“Our contemporary culture, saturated by scientific rationalism, frequently tends to ignore the reality of the powers of evil and darkness. This Puritan classic takes Ephesians 6:12 seriously and teaches that battle with the devil still rages today. Isaac Ambrose’s small but dynamic, packed treatise offers readers practical directions and helpful spiritual disciplines to face the temptations of the world, the flesh, and the devil. Most importantly, The Christian Warrior will help you cling to Jesus as your only reliable defense.”
