In Life in the Combat Zone, Rick Renner teaches you what it takes to fight effectively and come out with the victory, no matter what type of spiritual conflict you face.
Throughout the book, Rick reveals the traits needed to emerge as a conqueror from every spiritual conflict. As he explains in great detail, you must cultivate discipline, preparation, and patience in your life before you ever enter the combat zone. You have to take time to learn to fight like a Roman solider, train like a Greek athlete, and produce like a farmer so you can please the Lord, fulfill your destiny, and receive an eternal crown of victory.
Spiritual battles are unavoidable, and they can be fierce. In this book, Rick Renner will show you how to engage in your battle effectively. One thing is sure, the fight is personal, so it's imperative that you do all you can to come out victoriously!
