How would you like to fight an enemy who, just as you have him on the ropes, always evades the final blow? An enemy who hides just out of reach, lulling you into a fall sense of security, until he drops from nowhere onto your back?
That's the advantage of indwelling sin—it lurks in an unsearchable fortress where you can't get to it. But if God has redeemed us from sin—and given us his Holy Spirit to sanctify us and give us strength against sin—why do we go on sinning?
Drawing from two masterful works by English theologian John Owen, Kris Lundgaard takes aim at the enemy within. He shares his discovery of hope, renewed love for Christ, an approach to holiness by faith in him.
". . . fresh, contemporary, highly readable. Every Christian who is serious about holiness should read this book."
"Kris Lundgaard has done the impossible. He has given us some of the best of Puritan theology in a language all of us can understand. . . . will challenge you to radical spiritual transformation!"
—Richard L. Pratt, Jr.
". . . a solid reminder that apart from the grace of God we are far weaker than we can imagine—but greater is he that is in us than he that is in the world."
"Kris Lundgaard has given us a delightful book. It is honest, real, and, best of all, hopeful."
Worth More than the Price
This has been a long-time favorite Christian book of mine. I'm so glad to see it's now in the iBooks store.
I can say one thing: It's worth more than the price listed here! Buying it was a no-brainer.
The Enemy Within Review
The Enemy Within is an excellent book for anyone seeking to arm themselves with weapons against sin. With modern examples and clear descriptions, The Enemy Within helps the reader wrestle with the power of sin, understand sin's powerful root system, grasps the bend of human nature to default to sin's tactics, and arm themselves with battle plans to overcome sin's powerful grip. Taking heart to the things written, and applying the basic strategies of The Enemy Within will bode well for those striving to follow Christ.
The enemy within
Every believer battles against the flesh. All too often we experience defeat not victory. This text is another work that enables us too see the truth from Scripture and empowers us through the Spirit to be successful and know victory.
