About the Book
The “how-to-get-it-right” book for today’s Christian man–in marriage, family, work, friendships, with God in all of life.
Men are hungry for authenticity and for sound and bold biblical teaching on true masculinity. Every day men ask themselves questions about how to be better fathers, husbands, friends, and men, but it’s difficult to find satisfying answers. Rise of the Servant Kings explains that true masculinity is found in absolute surrender to God, which always results in humble character and is expressed in courage and generosity. When a man truly understands God’s desires, he will naturally express godly masculinity, Ken Harrison weaves together his experiences as a police officer in one of the deadliest areas of the country, with many years as a business executive and ministry leader, to share deep truths for men direct from God’s Word.
Rise of the Servant Kings is a book with topics that cover much of the areas of a man’s life, and it it digs deep and holds up the mirror, surfacing the issues and struggles that come with each area. This book is not for the unserious or the faint of heart; it is a guide to those who seek to follow God’s leading as they go on a journey to discover what God intended when He created the gender, man, as well as how to die to self to do so, and the sacrifices that come with it.
Though Harrison wrote this book particularly for men, a lot of the principles apply to women. And for the women who love their men, this is a good book that broadens understanding of a man’s path as laid out by God, so that as someone who cares, you not only understand it, but also help in the capacity/position that God has enabled/placed you in, and not stand in the way.
Rise of the Servant Kings, as the title illustrates, equips men (and the women who love them) to rise to the task of being a true servant leader.
*Though I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and simply that. Much appreciation to Waterbrook Multnomah for a free copy in exchange for an honest opinion.
