Dr. Michael Youssef issues challenge to take on ‘The Hidden Enemy’


By Peter Wooding, European Bureau Chief for ASSIST News Service

Hidden Enemy Cover smallerATLANTA, GA (ANS – February 23, 2018) — In his bestselling new book, The Hidden Enemy, Dr. Michael Youssef reveals how Christians can achieve lasting victory over two of the greatest threats to the future of Christianity: aggressive secularism and radical Islam.

“We see it in the media, where Christian values are under siege,” Dr. Youssef says. “We’ve seen it most recently with attacks on Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith. We see it online, with the hysterical rantings of bullies on social media. We see it in schools and universities, where free speech is under attack.

“On one side — an unrelenting liberal onslaught attempts to silence Christians. On the other — radical Islamic warriors fight daily to overpower the Truth of Jesus Christ.”

In his book, The Hidden Enemy, releasing March 6, 2018, Dr. Youssef reveals practical ways to take on this two-front war that followers of Jesus are facing today, covering topics such as:

  • Secularism: The Enemy Within
  • Finding the Truth in a Post-Truth World
  • Will Political Islam Destroy Western Civilization?

He also reveals the identity of a third enemy at work in our world today — a hidden one that many fail to recognize.

The Hidden Enemy concludes with a practical action agenda, which Dr. Youssef says will help Christians live faithfully for Christ amidst an increasingly hostile culture.

“I believe this book will uncover the keys to providing hope and freedom for this generation and the next. But time is running out,” he stated.
