The world seems to have figured out the formula for manufacturing material success, but when it comes to finding true, lasting happiness, we are as lost as ever. We yearn for more, or less, or something thats just different from what we have right now.Deep down, we know there must be satisfaction for our longing. We just dont know where to find it.
In Sandcastle Kings, Rich Wilkerson, Jr. uses four powerful stories from the seventh chapter of Luke to explain why spiritual fulfillment cannot be found in ourselves, in other people, in material things, or even in religion. By studying the stories of the centurions faith, the resurrection of the widows son, Jesus message about John the Baptist, and the anointing by the woman with the alabaster jar, you will be able to face your doubts and insecurities and overcome your anxiety, discontentment, and depression. Wilkerson wants you to understand that the only answer for your spiritual bankruptcy is Jesus and that until you turn to him you will never experience the lasting peace and joy you so desperately crave.

Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Focus on Christ and on graceNovember 30, 2015Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Sandcastle Kings" is a spiritual growth book. The author looked at the accounts of four encounters with Jesus in Luke 7: the centurion with a sick servant, the widow going to bury her son, John's disciples asking Jesus if he really is the Christ, and the sinful woman who poured perfume on Jesus' feet.
While there were some insights into the verses, he mainly drew a lesson from each section of verses and then gave a sermon on that topic. These lessons were biblically based and had a focus on Christ and on grace. He made some really good points. The tone was casual, and his points were easy to understand. He calls his readers to a deeper, more meaningful relationship with Christ. I'd recommend this book.
