Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

There is a kind of man God uses. He stands tall in the face of giants. He strives to honor God through his life. He is trusting when it seems all hope is lost. And when life is uncertain, he is certain of God’s unfailing provision.

 

Battle Ready is for any man who longs to serve God. Inside you’ll explore the lives of men who made an impact in their world, including  

 

Joshua, who led the Israelites into the Promised Land

Caleb, who trusted God, and not himself, for victory in battle

 

Uncover the traits of authentic manhood. Learn how to fully lean on Him. And become a man God can use, a man who is battle ready!

Format: Paperback
Although this book was written for men I found it extremely informative and interesting. The author, a man who has a ministry for men takes everyday occurrances and shows how they are a part of God's plans even if we can't see it at the time. This book is about having faith in God. God uses many different stages to hone us into servants that are capable of standing strong in the face of difficulties. Although we may go through the desert of monotony, disappointment, and down right boredom, it is our faith that God will use us and our study of the Word that in the end makes us ready for the trials of leadership ahead. God can not use someone who is too anxious to be the leader and is not capable of standing in the face of problems, he uses the leader who can face anything and carry on. The men of the bible that Mr Farrar focuses on are Caleb and Joshua, two men of great leadership and strength who spent 40 years wandering in the desert before being allowed to enter the Promised Land. This is the second book in the Bold Men series and is definitely a must read for anyone interested in a look behind the scenes of a "successful" Christian leader.

Being a Christian woman has its challenges and I cannot imagine the challenges Christian men have to face every day. Christian men must be strong leaders for their families and books like Battle Ready can be useful resources to turn to.

This book focuses on two men of the Bible who were strong men for God, Joshua and Caleb. Battle Ready goes beyond just being a Bible study. It is a very honest, personal, and straightforward book that goes deep into the Word to help men be strong for God. There is a very good section about bitterness in the Increased Hardship chapter that is very surprising and interesting. There is a lot of very interesting and useful information and Godly advice in the pages of this book.

I learned a lot from this book and I know that men will be able to get a lot out of this very practical and very well written book. I highly recommend Battle Ready for all Christian men. The Christian life is not an easy one and men need to be prepared for the battles that are coming. I know my husband is looking forward to getting his hands on this book.

As the mother of two sons I was really interested in reading this book. The back cover says:

"There is a kind of man God uses. He stands tall in the face of giants. He strives to honor God through his life. He is trusting when it seems all hope is lost. And when life is uncertain, he is certain of God's unfailing provision."

Further the back cover says:

"Uncover the traits of authentic manhood. Learn how to fully lean on Him . And become a man God can use, a man who is battle ready!"

I had really high hopes prior to reading this book. This part of the Bold Men of God series and features Joshua and Caleb. I have to say that I did get a lot out of this book and will be making sure both of my sons get copies of it.

I think the biggest theme in the book is that it gives example after Biblical example of men who stood on Faith through hard times. This book is about dealing with hardship and hard times as much as it is about these men in the Bible.

With the state of our economy and the country in general, now more than ever we all need words of encouragement. This book, while directed at men, gives those words of encouragement. The author shows again and again in the Bible where God has promised to provide for us, to sustain us. We just have to have Faith.

This book is very uplifting and encouraging and I'd recommend it.

I read this book when I was going through a situation with my job that made me think about whether I was trying to please man or please God. Just about every other page I stopped and underlined or put a star by a section.
