Billy Graham’s Pastor Empowers Readers to Live Life Undefeated
For immediate release: Every day we face numerous battles in life that challenge us financially, emotionally, and spiritually. In Undefeated: God’s Strategy for Successful Living (Ambassador International; September 2015; $10.99, paperback) author and pastor Dr. Don Wilton equips readers with the proper groundwork and training to not just face, but conquer life’s battles through God’s strength.
Living in an upper-class neighborhood, driving a fast motor-car, and having lots of toys are worthless when faced with a life-threatening illness. In other words, the success you’re chasing won’t help you overcome difficulty and tragedy. Using the same strategy Jehoshaphat used in 2 Chronicles to obtain victory, Wilton provides ten steps for fighting the battles of life successfully. “These steps will help you live a life of integrity, purity, accountability, and humility,” writes Wilton. “The assurance that God has ‘got your back’ will remove any fear you may have in facing these battles head-on.”
Each chapter of Undefeated breaks down one of the ten steps for fighting life’s battles successfully which include:
- Recognize the enemy
- Listen to alarms
- Resolve to fast and pray
- Assemble a team
At the end of each chapter, a list of study questions guides readers to more intimately and specifically apply these steps to their own lives and battles. Wilton explains, the best way to overcome is to allow God to fight our battles, but there are steps everyone must take in order to summon God’s help.
As the pastor to “America’s Pastor” Rev. Billy Graham, Wilton also shares wisdom gleaned from Graham over the years. On his North Carolina porch Graham told Wilton the four core values that helped Graham’s ministry experience unmatched success. “These principles not only helped them to be successful in their ministries but in their personal lives and families as well,” says Wilton.
