If I could read only one book besides the Bible, this would be it. This book lays a foundation for our faith, victory, and our walk with the Lord. Unlike anything I have ever read before. The understanding he portrays of what God, Christ, Satan, the Bride, prayer and praise all mean to us will change your life. We will not have to walk in defeat, depression, or despair ever again, if we can get the message of this book into our spirit. My review could never do this wonderful work justice. Read it for yourself, you will be highly blessed.
The most extraordinary book I've ever read outside the Bible. It has passed Thomas A. Kempis' "Imitation of Christ" and Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost For His Highest" on my list. It is so 'meaty', you cannot just read it through, but must pray over every section til it becomes a part of you. Simply lifesaving! Wonderful!
Finally! - purpose in prayer beyond ourselves!Billiheimer's book will stand along side those other great classics on prayer written by the likes of Andrew Murray, E.M. Bounds, and Norman Grubb.For individual devotion or congregational study, this book will challenge typical Christian thinking, enlarge small worldviews and propel the believer into enthusiastic and faithfilled intercession.
To me, this is a must teaching book for all serious Christians. A book on prayer, spiritual warfare and exercising our faith in a God who loves us.For Christians, the ultimate goal is to be the Bride of Christ. To do this, as with all those who are awaiting their bridegroom, we must prepare ourselves. This book helps you to do that, teaching in a clear understanding way, what is required of Jesus' church, His bride and how to obtain that goal.This bookwill not disappoint you, I promise!Highly recommended! A must read for Christians that take their walk serious!
In the preface of the book the author states, "The author feels that many of the insights were given him by the personal ministry of the Holy Spirit through the Word." ...to this I could not agree more. Outside of the Bible, this was one of the most enlightening books (if not the most) I have ever read concerning SO MANY vital aspects of a Christian's walk with God. In a nutshell, the author shows the significance of Christians as the Bride of Christ and the victory that they and/or the church have been given over the enemy due to Jesus' death and resurrection. As well, he vividly and Biblically shows the power of prayer and praise in ways I had never considered. There are so many "gold nuggets" in this book!! I really can't say enough about it. It is very deep and PROFOUND but yet easy to understand. You must read it and I am confident you WILL be changed.
This is one of the books that will inspire and challenge a life. I was able to understand why the enemy doesn't want people to pray.It is almost unbelievable, but the author authentically demonstarated from the Scripture the heritage we have with God--a heritage that not even the angels have. No wonder the fallen angels are resolved to sabotage this heritage.This book is a must read for every Christian, especially because prayer is not optional. And how beneficial it is to know why we can't afford prayerlessness!
I am greatly impressed with this author and his insight into the word of GOD. I feel this is an extremely important book for the Body of Christ. The author through voluminous scripture and passion writes of the necessity of the Bride of Christ to take up the mantel given to us by JESUS to be JESUS on earth. The author paints an incredible picture of the Father waiting for the Church to take the authority she rightly has to Ask so as to be given and to put the Devil to flight. This book may have one flaw and that might be(I say this because I do not know the authors mindset) and that is Christ suffering in Hell and suffering spiritual death. With this said it is not the salient of the book. The other points and underlying theme of the book are undoubtably Truth and need to be heeded by the Bride of Christ if we are to make an impact on this world for JESUS. Much more can be said of this book but BUY it should suffice. GOD bless and be blessed. JB
This is a very comprehensive book for being so compact. It unfolds a lot of foundational concepts that we take for granted and even teaches a few that may be new to some people.However, I will say that this author carries a theme throughout the book that I disagree with. Billheimer basically asserts that the reason we are to perform spiritual warfare prayer here on earth is to "train us" for that work in heaven. He says on page 39, "[Prayer] is God's way of giving the Church on-the-job training in overcoming the forces hostile to God. ... What foes will be left to overcome in the eternal ages, we do not know." I disagree wholeheartedly with that because when we are in heaven, we won't have any evil to fight against. So why would we be "in training" for spiritual warfare in heaven? It makes no sense at all. I personally believe that prayer and spiritual warfare on earth is done in order to populate heaven and glorify God. As far as "training" is concerned, I think Billheimer would have better served if he had used the word, "sanctification." Prayer and spiritual warfare increases our faith, draws us near to God and makes us more like Christ because He is in constant intercession. God is looking for a bride for His Son and she is being groomed before that wedding. This much is true. But training for warfare in heaven? I think Mr. B. needs to re-read his bible.
