Publisher's Summary

The war is on. The Devil plots to defeat you. Meet some battle-tested warriors who fight at your side.

Satan is real. He's a formidable foe who wants to snatch us away from God, and the thought of doing battle with him can seem daunting.

Even so, the saints who have gone before us have engaged the Devil, armed with the power of Christ and emerged victorious! These fellow warriors in heaven now fight on our behalf.

In Saints Who Battled Satan, Paul Thigpen, author of Manual for Spiritual Warfare, details the heroic combat of 17 saints who defeated the enemy.

In Saints Who Battled Satan, discover:

  • How Satan attacks us through extraordinary assaults and everyday temptations.
  • How these 17 saints used prayer, scripture, the sacraments, and other spiritual weapons against the enemy.
  • How the virtues served these saints as combat armor.
  • How these victorious saints now offer their aid to those of us still battling on earth.

Listen to the inspiring and triumphant stories of Padre Pio, Francis of Assisi, Catherine of Siena, Teresa of Avila, John Vianney, and a dozen other saints who battled Satan. You'll find the strength, the courage, and the faith to win your own war against the enemy.

Hideous narration, excellent content

Kevin O'Brien has a very nice speaking voice. Why then did he choose to make such strange voices and sound effects, most of which sound like they came from a third-rate cartoon? The devil sounds like a gleeful, over the top drama queen. Gemma Galgani sounds like a cartoon chihuahua. Utterly hideous!

I couldn't take much more of it, so I went for the Kindle version. It is an excellent book, inspiring and uplifting. A nice companion to Thigpen's classic text on spiritual warfare.

Hopefully, you won't ever have to go head to head with Satan, but these saints did, and they conquered through Christ. Whatever we're up against, many have come before who endured as much or more. The saints are our teachers and friends. Now in the presence of God, they can help show us the way more clearly. That's the message, and it's something Catholics should contemplate frequently.

Wildly Inappropriate Narration

The subject matter of this book is quite serious, yet the narrator read it as though it was the Wizard of Oz. It seemed like he had no idea what he was reading, actually. He likely uses the same childish rythm when narrating any book regardless of the subject.

Don't listen to this narration. Buy the book and read it yourself.

Much needed

For any Catholic or Christian trying to reignite his or her faith and draw from illustrations of the strongest examples of faith in history, this book is for you. Also the last chapters give an onslaught of powerful and enlightening quotes that will invigorate your belief and passion for the Lord and His religion on earth.

Enlightening

This was a very enlightening book. It breaks open the secrets of Satan's tricks. It has opened my eyes of how I have been tricked for many years. This is a powerful weapon against Satan. Thank you so much for writing this book.

Totally loved this book!!!!

I totally loved this book!!!! The only disappointing thing about the entire story was that it ended. (It leaves you wanting to hear more.) What a beautiful description of how the Blessed Mother crushed the head of the serpent, subjugating him under her foot. And I loved hearing about how the demons are terrified of even her name. I'll definitely be listening again to this book.
