This is a wonderful little book that deals with that daily battle against Satan, the enemy of our souls. John Brown was a faithful preacherof God’s word who ministered in Scotland the first part of the 19th century. Whilst in Edinburgh he expounded all of 1 Peter. This took 16 years.
This book is an extract from the published version of those sermons covering 1 Peter 5: 8-11. The book is divided into three chapters covering: the Christian’s great enemy, the Christian’s duty with reference to his great enemy, and the Christian’s encouragement to perform that duty. It is a model of clear and uncluttered communication. There are easy to follow divisions and subdivisions. Brown explains God’s word in a straightforward way applying it to our daily walk. I particularly liked his explanation of the meaning of the promises the Lord makes to Christians in verse 10.
I cannot think of a more helpful small book on the subject of spiritual warfare.
