Rise of the Servant Kings

Rise of the Servant Kings: What the Bible Says About Being a Man is a book by Ken Harrison, Chairman of the Board of Promise Keepers. The book talks about what it means to be a man in the context of hurt, holiness, humility, courage, generosity, and marriage, among many other topics. Harrison uses various Bible passages and stories as a way to dissect and discuss masculinity and men’s issues. One of my favorite chapters was the one about prayer, especially the parts that talked about perseverance and how prayer is worship. I liked how the author used stories and anecdotes to illustrate his points. It is a thoughtfully-written book.
