Scroll down to learn about the Immortal Combat Deep Dive

Today, far too many leading Christians water down the robust teachings of our Faith. Ignoring Christ’s clear example and constant demand that we boldly confront evils, they preach an amicable, nonconfrontational, feel-good gospel. Instead of teaching the faithful to edify and enjoin the wayward, they urge them to pacify and submit . . . with catastrophic results personally, for the Church, and for society at large.

Now comes Fr. Dwight Longenecker with this potent book that shows how, by engaging in the lost art of spiritual warfare, good Christians can cure this trend and repair the extensive damage it has caused.

Here, without fear or favor, Longenecker maps out the myriad places where evil lurks in our world, shines a light on its many faces, and details the countless clever tricks it uses to hide. He delineates ten sturdy principles that must motivate all Christian warriors who hope to expunge evil and stop it from returning. And finally, he explains in fascinating detail the art of immortal combat, showing how self-sacrifice and contemplation of the Cross can bring victory over any evil, no matter how hidden or how grave.

Be forewarned: this book calls you to sanctity and is not for wimps. For sanctity is impossible apart from heroic virtue, and heroic virtue is impossible apart from spiritual warfare. As Fr. Longenecker puts it, “Find a saint, and you’ll find a warrior.”

These pages are a mighty guidebook for souls hungry to follow the way of the Christian warrior by taking up their crosses and following into immortal combat the King of the Universe, Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Dive deep into the content of this book with a six week course with Fr Longenecker.

Immortal Combat’s content is drawn from the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche, Max Scheler, Rene Girard and Scott Peck. In the six week course Fr Longenecker will go into more depth discussing what these philosophers have to teach us about pride, power and prejudice, resentment, rivalry and revenge and the scapegoat mechanism. This is fascinating stuff which will be delivered live with a half hour or so of real time input from Fr Longenecker followed by questions and discussion. The content will be at an introductory level and presented in an accessible way.

The Zoom sessions will take place on Tuesday evenings 8:30 EST.

    What an epic book. At times, Fr Longenecker uses imagery from classic mythology, Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars to describe Satan’s influence on humanity, and Jesus Christ’s mission to save us. There’s no ponderous or confusing theological verbiage to wade through here. There are passages which—if you’re honest—will smack you in the face, as you will recognize yourself in some of the sins Fr Longenecker describes. You will certainly recognize our decadent modern society as well. A quick read; I will read it again very soon and highlight some sections that are particularly relevant to my life. I also plan to buy copies to give to family and friends. Thank you, Fr Longenecker, for a timely, fascinating and Spirit-filled book.

      Thanks for such a glowing review! It would help a lot if you could take the time to publish it on the book’s Amazon webpage! Thanks
