Customer Review

on October 28, 2013
It is interesting to read this new book. Destined To Reign seemed like the book Joseph Prince was destined to write. But time has moved on. Some authors find a formula and just keep cranking them out. But it doesn't seem as if Prince has chosen to go that way.
Probably the first thing to notice is the book has a subtitle; printed on both the cover and the title page: 7 Keys To Freedom From Fear, Guilt, and Addiction. So, that is a pretty good clue where the author is heading. Try not to buy the book based on a preconceived idea of what Joseph Prince would write.
There may be only seven keys, but there are about 340 pages, 21 chapters divided into 7 parts.
I'd say the "happy!" part of the book is in the last 2 parts. Therefore, don't set the book aside too soon. There is still good stuff to be read in the other parts of the book. I liked; "Grace--antidote for the poisoned mind", how Jesus defines the word "fear" as "worship", His love is not an intellectual exercise; it is to be experienced, "Learn to see as God sees", ... and those are just in the earlier chapters.
I found the last part, "Find Rest In The Father's Love", to be the best of the book for me. Prince relates an interpretation of the parable of the prodigal son that is close to the view I have always held. It seemed to me that maybe this book had a little more to say about the love of the Father than previous books.
Although it has been only about 3 years since Destined To Reign was published. it is interesting to me to see the direction Prince has chosen to go with his writing. He is still the senior Pastor at a very large church; a church that has a grand new facility; and Prince is now the parent of both a little child and a teenager. Yet, on page 225 of The Power of Right Believing, Prince notes that "many believers are still living in defeat ...". I enjoyed this book, and hope you will consider it. It will be interesting to see what Pastor Prince might write in the future.
