1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Michael Taylor TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 25, 2012
Format: Hardcover
"Take Hold Of Your Dream" by Jentezen Franklin is mainly a motivational title for those needing a boost in pursuing their dream(s). The book is around 160 pages, contains great pictures, and addresses topics such as:

1. Seeing your dream unfold.
2. Challenges (inward and outward) to your dream.
3. Keep going when the going gets tough.
4. You are never too old to pursue a dream.
5. Letting God use your liabilities for your glory.
6. Discovering your mission in life.
7. Living in faith.

I have to agree with an earlier reviewer that while Franklin uses some biblical examples (David, Joseph, Abraham, etc.), he uses up a lot of space with catchy phrases ("it is always too soon to quit", "nothing is impossible, believe that you can", etc.) that readers have maybe heard before. To me, reading such phrases does get old and worn out over a period of time. Also, while the author develops a six stage plan to every dream, I would have liked to have seen him go into more detail (for example, in step 1: "I thought it" - Is it your thought, or God's thought? What are some suggestions or questions to ask yourself - what does God want to do in and through me? What other approaches could you use in seeking God's dream for you?).

I would have liked to have seen the author use more approaches based in the Bible, his own experience, and the experience of others, and use far fewer cliches'. The book contains excellent pictures and some good biblical material - just would have to liked to have seen more meat.

We found this book to be very encouraging as well as insightful! It helps you to see that things aren't always what they appear to be and God is ultimately in control!

Oh, how it's so easy to forego dreams because we don't pursue them. This wonderful book stirred me to go for all that Jesus made possible for me and all who believe. We can dream . . . we should dream . . . and this book is a helpful tool to help in the process. I'm very happy with it, plus I can read it quickly and put the principles into action! Love it!

THE ONE MESSAGE THIS BOOK RESOUNDS IS HOW YOUR DREAM MUST BE A "GOD GIVEN DREAM".
FROM ME TO HIM, I MUST DECREASE HE MUST INCREASE.
A DREAM THAT WILL EXPAND AND EXALT THE KINGDOM, FOR SOULS TO COME TO JESUS. HE WILL BLESS IT!

AT THE END OF THE DAY, ITS ALL ABOUT THE KINGDOM AND THAT IS A CHECK YOU SHOULD WANT TO CASH IN!
A CHECK FOR ALL THE SOULS THAT COME TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS, HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO MATTERS!
