Christian men today are unprepared for the reality and scope of spiritual warfare they face. Some go about their lives naively ignoring the power that spiritual forces like sin and Satan have in their lives. Joe Barnard has written a book to help men not only wake up to the existence of sin in their lives, but, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to tackle it head on.


This may seem like a daunting task. Although few would admit it publicly, privately many share the deep anxiety that the resources of the gospel are inadequate to deal with – not the guilt of sin – but the power of sin. Sin may look like an insurmountable problem when measured by the stature of a fallen man, but to God, sin is no more than a weed planted in sand.


This book is for men who are willing to fight and it will arm them for the task at hand.

… an acute guide to self–diagnosis and critically, sound measures by which to dispense with besetting sin and gain genuine spiritual health. This is a book for men who are fed up with therapeutic fluff and now want to walk the walk.

David Lyle Jeffrey, Distinguished Senior Fellow, Baylor Institute for Studies in Religion & Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Literature and the Humanities, Baylor University, Waco, Texas

… maintains that only God saves humanity from the clutches of sin yet perfectly explains how we play a role in waging war with the sin that never stops raging against us. I would highly recommend this book for anyone in a present battle with sin — and that’s pretty much everyone.

Vince Miller, President, Resolute Men’s Ministry and Bible Studies
