The Power of Weakness is the latest offering from Keith Giles and it was both a pleasure and encouragement to read. In a church culture that sees sickness and poverty and weakness as something to be avoided and prayed about, Keith takes us back to the Bible to demonstrate that God has always used people when they were at their worst or those who were least "qualified".

The bulk of The Power of Weakness is an examination of the lives of a number of well-known figures from the Bible, men like Moses and Solomon and even Jesus Christ Himself, to show the glory of God in achieving great things through the weakness of man. After looking at the compelling evidence from the Bible, Keith turns to a more practical application, each and every individual Christian. If God can and has done great things through the weakness of men like Gideon and Paul, certainly He can and does through weak vessels like you and I. In a church culture that glorifies and exalts the most educated, smoothest speaking and best credentialed men, Keith reminds us that it is rarely the obvious (in our eyes) vessels that God works through.

As Keith points out, there is a reason that God glories in using the weakness of man to accomplish His great works, namely that it leaves no doubt in the mind of those who witness or read about these events as to where the honor and glory belong. It is not because of human talent or skill or intelligence but God alone who accomplishes His tasks. Along with the biographical examples, Keith points us again and again to Scripture to demonstrate his central thesis of God glorying in weakness. This message is not an unusual one in the church but it is one of the many cases where our rhetoric doesn't match our practice.

I received this 100 page ebook as part of a giveaway as a result of buying Frank Viola's new book. Gee, I hope the other gifts I downloaded are as good as this one.

Pastor Giles takes us through the stories of key Biblical figures: Jesus, Solomon, Moses, Samson, David, Gideon to name a few. He demonstrates using Scripture how they only "succeeded" by emptying themselves to fully surrender their lives to God. Samson, for example, was only powerful because the Holy Spirit equipped him with incredible strength.

This book comes at an important time for the church where I believe we may have forgotten this critical aspect of faith. God can only use us when we let Him by depending on Him. All of these Biblical people were weak so they depended on the Father to provide the power.

Well written with strong Biblical references. My only suggestion for improvement would be if we saw some modern day examples of this phenomenon. I get the concept and want to do it, but I'm still not quite sure how to. What do I need to do when I wake up each day to be "weak" and therefore depend on Jesus?

Highly recommended.

That's what I tell myself whenever a friend of mine recommends a book. and my friend was right. This is the second book I have read that was authored by Keith Giles. Rather, the second one I've read and loved. He gets to the heart of the matter, defines it clearly and does it without raising my defenses. It's kind of like when Jesus was talking to the woman at the well. He told her the truth about herself but instead of feeling wounded she felt freed. I recommend this to my Christian friends who are looking for a closer walk.

I downloaded The Power Of Weakness by Keith Giles after listening to an interview with him on podcast at Revelations Radio Network. Keith is a breath of fresh air in the church today, applying the teachings of the Jesus and his apostles from the beginnings of the church. He runs a house based church, not taking a wage or trying to build an super ministry with all the hype and money gathering that is choking the life out of ordinary christians today. I would recommend the Power of Weakness to every christian and non believer, it would be a huge wake up call to the 'televangelists' and other snake oil salesman out there today, possibly bringing them to their knees if they were to truly read this book and apply its principles.

Keith's main point in this wonderful little book is that we need to get away from our strengths and abilities and surrender to Christ so He can bring His strengths and abilities to our life.

Thankyou Keith for your humble and heart opening tome.
