About The Book

T.D. Jakes’s He-Motions meets The Art of War in this accessible “must-read” (James Brown, host of The NFL Today) that will help modern men navigate and thrive in these unpredictable times.

As someone who goes on yearly adventure and survivalist excursions, Rev. Dr. Alyn E. Waller—senior pastor of Philadelphia’s Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church and longtime practitioner of martial arts—knows firsthand the importance of training. His work has allowed him to counsel countless men as they seek a new set of skills to thrive in today’s world and now, The Code of the Righteous Warrior illustrates Waller’s belief that ritualistic training can prepare men in all aspects of life.

Dramatic shifts in our nation’s cultural, economic, social, and political landscape have upended their lives, leaving them feeling betrayed and lost. But in this eye-opening and inspirational book, Waller draws from his Christian teachings and the lessons he’s learned from martial arts and extreme adventures to offer men innovative strategies to help them fight today’s challenges in ways that affirm their manhood. He offers ten crucial and accessible life tenets such as: prioritize the immediate threat then handle first things first; conserve your resources; and you can survive fear and pain. The Code of the Righteous Warrior empowers you to live your best life and rise above any difficulties you may face.
