At a time in England when loyalty to Scripture placed Christians in the center of the nation's wars, Gurnall was more concerned with the souls of his people than the issues of conflicting political parties. Compiled from his many sermons on "the saints' war against the devil," his exhaustive exposition of Ephesians treats the spiritual battles of believers and their God-given protection. Originally written in three volumes , the book first covers the Christian's call to arms and describes the nature of the battle and the character of our enemy. The various pieces of godly armor and weapons, and their use on offense and defense, are then described at length, item by item and verse by verse. More pastoral and practical than theological, Gurnall's work is filled with spiritual insight, encouraging exhortation, and inspiring word pictures concerning the importance of doctrinal truth as "a girdle for the mind," the power of holiness, the "pre-eminence of faith against other graces," and much more.

It took me so long to read it the first time as I would re-read a chapter times before moving on. A wealth of Biblical insight. I highly recommend this book. Jyoti Chakravartty — May 30, I strongly recommend this book, the three volume abridged version is quite understandable.
Charles C. It was exqisite in form as much as content. Matt C — January 6, Perhaps the greatest book ever produced on the topic of spiritual warfare is The Christian in Complete Armour by William Gurnall. This book unabridged version is published by the Banner of Truth. This unabridged version consists of two volumes that total well over 1, pages. Have you recently read any books over 1, pages that were based upon 11 verses of Scripture? The content of this book is simply amazing!
Gurnall encourages, warns, teaches, admonishes, helps, and instructs the believer in how to mortify kill sin and how to flee from the enemy and his attacks. Volume one consists of a biographical sketch of Gurnall, written by J.
Ryle prior to getting into the exposition of Ephesians 6. Gurnall is absolutely masterful in his exegesis and application of Ephesians 6 to the Christian life. Ryle adds a very nice touch. I think a single column would have provided a nicer reading experience. I highly recommend this book to every Christian!
