Fighting to Win: and other things I didn't learn in Sunday School is a book about spiritual conquest and victory. It is not meant to be another study on personal satisfaction, and individual holiness. Those books abound. This is a biblically-based manual on spiritual warfare, that is designed to be put to use.
Fighting to Win takes seriously the command of Christ to take the nations for Him. The author comes from a position that Jesus is currently the reigning, ruling King, and that all authorities must submit to Him or be crushed by Him. The author writes from the perspective of a pastor who engages the culture with the Gospel of the Kingdom of God on the street level, as well as a missionary and Christian overseer to war-torn countries in Africa.
Simply a breath of fresh air in the murkiness that the modern church has become. Ron calls believers to take up their crosses--no, it's not just an expression--and explains how we can live like Christ today. Christians anywhere can benefit from reading this and being challenged to grow in true discipleship and maturity. I am underlining all over :)
I will say that I am a critic at heart (and a professional Christian book editor), but this book is double thumbs up, 100% recommended! Buy two and give one to a friend :)
Our author goes where angels fear to tread! Quite frankly, he is the best person to have written this book – Fighting to Win!
It is revolutionary in that it gives the reader a vision of Christian victory!
‘Fighting to Win’ takes you on a journey through the Bible and explains its victorious teachings.
This book needs to be read by Christian people, the Scripture references studied, and the ideas put into action.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough!
A powerful message on the rule and reign of Jesus Christ. Grounded in biblical truths, and drawing from his experiences in the US and Africa, Ron delivers a much-needed exhortation for today's society, especially those who profess to follow Jesus. This is a must-read!
