I must confess I couldn’t stop laughing whilst reading this book. Maybe due to the fact that it talks about “Grace” (joke that only Brazilians may understand). And just like the song from the “Phantom of the Opera” I would catch myself singing to it: “where in the world have you been hiding, really you are perfect?” A 10 out of 10 book.

Well, it must be very simple to say that we live under “Grace” now because of the death of Jesus on that cross. Yet, even having been Christian for almost 10 yea

Joseph Prince, Destined to Reign: The Secret to Effortless Success, Wholeness and Victorious Living (Tulsa, OK: Harrison House, 2007).

If you combine a Word of Faith understanding of biblical promises with a Dispensationalist understanding of grace, the result is Destined to Reign by Joseph Prince, a book about “being radically transformed by His grace and His grace alone” (p. ix).

The Word of Faith understanding of biblical promises is evident on page 1: “You are destined to reign in life,” P

This book is a MUST READ!! I grew up in church and still every chapter held phenomenal revelation for me and answered questions that I've had since childhood. This book can set you free from so much bondage and reveal to you how God truly sees you and how much He loves you beyond question. I beg of everyone to read it, at least once, and be open to letting it change you!

That being said, I know many people who discount Joseph Prince's teaching because they find it a free-for-all for sin. To those

This is a very difficult book to review because while most of the book was full of encouraging and true statements, there were enough questionable or even false statements that I believe it could do just as much harm to a person's spiritual walk as good.

The book that started a New Reformation in the church, perhaps the most important book written in 200 years.

Joseph Prince is a gifted Pastor and a leader with a passion and vision for the gospel of Christ. I highly recommend this book and his ministry. I must add that I am not in total agreement with all of his teachings, however he is well within the theological camp of sound orthodox theology. I can say that after listening to hundreds of his sermons, reading all of his books and closely follo

When I became a follower of Christ it was after a long journey of exploration and discovery. In that time but more importantly after that time I could not help but reading the Bible and it seemed like the same book that I had been reading (the Bible that is) several times was completely new. Especially the New Testament, Paul's letters were speaking to me in a way like never before. I saw this image of Christians being completely set free by the blood of Christ, a new covenant of grace similar a ...more

Don't let the title scare you. It sounds like Tony Robbins or some other self-help guru, but it is still apt for what Prince is offering, which is the real thing. This is Bible-centered radical grace preaching, and when you finish reading it, you'll wonder how you were ever convinced to sell God so short as the modern church does. This book blessed me in many, many ways, and I cannot recommend it enough. If you're getting tired of relying on your own works to somehow make you righteous or keep y ...more

wow! what a life-changing topic! i'm not one to call a book "life-changing" either! this book really freed my mind and spirit of religious expectations that are outside of the grace of God. it's all about resting in the grace that has been freely given - resting in the finished work of Jesus. the religious standard is to obtain things by YOUR faith, or overcome by YOUR confession, or be healed because of YOUR stance when grace says that it's all about Jesus. it's really a good news message.

Being raised in church all my life, many of the things I was taught raised many questions in my mind. Some of the doctrines simply didn't make sense to me. Throughout Pastor Prince's book he addressed many of these questions with answers that made far more sense. This is a book I've read several times! I'd recommend this book to everyone. Warning: It is not for the traditional churchgoer who is perfectly content with their doctrines because this book will definitely challenge many traditional vi ...more

In a word? Fantastic! The Lord is using Joseph Prince in an incredible way to take away the veil that satan has tried for some 2,000 years to place over the eyes of believers so that they can't see the full beauty and magnificence of the Gospel. Oh the joy and loveliness of looking at Jesus and seeing our lives literally transformed before our very eyes!! Oh what a savior we have!!

I was familiar with Prince before i read this book and was really impacted with his teaching on grace and righteousness in particular. my pastor highly recommended this book, so i gave it a shot. i normally shy away from many christian books from pastors because, honestly, most of them are poorly written and are repetitive. they get boring fast. and, although i can't say that the writing in this was particularly great, it was still above average and i didnt mind reading it. now, writing aside, t ...more

Recommended to Cathleen by: Madison
I am sorely conflicted about the teachings in this book. It has some eye-opening and potentially life-changing explorations about what grace is and what it means for the life of a believer, but according to the author the end results seem to be centered in health, wealth, and success here in this world. I'm afraid I'm not a fan of the author's writing style either; it smacks too much of televangelist-speak in both tone and construction, and I'm uncomfortable with how prominently the author featu ...more

This book has changed the way I think about being a christian. I am the beloved of God. The blood of Jesus is powerful enough to bring good in my life. I am not qualified, I am not good enough, and I do not have to qualify,earn, or be good enough. I will read this book again because I want this message to stay fresh in my mind. I have been taught the wrong message for a long time. I have a lot of trash to put in the garbage from past teaching in the churches. I am loved by God no matter my failu ...more

This book completely went against all that I've been taught by the church my entire life, but that's a good thing. The church today is so limiting and as a result, Christians are unhappy when we actually should be the happiest people in the world because of the amazing gift we have been given! Unfortunately, too many denominations refuse the gift of grace and try to make it by on works. Joseph Prince unpacks Scripture in a way that makes it completely understandable and makes you realize that yo ...more

I can honestly say, "It changed my life! And it is the BEST book on the earth!" Many people put, "best book ever" on a lot of books they read, but this book On the day I left an legalistic internship, they took the books I was reading, away from me, leaving me sorta empty. I felt I needed some new books to read. I stopped by a Christian book store, and I was browsing through thousands of books when my mom miraculously picked up, “Destined to Reign” by Joseph Prince. We bought it, and as I read i ...more

Wow! This book blessed me! There is nothing like having old erroneous beliefs torn down with the truth if God's word. For me, the key is this: I am saved by grace and have righteousness as a gift from God. I cannot lose or gain His favor based on anything that I have done, it is all based on Christ's finished work on the cross. His goodness brings me to repentance, and praise God! He is sooo good!

I heard a few of Joseph Prince's broadcasts because a friend is a fan. At first I was indifferent. Then he started talking about God healing people if we ask him to. That made me mad. If that's true, what about the really awesome people I've known who have suffered from horrible diseases and not been healed? Some of them may not have asked, but some I'm certain did ask, and I know they all had other believers asking for healing on their behalf.

I still don't know what to think about this, to be
I hate the title of this book. It seems like some ridiculous self-help book that will teach you to make a million dollars in three months by flipping houses. I'm sure that it is probably packaged that way purposefully to reach that crowd, but that isn't me. :)

I'm roughly 100 pages in and the book is really about God's grace. It came recommended from a friend and I'm still studying and researching the concepts presented. So far, I'm about 95% with the guy. :)

A refreshing look at how God's grace isn't just related to the initial salvation of Christian believers, but a way of life that must permeate a believers daily walk. It provides a new percpetive on how the Father percieves His children and why He wants them to reign in this life.

This book will rock your world in terms of what we have been taught about Jesus. He backs up everything with scripture. Many, many eye-opening experiences while reading the book. It's not a book that you can read fast. You need to digest it as you go. Great book!

I've seen Joseph Prince preach and I have to say he preaches Grace. If you would rather live be the law and be heavy laden then feel free.

I personally find no fault in this book which some claim to "cheapen grace".

A refreshing and radical look at Jesus and the cross.

Strengths: Grace and Jesus
Without a doubt, the emphasis of Prince on grace is healthy. The gospel of Jesus, the heart of Christianity, is grace, not legalism or obedience. We are saved totally by grace, a free gift of God in the death of his Son on the cross for our redemption. It is true that many Christians do not grasp grace properly. Humanity’s default position is to attempt to merit something by our works or piety and grace radically overthrows that.

So if Christians do not understand grace,
