Hi guys need some advice is the APG a splat book? I feel that some of the spellls in this book are BROKEN

I disagree strongly that the spell is broken. If I understand your point here, your primary complaint is that a 4th level cleric spell that essentially does a variation of a *3rd* level wizard spell gives your player +2 AC... ?
I'm assuming your party is at 7th level to have access to a 4th level spell, so +2 armor and shield is more or less on par if you're a tank/cleric (seems a bit monty haul to my table taste, but whatever floats your boat. The armor and shield is 42% of the average character wealth at 7th level, so if that's the majority of their equipment it is pretty balanced)... 21 with the armor, 25 with the shield, 26 with the dex, 29 with the shield of faith (+3 at 7th)... +3 with Barkskin if cast so 32, and +2 for this spell, so 35. Yep, that's gonna take anything with a +20 to hit, which should be a goodly amount of Ogres, Giants or anything really strong.
You could have a bunch of enemies enjoy the 17 Touch AC (which is still respectible, but much easier) that guy just blew three spells to achieve.
You could see how they deal with any sort of battlefield that moves, shifts, holds water, or otherwise causes them to fight while making checks which take into account the -8 Armor Penalty Check modifier that suit of armor demands.
There has to be variety if they are going to be challenged. Otherwise they'll all just buy a bunch of armor and you'll end up in a GM/Player arms race that never ends well.
what do you think about it. It feels to me it gives the PCs an unfair adventage, because the monsters and NPCs dont have stuff from this book
I mean, you can run it the way you like, but anything I bring to the table from sourcebooks for players to use are all fair game for anything in the GM stable... sometimes players request Core Book only for that reason.
Turnabout is *always* fair play.
If your problem is that you're running a module and it doesn't use those spells/feats/whatever... swap them out! Don't be afraid to rebuild a monster or challenge using new content!
