Reviews from the Left
It's been said, "You shall judge a man by his foes as well as his friends." Still not sure you want to read The Kingdom Leadership Institute Manual: Raising Up Leaders a Time Like This Demands? Maybe these far left radicals can convince you…
Eleanor Bader, feminist columnist writing for the the pro-abortion RH Reality Check, an "online community and publication serving individuals and organizations committed to advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights" wrote, "The Kingdom Leadership Institute Manual, is a roadmap for...training and a fascinating-if twisted-look at the concerns of far right evangelicals, complete with a game plan for action...There's no pussy-footing in Thomas' screed. For him the battle between God and Satan is at hand."
Review on Amazon.com by Ishmael claims, "Everybody should read this book -- especially mainline Christians, non-Christians, doubters, seekers, agnostics, and atheists. Here you will find, clearly stated, the nature and goals of the extreme religious right...Read this book to see how they plan to brainwash children and turn them into Americans who will fly airplanes into buildings. Scary, scary stuff.
According to one atheist, "This book is psycho!" (See comments on this blog.)
"Arm home-schooled youth?" "Fly airplanes into buildings?" "Brainwash children?" Clearly, most of these critics haven't actually read the book. Come on guys, how about a little intellectual honesty.
What Readers are Saying
I picked it up for the first time today and read it on the plane to Miami. Excellent. I am 1/4 of the way through. I am going to apply it to my life and I am going to recommend it...Just wanted to send you this word of encouragement. You are changing lives. -Bret
Throughout my Christian walk, I have read four books (not including the Bible) that radically changed me...Now it's "Kingdom Leadership Institute Manual: Raising Up Leaders a Time Like This Demands." Before I read this book, I felt I had a pretty good handle on how to be that leader that God has called me to be. So, I can speak from experience when I say that, regardless of how much you think you know, you can learn from this book. He covers it all. And you won't believe how jam-packed this book is with, not only Scripture, but true American history. I could go on and on, but to sum it up, let me just say this: If you want a book that will clearly show you where the battle is, and prepare you to run to it, read this book. -Adam
This book should come with the disclaimer: "This is not just another Christian book." This is a book that calls the follower of Jesus to live radically for the King, to be a leader, to be a warrior, to be the kind of Christian a time like this demands. You may not agree with everything the book has to say, but you will be challenged to deeper thought and commitment by its pages. No matter your level of theological study, you will learn something, and you WILL be changed if you take the book to heart! Don't hesitate to buy it! In fact, you'll probably buy several and give them away! -Brent
This book is the work of a man for whom Christianity is an unswerving commitment for life and not simply a Sunday morning social club. There are sobering observations in this book and a call for action! -Eric
America needs a 21st century William Wilberforce to free us from to the abortion industry. This book paves the way to raise up godly, courageous persevering men to break the chains. Our comfortable churches with comfortable messages cry out for reform and a return to obedience and reverence for a holy, perfect God- the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. This book has revived my heart and hopes for America and God's work. -Fleeta
Have you seen what is happening in America? Have you seen the moral, spiritual, and economical state we are in? Why have we spiraled downward as a nation, and why are our youth so morally depraved? You'll find both the answer to these questions, and the solution to the problem in this book. This is not a coffeehouse discussion, nor is it a scholarly pastoral reference. It is a call to the Church to awaken from it's spiritual state of slumber and stand up against the Goliath that is the wickedness of this nation. Rev. Rusty Thomas is unashamed of the gospel of Christ, because he knows that it is the power of God. -Levi
Deep in his heart, every man longs for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue. Join us beginning August 29 for a quest for manhood.
C.S. Lewis wrote that the disparate strands of manhood (fierceness and gentleness) can find a healthy synthesis in the person of the knight and in the code of chivalry. Become the man you have always wanted to be. Join Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas for a free, weekly Bible study for men, based on his book, TheKingdom Leadership Institute Manual.
To serve the King of Kings heroically, a vision of victory is required. Life is not a playground. It is a war zone- a clash of worldviews competing for the souls of men and the destiny of nations. It demands honorable, knightly men who do not shrink back in the day of battle.
If your heart beats with the freedom of Christ, join other men and prepare to wage the "battle" of a lifetime. As William Wallace said in the movie Braveheart, "You have come to fight as free men, and free men you are. What will you do with that freedom? Will you fight? Aye, fight and you may die, run and you'll live. At least a while. And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take our freedom!"
STUDY GOALS: Embrace four Biblical manhood principles: Real men (1) reject passivity, (2) accept responsibility, (3) lead courageously, and (4) expect the greater reward.
LOCATION: Bible Way Church, 2800 Gurley, Waco, Texas
