Shield and Buckler is a factual description of the dangers faced
daily by our peace officers, armed forces, and emergency response
teams. In these pages, author Jorge Diaz, a retired veteran
of Miami-Dade County's Hialeah Police Department and current City of
West Miami Police sergeant, exposes the truth about our No. 1 enemy, and
teaches practical and proven strategies to successfully overcome his every attack.
Based on Psalm 91, this book walks the reader through each powerfully
protective verse of Scripture. Detailed accounts of men and
women escaping destruction and even death are presented to teach
readers how to apply these scriptural truths in their own personal
and professional lives.
With the events of September 11, 2001 etching a dividing line between
past and future, never has there been a more critical time to walk
in the divine protection God has afforded us. This time not
only requires us to walk in a new dimension of security; it demands
it. The spotlight has shifted from our own, seemingly trivial
existence, to that of a grander scheme. Freedoms we once took
for granted are suddenly front and center, and those who serve to
defend those freedoms are no longer viewed as individuals carrying
out a career, but as heroes fulfilling a call. Their post
is irreplaceable, their presence indispensable.
Sergeant Diaz has learned to trust in the eternal Word of God as
his shield and buckler. His personal triumphs and the solid
scriptural foundation presented in this timely book will equip Christians
with an impenetrable shield of defense against any attack of the
enemy and serve as a spiritual training manual to arm the men and
women in uniform with the arsenal they need to serve fearlessly
in the line of duty.
