Dr. Wiersbe zeroes in on Satan's attacks as deceiver, destroyer, ruler, and accuser. By understanding the tactics of the enemy, one can be better prepared to detect and withstand the attacks of Satan. The Strategy of Satan outlines a system to defend oneself on the spiritual battleground--by the power of the Holy Spirit--in order to live by faith in God. Wiersbe emphasizes that conquering the enemy comes by obeying God's truth.

In this book, Wiersbe writes about spiritual warfare. He declares that this book is not for the average consumer, but rather for those engaged or to be engaged in spiritual warfare. This book is, in essence, the "field manual" for such individuals.
This book is about Satan and, well, his strategy. In this book, readers (or in this case, listeners) will learn how the devil works and his schemes, and how to defend themselves and others. This book is not a devotion in any manner, but the typical war book that troops would use in battle. It includes the fundamentals of spiritual warfare.
In essence, Wiersbe argues that the steps to fall out of G-d's design are to first remove His word, then add to it, then change it, then view the part of Scripture that's been edited apart form G-d's word. G-d is about truth, unedited. Satan is about lies, filtered and censored.
Geoffrey's voice is authentic in nature, emulating the author's intended voice. Deep and gruff, as well as clearly read, the audio is easy to listen to and understand. It is a good, solid narration, and I was very pleased listening to his work.
While this book is for a niche group by written design, the narration opens this book up to a wider audience, but challenges Wiersbe's warning on the front page: he asks readers and listeners to not be distracted while learning what he has to say, and attributes distractions to the enemy. Heavy on charismatic beliefs, light on humor, Wiersbe's work is for the dedicated Christian who is not interested in entertainment.

- Informative Book For Christian Living
The Strategy of Satan by Warren Wiersbe is a very informative book for Christian living and in particular dealing with the attacks from Satan. Although this book was written over 30 years ago much of the content is still true for today. I found it a little hard to get through but the keys of counteracting Satan's strategies were quite helpful and I intend to put them to good use.
The book discusses the many ways that believers can give Satan access to work in their lives and ways to prevent this from helping. It addresses such issues as recognising deception, pride and ensuring that content of services is based on the Bible not cultural influences. It is a comprehensive book although it is quite short.
The narration I found a bit difficult to listen to at times but I am not sure why. It is still quite good but I have heard better narrators.
Overall this book is a useful aid in determining Satan’s avenues of attack with helpful solutions to counter his attacks.

- Great Book
The Strategy of Satan by Warren Wiersbe was short, to the point, and easy to listen to. The books talks about areas in your life that Satan targets, such as your mind, will, and body. He discusses weapons Satan uses, such as lies, suffering, pride, and guilt. He uses scripture throughout to back up everything he writes about. He gives examples of ways to defend yourself against Satan’s attack, such as renewing your mind with the word of God, walking in the Spirit, and trusting in the grace of God to cover your sin. This book was pretty basic and if you are looking for an extensive book on the topic, this book isn’t it. I can’t say that I learned anything new, but I was encouraged the entire time I listened to this audio book. While some reviewers have complained about how often he quotes scripture, I felt this was a strength of the book.
