I have read numerous Derek Prince books and this one I highly recommend.
He gives real life examples of dealing with demonic forces and a step-by-step process on how to combat these forces. This is a must have in your book collection.
I will buy more books by Derek Prince
Derek Prince is so scholarly that you know if he said it then you can believe it won't be due to sensationalism or over-zealousness. Well written with scripture references throughout which is extremely important.
Both Good information, and bad information
This book has both good information and bad information in it. I love the fact that he catagorizes the way in which demons work in an individuals life, and he does a nice job of explaining the various methods that demons use to gain access in an individuals life. However, I disagree that every bad behavior that a person has is some how devil-spirit (demon) influenced. Some bad behavior is just that, "Bad Behavior." Another huge issue I have with this book is concerning Water Baptism. Mr. Prince states, "Baptism in water is not an option-some ecclesiastical ceremony that follows salvation. On the contrary, it is an outward act of obedience expressing the inward work of faith in our hearts, and thus making salvation complete." Mr. Prince further states, "But we are separated from the world by passing through the water of baptism. It is the act of being baptized that cuts us off from the kingdom of satan. His demons have no right to follow us through the water." What? What about what Jesus said in Acts 1:5 "For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence." What about Romans 10:9-10? Mr. Prince doesn't come right out and say it, but he implies that salvation is tied to water baptism. This I totally disagree with. There are many christians that are pro baptism that use Acts 10:47 as the reason water baptism is still needed today. But remember what Peter stated in Acts 11:16 when commenting on this same issue (when Cornelius and his house were saved), Peter said the following, Acts 11:16 "Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said,'John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.'"
Don't get me wrong, I don't care if anyone gets water baptized. My point is that Mr. Prince uses it as a scare tactic. He implies that if you don't get baptized in water the devil has all the access he wants to your life. This promotes fear (remember there is no fear in love 1 John 4:18). The strong points of this book are very strong. I like the aspects of the book that deal directly with demons and their devices. This book is good for that (one of the best I've seen). However, I would NOT SUGGEST THIS BOOK FOR NEW CHRISTIANS. There are a lot of things in here that will do nothing but promote fear in your life if your not strong in your faith, and that will distract you from God if you are not well established in your word of God. However, I would recommend this book to those who are already well established in Gods word. There is a great depth of knowledge concerning demons and their devices that you can learn from. Just make sure you cut between truth and error very carefully.
