A book for all Christians!  Aug 25, 2004
I have just read the book for the third time, and have taught from it in two Christian education classes. I'm sure that I'll read it again, and am planning on teaching from it again in a home fellowship group this Fall. John White shares timeless truth in a very understandable format, and he has a unique ability to make it personable. I know that I will never outgrow the book. In the realm of Christian books, it's my favorite.
 
A quarter century and still going strong...  Nov 19, 2002
The best recommendation one can give for John White's "The Fight" simply comes in its longevity in the marketplace. Christian books go out of print like mad, but the classic ones go on and on. The main reason for this is timelessness, and White's primer on how to start one's Christian walk is as appropriate today as it was when first released.

One of three books I recommend to every new Christian (Lewis' "Mere Christianity" and Ortiz's "Disciple" being the other two), this book is so chock full of basics that it even works as a book for people who are just beginning to seek the Lord. In "The Fight" are found the core parts of the daily Christian life (summarized here as): Prayer, Listening to God, Sharing the Faith, The Devil, Faith, One's Standing in Christ, Holiness, God's Will, Christian Excellence, and the Battle Around Us.

White's background as a psychologist comes through as many of his illustrations have a profundity that comes from understanding the foibles of humanity, while also avoiding the pitfall of framing everything within psychology's constructs rather than Christianity's (a problem with many Christian books today.) He also brings clarity to difficult issues that every man and woman struggle with in life, shining the light of Christ into even the darkest areas. His insights into topics like lust are so exemplary that I continue to use them when teaching today, since I have never found better explanations that are so human and yet so spiritually astute at the same time.

A must for any new Christian, I have routinely given people this book for a baptism gift, so useful is it for starting the journey.

 
A classic - great for new Christian  May 24, 2000
I read this book a year or so ago, and it really drilled home the important disciplines of the Christian life. Easy to read, but it will take some effort to live it out! Highly recommended.
 
The best Christian book in the world?  Nov 30, 1999
Yes, at least in my book. (Pun intended.) At least among the top all-time ten in Christian literature. A complete, well-balanced and powerful guide to the ins and outs of Christian life, this is the perfect introduction for a newborn believer (yes, do give it as a gift!) and it can make a grizzled old veteran in the wars of life (like myself) cry (real tears) and even laugh out loud (even on a public bus, once...). I've read it at least four times, maybe more, and it moves me every time. I've got three copies on my bookshelves, except when they're out on loan to others. And now that I've found I can buy it at this site (haven't found it in my local Christian bookstore lately), I'll start giving it away as a gift again... Especially to young people. As a gift for confirmation, for example. (I sure wish this book had been available when I was fifteen...) As to content, the book (at least in my quite early editions) is divided into 11 sections: Beginnings, Prayer, God still speaks, On being a signpost, His Infernal Majesty, Faith, Changed relationships, Guidance, Holiness, Deliverance from drudgery, and The fight. If you haven't read it, by all means do! If you have read it, buy another one and give it away!
 
a practical guide to the christian walk  Feb 26, 1998
John White starts with the basics, for new Christians, and goes on to cover many topics that are an essential part of the christian walk. John White is an excellent writer, and this is one of his best. Also recommended for those who are considering Christianity
