Satan is a strategic foe. His darts and doubts are designed to undermine the power of truth. He knows the importance of destroying the integrity and well-being of spiritual leaders in order to decimate the church of Jesus Christ. Pastors and church leaders need to learn about how to prepare for and protect themselves so they can lead effectively and without "losing altitude". Defying Gravity makes leaders aware of the pitfalls of ministry and equips them with the tools to avoid these temptations and traps.
This book is the fruit of Daniel Henderson's 25 years of pastoral ministry, mostly spent as the senior pastor of three churches. It also reflects his very active ministry in the past 11 years as a speaker in pastors' conferences and renewal events, which have given him many occasions for interaction with hurting pastors. From those lessons learned he instructs on the nine gauges on the leadership instrument panel that you need to monitor to keep soaring no matter what storms come your way. The nine gauges he refers to are applied truth, spiritual intimacy, personal integrity, Biblical identity, genuine accountability, eternal significance, healthy family life, indispensible pain, and a captivating call.
