Written by a street cop, this unique publication compares the various pieces of law enforcement equipment to the spiritual armor that the Bible describes in Ephesians chapter 6. The importance of each piece of equipment is driven home through engaging, real-life police stories (responding to the infamous L.A. Riots, the devastating 1994 Northridge earthquake, working in jails, making arrests, and more).

Although much has been written about this well-known passage of Scripture, little has been written from the perspective of a Christian who wears and uses the physical armor of the police officer every day, fighting both the physical battle against crime in our society and the spiritual battle against evil that all individuals are called to fight.

You don’t have to be a cop or a Christian to be encouraged and challenged by this book. In addition to building your faith, this book will serve as a helpful introduction to the men and women who protect you and your community.

About the Author:

Tony Miano is a retired twenty-year veteran of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (sworn and reserve). He also served as a department chaplain for eight years. He is the founder of Ten-Four Ministries, which provides practical and spiritual support to the law enforcement community. Tony currently serves as a missionary/evangelist, and he and his wife live in Santa Clarita, CA, with their three daughters.

Review:

"Take Up the Shield is solid biblically, has great personal stories, and is a must-read for anyone in law enforcement or for people who want to understand that they also put on a 'uniform' every day."  -- Bill Fay, author of Share Jesus Without Fear "If more Christians had a zeal for the lost and a passion for God that Tony possesses, we would have revival. I not only admire him as a man of God, but I am honored to call him a friend. His helpful book will encourage many to "take up the shield of faith."  -- Ray Comfort, author/evangelist "Take Up The Shield will prove to be invaluable as an evangelical tool in the hands of those who will follow Chaplain Tony's lead in answering the Great Commission..." -- M. Baker"This is an excellent resource for anyone interested in law enforcement, Christianity, or just a well thought-out book. I was blown away and plan to buy several copies to give to friends and coworkers."  -- Sergeant Travis Yates
