Format: Paperback
This must be the best Christian book i have read this year possibly ever. I think Newton had written inside that it was the second best book to the King James bible. This is strong meat and its teaching sadly lacking in the professing church. He encourages Christians to trust only in their Ephesians 6 armour. There are three volumes and having read them i now plan to go and reread them. Such a find and such a contrast to the wishy washy rubbish churned up by current 'theologians'. If you are serious for Jesus Christ and his Kingdom i recommend this book.
Ephesians 6 vs 12.

Mere words connot describe the strength and power the true believer recieves once the words in this book are combined with prayer. It is honestly magnificent. Within the pages of this book you will find a treasure of a priceless nature, true spiritual warfare may be slightly taboo, but in this age of global awareness and conscience we find ourselves in a multi demensional enviroment that we may lose our souls in, without even being aware of it. Here the truth is exposed, and the tools which are needed to fight this battle are provided.
I have no doubt that through prayer (a simple sincere conversation with God).God's hand will work with this book and change your life as he has mine. Colours have never been so beatiful, love and life have never flowed as abundantly. May his force be with you in your journey, remember ask and you shall reieve. His mercy is infinite, and his love is greater than we can possibly hope to comprehend.
Buy this book, you will never regret it, only to buy more to give to those who you love and care about.
One God, One love, One hope.
"A War between Saint and Satan. And it is such a bloody one that the cruellest war ever fought by men will be seen as but sport and child's play compared to this. It is a spiritual war that you shall read of; not a history of what was fought many ages past and is now over, but of a war now going on-the tragedy is presant with us. And it is not taking place at the farthest ends of the world; it concerns you and everyone who reads of it. The stage on which this war is fought is every man's own soul. There are no neutrals in this war. The whole world is engaged in the quarrel, either for God against Satan, or for Satan against God."
An excerpt from the authors original forward written in 1655 by William Gurnall.

The Christian path is incredibly tough. If you really know what it means to be on God's team, you'll understand that staying on it is an uphill struggle. I bought this book ten years ago and failed to actually pick it up and read it. I was a fool for ignoring it for so long.

If you want or more to the point if you need (and we do all need), the tough, no nonsence guide to sticking to God like glue and how to bat for his team effectively, how to understand and deal with all those underhand tricks the devil is always pushing upon us. If you want strength and support and a reminder about why you're a Christian, why reading the bible is so important and how to get the most from being with God, please, please get this book. I am certain you won't regret it.

Format: Paperback
This is the modernized version published by Banner of Truth of an all time Puritan classic (certainly known to Christian, if not Atheistic) readers. If you are unfamiliar with the Puritans you will find it a great place to start enjoying the biblical riches of their writing.

Although marketed as an abridgement, most of the content has been retained and the modernization is really very good. Gurnall's writing is certainly on the lively end and, like Thomas Watson, he is full of illustrations as he meditates on Ephesians 6:10-18. There are helpful headings and subheadings to guide you through the contents. He works through each of the pieces of armour in turn to consider what it means for the Christian. It is probably best digested in modest chunks given how much there is here to think about. You will be directed to Christ, warned of Satan's tactics to deceive both believers and unbelievers, and challenged to consider whether a life without Christ makes sense.

Volume 2 covers the soldier's belt of sincerity and his shoe of peace.

This version was produced under the auspices of David Wilkerson who had been greatly encouraged by the original and wanted to make it more widely accessible. It is published in three volumes and the cover has been revamped relatively recently.

All time great book on the needs of every Christian - and anyone else who is interested in good advise for living. Like a works manual. Best read regularly in short sections to allow Biblical understanding to "settle" and become "natural" in the individual.

William Gurnall's Puritan classic is excellent. My disappointment with this version is that there is no helpful "table of contents". Most Christian Classics without a TOC format are £0.77. Therefore, can I recommend that you look for a cheaper alternative.

I have read many books on the "Armor of God", but "The Christian in Complete Armor" by William Gurnall is the most eBiblically founded and has the greatest depth of spiritual understanding of any I have read. I highly recommend this book for the Spiritually minded person.
