In Honor’s Reward, bestselling author John Bevere unveils the power and truth of an often-overlooked principle-the spiritual law of honor. Bevere explains that understanding the vital role of this virtue will enable readers to attract blessing both now and for eternity.
Bestselling author and international conference speaker Bevere (Driven by Eternity and Bait of Satan) is known for his trademark theme of believing in God for the impossible. Fans won't be disappointed by the similar "all things are possible" tone in this book on the need to integrate the principle of honor into every aspect of life, both functionally and spiritually. Bevere's focus on the biblical doctrine of honoring those "governing authorities," whether in the civil, church, family, and social arena, is substantiated through scripture. Still, many in non-charismatic evangelical churches will take issue with the author's presumptive stance on ministers' right to receive "double honor" in the form of material wealth. Recounting the numerous times he has witnessed opulent gifts and preferential treatment bestowed upon him and other Christian servants as outward signs of being "honored," Bevere provides an endless litany of hotel accommodations, presents, and the like. This reads as distasteful and greedy when contrasted with the fact that even Christ had nowhere to lay his head. The principle of honor is a worthy one, but Bevere's approach deteriorates too frequently into a what's-in-it-for-me tenor.
This was a great read. We are doing a series in our church to touch on this subject. Feel it’s definitely missing from the upcoming cancel culture generation and perhaps bringing attention to it will help. Thank you.
Most helpful book I’ve read thus far.
Honor’s Reward has been so helpful to me. It has taught me the importance of honor, including the different ways we are to honor one another, the high cost of dishonor, and the great reward that comes from honoring others. I am so thankful for the teaching of this book and the encouragement to honor God from the heart. I encourage everyone to read this. I did not realize the reward I was lacking until I read this book. Also, Mr. Bevere’s writing style is great and easy to read. Please start printing this book again; it is so good!
