Book review: The Everyday Visionary by Jesse Duplantis
One of the real joys found in my recent spiritual growth spurt has been Jesse Duplantis. It is always a joy to find a person who is free to be what the Lord made him. God is infinitely creative and Jesse is in the image of his Father. His freedom in the Lord is a true inspiration to me.
The Everyday Visionary gives a practical method of implementing your vision
Though it’s a small book, I took my time and spent three weeks going through it, meditating on the content, and praying about its implementation in my life. What I really liked about the book was that I got to see into Jesse’s thinking processes in a way that isn’t possible when watching him preach. The entertainment factor takes a back seat to sharing wisdom—and Jesse exudes the wisdom of our Messiah.
I’m afraid a lot of people see Jesse and laugh, maybe get saved, get some spiritual nourishment, but do not see the rich spiritual meat he has to offer. That deeper content for the more mature shines through his book. The Spirit will take you through a journey of self-discovery and analysis which will greatly help your ministry and enable you to crystalize your vision (at least it did for me).
I highly recommend the book. In many ways it is better than his preaching. The man has been around. The Lord has taught him a lot. I believe you will value the read as much as I did.
