As Christians, it is important to remember that every day, we are engaged in spiritual warfare. And just like physical warfare, we have a real enemy, and real lives are at stake. So, how do we prepare for the battles we are going to face? What can we do so that when those moments come, we are not caught off guard but instead instinctively respond in a righteous manner?
Soldiers and Their Battle Drills by Jesse Posner is a compelling book which delves deep into spiritual warfare and discusses how Christians can use the Word of God to strengthen their discipline and become more Christ-like in everything they do. Full of relevant scriptures and insightful commentary, each chapter of the book focuses on a different aspect of spiritual warfare and includes practical ways for readers to implement these principles in their everyday lives.
Throughout the book, Jesse includes real-world knowledge and experience from his thirteen years as a soldier in the U.S. Army, drawing parallels between tactics, drills, and methods soldiers use to train for combat and battle drills believers can use to train to win in their spiritual walk. Including 3-6 questions at the end of each chapter for readers to dig deep and evaluate themselves more, this book is a powerful resource that can be used individually or for group study. There’s a saying in the Army to soldiers that says, “Train how you fight.” With this practical, to-the-point guide, readers will be doing exactly that.
