In 40 Questions About Angels, Demons, and Spiritual Warfare, John Gilhooly provides a biblical and balanced perspective on the many issues surrounding the spiritual realm.

Beneficial as a comprehensive overview or as a reference guide to particular subjects, this volume provides concise but thorough answers to many important questions, including: · Do believers have guardian angels? · Can Christians be demon possessed? · Are there territorial spirits? · Why and when did the devil fall from heaven? · What is the role of prayer in spiritual warfare? · Are there such things as spiritual curses?
Though Satan has no right to rule in a believer's life, he can subtly build a stronghold-brick by brick, layer by layer-until he is a dominating force in your life. Mark Bubeck asserts that spiritual warfare requires careful preparation, biblical obedience, and persistent prayer. The Adversary prowls, but he's already been beaten. This book is an essential follow-up to the bestselling The Adversary, in which Bubeck helps Christians grasp prayer practices that enable a victorious walk. Building on the practical instruction of The Adversary, this book shares examples of demonic activity and carries you through the perils and challenges of spiritual warfare. The author focuses on four weapons needed to wage the battle against the enemy.
