As brothers, Xavier and Evan are used to battling each other but now, they’re discovering that there is a much bigger battle going on all around them and that it’s their turn to fight. The Prince Warriors is an epic, fiction, adventure trilogy geared towards kids written by Priscilla Shirer that brings to life the invisible struggle ensuing in the spiritual realm and uncovers some of the truths from Ephesians 6:10-18.

The Prince Warrior stories are fiction but embedded within the books are some secrets – little hints that can lead you to discover and understand spiritual truths. I hope you’ll have some great conversations with someone your kids about what these things mean and how they can live victoriously as a Warrior for God.

If you are Christian who claims to live by the principles of God’s Word, you should read this book. All too often, professing Christians act as if certain biblical principles are somehow suspended during election season. This should not be the case.

In Before You Vote, David Platt urges every Christian to ask seven critical questions before casting a ballot. These questions are based on biblical truths, not political talking points. As a pastor of a church in our nation’s capital, Platt’s message is non-partisan, practically helpful, and biblically-saturated.

Our current political climate presents unique challenges for Christians, particularly in an election season. Some Christians know exactly how they’ll vote and can’t imagine why any Christian would vote differently. Other Christians struggle with how to vote, or even whether to vote. In the end, elections in our country tend to be a time of confusion and disunity among many Christians.

His seven questions are:
1. Does God call me to vote?
2. Who has my heart?
3. What does my neighbor need?
4. What is the Christian position?
5. How do I weigh the issues?
6. Am I eager to maintain unity in the church?
7. So how do I vote?

This book will help you exercise your vote with humble conviction in a way that magnifies Christ, maintain unity in the church, and seek the good of all people. It’s a privilege we have to vote on how we’re led, how laws are made, and how people are cared for according to those laws. Remember this is not just an opportunity from God; we have a level of accountability before God and this is a grace God’s given us.

Let’s pray, vote, and stand for Biblical values and Biblical truth!
