Praise for The Way of the Warrior Saint

Personal achievement advice has been with us since time immemorial, but in The Way of the Warrior Saint, an American parish priest from Arizona, Fr. Chris Salamy, takes it to another level by overlaying a powerfully Christian teaching on top of the traditional wisdom of the ages. His unique message for exceptional living, through what he terms a crucifixional life, is an important concept and a must read, especially for all dads and younger men.

Former Assistant Secretary of the United States Army

To be a Christian, Paul tells us, is to be a warrior or an athlete. Addressed to young adults, Fr. Chris Salamy opens up, in a very immediate way, what it means to live a crucifixional life. Filled with practical insights and lessons, this book is both challenging and encouraging. ‘Go get some!’

Fr. John Behr

The Way of the Warrior Saint is a work of art. Fr. Chris identifies the missing link in our lives that allows us to conquer anything and live successfully. The concept of living a crucifixional life to overcome and win is genius and a tool that everyone should embody. This book is a must read for anyone that has faced challenges and wants to live more powerfully.

Wisdom is more precious than fine gold. In an era largely accepting of situational integrity, self-help ideology and the empty pain it creates, Fr. Chris clearly illuminates the path to inner greatness and a joyful life found only in sacrificial living. Quit being simple minded and ‘get some’.

The Way of the Warrior Saint is a helpful read for anyone who is trying to put faith into action. It is filled with real life challenges, engaging stories, solid principles, and practical tips to help the reader navigate life’s uncertainties with clear direction.  Father Chris distills his years of ministry experience into memorable and applicable ‘takeaways’ that can help each one of us and all of us live a life that honors God and serves others.

Having built championship teams, I find many of the principles of success in this book remarkably familiar. Living a Crucifixional Life is difficult. The path to any ultimate victory in sports or life or a spiritual pursuit always comes through a sort of death and rebirth experience. Once you have gone through this process you will always recognize it in numerous other parts of your life.

The Way of the Warrior Saint can help you make the path to something as grand as enlightenment, or as simple as being a better family member a success. Pick it up and ‘Go Get Some.’

Steve Patterson

President, Pro Sports Consulting

In The Way of the Warrior Saint, Fr. Chris draws from his personal experiences to paint a vivid and compelling case for taking up the ‘crucifixional’ way of life. Not only does Fr. Chris inspire his reader but he also gently guides them towards a fuller Christian life. I highly recommend this often humorous and bare-knuckled book by one of the Church’s preeminent pastors it will engage every reader who wants to live courageously for Christ.

Father Evan Armatas

Host of Orthodoxy Live on Ancient Faith Radio and author of Toolkit for Spiritual Growth: A Practical Guide to Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving

In this inspirational work, Fr. Chris explores the three fundamental relationships of man – himself, others, and work – through the lens of Crucifixional Living. Providing practical steps along the way, the reader is challenged with each chapter to enact these steps in their lives to unlock the greatness that lies within. Fr. Chris proves himself a maverick amidst a sea of mindlessness, providing a voice of reason during what continue to be challenging times.

About the book…
The Way of the Warrior Saint is the book that heralds self-sacrifice, or, crucifixional living, as the cure for the modern fallacy of the easy life. Modeled on Jesus’ victory over Death through His voluntary suffering on the Cross, it spotlights real-life heroes who through self-sacrifice became extraordinary individuals. Readers hunger for something more than a trite self-help book and fluffy coaching. The Way of the Warrior Saint is a counterintuitive approach to life that has been proven effective for centuries. Based in biblical wisdom, it offers people of all faith traditions the ability to connect. Written in a conversational tone for a general adult audience of any educational background, readers will find the anecdotes, imagery and biblical exegesis both moving and relatable.
