Keys to Overcoming the Enemy

Christian, do you suffer from an unbridled temper, overpowering sinful habits, overwhelming sadness, or any number of other spiritually defeating issues? Are you seemingly unable to establish and maintain positive, meaningful relationships with others?

Counselor or Pastor, do you sometimes wonder why you have such limited authority over evil spirits; and why, after evicting them one week, the same spirits show up again the next week?

In Delivering the Captives, Alice Smith draws on her thirty-five years of deliverance ministry around the world to expose some of Satan's "slickest strategies." She explains how he deceives us into building spiritual strongholds in our own lives through willful sin so his demons can operate, develop into strongmen, and access levels of dominion over us. Let Alice show you how to detect and defeat strongmen, and precisely why Jesus said we must bind the strongmen before we dismantle their strongholds and permanently dismiss them.

Here are your guidelines, including Alice's much sought-after list of Apparent Demonic Groupings which reveals how demons work together. Here are your biblical tools, including prayers, proclamations, and pronouncements to renounce evil spirits and remove them from your life and from the lives of others.


"Alice Smith may be petite in stature but she is powerful in the Holy Spirit. Delivering the Captives is one powerful book that will do serious damage to Satan's kingdom. I highly recommend it."

"Delivering the Captives will minister to anyone wanting to experience and to share the glorious freedom God wants for His children. Alice Smith's straightforward and practical wisdom on becoming--and remaining--unchained from sin's enslavement is priceless."
