Insightful insepction of the overlooked enemy - our own Sin,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Enemy Within, Straight Talk About the Power and Defeat of Sin (Paperback)
The christian has three enemies. The world, the devil, and the flesh(our sinful desire). Too often we recieve teaching that completely leaves out our flesh. Such omission brings unrealistic expectations and methods in the struggle to put to death daily the flesh.
Kris draws on Owens in an easy to follow literary style. The questions at the end of each chapter make the book suitable for daily or semi-daily devotion. In fact the real impact of the book is in putting the ideas into practice. This requires the work of God in the heart through prayer and scripture. Kris is helpful in leading us to this work of faith in our lives.
The book spends much time dealing with the enemy, so it would be of benifit to read quickly through the book in one or two sittings to get a feel for where all of this talk about the flesh is leading in terms of Christ the victor. Otherwise you might find yourslef talking for weeks about sin is this and sin is this and what are we supposed to do about it anyway?... -chip
