Have you found yourself in circumstances you never envisioned, tangled up with people you never approved of, and doing things you never imagined?
It seems impossible that the valedictorian of the entire human race would ruin his life by making dumb choices, but Solomon did. Solomon was better equipped to see through Satan’s deceptions than any man who has ever lived, other than Jesus. But in the end, he became just as blind to them as everyone else.
Pay attention to the news and you’ll see that it’s not just the numbskulls that fall into Satan’s traps. It’s also the best and brightest of America’s fathers, husbands, and sons. Many smart guys who love God end up being ashamed and humiliated by Satan’s seductions. With humor, grace, and a pastor’s heart, Mark Atteberry seeks to offer practical suggestions on how to avoid a similar fate. His prayer for readers is to experience a wake-up call to move forward and determined on an upward path.
If you could sum up The Solomon Seduction in three words, what would they be?
Three words would be extremely limited and not do it justice.This book offers a different view of the ubiquitous story of Solomon.This book presents what mile markers to be aware of when heading down the wrong path and what to do to avoid it. Practical biblical information that can transcend any male generation and for years to come.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Solomon Seduction?
For me, it was the stark contrast of Solomon's heart when he became king and the closing years of his life. How "our love" for God can stay the same yet our obedience diminishes. Though Solomon's ending wasn't glorious, his life was an ironic lesson for those that choose to learn from the wisest fool that ever lived.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
