Years ago, while planting a church in Spain, a friend and I took some time off to swim in the Mediterranean. We drove for miles up and down the winding, mountainous coast until we spotted a beautiful, private cove. The aqua-blue water, from a distance, looked spectacular. My friend ran down the trail, arrived at the water and dove in. Seconds later, he let out a scream, “Don’t come in the water,” he hollered. “It’s polluted@” He had unfortunately discovered, first-hand, that under the surface lurked all kinds of garbage that had washed into the cove. The pristine waters had been spoiled.
My friend, many believers remind me of that experience. On the surface they seem to be ‘sparkling clean’ while underneath lurks the torment of oppressive demonic forces. They seem to be struggling with the same issues over and over again. Many have become masters at covering up the problem, while what they need is deliverance from the problem.
Bill Sudduth has written a practical manual on how to deal with these recurring, oppressive troubles. This book was born out of a desire to see everyone live in complete victory and fulfill God’s purpose for their lives. The rewards of following this manual far exceed the demands.
