Spiritual Warfare And Discernment of Spirits

Hey, Everyone!

Just concluded a wonderful two day retreat and when I returned home to checked email tonight, was super excited to see the following…

The new book is by Dan Burke, founder of Spiritualdirection.com as well as the Avila Institute, and author of Journey to God and Into the Deep.

The description of the book from the Amazon sales page states:

“With this book as your guide, you’ll grow in strength and contentment as you learn:

How to take captive every negative thought and make it obedient to Christ

St. Ignatius’s revelations exposing how the Devil seeks to influence us

The Paradigm of Ascent and the Five Steps to Sanctity

The three ways you can discern Good Spirits from Bad Spirits

The three principal causes of desolation and what you must do when it afflicts your soul


Proven methods for moving away from sin and toward self-giving love of God and neighbor.”

Both of Dan’s previous books have been excellent help for the spiritual journey, so I have no doubt that this one will be the same.

I have already ordered my copy, and would highly encourage you to do the same as well.

(But if you want wait for my formal review, look for it next week!)
