Review 1 for Rules of Engagement: Preparing for Your Role in the Spiritual Battle
Date:September 12, 2012
The very first time that I read the title: Rules of Engagement: Preparing for Your Role in the Spiritual Battle, I thought I was getting a book on how to better understand the spiritual warfare battle. But let me tell you, I got that and more! It's a book on how to build character and veracity to fight the war. Spiritual warfare is something that we are constantly facing in our Christian walk, therefore; it is extremely important to wear the armor of God at all times. Prince shows us how important it is to FIRST be obedient to God.
When we face difficulties in our lives, it is so much easier for us to to want to fix things by ourselves. Sometimes we experience hardships so that we learn to acknowledge the importance of seeking God's help; as a matter of fact, Derek Prince shows us that being obedient is one of the most important things when we face spiritual battles.
This book is filled with excellent advice and several examples of how Biblical men went through struggles - so that they could learn a life lesson. For example; there is Jacob who had a physical struggle with the Angel of the Lord - this taught him to give up his independence. Like Jacob, we must learn to surrender.
CHARACTER is another important requirement; BE VIGILANT! Prince states that we must always be aware that the enemy seeks to destroy. And like a soldier, we must learn personal discipline. Here is an example:
"Be sober, be VIGILANT; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour" (1 Peter 5:8).
Prince also states: "Prepare for service by remaining submissive to God and training our souls to stay in submission to our spirits."
"Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love." (1 Corinthians 16: 13-14).
You will find learn in Rules of Engagement: Preparing for Your Role in the Spiritual Battle, that OBEDIENCE, VIGILANCE, and PREPARATION is important to be in the army of the Lord, and like a soldier prepares for battle - we too must learn to prepare to face all spiritual battles that come our way. So how do we do this? We must seek God daily through prayer and supplication. I definitely recommend this OUTSTANDING book.

This is an excellent book. This book helped me to deeper understand as well as deeply moved me to a desire to to die to self and live for Christ, which is what is needed to effectively serve Christ. I value all of Derek Price's writings.
