….((Quote from this devotional: “When the world sees men dropping differences and coming together, the world is going to want what Christians have. ……But only God can build that bridge.”))

II love this devotional book a lot, it is short and right to the spot. He writes in a very easy to understandable way. I Love the scriptures that are being used in the book, and the matter of the fact is, that it feels like it is written Right to me. Pastor TD Jakes taught me a lot through this book, and the blessing og being able to wake up every day and study the word of God is SUCH A BLESSING
Very very thankful for this opportunity to read a wonderful book like this

A good book, that is easy to read and loosely based around Bible Scripture. While the book, is not so much of a novel as devotional daily reading, it still reads really well. I would recommend men read this book, Christian or not. The message is clear and easy to understand. I did not know who T.D Jakes was before reading this book and developed respect for his ministry and preaching abilities. The book had some lasting impact on me. The only downside was how the book was written, that it was no ...more

The book is very encouraging and helpful for men. This isn't a self-help book but rather a book to help men who are seeking to solve their problems from a Biblical perspective which self-help books don't focus on and ignore. Some self-help books are secular, this book from Bishop Jakes is from a Bishop who is a Christian.

In times like these, it is good to read a book to help build men up spiritually and unlock their godly potential. I highly recommend this book.

Bishop TD Jakes has been doing this "transformation" through writing thing for a long time. I recently saw this title re-released at a local Walgreen's $13.99. I opened the book and saw the copyright was dated back to 1997. I scored it on amazon for $2.50 and am enjoying and resonating with each devotional. Thanks again Bishop Jakes for sharing your anointing!
