Item description for The Catholic Warrior by Robert Abel...
"God is calling forth a vast army of saints to advance the kingdom of heaven here on earth. The battle is fierce, the rewards immense, and the adventure beyond your wildest dreams."Like a recruitment officer for the army of God, author Robert Abel issues a bold call to Catholics everywhere. The Catholic Warrior takes readers through spiritual boot camp and teaches them to draw on the power of Christ through a warrior's greatest weapons -- faith, love and prayer. It concludes with the great commission for those who are willing to accept the challenge and join the ranks.Stories of men and women performing deeds of valor on the spiritual battlefield didn't end in Bible times or with the lives of saints from centuries past. Particularly in an era when priests are few and challenges are many, Christ needs laypeople who are willing to put on the full armor of God, push back enemy lines, and advance the kingdom of heaven here on earth.Are you ready for an adventure of a lifetime? Rise to your feet, all you mighty warriors. The Spirit of God says, "Come " You are hereby commissioned

Excellent book on spiritual warfare! Apr 21, 2008
I have read this book several times because each time I do, I feel stronger in faith, more encouraged and inspired to continue being a faithful Catholic, frequenting the sacraments regularly. The author teaches us that we are not at the mercy of evil influences in this world. The Jesus we read about in the Bible is here with us now and commissions all of us to work those same miracles, to pray the way the apostles did, to experience the supernatural power of God's grace in our lives. This book always brings me back to this fact and in so doing, it makes Adoration, the Mass, Confession, all so much more meaningful and powerful for me as a Catholic. I highly recommend this book, even though I, too, was at first a little wary of some of the more evangelical style of writing about this topic but the content is solidly Catholic and well worth reading. It will enliven your faith and make you want to LIVE it!
for mature Catholics only Feb 22, 2008
I decided to read Catholic Warrior because I found it in a solid Catholic bookstore that I trust. Upon reading it I began to feel somewhat uneasy. There were times when it seemed like I was reading Rick Warren or Joel Osteen. The author uses Evangelical jargon and is quick to criticize ordinary pew sitting Catholics. I couldn't find anything glaringly theologically amiss though. Just be careful. I'd say this is only for mature Catholics who have a real grasp on the basics of our Faith.
Brought me back to the church. Aug 2, 2007
This book is great. It brought me back to the church. I have no idea how I ended up with it, but it profoundly changed my life....
Best book I ever read-Must read for all Catholics Aug 20, 2004
This is the best book I have read on being a Catholic. Robert Abel presents what the Catholic Faith is really about in an easy to read, interesting book. In each chapter he includes an interesting story related to the topic. If every catholic in the world read this book and became a Catholic Warrior, the world would be a different place to live in. The issue of the sex scandal in the Catholic Church is also presented in this book. My favorite chapter was on LOVE - what God's love is like and how our lives and everyone around us would be different if we could love like God does even a few minutes a day.
John Jan 25, 2004
A very timely book. Well written and easy to follow. I was able to resonate with much of the authors own experiences as most people pobably will. It gets back to the core of what it means to be a Catholic Warrior - a true Catholic. It is not filled with "bible thumping" rhetoric but simply states the facts and gives the reader a better understanding of the world and the reason we all seem to suffer and see such horror in the world today. It will encourage you to arm yourself against the forces of evil. This book truly makes sense in that the only way such horrors do exist is because we are engaged in a spiritual war and many people have fallen asleep and have strayed from the teachings of Jesus Christ. Whether you have strayed from the faith or are interested in understanding what it means to combat evil and spread loving kindness, this book will not disappoint you!
