Why do some strong men fail while others succeed? Like the biblical character Samson, all strong menùthose who are successful, influential, self-confident, aggressive, or widely respectedùface twelve tendencies that can lead to sin and even personal tragedy.
The adventurous and gifted Samsonùwhose story is told in four chapters of the book of Judgesùnever had the intention of fighting against God. He was just a fun-loving guy looking for a good time. Like so many strong men today, he didnÆt think his sin was any big deal. But itÆs clear as you read his story that the older he got, the more sin held him in its grip.
The Samson Syndrome is a set of twelve tendencies or challenges that strong men will always face. Obstacles like lust, ignoring good advice, big egos, fears of authentic intimacy, losing sight of the big picture, and others, have the ability to be any manÆs undoing. AtteberryÆs mission is to remind men of the joy of living within GodÆs boundaries, because he believes thereÆs a little Samson in all of us. With GodÆs help weÆre capable of such great things. But weÆre never more than one bad choice away from humiliation. However, it doesnÆt have to be that way if you want to fulfill your God-given potential.

Pastor Joe1 Stars Out Of 5Not A "Standard" EbookOctober 12, 2015Pastor JoeQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 1I was disappointed to find out that this book cannot be read on a Sony Reader or on my Android phone with standard apps as I have been able to do with any other eBooks I have purchased elsewhere in the past. Apparently, to read CBD eBooks, you have to load a special app on your phone, or download a special Adobe program on your computer, and cannot store it with other eBooks in your standard Reader Library.
To say the least, I am quite disappointed.
