Spiritual Warfare and the Care of Souls

Jesus Christ is the light that no darkness can overcome.

Spiritual warfare isn’t always obvious. It’s normally not scary or spooky; it’s usually rather mundane. Yet it’s real and always miraculous.

In Spiritual Warfare, Harold Ristau shows how faithful spiritual warfare isn’t about secret methods and rituals. Rather, for the care of souls, pastors already have all they need in God’s word. The Spirit’s gifts equip Christians for whatever challenges await them in ministry—even fighting against the wiles of the devil. Spiritual Warfare helps pastors inform, prepare, and equip the saints for the battle. The good fight is fought in prayer and worship. As the church preaches the forgiveness of sins, the darkness is pierced with the light of Christ and those in bondage are freed.

Praise for Spiritual Warfare

Drawing on the Scriptures as God’s word, the wisdom of the church, and his own pastoral experience, Ristau equips readers to discern the works of the devil clearly in the church and the world and encourages them to counter his ways confidently with the resources that Christ himself supplies.

–John W. Kleinig, emeritus lecturer, Australian Lutheran College

A tremendous spur to pondering and meditation, confession and thanksgiving, and living our daily lives in simple reliance on the invincible power of God.

–Michael A. G. Haykin, chair and professor of church history, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
