Publisher's Summary

Get out of your own way. 

Whether you recognize it or not, you're at war with yourself. There's anxiety. Selfishness. Self-sabotaging tendencies. Narcissism. The black dog of depression. The inability to do the great things you long to do because you spend so many hours mindlessly drifting through the Internet. 

It is war, but all is not lost. You can win - if you choose to engage. 

In I Declare War, Levi Lusko candidly shares about his struggles with moodiness, bullying, suicidal thoughts, night terrors, and difficulty managing himself. He identifies four weapons you have at your disposal - thoughts, words, behaviors, and power - and illustrates how to use them to achieve ongoing victory. These practical tools from God’s Word will help you learn to:

  • Retaliate against your anxiety by filling your heart with truth and making it inhospitable to terror 
  • Stop being victimized by your bad behaviors and become the victor you were born to be.
  • Overcome self-imposed isolation by learning to think right so you can live right.
  • Spare your family unnecessary heartache by confronting your dysfunction so they don’t have to. 

It’s time to stop being your own worst enemy. Declare war and become the person, the spouse, the parent, and the leader God intended you to be.

Critic Reviews

“We are all created in the image of God. We don’t have be chained by our feelings. We don’t have to do the things we don’t want to do. We don’t have to be defined by our failures, mistakes, or sin. This is powerful! Yet how often do we not live based on this truth? One of the reasons I admire and respect Levi is his transparency and search for truth. He doesn’t shy away from the hard or ugly stuff. Through his own story, he strives to help others get out of their own way and into the truth of who they are in God. This book will help you do just that!” (Tim Tebow, Heisman Trophy winner and New York Times best-selling author)

“Levi personally understands that the hardest battle is the one we’re fighting against ourselves. That’s why I’m so thankful he’s poured out the biblical wisdom he’s gained along the way into the pages of this book. The practical tools, scriptural teaching, and trusted guidance found in I Declare War are invaluable to anyone who wants to embrace victory in their own life!” (Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times best-selling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries)

One of the best books I’ve read this year

Over the course of the past 7 months I’ve read 12 books and they were all faith based. I declare war without a doubt was one of the best. Levi is super talented and wise. He is so open in his books that you feel like he’s a close friend when you’ve never even met the guy! When listening to this book I felt like it was a 5hr faith motivational word especially that last chapter. If you feel burdened and under a lot of discomfort, stress, worry, anxiety, etc. this is the book for you!

Right time right place find this book

Thank you Levi for your wonderful writing. jJust happened to find your sermon on TV one day, only to find out that you have a church in my town! Experienced some struggles lately and between your sermons and this book I feel like I've gotten back up on my feet. I'm not much of "a church guy" but a plan to stop by your place in Billings here shortly . Cheers and God bless!

Another Awesome Read By Levi Lusko

This book is filled with the information I needed to overcome the enemy and move forward. Confirmation that I am victorious in Jesus. Affirming my need to share my struggles with others who will lift me up in prayer!
This book touched on every area of my life that has held me in bondage; then gave me the tools to break the bondage! This book will not disappoint and can be listened to over and over again! I plan on sharing it with everyone I know.
Thank you Levi Lusko and may God richly bless you and your family.

So validating!

The only other book to impact me more (besides the Bible) is The Search for Significance. I thank you for having the courage to be the vessel for this information. I can’t stop listening and telling others about it. So real and so relatable! Thank you!

The book I didn't realize I needed until I read it

Levi is one of the most influential authors, pastors and leaders of my life. In each of his books his thoughts, words, and insights are culturally relevant and timely. He continues to tell the genuine truth honestly while wrapping it in grace and love. I Declare War is no exception- he intentionally writes to his readers in a way that is grounded in scripture with the goal of not only impacting the heart, but changing the way you think and live in order to transform your life. The pages are filled with humor, new perspectives, and personal stories, without sacrificing solid content or taking away from the genuine desire to see people's lives impacted. I highly recommend reading this book!
