    The Lifestyle of a Prophet: A 21 Day Journey to Embracing Your


    The Lifestyle of a Prophet: A 21 Day Journey to Embracing Your Calling has proved to be a solid and insightful manual on the topic of Christian prophetic living. As the author reveals, a prophet is being God's confidante. The book takes us on a learning journey in what is required to fulfill that call.

    Divided into 3 sections, the foundational piece is Intimacy of relationship with Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Section 2 covers the Wisdom required, and 3rd is Revelation. The ordering is intentional. A prophetic lifestyle begins in intimacy of relationship, and must gain wisdom before receiving and delivering revelation. 

    Each section provides 7 days of writing on each theme; each day's discussion ends in a prayer, followed by interactive questions on the topic of the day. It would be ideal to begin the book with a journal in order to record your responses to the questions. They encourage deeper thought and process in revealing more than the reader's surface reaction. Inner growth is definitely an intended outcome as the questions are challenging. These challenges would be welcomed by those readers intent on "Embracing [Their] Calling".

    I found the daily readings encompass each topic with a thorough investment of knowledge from the author's perspective, abundant scriptural references, and quotations from others in the prophetic realm, both past and present. Language used makes for ease of reading and understanding.

    The amount of material covered, along with the thoroughness, makes this an ideal reference resource. Combined with the reader's own journal of responses gleaned during the study, it creates a solid foundational piece for both beginners and those seasoned desiring prophetic giftings that enable becoming God's confidante through a lifestyle of intimacy, wisdom and revelation.

    My recommendation would include both, as well as readers sensing a call to know more about living a prophetic Christian lifestyle.

    I was really excited to read this book because I am very curious

    I was really excited to read this book because I am very curious about those who have been called to be a prophet (yes, I believe there are still prophets among us today). I think I was expecting this book to be a guide to help direct those who are curious and possibly interested in pursuing that calling. So I had my expectation and the book was something different.

    I felt the book really talked to those who have already been called not to those seeking so I was a bit let down. But, had I not gone into the book with that expectation it might have had a more enjoyable reading experience.

    Regardless of how you feel about prophecy this really could be a great book to use as a devotional and draw you closer to the arms of Jesus. The readings aren't very long and at the end of each chapter are questions for you to ponder or discuss.

    I did latch on to a couple of great insights, one being this from page 45: "Worship is a prophetic action that releases the spirit opposite to the boastful pride of life." And "Extravagant praise is a key that unlocks His presence within us." Love that!

    Depending on what you are looking for this might be the book for you.

    A copy of this book was given to me by Chosen Books in exchange for an honest review.
