MEDIA ADVISORY, Dec. 5 /Christian Newswire/ -- As Japanese culture becomes more prominent in American entertainment, mysterious and awe inspiring tales of the samurai have become more familiar to the Western world. A new book, The Way of the Christian Samurai: Reflections for Servant-Warriors of Christ (ISBN 0977223469) explores how the advice and stories of real samurai can help modern-day Christians.
This Christmas Season, autographed copies of the book are available for a special price direct from the author for only $9.99, with free shipping! This offer can be found exclusively at www.Christian-Samurai.com
As Christians, we are called to be both servants and warriors for Jesus Christ. The samurai, whose very title means "one who serves," were skillful warriors of feudal Japan who devoted themselves fully to the service of their masters, willing even to sacrifice their lives in service to their lord. Christians are also called by their Lord, Jesus, to take up their cross and follow Him, and to seek to lose their life for His sake (Matthew 16:24-25).
While fantastic legends and stories of the samurai are plentiful, The Way of the Christian Samurai draws from primary sources - notes, essays, and books written by real samurai from Japan's feudal era. Their advice on everything from overcoming fear, giving counsel to others, serving one's Lord, and self-sacrifice are remarkably applicable to the life of the modern Christian. Author Paul Nowak explores the advice of these servant-warriors of old, pointing out how the selections from samurai texts relate to Christian teachings found in the Scriptures.
The book is a matchless resource for Christians intrigued by the mythos of the samurai or Japanese culture, or for pastors and other spiritual leaders who are looking for anecdotes that illustrate Biblical ideals. Christian parents whose children enjoy anime and manga will especially find it a useful tool in understanding their children's interests and in ministering to them.
ChristianBookReviews.net rated The Way of the Christian Samurai an 'Essential' book for Christians, praising its solid foundation on the Scriptures while breathing new life into Christian ideals, especially service.
Glorified Publishers gave The Way of the Christian Samurai its "Stamp of Approval" and listed it as their featured non-fiction book.
The Way of the Christian Samurai: Reflections for Servant-Warriors of Christ is available for purchase at www.Christian-Samurai.com, as well as from booksellers Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com, and is available to wholesalers through major book distributors.
