Review:The Lifestyle Of A Prophet by:James W. Goll

The Lifestyle of a Prophet: A 21-Day Journey to Embracing Your Calling
About the Book:
 Accessible Guide from Bestselling Author
for Embracing the Prophetic Calling
Internationally respected prophet and bestselling author James W. Goll offers a readable, practical approach to the prophetic gifting. Centered around a unique, hands-on 21-day guide, he helps believers develop the intimacy with God essential to hearing his voice clearly and correctly--and then proclaiming his words faithfully.
Through illustrations from his own life and those of John, Daniel, and Ezekiel, Goll exposes common misconceptions, the successes and failures of gifted people throughout church history, and wisdom from the trenches of the prophetic. Devotional prayers and reflection questions follow each chapter. A must-have resource for those in prophetic ministry and all who work with them.

My Review:
 James W. Goll, a prophetic leader in his own right, has put together a 21 day guide to embracing the call that God has placed on your life. He takes you step by step through a more thorough learning of a few of the  different prophets in the Bible and examines their thought process, devotion, and relationship to the Almighty.

 In this day and time it is evident that we all need others that know the dramatic toll that this places on our lives and they are willing to step forward and show us how to uphold what God is asking and leading us to do. For without spiritual leaders that are stepping out all will truly be lost.The authors through teaching makes me want to seek out this calling even more.

 The author has sorted through several prophetic truths and broken them down to make it easier to understand and discern. Then provided further insight from his own thoughts and experiences then sums up each daily reading with prayer and final questions&thoughts.
