Terrific resource and tool for the Believer!
September 29, 2012
Derek Prince was a contemporary and acquaintance of C. S. Lewis. He was a noted teacher, preacher, scholar and philosopher, among other things. His love of Jesus and the Scriptures was unabashed, and he spent his life encouraging God's people to grow in the Word.
Rules of Engagement is a culmination of teaching letters that he wrote over the course of ten years. The book is broken into four major sections ... Building a Soldier's Character, Holy Spirit Training, Battle in the Heavenlies, and Enduring to the End. Each section has six to nine chapters, which read along the lines of a daily study and finish with a life application, a memory verse, and a faith response. There are a total of thirty chapters, so ideally, a month of study.
Prince's love for the Lord and his passion for sharing the truths of Scripture are evident in the pages of Rules of Engagement. His instructions and encouragements are soundly based on Scripture and are clear and concise. He walks the reader from submission to "finishing the course" without ever sounding condescending or holier-than-thou.
I thoroughly enjoyed my read/study through this book. It's a tremendous resource and asset; a definite plus to any believer's collection!
