Tempted, Tested, True

From the opening pages where one is introduced to the whole notion of temptation (for those still ignorant of its existence), TEMPTED, TESTED, TRUE shines the brilliant beam of consecrated intelligence and dedicated creativity into the deepest recesses of the enemy’s camp.  Unashamedly, the authors call sin, sin … and provide a time-tested blueprint for how it can be successfully defeated on a daily basis.

Arnie Cole (CEO of Back To The Bible) and Michael Ross (award-winning journalist and bestselling author) combine their insights and God-given talents once again to provide an indispensable resource for living the Christian life in a victorious manner.  We are told in Scripture to “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”  (James 4:7).  Cole and Ross have produced a handbook that shows you, step by step, just how that may be accomplished.  And I thank them for it.  If you are honest with yourself, you will recognize, as I have, how crucial it is to have such a work close at hand.  This isn’t a book to be read and shelved; it needs to be a constant ready reference.  Because our adversary never slumbers nor sleeps.
