This book contains the most detailed and honest description of what life is like for someone who is called to the office of a prophet. It is not flashy or fluffy and does not focus on the gift of prophesy as so many prophetic books do. The book truly captures the heart of people who are called to the prophetic ministry and provides sobering insight into how God uses prophets. This book will not give Christians who think they are called to the prophetic warm, fuzzy feelings but instead compel them to seek a deeper understanding of what's really important to God and how He uses prophets to fulfill His desires - not ours.
