An Interesting Look At Prayer... Dec 4, 2005
"When God told me (Dutch) to agree in prayer with a dead man, He had my attention!"
That's how author Dutch Sheets begins his latest book, History Makers, co-written by William Ford III.
Sheets goes on to explain what really is the premise of History Makers:
Even though the man in question has been dead for 30 years, "his prayers are not dead; they're still alive in heaven."
Now, if you are theologically conservative, there is much in this book that may rattle your cage. There are many places where the exegesis seems forced and the theological foundations for some of the book's main points are likely to raise at least a few eyebrows. Nevertheless, the stories used throughout the book are nothing short of miraculous.
Some of the "coincidences" mentioned by the authors to confirm God's leading are uncanny, easily reminiscent of the Book of Acts. You can argue theology all day long, but it's really hard to argue with someone's witness-confirmed experience. At one point, Ford asks, "Has God ever used someone else's foolish obedience to confound your wisdom?"
The authors encourage readers to consider why, after decades and centuries of trying, members of different races and different cultures still can't get along with each other. "Is it possible that in these cases there is a spiritual poison flowing through history," asks the authors.
The majority of the book then is a fascinating first-person account of the author's "Kettle Tour" to historically significant areas in an attempt to connect with the prayers of past generations in order to bring about future healing. And the starring role is not played by Sheets or Ford, but by a 200-year old cast-iron kettle used by African-American slaves to conceal their prayers for freedom.
If nothing else, this book will inspire a new respect for the power of intercession and for the astounding willingness of the Father to intervene in the affairs of man in order to bring about His purposes in the earth.
Powerful and realm shifting. May 5, 2005
I've never been so impacted. This book is proof God is living, moving and breathing. If you want to dig deep into the heart of God, you need to read History Makers. It will motivate you to pray like never before.
A Christian self-help guide Dec 5, 2004
History Makers: Your Prayers Have the Power to Heal the Past and Shape the Future is a Christian self-help guide to renewing the faith and sincerity in one's prayer. Emphasizing the need to look to biblical forefathers and pray for the renewal of their covenants with God, History Makers forsees the synergistic effect of combining prayers as having a lasting impact upon God's goals for humanity, America, and the world. History Makers does not put forth such naive beliefs as to claim that prayer alone allows for earthshaking events such as the capture of Saddam Hussein, but it does stress the positive repercussions prayer can bring on all walks of human life, culminating in what can only be described as a translation "from censer to scepter". A zealous yet profound exploration into the role that faith can have, and an instructional in how to fire up one's faith to transcent curses of the past.
