Seeing is believing—literally, for Duplantis, a rocker turned Christian preacher who is master of a multimedia ministry empire. Duplantis wants readers to "start using the mind of Christ" to create a mental map filled with "determined thoughts" that will help them first envision and then fulfill their idea of success. If readers can imagine it, it can happen. Nothing is impossible for Duplantis, who frequently turns to the Bible for advice and says that God is watching constantly (Duplantis's God keeps report cards on everyone). Though at times Duplantis offends, especially when discussing Muslims, he broad-mindedly claims that all people can become visionaries, "even nonbelievers." This claim falls apart as the book moves forward, however, since Duplantis's accounts of personal changes as well as his prose are all thoroughly Christian. The author's heavy use of exclamation points makes the pacing frenetic as he bellows at readers to shepherd their dreams into reality. While some Christians may be inspired by this aggressive approach to prosperity theology, others will prefer a softer sell.
