Be Light

Shining God's Beauty, Truth, and Hope into a Darkened World

Samuel Rodriguez

About Be Light

The Blueprint for Overcoming Darkness and Living in God’s Light...
 
Our world unravels more each day. It feels as if we’re drowning in a sea churning with greed, violence, and lust. As darkness advances, hope dims.

Yet within that reality, God gives us a profound mandate...
 
           Be Light
 
Light has always defined God and His followers. At creation, God spoke light into existence. Jesus is the light of the world. And we are born to absorb and then reflect God’s light.

In Be Light Samuel Rodriguez—described by Fox News and CNN as “America’s most influential Latino Evangelical leader”—provides a blueprint for confronting darkness in every realm of our lives. He issues a clarion call for individual believers and the church to rise up and once again be that bright city on a hill that doesn’t simply expose the invading darkness, but overcomes it with God’s blazing light. 

“When we share the message of Jesus, the candles of others are lit and more and more darkness is driven out of our world. Our prayer is that this excellent book will inspire millions—including you—to Be Light.”  —Roma Downey, producer and actress 

Praise

“Sammy Rodriquez is light. In this darkening hour in the world, God has raised up a godly man who is passionate spiritually, blessed intellectually, and gifted in leading masses of people. Through his book Be Light, he calls us to know what we believe, to stand for it courageously, and to change the world! Get this book. Share it with others. Let’s change the world together.”
Dr. Ronnie Floyd, president, Southern Baptist Convention and senior pastor, Cross Church

“I believe God’s hand is on Sam Rodriguez as a prophet to our generation, and his message in Be Light comes at a time when the world we live in seems dark in so many ways. Delivered in thirty short, easy-to-read chapters, his insights, thoughts, and prophetic words will inspire you to be light.”
Robert Morris, founding senior pastor at Gateway Church and best-selling author of The Blessed Life, The God I Never Knew, and Truly Free

“As my friend Sammy Rodriguez passionately shares, our mandate as believers in Jesus Christ is to be light in this dark world—together becoming a ‘shining city set on a hill that cannot be hidden.’ His use of Scripture, scientific facts, and profound reflections will challenge you to pierce the darkness and radiate God’s love and grace. Light exposes danger and reveals the best way. As we allow the light of Jesus to shine through us, we will bring glory to Him and hope to a world in great need.”
James Robison, founder and president of LIFE Outreach International and founder and publisher of The Stream

“What a book! Sam Rodriguez is definitely one of those few voices God raises for a generation.
His clarity, insight, and passion leave no doubt he has heard from heaven. Even though we know darkness is increasing, the light of the church will arise far higher and brighter. This book will only cause the ‘great light’ to shine brighter and brighter to those sitting in darkness.”
Phil Pringle, founder and president of C3 Church International and senior minister of C3 Church, Sydney, Australia

“Sammy Rodriguez is a dynamic leader. His influence impacts other leaders, both spiritually and politically. Yet his compassion touches the hurting, the marginalized, and the underrepresented. His message is compelling. He does not just articulate problems; he also gives solutions. His book, Be Light, is a must-read if you are tired of the darkness. Share it with your friends and help turn on the light.”
Dr. Alton Garrison, assistant general superintendent, Assemblies of God USA

“Sam Rodriquez is a genius and a kind of prophet to our time. When he speaks, the world shakes and I listen. The truth is, you can’t afford to not read this book.”
Johnnie Moore, president, The KAIROS Company
