Elizabeth, I recommend EIGHT WAYS TO KEEP THE DEVIL UNDER YOUR FEET by Joyce Meyer. I also have a couple in my TBR pile that seems to be good ones  although I haven't read them yet. They are:

THE BELIEVER'S GUIDE TO SPIRITUAL WARFARE by Thomas B. White

A WOMAN'S GUIDE TO SPIRITUAL WARFARE by Quin Sherrer & Ruthanne Garlock

I second Diane on A WOMAN'S GUIDE TO SPIRITUAL WARFARE by Quin Sherrer & Ruthanne Garlock!!

This is one of the best books that I have ever read on the subject!! I have read another book by them that was just as good.

Also The Three Warfares by John Arcovio is really good, but may be harder to find.

I have a question about the Woman's Guide To Spiritual Warfare book - reading the description of it on Amazon, it sounds like it is geared toward women with families - "fighting for the health of your marriage", dealing with issues with your children, etc.   Is there enough in this book that would be relevant to a single, childless woman?

Chandra could answer that better than me since she has already read THE WOMAN'S GUIDE TO SPIRITUAL WARFARE. Yes, I think it is geared to woman with a husband and children but it appears to have basic information that a single woman or anyone else for that matter could use. Here is the titles of the chapters:

BUT I NEVER WANTED TO BE IN A BATTLE

WHO IS THE ENEMY AND WHAT DOES HE WANT FROM ME?

WHAT OUR SPIRITUAL WARDROBE SHOULD  LOOK LIKE

HOW STRONG CAN A WOMAN BE?

THE DISCIPLINES OF A SPIRIT-EMPOWERED WOMAN

OUR WEAPONS AND STRATEGY

AN OPEN DOOR TO THE ENEMY

BREAKING BONDAGES

FIGHT FOR YOUR CHILDREN

FIGHT FOR YOUR MARRIAGE

SPIRITUAL HEALING AND WARFARE

HOW CAN I TELL IF I'M UNDER ATTACK?

LESSONS FROM THE FIELD

 

Hope this will help.

I have a big fat one called The Handbook For Spiritual Warfare by Dr. Ed Murphy.  Also enjoyed The Bondage Breaker by Neil T. Anderson.
