Discover Who You Are in Christ!

"You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:23)

It's Jesus' promise to you--the promise that you will live triumphantly. But what keeps you from really walking in the joy of the Lord? The powers of darkness attack us daily. But, as Dr. Neil Anderson shows in Victory Over the Darkness, you can have the power to conquer them by knowing who you are in Christ. In this book, you will learn how to:

· Realize the power of your identity in Christ
· Free yourself from the burdens of your past
· Stand against the spiritual forces of this world
· Win the battle for your mind
· Become the spiritual person you want to be
· Discover the truth about God's view of you

Victory Over the Darkness spells out practical and productive ways to experience Christian growth based on Christ's promise. Learn to apply the truths of Scripture as a base from which to renew your mind and become the person Christ empowers you to be.


"The Lord has given Neil Anderson a marvelous counseling and discipleship model that is a genuine blessing to the Body of Christ."

Bill Bright (1921-2003), founder, Campus Crusade for Christ International (Cru), Orlando, Florida

"Neil Anderson touches a nerve of vital need in the Body of Christ! His ministry in the arena of spiritual growth is sound-minded, trustworthy and--best of all--Christ-centered and Bible-based. I recommend him and his work."

Jack W. Hayford, president, The King's Seminary; founding pastor, The Church On The Way, Van Nuys, California

"Of the many things I appreciate about Neil Anderson's ministry, his commitment to God's Word tops my list. Neil goes to God's Word to demonstrate that resolution in life is found in the Word of life because it points us to the Lord of life."

Robert B. Bugh, senior pastor, Wheaton Bible Church, Wheaton, Illinois

"When it seemed America was suffering addiction more than ever before, God raised up Neil Anderson to write Victory Over the Darkness to help people walk through the steps to victory over addiction. I have used Neil's steps to victory in my teaching at Liberty University, and I have outlined his Steps to Freedom in Christ in my writings. Praise God for the contribution of Neil Anderson to the Christian church and for this awesome book."

Elmer L. Towns, co-founder and vice president, Liberty University, Lynchburg, Virginia

"This book is as relevant today as when it was first released. New readers will find life-transforming insights and practical guidance on every page. It is still the first book I recommend to those who need to be grounded in their identity in Christ."

Dr. Marcus Warner, president,

"Victory Over the Darkness was released at a time in my life when I desperately needed its message. I didn't know how to fight back, and I didn't know the authority I had in knowing who I was in Christ. This book profoundly impacted my awareness of spiritual warfare and helped me see things as they really are. I am forever grateful for this gift because it changed my life. I've given it away more times than I can count. Read it, and you'll be doing the same thing."

Brian Hardin, Daily Audio Bible

"When we first met Neil Anderson, we were impacted most by his pastors' heart. He loves God, and he loves people. We've often laughed with one another and jokingly said that Neil says more over lunch than most pastors do in the sermons they spend a week preparing. He trained our intercessors in discipleship counseling, and they still experience the power of God when they walk people through Steps to Freedom in Christ. Neil's teaching on spiritual warfare is biblically sound, powerful, and practical."

Pastor Tom and Leighann McCoy, Thompson Station Church, Thompson Station, Tennessee

"Countless people have found genuine freedom in Christ through the insights God has given Neil Anderson. Among them is my oldest son."

Kay Arthur, author of As Silver Refined and God, Are You There?; executive vice president and co-founder, Precept Ministries, Chattanooga, Tennessee

"As part of our core curriculum studies, we encourage every new member of our church to complete Dr. Anderson's Steps to Freedom in Christ. It is the book we offer to every person who desires spiritual counseling. I have seen the hope it brings for those who thought there was no hope for their lives. Even more amazing, I know the man behind the book, and he lives the life he proclaims."

Paul Bane, pastor, New Hope Community Church, Brentwood, Tennessee

"It is time for all of us to experience freedom in Christ! Dr. Neil Anderson shares solid biblical guidelines for how Christians can be used by God to help set the captives free."

Paul A. Cedar, president, Mission America, Minneapolis, Minnesota

"Dr. Neil Anderson has done a masterful job of taking a rather complex truth and making it plain enough for all to understand. The principles in Victory Over the Darkness have helped us to disciple both old and new believers in our church. As a result, lives are being transformed by the power of God."

Gerald Martin, pastor, Cornerstone Church and Ministries, Harrisonburg, Virginia

"Victory Over the Darkness is a much-needed book for everyone who longs for spiritual growth--even more, joyous spiritual victory--in a dark world."

Robert L. Saucy, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University, La Mirada, California

"In Lombardi-like fashion, Neil Anderson has entered our locker room and re-introduced our 'football,' reminding us of the power found in the fundamentals of our faith. Thank you, Neil, for pointing us toward God's Word and the security and significance that is ours in Christ."

Ed Smith, president, Williamson College; founder, Oxygen for Leaders, Inc.
