Collected sermons on 2 Cor 2:11: “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us, for we are not ignorant of his devices.” A marvelous companion volume to Brooks’ famed book, Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices. The Bible warns us that Satan is crafty and subtle; to be ready for such an enemy of our souls, we must know something of his method and tactics.

About the Author
William Spurstowe (1605-1666) was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. He received his B.A. in 1627 and his M.A. in 1630. His first pastorate was at Great Hampden in Buckinghamshire, where he was installed in 1638. In 1643 Spurstowe was chosen to attend the Westminster Assembly as a presbyterian member. From 1658-1660, Spurstowe, along with Edward Reynolds, Edmund Calamy, Simeon Ashe, Thomas Manton, Thomas Case, and others, served the parliament of Richard Cromwell. Spurstowe was one of the ejected ministers of 1662. He died soon after the great plague of London, in 1666.
