Do you want more spiritual "muscle" in your life? Muscle that will add to your power for living an effective Christian life? If your answer is "yes," you'll want to read Put Muscle In Your Faith. The author bases his book of exercises to develop spiritual muscle on the lives of Old Testament characters. Foremost among them is Elijah whose life and exploits demonstrate important principles of godly living. Elijah, who faced numerous challenges, overcame them by developing spiritual muscle and by overpowering those who stood in the way of true spirituality and genuine faith in God. In a day when Christians focus mainly on truths of the New Testament, Put Muscle In Your Faith. is a refreshing return to Old Testament truths and examples. The human flaws in the lives of Elijah and other characters are overshadowed by their inspiring deeds in the name of the Lord. Because they knew God is real and powerful, their close walk with God made their own lives real and powerful as well. Retired US Army Chaplain (Colonel), William De Leo knows all about developing muscle. Having served more than twenty-five years in the military, he had to undergo rigors of physical training to be able to serve effectively. The title of his book has been literally carried out in his own life, both physically and spiritually. While in the Army he developed family care materials that have become standard throughout that branch of the services. In 2005 he became regional director of CareNet Counseling Centers in southeastern North Carolina.
