History's greatest Renaissance-a spiritual one-is now unfolding. In his first two "Seven Mountain" books, The Seven Mountain Prophecy and The Seven Mountain Mantle, Johnny Enlow showed how Christians are called to manifest the kingdom of God in the seven primary spheres of society: religion, education, family, government, economy, media, and the arts. Now, he reveals the sweeping changes he expects to take place over the next several decades in each of these spheres as a he unveils his vision and strategy through 2050. We have entered an "Era of Renaissance" that will not be complete until the nature and character of the invisible God are made visible in the world through the influence of His ambassadorial children. The first Renaissance in history showcased the achievements of man, but this new Renaissance will display the brilliance and works of God for the whole world to see. By 2050, an on-fire, loving church with a hope-filled worldview will be globally advancing, walking in unprecedented signs and wonders and supernatural manifestations of power. Many nations on earth will walk in a high level of national transformation. What is your part in this new Renaissance? Which mountain is your primary realm of influence?

The Seven Mountain Renaissance, Vision and Strategy through 2050 is written by author Johnny Enlow. It is the third book in his series after The Seven Mountain Prophecy and The Seven Mountain Mantle. In the first two books the author reveals his belief how Christians are called to display the kingdom of God in the seven primary spheres of society. Those are religion, family, education, government, economy, media, and celebration or the Arts. In this third book, Enlow cites changes he believes will happen all the way to the year 2050 in each of these areas. I have not read the first two books and would have benefited greatly if I had read them before reading this one. The author has researched his book well. He provides information on the early church, women in church, and modern day issues. Stating he has had visions and Words from God, the author writes about God, the Spirit, and what he refers to as the Seven Mountains. It is a thought provoking book. One that stays with you long after you have put it down. Enlow encourages you to find your Mountain or area of influence and go to work. He does not think short term, one or five years. His plan is a long term one. There are many parts of the book I agreed with and liked. Some moved me. As with all things, there were other parts I did not agree with or particularly even like. This is one book that will be to each individual's own taste or belief. I rated it a 4 out of 5 stars. A copy of this book was given to me by The Book Club Network for my honest review.
Johnny Enlow in his new book, “The Seven Mountain Renaissance” published by Whitaker House brings us Vision and Strategy Through 2050. From the back cover: You are living in a new era History’s greatest renaissance; a spiritual one; is about to unfold before our very eyes. In his first two “Seven Mountain” books, The Seven Mountain Prophecy and The Seven Mountain Mantle, author Johnny Enlow showed how Christians are called to manifest the kingdom of God in the seven primary spheres of society: religion, education, family, government, economy, media, and the arts. Now, he reveals the changes he expects to take place over the next several decades in each of these spheres. We have entered an “Era of Renaissance” that will not be complete until the invisible God is made visible through the influence of His ambassadorial children in every area of society. The first Renaissance in history showcased the achievements of man, but this new renaissance will display the brilliance and works of God for the whole world to see. By 2050, an on-fire, loving church with a hope-filled worldview will be globally advancing, walking in unprecedented signs and wonders and supernatural manifestations of power. Many nations will walk in a high level of national transformation. How will you respond to this new era? Will you help your own nation to experience a far-reaching renaissance, to the glory of God? The definition of Renaissance is, “the activity, spirit, or time of the great revival of art, literature, and learning“. It is time we focused on God in a new manner. Reverend Enlow feels that it is time that hearts be stirred to believe in Him in an upgraded manner for all that He is about to do in this unprecedented age of the kingdom of God. He will be the Great Orchestrator of this Era of Renaissance we have just stepped into. There are seven primary spheres that are religion, education, family, government, economy, media and the arts. Each one of us has a role to play it is just a question of finding the sphere that we are most talented for. This book is designed to help you find your role. I recommend it as a gift for friends and family so that they can find their roles as well. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Whitaker House.

Author Johnny Enlow’s The Seven Mountain Renaissance challenges the Christian community and the individual believer to look beyond soul saving to world impacting. Enlow cautions against an insular community focused on meeting standards and challenges believers to adopt an outward looking and strategically focused viewpoint inclined to draw people in rather than keep people out. I found the book educational and informative, giving me some much needed background on historical Christian movements and ideologies, while fostering a deeper understanding of the individuals and the impacts of their beliefs and leadership on society at large. While I can’t say that I fully embrace Mr. Enlow’s strategies, The Seven Mountain Renaissance is well worth the climb. I received a copy of the book from bookfun.org for my honest opinion.
You really need to keep an open mind when you read this book. I felt a little behind when reading it because I have not read the first two books in the series. I believe that God speaks to each and everyone of us in a unique way. Some of the chapters will speak to you but some may not, I will let you be the judge. Enlow talks about the seven primary spheres that are religion, education, family, government, economy, media and the arts. Some of the way he describes things that will happen in a few of these spheres contradicted the teachings of my church upbringing. You may feel different that is why I would recommend this book but you may need to try and keep an open mind. I recieved this book from The BookClub Network for an honest opinion.
If you are discouraged about the way the world is headed today, you will want to read this book. It is optimistic with surprising solutions for improvement in every facet of life. The Seven Mountains cover religion, education, family, government, economy/business, media and celebration/arts. The 7 spheres of influence are really intriguing in and of themselves, but they will also help you identify your passion and focus. For example, if you are in the medical profession your focus is the family mountain. According to Johnny Enlow the this mountain is going to have more dramatic changes than some of the others 6 as this next season in history unfolds. “The first Renaissance in history showcased the achievements of man, but this new Renaissance will display the brilliance and works of God for the whole world to see.” “God will increase in fame throughout the earth." There is so much to take in that I could see reading The Seven Mountain Renaissance multiple times. This book will shift your perspective! I received a complimentary book from Whitaker House and The Book Club Network at bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I decided to read this book but I have to say my eyes have been open to a new way of looking at things. The first couple of chapters really spoke to my spirit, so much so I had tears in my eyes and I can’t even tell you exactly why. Johnny did a great job outlining Christian history, things I never knew and honestly, most Christians probably don’t. We are exalting some Christians in our past who maybe we should learn more about first. As a teacher I did raise my eyebrows at some of his views on education, but some things I do agree with and see his point. There are many more things I could talk about but I want to encourage your to pick up the book for yourself. Enter with an open mind and take the things he shares and reflect on them. You might not agree with everything either but it will definitely give you something to think about.
