Deep, serious, and powerfully impactful. Not for the feint of heart.

As absurd as this may sound to the enlightened modern, Ivan Throne is a Ninja. He is also deaf. He was raised in a silent world and trained in the art of concealment. Where a normal man may have used his loss of hearing as an excuse to fail, Ivan forged it into strength. His oriental martial influence is apparent in his thought patterns. However, the most fascinating thing about him is that despite that influence, he is a devout Christian. However, this is NOT directed at a Christian audience; so do not allow that to dissuade you from reading it. The world is a dark and cruel place. It is also beautiful and kind. He has established nine laws for navigating the darkness in a very serious and powerful way. In fact, it is “The Way.” Not the easy prosperity gospel of the modern churchian, but the stark reality that we live in a fallen world with all that entails. These laws are not ideas that come naturally. They are the result of years of study, training, reflection, and experience. It is not for the faint of heart, weak in character, nor lazy in spirit. If you consider yourself an athlete, a warrior, or a leader, this book is required reading to harness your dark character traits natural to all fallen men into powerful tools to impact reality. This book will gain traction and momentum as it gains exposure. Ivan has tapped into the essence of the warrior priest and warrior king. He is forging a brotherhood of like-minded men, where iron sharpens iron. It is a necessary vision for a chaotic time. This book is a manual. Once you finish it, you will immediately start reading it again. I think he has created something as unique as the man himself. I highly recommend this book. It is essential reading if you desire to navigate the darkness with clarity of purpose, firmness of conviction, and clarity of vision.
