A Veteran Looks at the Full Armor of God : An Examination of Gen. Paul's Orders to the Church at Ephesus
"For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens." We, as Soldiers in the Army of God, are under constant attack. Think about what happened to Job when Satan was given permission to test him. As far as we can see from scripture, Job is never given an explanation for what happened in his life - he may have had to console himself with that bleakest of soldierly observations: "Stuff Happens." We have to prepare ourselves for when The Lord allows "stuff" to happen in our lives. This book help the Christian who wants to be better prepared for spiritual warfare, and to become well-equipped to defend, and protect, himself as he runs his daily missions. In this book we will review, and begin training in, the combat gear that was mentioned by General Paul, in his letter to the Soldiers at Ft. Ephesus. This will begin with an in-depth look at the Full Armor of God. First by looking at the equipment of the 1st century legionnaire, as the Apostle Paul observed while under house arrest in Rome. Next we will examine the equivalent gear as carried by a modern Infantry Soldier. Finally, we will consider the spiritual implications of the gear, and see how it is to be applied, in a rubber-meets-the-road manner."

About Art George Granzeier III
This is Art Granzeier's first non-technical book. He spent ten years on active duty, in the United States Air Force, is married to another Air Force veteran and (so far) six of his children are in the military. Three of Art's sons went through U.S. Infantry School (one of whom earned the Combat Infantry Badge, ) at Fort Benning, GA. They are definitely a military family. In addition to that, he has always had an interest in the military - his mother tells him that he wanted to be in the Air Force since he was very young. As an engineer, Art tries to figure out the practical applications to every field. All of his previous books have been how-to, or educational, books, and so, he has continued with this approach. This is where the rubber-meets-the-road, and so, he wanted to provide that practical, real-world information to others who are wondering how this all works.
