The Whole Armour of God

The Whole Armour of God: How Christ’s victory strengthens us for spiritual warfare
Iain M. Duguid
Crossway, 2019

Iain Duguid, well-known for his helpful Old Testament expositions, here turns to the New with a book on the Armour of God. It began life as a sermon series, and has an introductory chapter and then one on each part of the armour (including prayer) – so 8 chapters in all. Duguid is particularly helpful on two aspects: the Old Testament background to the armour, and how Jesus wore it on our behalf.
Reading the book has definitely made me want to preach on the Armour of God, so that’s a good thing. It’s also the sort of book you could give to laypeople to read – though using a word like ‘sartorial’ on the very first page isn’t particularly helpful!

Thanks to Crossway for a complimentary copy of this book through their Beyond the Page review programme.
