From the Inside Flap
Amid this hustle and bustle in the main square by the fountain stands a young man of about 17 years old, his neck and his hands bound firmly with coarse ropes. From the rope burns across his wrists and around his neck, you can tell that the merchants have not been kind as they hurried to reach the market in time to put their prize on display. They have heard a rumor that Potiphar, a high-ranking official from Pharaoh's court, is planning to make a purchase today.
The young man is dazed from so many days of walking, His legs keep buckling beneath him, his arms are weary from the constant tugging and his mouth is parched from the dry desert winds. He is in a foreign land where the people speak in an incomprehensible tongue. With nothing to his name, not even a loincloth to cover his modesty, he is bound and displayed, completely naked. In a short while, he would be inspected like an animal against his will, and sold into a lifetime of slavery.
And yet, God Himself calls this young man, named Joseph a successful man!
Chapter 1, pages 1-2
God's definition of success is not what you have, but rather who you have! It is the presence of the Lord in your life that makes you a success! Jesus' unmerited favor will protect, deliver, prosper, restore and transform you into wholeness. His unmerited favor will cause you to enjoy success beyond your natural intelligence, qualifications and ability!
From the Back Cover
God wants you to succeed in every area of your life! And with His presence in your life, you can. His grace or unmerited favor can swing open doors of opportunities and place you at the right place at the right time for His blessings. Even if you lack the necessary qualifications, His unmerited favor can propel you forward.
Discover in Unmerited Favor how everything that you touch can be blessed and how you can enjoy good success. Learn about what Jesus has accomplished on the cross for you, and how, through His perfect sacrifice, you can lead an overcoming life as God's beloved.
Packed with new covenant truths on the unmerited favor of God and how you already have access to it through Jesus' finished work, Unmerited Favor is a must read for anyone who wants to live the good life-God's way. It's time for you to stop depending on your own efforts to succeed, and to start depending on Jesus and Jesus alone for every success. Start living out the dreams that God has birthed in your heart today!
"May grace (God's Favor) and peace (which is perfect well-being, all necessary good, all spiritual prosperity, and freedom from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts) be multiplied to you in [the full, personal, precise, and correct] knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord."
-2Peter 1:2, AMP

Reading his first book, 'Destine to Reign' was a minor revelation to me and I could not wait to read this second volume by Joseph Prince. If I can summarize his first book with a phrase, 'No Condemnation in Christ', I can similarly title this book as 'Practicing the Presence of Christ'. Two books expound how these two concepts are closely related and what they mean for Christians in their everyday lives.
Pastor Prince books are easy to read because they are mostly based on his real time sermons. But don't let the colloquial style fool you. The issues he raises are extremely serious. They go to the very center of Christian faith as lived everyday by Christians around the world. Is Pastor Prince right?? Is his teaching really the closest to the Pauline Gospel?? That is the question each individual Christian has to carefully consider for himself with his Bible wide open.
One conclusion I can draw is this: If Pastor Prince's preaching is correct, the way to lead a victorious Christian life is surprisingly SIMPLE! Read this book and find out.
1.) Is it biblical?
I can answer this with a definitive yes. I only use a KJV translation and found most of Pastor Prince's conclusions to be completely in line with what Scripture teaches. When it comes to modern Christian preachers Pastor Prince is in a league of his own, not just when it comes to the amount of revelation he receives from the Lord, but when it comes to the scriptural backing for it. Some Christians have issues with the idea of "jumping around", that is, going to other Scriptures in the Bible to verify what one scripture is saying, the feeling is that by doing so, someone can make the Word of God say whatever they want. The sheer volume of scripture that Pastor Prince uses however negates such logic. To be blunt, you probably couldn't find a more well researched book in all of Christianity (aside from the Bible of course)
2.) are there any mistakes?
Yes actually, there is one to note of. However I should mention that it is when Pastor Prince states his own opinion, and that this mistake doesn't in any way hamper or diminish the overall message of this book. The mistake occurs in one of the middle chapters when the Pastor seems to admonish that the gospel of grace should be preached to sinners as a way of bringing them to Christ.Read more ›
One key thing I have gotten out of this book is - in the Old Testament when you took your sacrifice to the priest to be forgiven of your sins the priest did not examine the one brining the gift he only examined the lamb that was to be slain for the forgiveness of sins. This points to Jesus and what he did on the cross for us. Remember God's not looking at your sins He's looking at the Lamb of God who took away the sins of the world - past, present, and future! That's all of them before there even was one committed!

a must have for your library this season!
In Unmerited Favor, Joseph Prince tackles this inconsistency head on. If we choose to rely on self-effort and deserved merit, we fall from the high place of God's grace back into the law. Jesus said, "one thing is needful" and that is to sit at his feet and behold him. For many of us sometimes the hardest thing to do is to sit down. If I were to sum up Unmerited Favor in two words, they would be stop trying, as in, stop trying to succeed in your own strength, stop trying to earn God's favor, stop trying to make it happen, stop striving, stop struggling, and trust him for everything. You need to stop because for as long as you continue to trust in your self-effort, you're operating outside of grace and cursing your work.
You can read Unmerited Favor without first having read Destined to Reign, but I recommend you read both in the order they were written. If Destined to Reign is all about what Jesus had set you free from, then Unmerited Favor is what he has set you free into.
