I wholeheartedly endorse this book and strongly encourage you to carefully read its message. Mark up its pages. Devour its truths. Share it with others. Use it as an evangelistic tool. Draw from it to preach. Use it to teach small group Bible studies. You will find this book to be an invaluable resource. --Steven J. Lawson, Senior Pastor, Christ Fellowship Baptist Church, Mobile, Alabama
The modern day pseudo-sophisticates who attempt to craft a 21st-century culture featuring the autonomy of individuals who rule their own lives have blindly overlooked one basic fact of life--Jesus Christ in heaven and on earth has always been and will forever be 'King of kings and Lord of lords' (1 Tim 6:15; Rev 17:14; 19:16). Scripture unmistakably, frequently, and compellingly presents Christ's kingship in a timeless, omnicultural, and obligatory sense. Mike Abendroth's courageous portrayal of King Jesus can bring light and life to a dead and dark generation which futilely exchanges the eternal glory of God for the bankrupt, alleged grandeur of humanity. This volume captures the profound sense of Jesus' kingship which makes it a must read for all Christians and for those seeking to know the regal reality of life eternal in the kingdom of God. --Richard Mayhue, Th.D., Executive Vice President and Dean, The Master s Seminary, Sun Valley, CA
There is a reason why believers call on Jesus as our 'Lord and Savior'. Christ is the most blessed of all despots, and He is right to demand the complete submission of His people. Yet ours is a generation that desires a Savior who is less than Lord. Mike Abendroth has done a wonderful service by setting forth the kingly demands of our Lord Jesus in all their gospel sweetness. Here is hard truth that heals! Here is a surrender that liberates! Read of Jesus Christ, the Gracious Despot, and start living in the power of the gospel for a transformed life. --Richard D. Phillips, Senior Minister, Second Presbyterian Church, Greenville, SC
