If you need to be inspired in a time of trial, then Kyle Winkler's new book is perfect for you. Silence Satan by Kyle Winkler is worth reading multiple times in order to empower the reader when confronting personal crisis and trials. Not many believers understand the concept of a literal Satan and the Holy Spirit and that we are all called to fight against the devil, our Enemy. The author presents scriptural background and bible passages from the old and new testaments to share with the reader that each of us is called to resist and fight against the devil with the power of the Holy Spirit. The authors explains this is one of the privileges all believers have at their disposal.
Winkler shares with the reader personal and intimate stories of his own experiences. His honesty gives the reader support and adds credibility to his words. It is as if the reader is speaking one on one with the author. Winkler is uniquely gifted in reaching out to distressed and alienated readers. The reader can relate to the author's painful experiences with guilt and shame. Kyle Winkler does not hold back- he is forthcoming and brutally honest. Who would not trust him? How many readers will relate to the devil's torments and lies to "shut it down" and give up.
The main focus on the book is to show the reader more information- about Satan in general as well as to expose the works and deceptions of the devil as well. The author talks about the devil's tactics and playbook in attacking believers and throwing them off course in life. I can not convey into words, the significance this book had for me during a difficult time in my life. This book is like a lifeline- easy to understand words of wisdom and insight. You will put this book down feeeling refreshed.
Much of the book is an invaluable resource where the authors have taken scriptural truths and promises- and relate them to the modern day believer to use and apply when facing any trial or work from the enemy. The scriptural references will empower any reader with a quick resource of how to respond in faith to any difficulty- large and small. It is a spiritual self help book in the fact that it will allow the reader the tools to look within himself and identify any areas or issues where Satan has his foothold. Not only that it tells the reader how to face and address these issues! For those who are at a loss of how to begin to approach their spiritual problems there are a number of sample prayers applicable to any number of situations. As a blogger for the Booketeria I received this book published by Passio for the purpose of writing this review.
