KINGDOM MAN Every Man's Destiny... Every Woman's Dream
Dr Anthony Evans
When a man follows the principles of biblical manhood, those around him benefit from his leadership and care. Kingdom Man challenges and equips men to fully understand their position under God as well as their position over what God has given them. The biblical definition of a man is one who has learned to operate under the authority of Jesus Christ while carrying out responsible and legitimate leadership within the sphere of influence that God has placed him. Kingdom Man provides concepts men can follow that will help them to actively pursue ways to maximize and develop the character qualities of biblical manhood in their lives.
It is 1936 and the world is slowly heading towards the brink of yet another global conflagration. Hitler however, is still three years away from invading Poland. But US track athlete Jesse Owens faces a different kind of hurdle apart from winning multiple track races the 1936 Berlin Olympics - that of racial prejudice.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT:Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others.
It's been three years since Traci Waites came on the scene as head coach of the Pittsburgh women's basketball team, and three attributes have remained the same since her first day on the job: passion, enthusiasm and desire.
