Book Description

The Apostle Luke makes mention of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the book of Acts which immediately produced results. Acts chapter two, verses fourteen to forty-one illustrates the results of one being empowered by the Holy Spirit. Immediately after being endowed with power from on High, Peter stood up, raised his voice, and declared unto the multitude the Word of the Lord. A direct consequence of this newly received power was that all who accepted the words from the “Divine Empowered” Peter were baptized and the Scriptures records that on that day alone there were added about three thousand souls to the Body of Christ. Could Peter have delivered such a compelling dialogue without Divine Empowerment? If he could, or if he did, would he have produced the same results? One could logically argue that he could not and if he did, the results would not be as grand. This book is a assemblage of six perspectives sociorhetorically analyzing the subject of Divine Empowerment as seen in Acts 2. We, the authors, each aspired to examine Luke’s understanding of the Old Testament concept of the Divine empowerment of leaders. We explored carefully and thoroughly an analysis method of interpretation referred to as the “fulfillment of prophecy.” Luke strategically used Old Testament prophecy (specifically found in Joel and Psalms) in validating Jesus’ Great Commission in preaching the Gospel to Gentiles and in the necessity of being endowed with power from on High. The chapters in this book were individually created for and as a scholarly assignment. We, the authors, have decided to preserve the manuscripts in their original format with the intentions of capturing the initial revelation on the necessity for Divine Empowerment and its transformational power upon leaders and followers. It is our prayer that the eyes of your understanding becomes and continues to be enlightened as you read and examine the Word of God.

5.0 out of 5 stars Description from one of the authors April 7, 2012
Format:Paperback
Under the category of leadership and religion, Karl Michel, Carrie Gilligan, Christine Gibson, Joseph Holloway, John Miller, and I decided to explore the concept of leadership empowerment from a different perspective than is traditionally seen in most leadership texts. Looking at it from a social-rhetorical model, we looked at how the concept of divine empowerment could be translated into modern leadership theory and practice.

I wanted to share a more detailed description of the book from our lead on this project - Karl Michel:
