Review: Tactical Bible Stories: Personal Security Tips from the Bible

Personal Security Tips from the Bible
By Rob Robideau

Today I am going to review a book authored by a reader.  Make sure to read the end to see how, for one day, you can get a free copy of this book.


Description from Amazon:

 “Tactical Bible Stories” takes the most important aspects of personal security and uses Bible illustrations to make them fun and easy for anyone to understand, remember, and apply.

Did you know that the Bible has examples of tactics, concepts, and ideas that are still used and taught by modern security professionals?

Tactical Bible Stories” will help you learn how to prepare for, avoid, and deal with violent confrontations.


My Take:

Navigating self-defense and Christianity can be tricky but Rob does a very good job.  He introduces topics using scripture and paints a picture of how this self-defense principle was being used at the time the scriptures were written.  This book is aimed at someone who may have some understanding of self-defense concepts but, as Rob puts it, “was written for the readers that may not be a part of the typical “self-defense circles”.”  I consider myself fairly tuned in when it comes to self-defense and Rob still made a few points that I either hadn’t considered previously or had seen from a different perspective.

He explains that there is far more to self-defense than shooting, fighting or using any tactical gear. He covers training and gear, but also covers awareness, mindset and touches on avoidance and de-escalation as well.  However, he makes it clear that your goal is to keep you, your family and friends safe; avoiding a fight if possible, but finishing it if it is brought to you, to meet your goal of keeping your loved ones safe.

If you or someone in your life is new to self-defense concepts or has some doubts about it being biblical, this would be a good book to read.

“Tactical Bible Stories” will be launched on June 5th and Rob will be giving away the Kindle version free all day.  He will be selling the paperback version at his cost.  You don’t need to own a Kindle to read a Kindle e-book, there are free versions available for PC, Mac, Smart Phones and Tablets


  1. Sounds interesting. I’ll have to check it out. Thanks!

  2. Sounds great I can’t wait to get it. Sometimes our ideas of ‘defense’ is shoot first and ask questions later and in some cases it is right. However to be able to be mentally prepared before the situation AND handle the mental after it is over is always different.

    I thought years ago I could handle myself until someone came up behind me with what I thought was a gun. Said give me your purse..put it down. I put my arm as far out as I could, dropped the purse and ran my legs off. Turned out a few hours later the little thug was caught with a pair of numchucks. He had beaten an elderly lady almost to death. He was sentenced. The lady never walked again.

    I thought I was ready…that moment I realized that if I had SEEN it coming I would have been better prepared…it was the attack from behind where I didn’t see the person. There are many things these years later I feel I still need to learn and welcome a chance to do so.

    Thank you!

      It’s human nature to second guess, but it sounds like to me you did the best thing. This book goes over defense topics such as avoidance and de-escalation, which are also very important to know. You made it home to your family that day, mission complete.

  3. First I’ve heard of this one. Thanks for the heads up. :)
