Battles from the Old Testament

Digby WilliamsSKU: BOT7711 ISBN: 9781846257711



The Battles of the Old Testament provide vital spiritual principles for our lives
as Christians. As we study the conflicts faced by the children of Israel, we find
that their victories were not dependent on military might or superior
weaponry, but on their faithfulness and trust in God. In many ways it was their
prayerful diligence that brought them success on the battlefield. Believers
today are engaged in a spiritual warfare where trust and faithfulness to God’s
Word are vital principles in their victory over the powers of darkness
(Eph. 6:12).
‘For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities,
against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,
against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.’
These brief studies on the Battles of the Old Testament do not include
topographical details, maps, or photographs of where the battles took place.
Instead, the book focuses upon God’s timely interventions, and His love for a
people who were often disobedient and quick to forget how He had acted to
save them from destruction. Each battle has points of application and
reflection for the reader. Included in this book are vital lessons that had to be learnt by God’s people – and still need to be learned by his people today!

Very interesting reading

Clearly a lot of research has gone into making this book. Interesting, thought provoking and the personal reflection summary at the end of each battle puts the whole message in context for today.

Good short bible studies

The book is easy to read with short studies of the many battles fought. Interesting, straight forward and compelling each is well applied to the New Testament or directly to the doctrine of faith. A little short for groups unless two or three are taken together, which could easily be done. I have used it for something to go to sleep on at night.
