Spiritual Warfare Bible – Review

IMG_5479

The Spiritual Warfare Bible from Charisma House is an NKJV devotional Bible to help strengthen and prepare readers for spiritual battle. It contains articles and prayers, and even includes some inductive study materials for both personal and group study.

Physical Aspects

This is a glued hard cover edition. It’s black letter with a 9-point font with plenty of space between the lines. The text is two-column paragraph format with large, semi bold verse numbers that are easy to find. The headings, chapter numbers, and article titles are printed in an orange font that stands apart nicely. The standard Nelson NKJV references and notes are located at the bottom of the page. The references and notes are keyed with letters and numbers. The paper is thin. It’s not very opaque, but it is within what is expected in a study Bible of this price-point. In the back there is a 78-page concordance with three columns per page, and 8 pages of maps.

I found it easy to read and use. The print consistency is good throughout. It does have more show-through than I like. The tools are easy to use and very helpful. The concordance is the standard NKJV concordance from Nelson. The maps are colorful, but for me they’re too bright. They do have some good archaeological information such as pictures of coins and tablets.

Devotional Aspects

At its core, I would call this a devotional Bible. The focus is of course on Spiritual Warfare, so all of the articles, prayers, and study material are written with this in view. The materials are primarily excerpts from other materials by the publisher.

There are book introductions that are titled The Holy Spirit’s Word in (book title). This is about a half a page and talks about the primary situations that those in the book faced and how God helped them through it.

There are 250 Spiritual Warfare Declarations throughout the text. These are one-sentence statements or prayers that include a Scripture reference.

There are 220 Spiritual Warfare Basics. These are about a column long and include tips for spiritual warfare. They are located close to the topic that they correspond to.

There are 21 character profiles called Lessons from God’s Warriors. They talk about someone that was anointed for spiritual warfare and lessons from their experience.

There are several Spiritual Warfare Prayers throughout the Bible to help you in various situations that you might face.

Sharpening Your Sword are studies throughout the Bible that you can use to dig deeper into the topics. They give you questions to answer and a place to write your answers. These are great for personal and group study.

Preparing for Spiritual Warfare Articles are 1-2 page long focus articles for each book that focus on a specific passage. They are great for digging deeper into the topics and for building your faith.

There are several articles in the front and the back appendixes that include:

  • How to Study the Bible
  • Putting Spiritual Discernment Back Into Spiritual Warfare
  • Induction into the Army of God
  • Spiritual Warfare in the Bible
  • End-Time Misconceptions About Spiritual Warfare
  • Spiritual Warfare Distinctives
  • Freedom Principles for Daily Use
  • Combat Scriptures to Defeat Our Enemy
  • Living a Triumphant Hope

It is this devotional material that sets this Bible apart from the rest. The primary focus on these tools is application. Rather than give you commentary on verses or passages, the articles give you tools for personal growth. Most of the time we tend to think about the physical – what we see and touch. But we are in a daily spiritual battle. The articles and studies are great for getting you thinking deeper about the things of the spirit. Just keep in mind that there is some theological bias. In my opinion it doesn’t diminish the quality of the teachings. Just be aware of it and do your own study.

Charisma House provided this Bible free for review. I was not required to give a positive review – only an honest review.

    I love this Bible so very much. I’ve bought 6 of them so far. My mom was blind & as children we weren’t allowed to touch the family Bible which laid on the coffee table. No it was much too Sacred for our little hands. We might tare it or write in it. I never had a Bible of my own until I was practically a teenager. So now in my 70’s I’m a Bible marker. I go through & mark special verses. And tell stories about them. I was wanting to know how I might buy directly through y’all because I buy one & it takes me 3 months to mark it & tell my stories. Then I give them away. It’s my own Bible Ministry. Although when it started I argued with the Lord for what seemed like 6 months before I gave my Old Faithful Bible to my nephew. The Lord kept prompting me to do it & because my sister his mom was giving him her old Bible I told the Lord No Lord don’t make me give him my Bible & spoil her Blessing. But when I gave it to him it helped him through a divorce. Him & his wife both asked for Aunt Carolyn’s Bible because of something I’d marked in it. Maybe you could send me something telling how many Spiritual Warfare Bibles I can buy. If I will be able to buy them directly from you. Thank you so much.bI sure wish y’all could reprint this Bible again. We have such a hard time finding anything on Spiritual Warfare. The enemy is even trying to steal it from our churches. God Bless & Go With You Always. Exodus 33:14-17
