God is in the process of restoring Kingdom mentality to the church, and those who get it willmove under the blessed order of God s government. This book is both an indication of this process and a clarification of the strategic issue of honor as it relates to how Christians work together in church. Chapter 2, entitled The Funnel From Heaven, is an absolute must-read for those who not only are wondering why the fivefold ministry is not working as we had hoped, but for all who have not seriously considered this vital approach to church life. Danny s contribution toward the Kingdom Church will help us all navigate this adventure of Kingdom life together. ---Jack Taylor, President, Dimensions Ministries

This is more than a book; it is a manifesto of reformation, destined to become a classic that will be a reference for generations to come. Culture of Honor is a must-read for every serious believer. It is essential that this book find its way into every seminary in America! ---Kris Vallotton, Senior Associate Leader of Bethel Church

I had been involved in charismatic church in CA , but they did not know this important teaching.
Also, they knew in there "head" but not in their "heart." I always thought Bethel people looked special and different.
If you want to find the key to become more generous, gracious in God's way than this is the key element that you need to get.
I highly recommend this book. You NEED THIS BOOK ! This is great book =).
I heard Danny Silk on youtube say: "I don't care if you are a child, an elder in the church, or Saddam Hussein. I will not let your presence determine who I am, when I am around you." Danny says we need to honor ALL people, even if we determine they don't deserve it or earn it. If I am an ambassador from heaven on earth, I must represent my king in everything I do, not myself. I think Danny Silk would agree, and his book is a light in this dark world that could cause international transformation...that is if someone chooses to soak in it's fire.
Danny says real intimacy is "In-to-Me-you-SEE." How wise is that? Living in a culture of honor is tested when someone breaks the rules and becomes an offense to us. That's when we see how the rubber meets the road, how honor is tested. We can react in fear, which is a relationsip built on rules; or we can allow for freedom and love, an honor-based culture built on relationships. You are either rule-driven or love-driven. You are one or the other. No wonder they loved Jesus so! I remember when He entered Jerusalem to die, and the pharisses said the whole world is going to follow Him if we don't stop him. We need to kill Him NOW. Praise Father for His Glorious Son!
I liked the story told about The Civil War. When Abraham Lincoln met Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom's Cabin, he said: "So you're the little woman who wrote the book that made this great war." But Stowe's brother and fellow abolitionist, Henry Ward Beecher, credited another man. He said: "Reverand John Rankin and his sons did it."
Rankin's life was shaken by the execution of Gabriel Prosser and 27 of his conspirators, who simply conspired to escape slavery to find freedom. This shook John Rankin to the core, and influenced him to create a culture of honor in America.
I like 3 definitions Danny Silk leaves with us: 1. Revolution: forcible, pervasive,and often violent change of a social or political order by a sizable segment of a country's population (Encarata Encyclopedia). 2. Reformation 1. to improve (a law or institution) by correcting abuses (Farlex Dictionary). 3. Transformation: A thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance (Encyclopedia.com). If you decide to bring a culture of honor from heaven to earth, there will be great resistence, but be of good cheer, for Jesus has overcome the world. We have eternal life if we are in the Son. How can we not respond? No Honor, no Kingdom. Know Honor, know Kingdom. A culture of Honor can provide a foundation that will never be shaken, though the mountains fall and tumble into the sea. You are a leader whether you like it or not. Real leaders cultivate honor at all times and in all places. Step up to the plate and get in the game. ALL in. Or all out.
Silk conveys great pastoral care with his insights into handling potentially volatile situations, expressing the superior goal of seeing people released to live Godly lives, not further binding them to their sin through shame.
I know of no other book in modern history that dares approach the "golden calf" of modern church structure, and gently invites leaders to revise their operations to conform to a Biblical standard.
Silk is tactful yet direct, loving yet serious. I further appreciate his ability to drive home loftier points with real-life examples—reminds me of Jesus' communication style. Quite effective and memorable.
I heartily recommend this clarion call to summon leaders to their best days! May we walk in the gracious, revolutionary love of Jesus as we bring the realities of Heaven to earth. • ch:
Dany Silk writes it in a simple, story telling way. But the power comes not from the words, but from love, passion, and Holy Spirit that's behind them. To see revival and heaven invade Earth, that's what is and will be happening here in the South Pacific!!
