-- Combat! Lessons on Spiritual Warfare from Military History
by Dennis L. Peterson, a timely insight on how to achieve victorious spiritual combat, will be released February 7.In the Christian life, one fact is crystal clear: we are at war. It involves every Christian and collectively the entire Church—and it is a holy war. It does not involve physical combat; it is against spiritual enemies. It is a hard-fought war, demanding everything a believer has and is. We can learn about all of this through God's Word, but His truths are also illustrated through the events that have occurred in human military history. This book uses both, surveying the military history of Israel from Abram's operation to rescue Lot through the fall of Jerusalem and examining our spiritual warfare in the light of military history and modern military organization.
In his book, Peterson appeals to Christians who are no different than anyone else and who suffer the ups and downs of normal living. Beautifully illustrated with both historic photographs and vivid artwork, Combat!
provides and relates to Christian warfare, insights from both Bible-times events and historical military battles and leaders. Peterson writes in an interesting style that will appeal to the average Christian as well as interested academics. With a subject matter that is timely, needed, and of eternal consequence, Combat!
recognizes that for victorious spiritual combat, we need God's weapons, organization, and strategy, and military history illustrates how it's done.About Dennis L. Peterson
