BOOK YOU MUST READ: Victory Over the Darkness: Realizing the Power of Your Identity in Christ
Ten years ago a breakthrough book launched a ministry that has helped more than one million people overcome this world and win the battle for their hearts and minds. Now Neil Anderson has revised and expanded Victory over the Darkness for a new generation of readers, outlining practical and more productive ways to Christian growth based on Christ’s promise, You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. Victory Over the Darkness emphasizes the importance of believing and internalizing the cardinal truths of Scripture as a base from which to renew the mind and fend off the attempts of Satan to convince us that we are less than Christ empowers us to be.
Countless people have found genuine freedom in Christ through the insights God has given Neil Anderson. Among them is my oldest son.

Reading Victory Over the Darkness has been the catalyst for numerous people on the journey of spiritual freedom in Christ. As part of our core curriculum studies, we encourage every new member of our church to complete Dr. Anderson’s Steps to Freedom in Christ. It is the book we offer to every person who desires spiritual counseling. I have seen the hope it brings for those who thought there was no hope for their lives. Even more amazing, I know the man behind the book, and he lives the life he proclaims.

Of the many things I appreciate about Neil Anderson’s ministry, his commitment to God’s Word tops my list. Neil goes to God’s Word to demonstrate that resolution in life is found in the Word of life because it points us to the Lord of life.

Neil Anderson touches a nerve of vital need in the Body of Christ! His ministry in the arena of spiritual growth is sound-minded, trustworthy and—best of all—Christ-centered and Bible-based. I recommend him and his work.

Victory Over the Darkness was released at a time in my life when I desperately needed its message. I didn’t know how to fight back, and I didn’t know the authority I had in knowing who I was in Christ. This book profoundly impacted my awareness of spiritual warfare and helped me see things as they really are. I am forever grateful for this gift because it changed my life. I’ve given it away more times than I can count. Read it, and you’ll be doing the same thing.

Dr. Neil Anderson has done a masterful job of taking a rather complex truth and making it plain enough for all to understand and practical enough for all to experience. The principles in Victory Over the Darkness have helped us to disciple both old and new believers in our church. As a result, lives are being transformed by the power of God. Gerald Martin Pastor, Cornerstone Church and Ministries, Harrisonburg, Virginia When we first met Neil Anderson, we were impacted most by his pastors’ heart. He loves God, and he loves people. We’ve often laughed with one another and jokingly said that Neil says more over lunch than most pastors do in the sermons they spend a week preparing. He trained our intercessors in discipleship counseling, and they still experience the power of God when they walk people through the Steps to Freedom in Christ. Neil’s teaching on spiritual warfare is biblically sound, powerful and practical.

Victory Over the Darkness is a much-needed book written for everyone who longs for spiritual growth and, even more, joyous spiritual victory in a dark world.

In Lombardi-like fashion, Neil Anderson has entered our locker room and re-introduced our “football,” reminding us of the power found in the fundamentals of our faith. Thank you, Neil, for pointing us toward God’s Word and the security and significance that is ours in Christ.

When it seemed America was suffering addiction more than ever before, God raised up Neil Anderson to write Victory Over the Darkness to help people to walk through the steps to victory over addiction. I have used Neil’s steps to victory in my teaching at Liberty University, and I have outlined his Steps to Freedom in Christ in my writings. Praise God for the contribution of Neil Anderson to the Christian church and for the contribution of this awesome book.

This book is as relevant today as when it was first released. New readers will find life-transforming insights and practical guidance on every page. It is still the first book I recommend to those who need to be grounded in their identity in Christ.
