Editorial Reviews


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

Reading Victory Over the Darkness has been the catalyst for numerous people on the journey of spiritual freedom in Christ. 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

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, Orlando, Florida

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

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 of God to help set the captives free.
Paul A. Cedar
President, Mission America, Minneapolis, Minnesota

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.

President, The King’s Seminary, Founding Pastor, The Church On The Way, Van Nuys, California

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.

Daily Audio Bible,

Dr. Neil Anderson has done a masterful job of taking a rather complex truth and making it plain enough for all to understand and practical enough for all to experience. 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 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 the 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

Victory Over the Darkness is a much-needed book written for everyone who longs for spiritual growth and, 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.

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 to 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 the contribution of 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

4Solidifying and Enouraging
By Theodore Brooks
When I started reading this book I would estimate I would have to battle anxiety and fear at least one a week. My biggest fear was the fear of the unknown. Dr Anderson helped point out the obvious. That we are loved by a gracious good God. By His grace, I have become content with who I am in Him at the moment. And trusting Him for what He has planned for me.

5My life will never be the same!
By DaughterofGrace
Victory Over the Darkness: Realizing the Power of Your Identity in Christ
I was lost and was ready to give up on life when I was pointed to this book. If it had not been for this book I don't think I would still be here. Learning who we are 'In Christ' is essential to living victorious. Too many of us are walking around not even know who we are. We walk around feeling guilty, condemned and like slaves to this life. We have believed lies that other people have spoken about us. We still believe that even though we have asked for forgiveness for our sins, that we somehow we still aren't worthy of forgiveness. We believe lies satan speaks to us. All lies! After reading this book, I learned who I am. Who God says I am. The Only One that matters is God...what He says...and He says so many good things about us!!! I'm so thankful for this book it's hard to put in words. I no longer struggle with addiction, other unhealthy habits, nor mental illness. I was healed through the teachings in this book and through the book after it, 'The Bondage Breaker'. I've bought countless 'Victory Over the Darkness' books and given them to friends. This book changed my life forever and I thank God everyday that I've learned what I have through Neil Anderson's teachings and Freedom in Christ Ministries. Read it and you'll never be the same! There truly is 'Victory Over the Darkness'!!!
