At the gathering of a new group of young people in 1973, Larry Barrett felt God tell him to "go home and start keeping a diary, because some day you will write a book about this experience." Larry immediately went home and started that journal and was faithful to continue writing all through what was later to be known as "The Battle of J.U." He thought the journal would be full of glorious miracles, mighty accomplishments, and victories. in the first entry, he wrote: "This is the account of how God's Holy Spirit works." Little did he know what was really to come, or that in some cases his entries would actually be the account of how God's Holy Spirit doesn't work. This is the true story of a man and his wife who endured a myriad of spiritual oppressions, and eventually came out of it with victory and peace in their hearts. Through it all, they learned the hard way some important lessons that are shared in the pages of this book.
