Beeke, Joel R.
First Peter 5:8-11 is a most important portion of Scripture that warns Christians to be ever vigilant because of their enemy the devil. He is said to be like a ‘roaring lion’, prowling around seeking someone to devour. This book is a practical exposition of the Apostle Peter’s words written by an experienced pastor. Its aim is to inform Christians of their duty in reference to their ‘great enemy’ and to encourage them to resist him while standing firm in the faith.

"The republication of John Brown’s brief and readable study of 'The Christian’s Great Enemy' is both timely and helpful. For younger Christians it will provide a pocket manual for spiritual warfare. At the same time it will serve as a refresher course for more seasoned Christians who are aware of their own weakness and forgetfulness." -Sinclair Ferguson
