Ken Harrison ä 0 Free downloadOne of my avorite chapters was the one about prayer especially the parts that talked about perseverance and how prayer is worship I liked how the author used stories and anecdotes to illustrate his points It is a thoughtfully written book I received this book or review Ken Harrison did a very nice job at writing this book I ound myself eagerly looking orward to the next time I would have some space to sit and read That being said I don t think this is the PERFECT book on biblical manhood yet it s still one that I still recommend There were certainly uite a ew places where I uestion the exegetical process used And The Conclusions That Were the conclusions that were but even with this as the case I still believe this is one of the better if not best books or men to read in regards to becoming who God is calling us to be and living that out daily I thought the manner in how Harrison set up and executed the low of his thoughts and arguments were excellently constructed and executed It was also a major bonus to read personal stories The Leadership Gap: What Gets Between You and Your Greatness from all throughout his lifeInurther terms of content I think you d be pretty safe even just skipping the 2nd half of chapter 16 The Judge The chapter starts off well but the interpretations and applications Revelation 2 3 within the second half of the chapter I believe will actually cause harm than good Let me explain I understand the importance of trying to help men step up and take assertiveness in their lives and their The Leadership Gap faith it s a lesson American Christians in general could probably learn of in general However to make some of these claims which I m guessing arerom the works of J Vernon McGee since he uotes him a Zero to Five: 70 Essential Parenting Tips Based on Science (and What I've Learned So Far) few times in the book in what Revelation is clearly saying and the applications thatollow is to hand a Serenity Role Playing Game freshly sharpened blade to a person who has no idea how to use it Someone s going to hurt themselves For example to identify a woman who may beilling and lourishing in a leadership position of some sort and in a CHRIST exalting way as a Jezebel simply because of her gender and NOT because of or in relation to the theologyallegiance to Christ or someone else that she teaches is a bit immature and misguided In Revelation the woman is called Jezebel because of her alse teachings and leading people AWAY Tressed to Kill (Southern Beauty Shop, from Jesus Yet it came across in this book that it was a mixture of this AND theact she was a woman and there s no solid Scriptural basis here Tressed to Kill for that conclusion by any means I can easily see and inact have already seen this in my life where people dismiss what God is doing around them simply because it s through a vessel of whom they personally don t approve By the way this isn t a new phenomenon by any stretch It s all over the place For example there was Cyrus in Isaiah God was using Cyrus to accomplish what He wished much to the shock surprise and even horror of Israel This idea also surfaces in another orm in Romans 9 when Paul explains that not all of the physical nation of Israel is part of the true Israel They had the misunderstanding that they were guaranteed a spot simply because they were part of the nation of Israel you can see this addressed time and again in the New Testament see or example Matthew 31 12 In other words they cringed at the "fact that God wasn t doing what they thought He should be God wasn t doing what thought He should be the way they think He should be doing it I digress It s awfully dangerous to say things in ways like this and arm men to go out and potentially work AGAINST the Holy Spirit simply because one of them isn t the one doing itI m not trying to discredit the book Like I said overall I really enjoyed the.
