By Leidell J. Gettis on October 20, 2006
Format: Hardcover
I had no idea that one of my favorite pastors was writing his first book until I came across an ad in Charisma magazine. When I went online to find out the date of its release, I was counting down to get it. Family Chrstian bookstore had one copy left and it was mine. Once I started reading this book, it was very difficult to put it down.

Dr. Zachery Tims is the pastor of New Destiny Christian Center in Orlando, Florida. I watch the ministry's broadcast via the Word Network and am always challenged and blessed by the messages that God gives him. In reading this book, Dr. Tims uses the same approach when challenging readers to tap into what call and purpose that God has on our lives. He is very transparent when he shares details of his past as a drug dealer and out of control young man who craved the attention and affection that he longed for from his father. He tells how one thing that his mom said to him when he was running the streets..."you're better than that"...made more sense as he got older. When he was incarcerated for attempted murder, those words stuck with him. His mother could not handle him at that time;yet, she still saw something special about her child.

He also gives a rather touching account of how he finally gave his life to the Lord after a co-worker took him under his wing and did not give up on him. This part of the book also challenged me in the area of mentoring those who are new in the things of God. Dr. Tims also shares about the humble beginnings of New Destiny to what it has become today. He comments that he is still looking for the Lord to do great things (paraphrase). It simply shows that he is not one to rest on anything that he has done. He points out, most humbly, that it was the Lord that did it.

I really liked this book. I finished it so quickly. When Pastor Zach was alive, I loved listening to his wisdom..It was very helpful to me. Despite the mistakes he made and how his life ended, he made a major impact in the lives of many. I read the book because I was trying to find some missing pieces in my own destiny. I thank God for guiding me to this book, for now I have the missing pieces to the puzzle. Thanks Brother Zach, may you rest in peace.

The aspect of this book I liked most was the down-to-earth style it was written in. The author captured the very essence of and relayed very well, what it is like to be caught-up in a downward spiral spinning out of control. I was elated to find out when and how Zachery came to know the LORD. The power of prayer by his former coworker Doug, proved to be the pivotal point in Zachery's teenage life. Doug,(now Pastor Doug), taught Zachery that we serve a Big God, and that no problem was too big for him to handle. My biggest regret is that I did not read this book prior to June 12, 2011 or step forward in faith and follow the Holy Spirit's unction.

It's never too late is a motivator for those with addictions. The novel is a true story that tells how anyone who is willing can recover from some of the most negative situations.

This book gave insight into the life of a troubled young man who turned his life around and became the pastor of a mega-church. However, all that glitters ain't gold.
