Essential Preparation for Security and Survival
“Dr Peter Hammond has ably laid out our duties and responsibilities in light of the Word of God and also in this crisis time of impending peril to the Church. You will benefit greatly from this book. There are many areas of preparation listed in this Security and Survival Handbook. You must read the book. You must learn. You must prepare yourself and your family. You must prepare your Church and your mission. You will never be the same after reading this book. It leaves no room for neutrality.”
Introduction - John Weaver

This May Save Lives
“This Handbook comes at a critical time and maybe; just maybe, it will help to save the lives of young men and women who have answered the Call. Am I aware of the world around me? Am I prepped, emotionally, physically, spiritually? If you do something you may live. If you do nothing, you have a very real chance of dying. If you read this Manual, you have done something. If it saves even one life, then it has fulfilled its objective.”
Foreword - Rob Brown

From the Frontline
At this time of crime, violence and instability, it makes sense to study this practical and positive handbook on security and survival. As a Mission of Christians from a military background, dedicated to serving persecuted Christians for over 35 years, Frontline Fellowship missionaries have experienced ambushes, aerial bombardments, rocket and artillery fire, thefts, terrorism, capture and imprisonment. Utilising the lessons learned through these decades in conflict areas, comes this unique, practical and compact Security and Survival Handbook.

How Prepared Are You?
If strikes and civil strife cause your water and electricity supplies to be cut off, would you have alternative supplies? If your home, or church is attacked by terrorists, would you know what to do? Does your Church, or mission, have contingency plans? On a daily basis, how secure are your loved ones and your possessions? Does your church, or mission have a Security Committee, or a person designated and responsible, to consider likely scenarios and take the necessary steps to counter those dangers? Do you have a regular sport, or exercise routine to keep you fit, alert and healthy? What can you do to strengthen the security of your home, church or mission? What steps can you take to make your congregation, or mission, a less attractive target for terrorists?
