    ENDORSEMENTS

    Thought I'd post some helpful endorsements---- When Loren asked me to consider writing an endorsement for his new book, 'Understanding Prophetic People', I looked forward to reading the manuscript as I have both enjoyed and appreciated his previous books. What I was not expecting, however, was a classic! When I first began in prophetic ministry in the early '80s Loren's father's book, 'The Elijah Task', was the classic I and many others looked to for understanding the ministry of a prophet. However, what was sorely missing until now was the companion book on the making and make up of a true prophet. Because the message is the messenger and the prophet is the prophecy, this book is a must read for both the church at large and for all called by God to be His prophetic spokespeople. It is with real excitement that I recommend the study of this book. It will prove to be an invaluable lifelong tool for many who desire to know God's voice and ways. MARC A. DUPONT, Mantle of Praise Ministries, Inc. With piercing accuracy, R. Loren Sandford paints a vivid picture for us in his new book, 'Understanding Prophetic People'. Not only will this book grant sanity to prophetically gifted people, but it will give a measure of peace to pastors in their quest to relate to strongly gifted prophets. This is a welcome addition to the growing arsenal of equipping materials to help mature the prophetic movement. DR. JAMES GOLL, Encounters Network author, 'The Coming Prophetic Revolution', 'The Seer', 'Dream Language' and many others.

    Great book!

    I have read many books but this is my favorite. It is very informative and made me realize that I am not standing alone. Some of the things that Loren has been through, I have been through myself. This book have been a blessing to my life. Thank you!

    Edifying

    This book enlighten me, because i needed clarification about my calling- i've been requited by pastors and rejected by the same pastor,later- the wilderness experience i know- this book is for the mature prophet, because a mature prophet will decern between a prophet's insight and a pastor's insight- immarure prophet might be discouraged from speaking-

    God's church need loving correction and encouragement, because the body of christ lack fruit in unity and soul winning- i believe the spirit of god is quenclhed when a prophet is under the pastor+ both are called and anointed and should work together in edifying god's people- i hightly recomend this book for those who need fhe conformation of others with similar insight-
