Reviews - What do customers think about Believe That You Can?
Not just fluff. May 6, 2010
This book was very well written and packed with good advice. Sometimes I read books written by preachers or other prominent Christians and end up feeling like they just needed to make some money and so they came up with a flashy title that is relevant in the current time and then just tried to fill up as many pages as possible with whatever borrowed ideas and content (read: old and tired ideas and content) they could think of. But I have read several books by this author and preacher, and I have consistently found that the information in his books is fresh and stimulating, and I have never felt like I wasted my money. I also usually end up passing the book along to share with a friend, because I would like to help someone else get the insights and encouragement that are always plentiful in Pastor Franklin's books. I would certainly recommend this book for anyone trying to make the most of life.

Franklin is utterly articulate. He is thoroughly inspirational and gives the reader a practical guide for putting patience and practical feet under your dreams, goals, and aspirations. There aren't enough good things to say about this book. Just get it and read it. It is well worth the time. It is one of the very few books which I have been inspired to read again and again.
Packed With Excellent Material! May 15, 2009
If you're here on Earth, God has a plan for you is the conclusion Jentezen Franklin draws in this book on tapping into your God-given dream. He says not all dreams are of God, your responsibility is to discover what God's dream for your life is and to pursue it passionately. A distinction is made between mere dreamers and those who create reality from their dreams. He writes, "The question is not can you dream, but do you have the courage to act on it?" (p. 3).
On page 119, he explains a familiar passage from the Bible with fresh insight. Second Timothy 4:2 talks about being instant in season and out of season. He says the Greek word for season in that Scripture is "eukairos" which has to do with "opportunity", therefore it is talking about being prepared when opportunity presents itself. He goes on to summarize it in a creative way; "When a God-given opportunity comes along, it is God's gift to you. What you do with that opportunity is your gift to God" (p. 126).
He strongly encourages you to be a risk taker. People who live in the safe zone never make a significant difference. Growth only occurs when risks are involved. Stretching beyond one's comfort zone means giving effort mediocre people overlook. "When you give extra effort, it always opens doors. And when God opens the door, don't be intimidated" (p. 144).
My copy of this wonderful book is filled with underlining and marginal comments. It is a book for doers. It will fuel your fire to have something to show for your life.

Very good motivational book on living your dream. He gave three steps in the life of a dream or vision. Practical and to the point. Go after it, even if it seems it has died. Speak to it, Live dream, Live! Addresses discouragement and passivity issues and gives inpsiration through Biblical examples and also from his own life. Believe that you can accomplish what has been put within you.
