About 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.
SUIT UP. It’s time to enter the fight with the first and greatest Airborne Ranger.

   This book has an intriguing title, but the book is not saying Jesus was actually an airborne ranger. The idea of the book is that too often we present a Jesus who seems like a meek little wimp, when he was far from that. The author has run into many guys who just couldn't relate to the Jesus that they were presented with, so he wrote a book to show that Jesus wasn't at all a wimp, but was far from a wimp.  The author uses several stories...

I have to say this is not normally a book I would read, I chose to review it because my dear hubby seen it in a CBD magazine and was very interested in this book. Growing up the picture of Jesus that was portrayed to me was a very gentle and meek man that journeyed thru life to save us from our sins. This book takes a deeper look at Jesus Christ, it looks at the spiritual battle that is going on unseen by us. He was more than just...

Jesus Was An Airborne Ranger by John McDougall is not your average book about Jesus, by any means; but then the cover should serve as a warning label. It was written by a chaplain of the U.S. Army Rangers, and as we all know, a Ranger is trained for serious missions only. Those in the armed forces will appreciate the straight-forward attitude and format: to civilians it may be an acquired taste.This style of book may be able to reach people...

â??"Then there is Jesus Himself.  Too often He is portrayed in the media as some kind of otherworldly space cadet, or a â??gentle-Jesus-meek-and-mild who would cast well as a model for a shampoo advertisement.  But you wonâ??t find this Jesus in the Bible.â?  If you are looking for this type of Jesus or are just curious, I highly recommend Jesus Was An Airborne Ranger.  Another book review on a topic at a providential...
