JESUS WAS AN AIRBORNE RANGER
The Raid that Rescued Us. The Mission that Defines Our Lives.
You are trapped behind enemy lines. You feel it every day. Powerful forces want to destroy you and those you love. Completely surrounded, you see no means to escape.
Sadly, the Jesus we often picture is too timid to help—more like a daytime talk show host than a dangerous Rescuer.
Who would follow—much less risk everything—for such a leader?
Get ready to see Jesus like you’ve never seen him before—a battle-scarred Combatant who stared death in the face and won. This is no Sunday-school Jesus, meek and mild. This is the Warrior Christ who has descended from the heavens, defeated the Enemy, and rescued humanity. Now, he calls us to continue his mission and fight for others—our families, our communities, and the world.
In Jesus Was an Airborne Ranger, Army Chaplain John McDougall offers an alternative to the soft, gentle caricature of Jesus. Only the Warrior Christ can impact our broken world. And only in following him can you find the life of purpose you’ve always wanted.
In this fresh, exhilarating take on the story of redemption, Captain McDougall retells the life of Jesus, and the mission of his followers, as analogous to a special operations incursion behind enemy lines. "For too long, our churches have portrayed Jesus as a Wimp who is far too gentle to confront evil and much too tolerant to correct injustice," declares McDougall. "Men are not inclined to follow this Sunday School Jesus. But there is an alternative: to restore the long-lost concept of Christus Victor - Christ the Conqueror." Combat-seasoned and seminary trained, McDougall weaves stories from the front with biblical teaching as he reframes the gospel in terms that action-oriented readers will be drawn to, learn from and be highly motivated to follow in their daily lives. - Publisher
