Jungle Warfare: A Basic Field Manual for Christians in Sales

Jungle Warfare: A Basic Field Manual for Christians in Sales
By Christopher Cunningham

This book is a great devotional book not just for those in the military or those in sales, but anyone who wants to really do their best for the Lord in the field they are in.
It is laid out in 22 daily devotions of 3-5 pages each…very manageable for those with time constraints. Each chapter includes a section from an authentic field manual of the Army on jungle warfare. The writer then begins to compare the Christian life to the life of a soldier and in particular the battlefield that people who are in sales must “fight” on each day. He ends with a prayer written for that day’s topic and several questions (with room to journal your answers) to help you apply the devotion to your life. I loved this book because it was interesting and it presented the battle we face as Christians in a realistic light by contrasting and comparing it with actual soldiers. It has a very patriotic feel to it as well and I think it would make an excellent gift for those in the Army or in sales!
