Author exposes Satan's deceit through modern culture

The atmosphere of our culture is rife with subtle attacks from Satan as he tries to tear people away from three core aspects of having a heart that's right with God: faith, hope, and love. These mattered to Jesus, and so naturally the enemy of our soul wants to attack us in these areas through many aspects of modern culture. Delayed by Deceit (paperback, 978-1-60477-406-1; hardcover, 978-1-60477-407-8) is newsworthy because it speaks in language we can understand about a unique spiritual gift that Christ imparted to us. There are not many books that deal with the topic of moving in the gift of discernment from a user's point of view, since this gift is vastly misunderstood in the church.

It is the author's hope that readers will gain a more acute awareness of how Satan studies and manipulates humankind, and how the gift of discernment of spirits as described in 1 Corinthians 12:7-11 validates the authorship of the Holy Spirit, since it is possible to determine where thoughts or words are coming from, whether from the Spirit or the flesh (and thus the enemy).

"This is not an 'end times' book; it is more of an 'opportunity of awakening' that addresses what normally obscures the view of a person as they understand who Jesus is and what following Him is all about," says Westview.

After working for twelve years in finance and accounting, Clair Westview felt that God was calling him out of that environment into Christian service, primarily to write. Westview has been a Christian for over twenty-one years, and when God gave him the gift of discernment, he knew He wanted him to write with the wisdom He had given him concerning the spiritual battles we are facing at this time in history.

Xulon Press, a part of Salem Communications Corporation, is the world's largest Christian publisher, with more than 4,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order Delayed by Deceit through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors.
