Phil Munsey is a godly man, a great pastor, and a dear friend. His life has impacted our community and me personally. Read this book and learn! —RICK WARREN SENIOR PASTOR, SADDLEBACK CHURCH, LAKE FOREST, CA
I still remember the first time I heard Phil say, “Every deed produces a seed.” It was a life lesson that as a father of five children I have never forgotten. Legacy Now is a profound book from one of the sharpest minds in the body of Christ. You’ll learn how to perpetuate your faith to your children for generations to come. —JENTEZEN FRANKLIN SENIOR PASTOR, FREE CHAPEL, GAINESVILLE, GA
Phil Munsey has the unique ability to encourage and challenge, entertain and educate, make us laugh and cry—all at the same time! He is one of the most creative thinkers I know—often reexamining long-held notions and assumptions. Still, while many who think outside the box take us on futile detours into the bizarre in an attempt to come up with startling innovations, Legacy Now opens our eyes to the core matters of life. And, most importantly, this book shows how our individual lives really do matter. —DR. JIM REEVE SENIOR PASTOR, FAITH COMMUNITY CHURCH, WEST COVINA, CA
When Phil Munsey speaks, I listen. His words of revelation and relevance stir my spirit and mind. You will come to understand the power, purpose, and the perpetuation of the blood of Jesus like you’ve never seen before. The “seed-to-deed” principle takes seed faith to another level. Legacy Now may be the most important book you read in a long time. —DR. ORAL ROBERTS, ORAL ROBERTS MINISTRIES, TULSA, OK
I am honored to call Phil Munsey a friend. His life and ministry have advanced the kingdom of God in tremendous ways. Phil is the real deal. He lives what he writes, teaches, and preaches; just like Jesus did. I have read this book and recommend that you do as well. —DR. WALT KALLESTAD SENIOR PASTOR, COMMUNITY CHURCH OF JOY GLENDALE, AZ
Everyone leaves a legacy; the question is, “Is it by design or default?” In this book, Phil Munsey helps you, the reader, to leave a strong legacy of faith for the next generation. —KEVIN GERALD SENIOR PASTOR, CHAMPIONS CENTRE TACOMA AND BELLEVUE, WA
One of the most progressive thinkers and communicators I know of in the spiritual sector as well as in the marketplace is Phil Munsey. His ability to stimulate and provoke contemplation on powerful insights that produce prophetic momentum with its resultant motivational force is unmatched amongst his peers. Whether you are a parent, a Fortune 500 CEO, or a student, take your time and let this distinctive voice that is crying out in a twenty-first-century wilderness of distracting echoes lead you into the specific significance of your singular and shared destiny. Discover your legacy and the reason why everything about you really does matter. —MARK J. CHIRONNA, MA, PHD, MARK CHIRONNA MINISTRIES SENIOR PASTOR, THE MASTER’S TOUCH INTERNATIONAL CHURCH LONGWOOD, FL
Legacy Now is a vibrant, eternity-echoing book that will cause your soul to awaken and grasp the eternal. My friend, Phil Munsey, has captured the heart and soul of what we should be as humanity—legacy builders. This book should be read by every person in every tribe, language, and tongue in order to have an effective life today and for all of eternity. Legacy Now communicates age-old biblical truth in the relevant vernacular of today’s language to create a new generation of legacy builders! This is a must-read! —JOHN BEVERE AUTHOR/SPEAKER, CO-FOUNDER OF MESSENGER INTERNATIONAL PALMER LAKE, CO
Phil Munsey is one of the wisest men I know, and his book, Legacy Now, will give you extraordinary insight into the meaning of a generational transfer—how our beliefs, actions, and decisions affect future generations. One important value for a kingdom leader to have is to leave a legacy, and this book tells us how to do it. I highly recommend it. I am certain it will change your life forever! —GUILLERMO MALDONADO SENIOR PASTOR, KING JESUS INTERNATIONAL MINISTRIES, MIAMI, FL
We have seen the reasons why we must have faith; we have heard why we need to release past hurts and issues in our lives; we have been taught that we are to remain true to God, our spouse, and our family because of the benefits these bring to us. But Phil Munsey helps us discover that these things leave imprints, not just on our own lives but also on the next generation, and the next, and the next. He beckons us to be heritage builders for our own family tree. When Phil shows us how much one very small deed can affect our seed, we find ourselves in the battle of lifetimes (not just one lifetime). He challenges us to believe that it is our turn to create a destiny for tomorrow’s society. I dare you to read this book and discover a future that lies beyond yourself. When your great-great-grandchild looks up his or her family lineage, what do you want them to read about you? Phil’s book will give you the foundation for your legacy. —BISHOP HARRY R. JACKSON JR. SENIOR PASTOR, HOPE CHRISTIAN CHURCH CHAIRMAN, HIGH IMPACT LEADERSHIP COALITION, COLLEGE PARK, MD
In today’s secular culture, branding has taken the place of religion. But in a world where people have lost faith in religion, they still desperately need to find meaning. Without a purpose, organizations can’t function, culture can’t survive, and people have no reason to live. Phil Munsey understands the importance of discovering meaning and leaving a legacy for the future. Legacy Now has captured the cry of this culture, and if you want to discover how to make Christianity relevant again, then this is the book to read. —PHIL COOKE, PHD AUTHOR, BRANDING FAITH: WHY SOME CHURCHES AND NON-PROFITS IMPACT THE CULTURE AND OTHER’S DON’T, SANTA MONICA, CA
Phil is not just an old friend with a distant relationship; he is a close friend who has proven his friendship. He is among the wisest counselors that speak into my life, as well as the lives of many other highly placed notable leaders. Content to be behind the scenes, it is time to make his revolutionary thinking public. When you read this book, you will understand why many seek him out for advice and direction. I personally don’t know how I would cope without his voice speaking into my life. Phil Munsey knows how you can shape your legacy. Listen and learn from his incredible insights. —TOMMY TENNEY, AUTHOR, GOD CHASER, GODCHASERS MINISTRY PINEVILLE, LA
The first time I met Phil Munsey the first words out of my mouth were, “There’s a book in you.” I am so delighted that book is no longer in Phil’s heart but in your hands now. Legacy Now is God’s solution to the agony of the human dilemma. May your heart be hungry to know the heavenly Spot Remover who takes our inferior interior and makes it superior! —MIKE EVANS NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR
Our crippling “living in the now” mentality has robbed us. Phil takes the high ground to glimpse our yesterday, today, and forever tied together. This will change your entire perspective! —LEE EZELL SPEAKER, BEST-SELLING AUTHOR
Phil Munsey and I serve on the board of a major national ministry. Phil stays on the cutting edge of today’s world. As he expresses, the decisions you make today and everything about you will determine your future and legacy. Read Legacy Now. —JOHN H MOON SR., PRESIDENT, MOON CREDIT CORP. KNOXVILLE, TN
Congratulations, Phil. Your book, Legacy Now, is a remarkable one, and it arrives at a time when it is most needed. Our young generation has been deluged with trashy materials that defy the imagination. The dropout rate in our high schools has hit a new high. Success in life on the Internet is being sold as a gaudy, greedy collection of getting more money, more fame, and more power. When I’m asked what the most rewarding thing is in my life, I can proudly say it is my seventy-three-year marriage and the wonderful collection of thirty-six people in my family living happily and fulfilling my prayerful wishes. That’s what Legacy Now is, and you have captured it in your book. —ART LINKLETTER
This remarkable book by my friend Phil Munsey is a must-read for the spiritual and secular person alike, because everyone leaves a legacy. Learn how your future self can create the present to feel the presence of heaven on earth. This is going to be a bestseller for eternity! —HAROLD H. BLOOMFIELD, MD, NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR OF NINETEEN BOOKS
America is a hero culture. Prominence rules. Inconspicuous means insignificant. We search for people who stick out, who are worthy of adulation. We seek idols—American idols. We believe in being stick-out beautiful, stick-out rich, stick-out famous, and stick-out talented. Stick out proves significance. If we don’t stick out, if we are average or small in comparison to our heroes, we are losers. We couldn’t possibly be small and significant.
In his new book, Legacy Now: Why Everything About You Matters, Phil Munsey exposes the fallacy of this Tinseltown thinking. Legacy will lead you into the joy of discovering that God has something up His sleeves in regards to your life and future—a plan that was set in motion before you arrived on this planet. With genuine vulnerability, Phil shows us we don’t have to pretend to be better than we really are because God created us to “fit” in His master plan. Legacy will convince you that each person is a destiny—a planned, on-purpose being that God wanted to cast in His unfolding play. After reading this, you will no longer be able to think about life in terms of making up your own story. Instead, you will long to find your place in the story being told by God. You will see that earth was never meant to be a world for the “survival of the fittest”—it is a world for the predestined. God has a purpose and a place for everything. On this view, success and fulfillment can no longer be based on personal aggrandizement or actualization but on obediently finding the position predestined for us by God. Brilliant stuff! —ED GUNGOR, SENIOR PASTOR, PEOPLE’S CHURCH, THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR, THERE’S MORE TO THE SECRET TULSA, OK
Phil is one of our greatest friends in all the world. Full of passion and driven to reach the lost, he is a rare gift to the kingdom of God. Phil’s new book takes the reader on a journey that truly teaches what it means to live a life totally dedicated unto God. The legacy concept is such a revolutionary way of understanding how our actions and thoughts affect the outcome of our lives. I have read this book and know that it will change people for the better. Once you pick it up, you will not be able to put it down. —MATTHEW BARNETT, COFOUNDER OF DREAM CENTER LOS ANGELES, LOS ANGELES, CA
When you read this book, Legacy Now, it will change your whole thinking process about how to view what you want in and from life. You will begin to figure out the answer to the secret of generational curses and generational blessings that will be revealed to your understanding in this book called Legacy Now. I’m proud to call this author “brother.” What he has written will make a difference in thousands of lives, not only in this generation but also in generations to come —STEVE MUNSEY SENIOR PASTOR, FAMILY CHRISTIAN CENTER MUNSTER, IN
I have had the pleasure of knowing Phil Munsey for many years. My life has been forever changed by his creative teaching, encouragement and continuous challenging. By living eternally minded, he always challenges me to live and leave a legacy in all that I do. We all leave a legacy, good or bad. This book will help you realize the significance of generational living for God’s kingdom. Powerful! —GREG ALBERTYN, FOUNDER, DIAMOND CAPITAL GROUP, SUPERCROSS WORLD CHAMPION
WOW! Phil Munsey’s book, Legacy Now, explores perhaps the most profound question that any one of us can ever ask: “What is your legacy?” During the last twenty years, I have been privileged to speak in over three thousand public schools and see firsthand the legacy of divorce, abuse, abandonment, and rejection. Today, as a corporate coach and leadership strategist, I often speak in the world’s largest business seminars on the subject of leadership. Legacy is an invitation to leadership! Leadership begins with awareness and begs each one of us to ask ourselves, “What am I doing today that will not only determine my own circumstances tomorrow but will also affect the destiny of humanity for generations to come?”
Legacy Now is a book that will help you live with a transcendent cause! It is a recognition that while your life is not about you, what you do will ultimately impact what life is about for everyone you come into contact with. —KEITH A. CRAFT, CORPORATE COACH/LEADERSHIP STRATEGIST
I am so happy that thousands are now going to be exposed to the gift that is Phil Munsey! His faithful pursuit of the kind of divine wisdom that Legacy Now presents is destined to change the course of history for someone. If you read it, it will be yours. I wholeheartedly endorse the book because I know the man. —MIKE HAYES FOUNDER, COVENANT CHURCH, CARLTON, TX
Blessed with a keen mind to articulate his cutting-edge thoughts both in speaking and writing, Phil Munsey will indeed capture every reader with this challenging, provoking book that will indeed leave us a “legacy” of its own. I have known Phil Munsey for many years, and I am always amazed at the delivery of each subject he teaches with both life experience and divine revelation. I am always inspired by his unique, God-given ability to communicate old ideas and ideals with fresh insight. This new book is a must-read for every person who wants to touch future generations while taking responsibility of everything they do and insure that their lives will be a blessing. Great job, Phil! —DAVID T. DEMOLA PASTOR, FAITH FELLOWSHIP MINISTRIES, SAYREVILLE, NEW JERSEY
Phil Munsey communicates in a powerful and effective way the need to realize the magnitude of our choices. Our choices affect not only do us but also those who will be connected to our future for many generations to come. For those who have been born into families and circumstances that present extreme challenges, this book brings great news and provides keys to help you overcome and begin to establish a legacy that will live forever. —NANCY ALCORN FOUNDER, MERCY MINISTRIES
For the first time that I am aware of, someone has finally matched the DNA discovery of our generation to the power and purpose of the blood of Christ. Wow! Now more than ever we can contemplate and celebrate the meaning of why Christ died and shed His precious blood for our sins. Christ has truly provided “prewashed genes,” as Phil so cleverly describes in his fascinating book Legacy Now: Why Everything About You Matters! Learn how building a godly legacy may be the most important task you’ll ever achieve. —PAUL F. CROUCH FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT, TRINITY BROADCASTING NETWORK, SANTA ANA, CA
At last, someone who endorses the entire human lineage and not just a dissected section of it. I never knew my great-great-grandfather. He passed long before I arrived. Whether he was a successful man I do not know. In all my forty-four years I have never paused to thank God for him. Today, for the first time, I did. Thank you, Phil Munsey, for pouring your heart into writing Legacy Now. You have helped me realize that the cast of humanity is much bigger than just the few generations that are on stage at the moment. —WES BEAVIS, MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER AND ENTERTAINER, INTERNATIONAL BEST-SELLING AUTHOR
Pastor Phil’s Legacy Now exemplifies the tongue and pen of a ready writer. He has a certain sound that resonates with revelation and unique articulation. Abraham, the friend of God, knew that he could command the legacy of his household.
Solomon discovered in the midst of his many vanities that eternity was written in the heart of man. Shakespeare mused about the world as a stage and all men playing their seven acts. Francis Schaeffer asked, “How then shall we live?” Men continue on a quest for their destiny about that which really matters. Phil takes the specifics of our historical roots and makes them dynamic. He also imparts hope in the transformation that the gospel produces in us all. In his unique and inimitable way, Phil has gleaned, gathered, and garnered a treasure trove like a roving bumble bee, extracting and condensing nectar—the stuff of legacy. It has been my pleasure to call this man my friend for over twenty years. For more than twelve years I have gratefully called him my pastor. —MOSES VEGH AMBASSADOR, HOPE TO THE NATIONS
The truth and treasure in this message, Legacy Now, is both urgent and vital for the health and welfare of the generations who follow. We should each construct a heritage that can be built upon and grown free in unrestrictive ways. Phil Munsey powerfully inspires as well as practically identifies concepts so everyone can build legacy in their lives and world. —LISA BEVERE, BEST-SELLING AUTHOR, FIGHT LIKE A GIRL AND KISSED THE GIRLS AND MADE THEM CRY
Phil Munsey is, in my opinion, one of “God’s Generals.” He has not only a heart for the lost but also compassion and love for youth. During a time in which my own son Kyle was struggling with his purpose and his own direction, Phil was able to reach him in a way that Kyle could understand and identify with. I believe this is a must-read book that will not only inspire and encourage the believer but will also reach out to those who are searching for life’s big question: what am I here for? —DON COLBERT, MD AUTHOR, TOXIC RELIEF AND THE SEVEN PILLARS OF HEALTH
Phil Munsey’s words about legacy serve as a beacon in a world darkened by the constant search for instant gratification. When we realize that our lives matter, not just for today but also for tomorrow and on into eternity, we are motivated to make each moment count. This book eloquently examines the unique dichotomy of calling and destiny, reaffirming important truths about our Creator’s purposeful design. —DON PIPER, SPEAKER, AND THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR OF 90 MINUTES IN HEAVEN
