An oldie but a goodie! This book, written around 400 years ago, details the ways to defend oneself from the schemes Satan uses to tear Christians away from the foot of the cross. Drawing from the scripture quoted below, Thomas Brooks guides the believer through the remedies they may practically employ to protect themselves and their way of thinking.

“in order that Satan should not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.” 

2 Corinthians 2:11

“[I]t is not hasty reading–but serious meditating upon holy and heavenly truths, that make them prove sweet and profitable to the soul. It is not the bee’s touching of the flower, which gathers honey–but her abiding for a time upon the flower, which draws out the sweet. It is not he who reads most–but he who meditates most, who will prove the choicest, sweetest, wisest and strongest Christian.”

You can buy the book here (extremely cheap!) and likely find it online in pdf form for free. WELL WORTH THE READ! Especially if you are considering taking the One Year Challenge. Satan will certainly oppose any who who would attempt great things for God in going on mission, it is our job to put on the armor that God has provided!
