If you have been searching for a spiritual director to give you instructions on the path to sainthood, then this is the book for you. Fr. Heilman doesn't invent new methods for a deeper spiritual life, he draws upon the traditions of the Catholic faith and tried-and-true practices of the great saints such as St. Francis de Sales, St. Ignatius, and St. Vincent de Paul.

The book is so easy to follow and put into practice right away. Fr. Heilman gives step by step instructions in mental prayer and living a holy life. He includes charts to keep track of your daily spiritual practices and praying with the saints along with the holy souls for the souls of our loved ones. What a great way to help us to make sure we are growing in the interior spiritual life and to pray more powerfully for our loved ones and our world. If you found de Sales' Introduction to the Devout Life or St Ignatius's Spiritual Exercises useful but difficult to put into everyday practice, the this is the book that will help you do that.

So many people have been helped by Fr. Heilman's thoughtful spiritual direction on Relevant Radio's The Inner Life and this book is the way to help bring that teaching to your daily life in a practical way. So many people are hungry for ways to grow in holiness and this book should fill that great need.

Fr. Rick Heilman does an exceptional job of putting together a real manual--not a descriptive tome, but a practical nuts-and-bolts manual for becoming a prayerful, faithful Catholic. If you want to become "God Strong," as Fr. Heilman puts it, this is most definitely the book. You'll want to have one on your nightstand and one in your office. Your daily prayer life will never be the same after you start using the Church Militant Field Manual.

My first order, I purchased one for each of the rosaryworkhop guild and for our priest. It is so good that I am getting ready to order more copies to give friends, priests and family members - how better to know what our job is as the Church Militant! We need to know what we can do today more than ever before ! Margot Blair

We're all, in a sense, behind enemy lines these days, due to the alarmingly rapid and widespread spiritual and cultural decay occurring in the modern world.

Eternal Truth has been widely abandoned in favor of modern social norms.

Meanwhile, our wrestling is not "against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places". Yet many in the modern world have become blinded to the spiritual battle raging around us, and thus are left disabled on the battlefield, their defenses either compromised or nonexistent.

Father Heilman's book is an excellent prayer manual for anyone who seeks to quickly shore up their own spiritual defenses and to spiritually rescue fallen comrades. He offers an array of scripture, saint and papal quotes, and prayers, devotions and other spiritual practices (many of which have unfortunately fallen by the wayside in recent decades).

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a refresher course in the Faith. I recommend it also to those looking for a gift for converts, confirmandi and young people, and even for experienced prayer warriors who might find an orderly, structured approach a beneficial practice for enhancing their prayer life.

Very clear and concrete! At this point in my life as a Catholic (I converted in 2005) I found myself lost in sloth. This book came to my attention at the perfect time as an answer to a prayer. My nature is to need concrete advice on building my spiritual character and "running the race so as to win the prize". Older Catholic literature is often excellent this way, but this book has the strength of very detailed outlines for devotions that are most highly indulgenced, together with more updated and accessible language. I've just read to the point where I'm ready to launch into a spiritual 12-week boot-camp designed by Fr Heilman, and am encouraged beyond words. This book is well thought out, supportive and clear and will help you realize you're part of the Communion of Saints in all its power. Planning to give several copies to friends.

This book does a fine job of laying out a "field manual" for members of the Church militant. It is a very useful collection of prayer practices, as well as a guide to strategies of daily prayer which I have not found elsewhere. It makes a great gift, as well, especially for younger adults.
