Item description for An Angel in the Flame: A Tale of Two Saviors by C. Gene Wilkes...

Overview
This is a gripping tale of two saviors. Two men whom God chose to rescue his people. Two men anyone familiar with history would call heroes among their people. Two men who represent the best and worst the human experience have to offer. One was the Arnold Schwarzenegger of his day. The other was a humble carpenter who led no army or held no office, yet in his death caused a cosmic ripple that touches the edges of our universe today. Both are part of Gods story to capture the hearts of men and women with his love, but only one lived out Gods ultimate purpose for his life. This tale is about Samson and Jesus. This unique books is a conversational commentary on the life of Samson with an eye to our final Savior, Jesus. The book interacts verse by verse with Judges 1316 and makes continual references to Jesus superior role as the Savior of all people. Samson is an example of how most of us squander the opportunities God gives us to play a significant role in His story. We are an angel in the flame a metaphor of our potential in Christ as a messenger of Gods love engulfed in his Spirit and no matter our choices God still accomplishes his purposes through our lives.

Reviews - What do customers think about An Angel in the Flame: A Tale of Two Saviors?

Connecting two stories of angel visits  Apr 19, 2010
Either as a stand-alone read or group Bible study, this book works. Gene Wilkes (who also wrote "Jesus on Leadership")communicates well the human-angel interaction in the Samson and Jesus narrative. I'd not looked at the parallels this way before and I'm glad that I did. The teaching in this book are helpful for fathers, mothers, and anyone wanting to pay closer attention to the communication of God's messengers in their lives.
 
A great book for a men's study  Sep 21, 2009
This is a great book for a men's group study. It addresses conflicts that men face in everyday life by examining the life of Samson. But, the lesson isn't left there. Rather than trying from one man's brokenness and failures, Gene offers Christ as the example men should follow, model, and pursue. Jesus is portrayed as, not the opposite of Samson, but a complete man who's life honors God. By having an example of what to do, Gene counters many male books that focus solely on sexual sin or blaming the father for one's shortcomings. Each chapter is a conversation to itself, yet they build on each other, making "An Angel in the Flame" a great classroom book. Though some chapters fall short of perfect, the discussion produced is often profitable. It is easily taught because of the accompanying questions at the end of each chapter. The text is scripture rich and based on sound theology. It is good for conservative, progressive, and emergent audiences.
 
Stirred my heart.  Oct 22, 2008
This book gave me a different perspective on Samson because of the author's intriguing way of contrasting him with Jesus. Each chapter takes the reader through a slice of Samson's life, a man who was set apart by God before he was conceived to rescue Israel from her enemies. The author portrays him as entirely self-absorbed, pursuing self-gratification in every human encounter. It was a character flaw that prevented him from fully realizing the great calling to which God had called him. He stands in stark contrast to the wonderfully self-sacrificing Son of God who was fully and intensely committed to following the calling bestowed upon him by His father. I found this book entertaining to read but admit that with each chapter I was repeatedly forced to face up to the ways I resemble Samson more than Jesus. Despite that, I was repeatedly reminded by the author that "This paradox of God working through bad choices gives me hope today." For me, the importance of seeing Samson as the author portrays him is that it gave me a more insightful look at my own heart and a wonderfully fresh look at Jesus. I was reminded again that despite the fact that I look more like Samson than Jesus, "God gets His work of redemption done." The author is engaging and transparent. You may argue with some portions of this book, but your heart will be moved by the beauty of our Lord.
