From Booklist

Jakes takes the biblical definition of faith--the substance of things not yet realized--and adds that without some effort, faith becomes nothing more than a belief in magic. Although he admonishes the trend toward prosperity preaching that equates economic well-being with blessedness, Jakes reinforces the connection between faith, good works, and responsibility. And citing biblical verses and observations by successful people--Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and athlete Deion Sanders, among others--Jakes offers sound advice on how to put faith into action. He begins by insisting on a hard self-examination and takes aim at what he considers the major barrier to success: self-imposed limitations that result from a lack of spiritual faith. Jakes applies scripture across a wide range of personal challenges, including finding a mate and achieving financial success. For those who have already achieved a measure of success, Jakes cautions against complacency and arrogance. At whatever level of achievement, Jakes urges readers to learn to open themselves to giving and receiving blessings. Recalling his own rocky road to success from a childhood of poverty to the head of one of the nation's largest religious enterprises, Jakes makes clear how he was compelled to reposition himself to grow spiritually and materially. Jakes continues to deliver a message of hope and inspiration. Vanessa Bush

Format: Hardcover
T. D. Jakes is uncomfortable with preachers who tell people that if they give a certain amount of money they will reap a harvest of results. Similarly he is concerned with people who think that faith will lead to success. These two matters are incomplete, partial aspects of truth that are sometimes taken out of context. He believes that if one is to have faith that works, one must work that faith. Believing is not enough. It is the believing that leads to action that will see the desired results. In the matter of giving, that is part of stewardship, but only a portion. One cannot give what one does not possess. It is by effective stewardship that one has resources to give.

Bishop Jakes speaks with authority because he has successfully applied the principles from Scripture he teaches in this book. Stewardship is holistic. He writes that it is usually easier for some people to concentrate energies on success in the workplace (or ministry) while neglecting success at home. It isn't intentional, but by default that relationships deteriorate. In a straightfoward manner he tells you how to overcome this neglect and excell in domestic matters without cutting back on career success.

It is refreshing to see a man of the bishop's high standards discuss the contributions made by people society might consider to be "unsuccessful." He talks about the valuable marks they made "in spite of their flaws." Amen! We all have flaws and God works through imperfect people.

One of the weaknesses of the book was his examples of role-models. I find it hard to believe a preacher of the Gospel would select some of the ones he spotlights.

Format: Hardcover
Reposition Yourself is a profound work that teaches the reader how to understand life lessons through key principles that will reposition his/her life for success. Bishop T.D. Jakes allows us to peek through the eyes of his soul and witness his journey of life as he conquered the fears in his childhood and fought his way to top to eventually lead one of the largest churches of our time.

Repositioning Yourself allows the reader to put himself/herself in the position of Zacchaeus, who repositioned himself so he could see Jesus. Through practical principles, Bishop Jakes teaches his readers how to live life without limits. Bishop Jakes provokes his readers to take a hard, face-to-face look at their lives and what they are doing to position themselves to win. Bishop Jakes shares his struggles and his wisdom on how to fight life's battles and how he eventually overcame those struggles and repositioned himself to win. According to Bishop Jakes, "You cannot win against that which you will not see and confront." He shares with his readers how he was fighting, but he was not aiming at anything. You must fight with a purpose. Intent is vital for success to be achieved in life.

In the chapter entitled, "Lost and Found", Bishop Jakes introduces us to another interesting personality in scripture - Joseph. Being the excellent orator that he is, I can hear him in my head preaching this truth. He tells us that "Joseph was bound by his circumstances, but he overcame them by using his gifts." Bishop Jakes brings us to a place in consciousness where we begin to learn how to move from the mundane to the miraculous.

I pre-ordered this book for myself. To date I have purchased two more books and sent them to loved ones and also suggested to many others to go out and purchase this great book at such a cost price. I have read many books and to date this is one of the deepest books I have read. It's for people of all ages whether you're Christian or Non-Christian, believer or non-believer. Bishop Jakes is truly a special man of God and in this book he takes you to a higher level of self-awareness. This is a very powerful book that will take you to new heights in your life, so be prepared to acknowledge the truth about yourself and be ready to discover and accept yourself for who you really are while making the necessary corrections needed to "Reposition Yourself". Everyone should read this powerful message brought to us by this Great Spiritual Messenger.

Reposition Yourself offers a powerful message for all, but especially to believers who feel stuck because of their spiritual interpretation of their circumstances. Bishop Jakes provides the keys to unlock the gates that may have kept one hemmed in and limited, and offers exciting Biblical perspectives that allows us to see our lives in a different light. If you are feeling frustrated or hopeless, this book is for you.

There is an urgency to the Bishop's message and even a warning to the slothful, but it is tempered with compassion and folksy wisdom. Bishop Jakes is one of America's best speakers, and in this work he doesn't disappoint as he draws upon his interesting life experience and rich illustrations.

My only minor nit is that sometimes the advice is a bit too basic--especially the financial advice--but you can't be too disappointed in a product that is sincerely seeking to help.

The audio book format works extremely well--an excellent choice for a long drive or a daily commute.
