The world is growing increasingly unsafe. Terrorist attacks, natural disasters, and increasing persecution of Christians reveal it’s time the Church steps up to be prepared for trials and tribulations to come. “Be Thou Prepared” is the first book to deal with both spiritual and practical readiness for what’s bound to come, sooner or later. Carl Gallups draws on his experience as a former Florida lawman and present pastor to tackle the topic of preparedness head-on, answering many specific questions and offering practical advice to Christians on how to prepare for coming crisis. Acknowledging that our true hope lies in faith in God when we face disaster or persecution, “Be Thou Prepared” makes the biblical case for preparedness for all types of situations, not just as an option, but as a spiritual imperative.
