Christian men today are unprepared for the reality and scope of spiritual warfare they face. Some go about their lives naively ignoring the power that spiritual forces like sin and Satan have in their lives. Joe Barnard has written a book to help men not only wake up to the existence of sin in their lives, but, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to tackle it head on.


This may seem like a daunting task. Although few would admit it publicly, privately many share the deep anxiety that the resources of the gospel are inadequate to deal with – not the guilt of sin – but the power of sin. Sin may look like an insurmountable problem when measured by the stature of a fallen man, but to God, sin is no more than a weed planted in sand.


This book is for men who are willing to fight and it will arm them for the task at hand.

With tactical clarity Barnard describes the Enemy’s devices and presents practical strategies for waging war with indwelling sin.  a call to spiritual arms that should be read by every Christian.

Reagan Rose, Founder of Redeeming Productivity

Joe Barnard writes that Christian men today are alarmingly unprepared for the daily battle against the lusts and sinful desires in each man’s heart. His book Surviving the Trenches gives you hope that the victory over sin has already been won, but it underscores the deadliness of the battle to claim that victory as a daily personal experience. Surviving the Trenches deals honestly with the battle—it is difficult and dangerous, and there are no shortcuts for easy victories. As the Royal Navy maxim notes, ‘If you want peace, prepare for war.’ Joe’s book prepares men for the battle with an insight that is learned, biblical, challenging, and captivating. From 10 rules for the battle to the lies sin uses against all of us, Surviving the Trenches shoots straight with a clarity that is refreshing and informative. And you will understand the battle you are in and how to persevere to claim the victory Christ has won. You won’t be able to put this book down, and you can’t afford to miss its message.
