Product Description

Written by a street cop, this unique publication describes the spiritual armor of Ephesians chapter 6 using a contemporary equivalent - the police uniform - giving readers fresh insight into this well-known passage. The importance of each piece of equipment is driven home through engaging, real-life police stories (responding to the infamous L.A. Riots, the devastating 1994 Northridge earthquake, working in jails, making arrests, etc). The author then gives readers a look into the courtroom of the Judge of all mankind, encouraging them to "take up the shield" of faith by placing their trust in Jesus Christ.

Deputy Tony Miano's Take Up The Shield: Comparing the Uniform of the Police Officer and the Armor of God, is a powerful look at the Ephesians text in a culturally relevant discussion of a seemingly dated text.
Tony Miano is active as a reserve Deputy with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department who also serves as Chaplain. Offering the insight of his eighteen years of law enforcement experience and involvement in scenarios like the Riverside earthquake and Los Angeles Riots, Deputy Miano's words are steeped in authenticity. Seldom do we encounter soldiers who don all aspects of the armor of God as it is relayed in Ephesians. However Deputy Miano details the armor and its relevance to peace officers and Christians today.
Relaying the stories of fallen officers, the tactical perspective of approaching suspects, and the necessity of sharing the Gospel with those who will stand before the True Judge, Miano challenges believers everywhere to wear the whole armor of God. In a scripturally sound presentation he encourages believers to be ready in season and out, to practice using the weapons of our warfare, and to stand strong in faith in Christ Jesus.
As the daughter of a retired deputy sheriff, I know Deputy Miano's words will inspire my dad to take up his armor although he no longer patrols the streets. This encouraging word is for those who are in and outside of the law enforcement family--as peace officers, soldiers, and all who protect our freedom and liberty face the enemy on a regular basis and need our prayers for protection and strength. I highly recommend this book to all within law enforcement or military families as it is relevant to today's defenders of freedom. – Suzanne Rae Deshchidn, Christian Book Previews.com

    This book is perfect for anyone in law enforcement. It Gives great examples of how our equipment we use for work compares to the armor of God and how it is used. This message is not just for law enforcement, but for anyone looking to be closer to the Lord!

    I really enjoyed this book and Deputy Miano's testimony! I am in the application process (praying for a position) and found his insight very relevant. If I am fortuante enough to make the cut I would love to serve beside other christian officers who wear the armor of God while doing their jobs.

    This book was exemplary and successfully explains the duality of police officer roles in both the legal aspect and the role of representing Christ in our jobs. The author has describe both the frustrations and rewards we can derive from doing this job for our fellow man.

    Chaplain Miano makes it plain. He's a real cop with real experience. Chaplain Miano speaks of various police situations and meshes them with scripture and Godly wisdom. His book is personal, enjoyable and faith filled. You do not have to be in law enforcement to gain insight from this book. Good book to have in the briefing room!

Author/Artist Review

Author: Tony Miano
Located in: Valencia, CA
Submitted: May 25, 2005

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am an 18-year veteran of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department (sworn and reserve). I presently serve as a department chaplain, the Director of Ten-Four Ministries, and a full-time missionary to the law enforcement community.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I was motivated by a desire to honor Christ, in everything I do. I wanted to write a book that would be a source of encouragement to all who read it.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  My hope is threefold. I hope that Christians, whether or not they wear the badge of a police officer, will read this book and be encouraged to put on the full spiritual armor of God, every day. I hope that those who are not followers of Christ will respond to the book's clear gospel message. And I hope that those who find themselves outside the law enforcement community will have a clearer understanding of what life is like behind the badge.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My favorite authors include D. Martyn Lloyd- Jones, J.C. Ryle, John Piper, Randy Alcorn, Jerry Bridges, John MacArthur, and R. Kent Hughes.
