Leader of Promise Keepers Calls Men to Faith and Action Through Biblical, Masculine Servanthood Rise of the Servant Kings: What the Bible Says about Being a Man
by Ken Harrison
“Some authors write with ink and some with water. Harrison writes with blood and fire, and his soul-stirring call to men to rise to the challenge of the hour is bold, timely, and heart-warming. If Christian men respond as the promise keepers described here, the world will be a different and better place.” —Os Guinness, author The Call: Finding and Fulfilling God’s Purpose for Your Life
Men are hungry for authenticity and for sound and bold biblical teaching on true masculinity. Every day men ask themselves questions about how to be better fathers, husbands, friends, and men, yet it’s difficult to find satisfying answers.
Author Ken Harrison, chairman of Promise Keepers, encourages men to look no further than God’s original blueprint for true masculinity: the Bible. Through fast-paced stories and biblical insight, his Rise of the Servant Kings: What the Bible Says about Being a Man
(Multnomah; May 7, 2019)
takes readers on a journey of discovery that reveals more of who God is—and who men were meant to be as His sons.
Harrison understands the struggles men face and the victories that are possible. A former LAPD police officer who served in the infamous 77th Division of south-central Los Angeles, he realizes that true strength comes only through the pursuit of biblical, masculine servanthood.
In a world that often wants men to be silent and soft, Rise of the Servant Kings
stands out as a clarion call for authentic, masculine strength. He emphasizes that real men are designed to be proactive, courageous, and humble—not passive, fearful, or arrogant. Harrison also boldly challenges men to turn from their sinful ways, find their strength through Christ and His Word, and be men of persevering prayer, who walk in forgiveness and faith-filled action.
“If you want to know God, if you want true friendship with Him, you must lay down all, including your rights to your own life,” Harrison says. “This is pure worship of the God who created you. It is giving back to Him the only thing of value you have to give—yourself.” Rise of the Servant Kings
is a much-needed, biblically-grounded resource that will awaken and equip both young and seasoned men to confidently step into their marriage, family, work, and friendships with newfound strength and embrace God’s true plan for their lives. Rise of the Servant Kings
is the “how-to-get-it-right” book for today’s Christian man—in marriage, family, work, friendships, with God in all of life.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
