The Lifestyle of a Prophet – Book Review

9780800795368

The latest book that I have to share with you is The Lifestyle of a Prophet: A 21-day Journey to Embracing Your Calling by James W. Goll. This book is broken down into 3 parts, each with 7 chapters.

  • The Lifestyle of Intimacy (focusing on a discipline of daily intimacy with God)
  • The Lifestyle of Wisdom (after establishing the discipline if daily time with God, the wisdom will follow)
  • The Lifestyle of Revelation (revelation then comes out of this wisdom)

Each chapter, or daily reading, ends with a prayer and four embracing your calling questions. I love how these questions really get you to examine what you have read and begin to apply it to your life. Each chapter builds on the previous one. This book is loaded with a wealth of information. In the back of this book there is a scripture index which is a fabulous reference tool.

This book is not what I originally thought it would be. However, I do like James’ idea behind the book about becoming a disciple of Jesus and following His example. All of this will work together to point back to God. This is something that each one of us needs to strive for.
