Heaven Taken by Storm | Reading Together

To coincide with the third section of Ephesians: Kingdom War, several members of my church and I will be reading through Thomas Watson’s book, Heaven Taken by Storm. The book’s other title reveals its relevance to the subject of spiritual warfare, The Christian Soldier.

Below is the reading plan with links to each post as we work our way through the book.

Happy reading!
