The Evil Tree in Man by Uyobong Etuk

This is a good book on spiritual warfare. Etuk uses the analogy of a tree to explore the strategies and tactics Satan employs. He goes back to the Fall of man to show how the tree was implanted then and is passed down to all mankind in our DNA. Satan uses the energy of man to nourish the tree.

I like that Etuk emphasizes the battlefield of the mind. The devil promotes insecurity, inferiority and rebellion, concepts Etuk represents by parts of the tree. Even the branches represent our tendency to sin. We have a choice. It is up to us to resist the influence, the growth of the tree. “The key to your complete victory or defeat lies in your hands – control your mind! Feed it with the word of God constantly.” (13) He gives some practical steps to cutting out the evil tree and replacing it with a tree producing good fruit.

This is a good book for Christians to gain insight into Satan's techniques. It is especially good for Christians who are not very familiar with spiritual warfare. Each chapter contains a recap of the information contained, further Scriptures to read, questions to journal or discuss, and a written prayer. The book could be used by an individual or in a group study.

My rating: 4/5 stars.

Uyobong Etuk, B.Sc., is the supervising pastor of The Redeemed Christian Church of God Dominion Chapel Panama, and a counselor in the healing and deliverance ministry. From an early age he answered the call of God to equip and encourage people in their walk with God. He is a living testimony of God's power, and often receives inspiration, visions and revelations from the Almighty. You can find out more at .

I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the author. My comments are an independent and honest review.
