"Safe and Sound" by David Powlison

My review...

The book is a detailed look into spiritual warfare, and it focuses on Ephesians 6. Powlison gives the reader a solid idea of what spiritual warfare is before providing application for different situations counselors may encounter.

Powlison's final book is divided into nine chapters, with Ephesians 6:10-20 the basis. Three beginning chapters explain the basic nature and weaponry of spiritual warfare. The remaining chapters focus on counseling those in need.

I had different expectations going into this book than what I actually found. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but I was a bit surprised to find that the target audience is counselors. I thought the applications could still be used and applied by the average reader wanting to get a better understanding of handling spiritual warfare, but I didn't really find that to be the case. This is definitely geared for pastors, counselors, or other spiritual leaders. Other readers may find the information overwhelming. However, there are some personal examples that make it a bit less academic.
