohio, at the age of seventeen. The self-taught theologian committed his life to the ministry of God’s Word as a pastor, teacher, and writer. For his flowing prose, Spirit-filled words, and deep conviction, many have called him a modern-day prophet. He is the author of the beloved classic The Pursuit of God and dozens of other works.
