Although directed to sales personnel, this concise, encouraging study guide helps any Christian. We’re all actually in sales as followers of Christ, to promote God’s glory and goodness and to advance His kingdom.
Author Cunningham follows a guide from his grandfather’s World War II battles. In Part one, he adapts jungle warfare instructions and warnings as the basis for twenty-two devotions. Each devotional section includes a verse, a battle plan, a prayer and space for writing in thoughts and personal prayers.
One jungle book section says the soldier’s enemies are nature and man. Traps may abound in a territory. In daily living, we may be booby trapped by competition, by market forces, or by spiritual enemies.
Some other sections are titled Wild Hogs and Leeches, Take Refuge, Army Ants, and Run Into Battle.
Part Two of the book contains scriptural answers to twenty-one questions about sales work and our general lives. Sample questions: How does God feel about abundance? What is a Christian to do with competition? What if my customers don’t like me?
The handy size of this hardback makes carrying the book easy for study in spare moments. A most worthy volume for everyone.
