Keys to Transformation and Contentment
Award winning author Dr. Jamal Bryant writes to help the reader redirect destructive desires to empowering desires in his new book "World War Me Volume II: I Desire." Dr. Bryant puts in plain words the need to separate personal longing from divine inspiration, and the conflict and crisis of desire. He has an anointed gift for making "things spiritual" practical.
The book is more than a training tool; it is a roadmap, for the reader on a personal journey, into truth and the pursuit of happiness. Bryant weaves the elements of desire through the eyes of psychology, philosophy, foundational origins, practical management, and behavioral patterns. Bryant packs every chapter with sound advice illustrated with real-life anecdotes and relevant contemporary illustrations based on scriptural principles.
Jamal's writing has challenged me personally. David's affirmation in Psalms, chapter twenty-seven, verse four has long been a favorite of mine. The sub-title of this book is "I Desire." It is written with the prayer that the reader will: desire to see the face of God in worship. His glory will then change in attitude regarding desire for people, acceptance, and approval.
An amazing combination of application, inspiration, and counsel. Dr. Jamal Bryant's writing is comprehensive, well documented, and highly endorsed by Christian leaders.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's guidelines.
