    Thank God for real talk.

    I applaud Kirk Franklin; in fact, I feel he deserves a standing ovation for his book, THE BLUEPRINT-A Plan For Living Above Life's Storms. Yes, I applaud Mr. Franklin for keeping it "One Hundred" - in other words, for keeping it real and focused. Thank you, Kirk for not presenting to us 231 pages of meaningless church lingo and garbage! I find it refreshing to have a gospel music artist write a book with genuine talk, focused on genuine issues facing today's society, including the church. For you "Kirk-ites", church folks or readers in general, who desire superficial, inane jargon or verbiage, this particular book is not for you. This is not the book that will have you feeling warm and fuzzy all over. Instead, THE BLUEPRINT, will challenge you to face yourself and choose to make a decision. Just like in his music, Kirk has written something to everyone in this book. He speaks to the sista's, the brotha's, the single folk, the married folk, the divorced folk, the black folk, the pigment challenged folk, the saved folk and the unsaved folk. He confronts issues from self-esteem to anger to sex to racism. Kirk's BLUEPRINT references the original and all time best selling Blueprint (The Holy Bible) throughout its pages. You get a message here from a young man who is humble and unafraid to be transparent. We can all relate to THE BLUEPRINT, because many of the challenges and struggles Kirk Franklin has been through, so have all of us - clergy collar or no clergy collar. For those of you traveling life's journey, finding it appropriate to don a mask, THE BLUEPRINT will assist you in putting the mask away forever. THE BLUEPRINT will assist in directing you onto the right path; it will help fortify your relationship with Jesus Christ and if you don't have one, THE BLUEPRINT may convince you to seriously consider one. A resounding applause goes right here -- for Kirk Franklin -- for choosing to pen a book of substance and Christ inspired direction. Brotha Percy

    Kirk Franklin's The Blueprint is AWESOME!

    I just love this book. I have read so many Christian books over the years and they make you feel good, challenge you a bit - but I have never wanted to re-read a book like this until now.

    Kirk has an amazing ability to keep this book real, raw and fresh. I read through this book in no time - it made me laugh, cry, but most importantly think on those areas in my life that the Lord is challenging me to reveal - even it is just to the Lord.

    I could not suggest a better book to anyone - whether you know the Lord or not - that could motivate you to seek Him. Stop right now and get this book - you will not regret it!

    I Wanted More From This Book

    Kirk Franklin has been successful as a gospel artist, but as a writer, I wanted more. It seemed like he tackled too many topics and that left him unable to delve into the issues at hand. I would have been better if he picked one topic like family and focused on that. Who I though to complain? A book I would recommend though, "When God Stopped Keeping Score," which tackles something we all need in our life, forgiveness.
