If You Like Oral Roberts You Will Like This Book

If you do not like Oral Roberts, you may still like this book. Roberts uses the words "I", "me", or "my" 34 times in the table of contents. In this slightly two dimensional autobiography the author paints himself with a shining brush that glosses through some of his more controversial moments leaving the critical reader thinking, "There is probably a little more to the story." There are aspects of the book that will probably cause most theologians to shy away from placing it on their book shelves. In spite of these drawbacks this book reveals the inner thoughts of a Charismatic mystic who has made an incredible impact on the world of Christian thought. Within the pages of this book are some of the common sense themes that one might find in the autobiographies of any successful person coupled with some of the ideas usually found in the writings of medieval mystics. This is mixed in with the traditional teachings of the charismatic renewal, especially those of the prosperity gospel. It's a shame that this book will probably be read by persons who already agree with every teaching presented and ignored by all others. There are aspects of this book that could challenge all Christians.

Faith Activating Book!!!

Oral Roberts has the credibility to write about faith producing results because his entire life personifies that claim. He has experienced it first hand! This is a book about results. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Contained in this powerful book are teachings based on the Word of God. He shows you how to apply the principles for desired answers. He traces his own upbringing back to an era when people equated being spiritual with poverty. He says they mistakenly did not want to succeed, thinking it was the same as being worldly. His readers are allowed to share his moments of mediation and prayer as he sought answers from God on issues pertaining to the way God wants His people to live. He says his faith was misdirected, that his inferiority had held him back, robbing him of positive expectations. As a result he could not confidently pray for other people to see results in their lives. He goes into an explanation of his epiphany of Luke 6:38 where Jesus taught there would be positive results from giving. Those results would be that givers would receive good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. The natural realm is governed by the supernatural and he writes "miracles are coming toward you or past you every day" (p. 197). He encourages his readers to look for the supernatural intervention of God. He emphasizes this by noting "as you get into the attitude of expecting miracles, more and more will come toward you" (p. 198). Hebrews 11 teaches that God honors faith and without faith it is impossible to please Him. Roberts adds "He (God) has always done His work by miracles" (p. 201). With God in control of one's life, Brother Roberts advises his readers "make no little plans where you are" (p. 212). I am thankful I was brought up in a Christian home like him. He mentions the contributions both of his parents made to his spiritual development. I feel the same way. I strongly recommend this book. If read with an open mind it will change your life in such a way that you will see positive results that are eternally significant.

A life time of supernatural wisdom in one book

I know of no one who has had a more profound effect on the Charasmatic movement in the last fifty years than Dr. Roberts. His book is a complilation of the supernatural wisdom that God has imparted to him over his life time. It is easy to read yet touching and for those that embrace it, it could be life changeing. I highly recommend this book for anyone seeking a deeper relationship with the Lord and a more powerful ministry.
