“Relentless” John Bevere

I finished this book a few months ago. I went through a time of recovery after surgery and I was reading a lot of books. I read about 10 books in two weeks and this was one of the books that I read during that. I read some really good and surprising books during that time and this was the one that I dont remember very well. Not that I liked it the least, but the other books made me think more and challenged me more. As I look through my copy I see some highlighted parts but not a lot. I usually like his books and am challenged by them but this seem just okay. Not bad, not great. I had to look over it to remember what I read. I did like the part about pride, humility and having false humility. I also liked the theme of the book to pursue the right thing. Not just the statis quo but to not give up and pursue what God has for you. To e determined and to be focused on what He has called us to do. 

I loved this chapter on page 42 that talked about what the enemy fears. “The enemy doesn’t fear us having nice buildings, published books, large gatherings, television programs, or satellite boradcasts as long as long as we are ignorant of the amazing power available to us. What the dark forces fear is that believers will discover the power available to us. What the dark forces fear is that believers will discover the power that has freely been placed in us and, subsequently the ability we have to boldly, creativly change society as Jesus did. They fear us taking our place as rulers in this life.”

Really powerful statement that was in the book that reminded me of is available. I heard a while ago “Someday, somebody will pick up the Bible and believe it and embarrass the rest of us.”

I should re look of the book more and get a better perspective of the book. Check it out and see what you think.
