"What the hell do you want?" she spat out. What Clane wanted--and fast--was the answer to one question: Who killed Horace Farnsworth? But to get the truth he had to handle this tough babe just right. She was as touchy as a trainload of nitroglycerine. One wrong move on Clane's part and she might blow his case so high he could never find the pieces again... just out of pure, overdeveloped viciousness!"

Prepare For Battle: Basic Training in Spiritual Warfare

by Neal Pirolo

"I hate war!" Neal declares in his opening paragraph. "But my hatred for the enemy of our souls is greater than my abhorrence of war!" Making reference to over 700 Scriptures that point to victory in battle, Neal focuses on the basics, yet with significant, new insights: Spiritual Armor, Spiritual Weapons, Our Attitude Toward War, Tactics of satan, Spiritual Authority, Principles of War, and Strategies for Battlefield Living. Each chapter is followed by PRACTICAL INSIGHTS written by Yvonne from her experiences. Reader comments: "Some people deny that we are at war, yet others have convoluted ideas about it. Neither is effective in battle. The Pirolos' understanding of spiritual warfare (based on Scripture) and their own experiences (also based on Scripture) provide insightful and useful help for any Christian's life." Aimee W. "This is a practical, concise manual on spiritual warfare. It is simple to read and understand, but very well thought out and very Scripturally-based. This book is not just for pastors and missionaries, but should be in the library of every Christian." Michelle V.
