GRAMBLING, La. (PRWEB) April 05, 2013
In his new book “Black Christian Men: Answering the Call to A Life of Righteousness and Service” (published by WestBow Press) author Leon Whittaker urges readers to embrace their spiritual growth and make intentional efforts to become all they need to be as they follow Jesus Christ.
“Black Christian Men” promotes five focal points: accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior; answering the call to a life of righteousness; seeking and receiving the power of the Holy Spirit; developing a consistent and persistent prayer life; and being always ready and willing to provide services for others.
An excerpt from “Black Christian Men”:
“This book extends a challenging call for all of us, who claim to be followers of Jesus Christ, to grow in our relationship with Him. The title suggests that this is a special call to Black Christian men, who should be the strength and guardian for the black family, church and community. It addresses, in an abbreviated way, some of the many problems or conditions that seem to negatively affect many of our black children, youth and young adults. It is hoped that the real answer to our conditions will be recognized, and sought out. This message encourages Christians to cultivate a more sincere and effective daily walk with Christ, regardless of race or gender.”
“Christians should have the desire to receive a clearer revelation of who they are in Christ,” Whittaker says. “This book presents a good picture of what the true Christian’s walk should be, regardless of church denomination.”
