Luke 4:18 Ministries

Jesus said he came to give every single person who followed him a “rich and satisfying life.”  (John 10:10, NLT). Why don’t more of us, as Christ-followers, experience the fullness of life Jesus offers? One big reason is we aren’t adequately aware of the tricks, weapons, and tools of the enemy. “The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill and destroy” (John 10:10, NLT).

The spiritual realm is real and primal. What happens in that realm affects our degree of aliveness, now and forever. In Caught Between Heaven and Hell, Don Stewart gives helpful insights into what the “life-robber” is up to, and the resources God has given us to be faithful overcomers.  This is more than theology and theory to Don. He lives this stuff. I’ve seen him help countless people become free to live fully. I’m excited to think that through this book even more will come to live in victory and abundance.

Caught Between Heaven and Hell is an amazingly thorough and practical read. Don Stewart has provided the Christian with a vital tool with which to engage and successfully confront the realm of darkness. Many books have been written on spiritual warfare and healing, but few have been able to answer a good many of the questions that arise, such as: Why is this so? or, How does that work?

C.S. Lewis spoke of two dangers: one being an unhealthy interest in the demonic; the other, being oblivious to its workings. This book has the rare quality of balancing factual with applicable. The reader will truly know why there is a need to understand the spiritual war zone each of us face, while being given the tools to successfully and victoriously respond.

If you are looking for a resource that can help others who are losing ground to the kingdom of darkness, or you are seeking to be personally equipped to live life in a spiritual war zone, make this an essential part of your reading. Stewart has provided the church with what I believe will be a classic and helpful study, for those new to their faith in Christ as well as those who have known him for years.

Pastor Don Stewart’s new book, Caught Between Heaven and Hell, provides a biblically based prescription for the soul. Don provides understanding as to why we can suffer the spiritual, psychological, and even physical challenges coming from the real battle in this world, which happens in our own mind.

As a Christian and a licensed physician assistant in family medicine and psychotherapy for over thirty years, I find this book helpful both professionally and personally. Thank you, Don.

Caught Between Heaven and Hell details the process of restoring ourselves in the Truth that brings freedom. I have used this process in ministry and in my professional counseling practice; in every case, God has stepped in to transform a life. Pastors, counselors, intercessors, and disciplers will benefit from its in-depth discussion of the “weapons of our warfare.” I sense the Lord will use this book to equip the helper and heal the brokenhearted. I am honored and delighted to recommend it.

Every Christ follower must think through the issue this book presents. Scripture makes it clear that we are involved in a spiritual battle. However, the practical effects and personal preparation required for victory are often overlooked. Don Stewart has blended the disciplines of biblical study, thorough research, and practical experience to ready every believer for battle. This book will heighten your awareness of the conflict which rages, while bringing renewed confidence in the victory already won.

Whether you have been a Christian for a matter of days or a lifetime, Don Stewart’s work in Caught Between Heaven and Hell will be a treasure chest you will go back to over and over again. His heart comes through on every page. Stewart carefully weaves a tapestry of truths from the Word of God and other sources to present the reader with a clear understanding of the nature of the battle we are engaged in. The authenticity of a changed life will speak to those searching to understand what it means to walk out the freedom and healing Jesus purchased through his blood.

This book will delight believers who have found themselves asking the tough questions about spiritual realities. Stewart examines the big picture and helps believers see the necessity of both healing and walking in truth, to live an overcoming life. I look forward to challenging our body of believers to read this amazing exposition on spiritual warfare.

Don Stewart’s new book, Caught Between Heaven and Hell, makes a significant contribution to our understanding of spiritual health and freedom. Don writes from a background of theological education, pastoral ministry, and counseling experience, along with a broad-spectrum awareness of culture and how it impacts our thinking and behavior.

This very readable book is filled with accessible information and written for practical application. The explanation of footholds and strongholds is clear and understandable, the practical action steps for dealing with past issues and present challenges are straightforward, and the section on staying free is especially helpful. You’ll appreciate Don’s thoroughness in providing notes from his journal, a list of additional resources, and well thought-out discussion questions for use in groups and in counseling settings.

“I have known Don Stewart for almost 30 years.  Don’s wisdom and insight have followed him through his many years as a pastor, counselor and mentor.  As I read Caught Between Heaven and Hell, I wished I had been able to understand its content many years ago when I first began my journey of faith. If I were to tell you what this book is about I would use the word, “displacement”.  Don helps us learn how to displace the embedded lies many of us believe that create such dysfunction in our lives.  Don also helps us learn how to place truth into those newly freed areas so we can begin to walk out our true God-breathed identity. I recommend this book to any who hunger to discover who they are in Christ and who desire walk forward in greater levels of freedom.”
