Basic Battle Training
The contents of this book will take the reader to a number of areas that have been forgotten, compromised or re-defined from God’s original intent. Some of these things are obvious and will find a ready place in your soul, while others will require study and verification beyond our presentation. This said, we have included over two thousand verses to accommodate this lack and, as the Bereans of Acts 17:11, we exhort you to follow their nobility and “prove all things”.
We also realize that we will probably not find agreement on all the issues and content presented, but hope that the reader will find the tools to further the intent of the Great Commission and exercise the instruction found herein to that goal.
Though this work is designed to be read in sequence, your choice of chapters will also net that specific facet of the instruction.
