The Full Armor of God: Defending Your Life from Satan’s Schemes

By: Larry Richards
The Full Armor of God is an interesting read about spiritual warfare. Author, Larry Richards, basis for the book is the book of Ephesians. The book is broken into seven parts and includes an Appendix A and B. Part 1 discusses understanding spiritual forces while Parts 2 – 6 focus on the Armor of God. The book concludes with Part 7. Appendix A and B discuss Christian Counseling and a “Live Free Support Group” lesson plan.
This book gives practical advice regarding spiritual warfare.  The author points out Satan’s schemes and what we can do to combat them.  One example is given in Part 3 about a man who was given a job opportunity that he always wanted.  However, the job required him and his family to move from California to Illinois.  The couple was excited about the opportunity but something was holding them back.  They became full of anxiety as the cold temperatures in Illinois would require them to purchase winter clothing for their three children.  They felt the calling to Illinois but did not have the money for the new clothing.  Larry explains how anxiety is one of Satan’s most common attacks.  He further explains how to combat anxiety with the shield of faith.  The book is full of other examples and guidance on how we can overcome the enemy if we only use the power given to us.
*This book was provided by Chosen Books for my honest review.
