Evangelism is a battle. Fight to win.

Look Inside the Book or Listen on Canon+

In the study of warfare, great men have concluded that there are some overriding principles which, if followed, will always tend toward success in battle, and if neglected or ignored, will tend toward defeat or even destruction. These principles have been entitled the "principles of war." But not all warfare is waged on a battlefield: every Christian is called to be a soldier. Our fight is against Satan, our objective is the acknowledgment and fulfillment of God's commands, and our ammunition is the power of the Holy Spirit. In Principles of War, longtime evangelist and preacher Jim Wilson outlines the time-tried, fundamental principles of war and explains how we can employ them in our daily spiritual battles as we fight a war which our commander in chief has already won for us.

Principles of War is the first book in the Practical Evangelism series, followed by Weapons and Tactics and Taking Men Alive.

Helpful is an understatement

Bro. Jim’s perspective and biblical approach to evangelism is exactly what I needed to get excited about sharing the Gospel, and not nervous to share it. Please get this book, everyone.

Read and reread

This book was very interesting, especially considering the life of the author and the impact his application of these principles has made. I really appreciate the method of evaluating where a believer is placed and determining if it is a strategic point. There is so much to learn and apply in this book. I've listened to it on the Canon+ app and bought this copy to give to one of our elders.

Typical evangelical trash

It's exactly what you'd expect. A playbook on how to manipulate your community into believing the rest of the world deserves to go to hell. So glad evangelicals are losing the culture. May the Wilsons' name soon become irrelevant to society altogether

Easy to read, biblical, and practical.

Principles of War: A Handbook on Strategic Evangelism


Great book on evangelism and Christian living in general, seen through the lens of the principles of warfare.

Jessica C.
Excellent. Must read and reread.

I wish that I had read this book before I went into college ministry. Far more helpful than any of the other things that I read. But, even now, as I am no longer in full time "college ministry", I find it extremely helpful. I hope to re-read it every couple of years.
