Story Behind the Book
A common theme emerged as Tony Evans held counseling sessions with countless individuals. People seemed completely unaware of how the spiritual realm was at work in their lives. "They saw clearly with their physical eyes," he says, "but remained unaware of the evil, unseen spiritual activity that either caused or aggravated their physical world. Even in my own life, when I faced challenges or struggles, I would often reference the physical system without first looking at the spiritual cause," says Tony. "Thus this book's message was born to more effectively help people understand and address their struggles from a spiritual point of view."
