“In an age when spiritual battles seem to be increasing, Boot Camp by Jason Hardin is a welcome handbook for how to engage this battle from a biblical perspective.”
Reviewer: Michael Boling (
Rating: 5 Stars

“Hardin’s book is a sobering wake up call for men who call themselves Christian to live like a true disciple of Jesus Christ… Being an ex-US Air Force Officer, I appreciated the many military examples (from both the Bible and human history) the author uses to make points. The narrative flows smoothly from topic to topic and is a good challenge for men to stay pure and true to the Lord.”
Reviewer: Michael Taylor (
Rating: 4 Stars

“The book looks sharp and can help newer Christians while still being profitable for seasoned ones. I applaud any effort to reach men, which is such a need in our day. I pray this volume can help many! I recommend it!”
Reviewer: Jimmy Reagan (

“This book is saturated with God’s Word.This was such a refreshing look at these verses which were buffeted by many stories that both challenged and encouraged me in line with God’s Word”
Reviewer: Jonathan Roberts (
Rating: 4 Stars

“This is a perfect book for men’s fellowship meetings and could really open conversation up to set some men free just by going to Boot Camp and getting on the journey to being free!”

“Hardin’s style is light which makes the book an easy read. It is encouraging and challenging and will serve as an excellent primer for a new Believer and a challenging reminder to more mature and experienced Christians.”
Reviewer: Dave Marrandette (
Rating: 4 Stars

“Engaging in spiritual warfare is a topic and activity that all too often neglected in Christian circles.  Author Jason Hardin writes specifically about this topic directed toward men, as a way to call to engage the battle and take to heart the good news of Jesus Christ… overall, the book was a good reminder about how men are called to much greater than to sit back on their couch but to live for Christ by dying to sin.”
Reviewer: Spencer Cummins (
Rating: 4 Stars

“I fully enjoyed this book. I consider it an effective call to manhood as God created men to be.”
Reviewer: Becky Norton (
Rating: 5 Stars

“Most men should be able to relate to the boot camp, and the military aspect makes it easier to read than something academic. Part One is the part that starts with the boot camp theme and it is carried into part Two, but is strongest again in Part Three, with putting on the Lord’s armor.”
Reviewer: Rani Grant (
Rating: 5 Stars

“You won’t get anything sugar coated from this author. If you don’t want to see the demons you’re fighting, men, then don’t pick up this book.”
Reviewer: Kimberly Noble (
Rating: 5 Stars

“I would recommend this incredible book to every single man where they can be strengthened in the battlefield against the devil’s fiery attacks and schemes. I immensely loved how the book was written to assist readers in preparing for boot camp and it warned readers of the vicious tactics satan uses to entice believers.”
Reviewer: Andrew Smith (
Rating: 5 Stars

“This book is a great read. It is interesting and will capture your attention. It has things to say which I believe are very important, particularly for men as the leaders of households. I highly recommend reading this, or doing it as a book study with others.”
