Dr. Greg Bourgond just released A Rattling of Sabers, the book that he wrote while at The Kilns as a Scholar-in-Residence in 2009. If you would like to purchase it through Amazon.com, while helping the C.S. Lewis Foundation to earn a referral percentage, click here.
Here is the description of the book:
Men – it is finally ready – a labor of love by God’s grace representing 18 years in the making. I finished the manuscript at the Kilns, C.S. Lewis’ home in Headington England last September. It is now available for purchase at Amazon.com and iUniverse.
This book will help you become men of honor and integrity by aligning your heart with the heart of God. Our behavior, good or bad, is reflective of what’s in our heart. Let the scalpel of God’s word perform surgery on your heart so that your life will bring glory and honor instead of shame and dishonor. The objective of this book is to help you become a man after God’s heart. I encourage you to engage in a life-transforming journey that will teach you to live differently–to live victoriously, to live lives of integrity, courage, authenticity, and valor under God’s authority, Christ’s example, and the Holy Spirit’s empowerment.
Many of you have been supportive of this effort. I am especially grateful for the many endorsements I have received. The book has already been awarded Editor’s Choice and Rising Star status. Among others, the following comments have been made by the following men of honor who have had a significant impact on my life.
Erwin Raphael McManus – Lead Pastor and Architect of Mosaic
“I’ve known Greg Bourgond for about 20 years and I’ve had the opportunity to experience him in a variety of roles. Greg has has had the uncanny ability to adapt to an ever changing world while never allowing the context to change who he is at the core. There are a lot of things Greg Bourgond can talk about at a high level of expertise, but perhaps what he knows best is how to invest in high powered men where their character matches their talent.”
Dr. Neil T. Anderson, Founder and President Emeritus of Freedom in Christ Ministries
“Dr. Greg Bourgond is a God-made leader with the heart of a warrior who knows the battle belongs to the Lord. Greg is a spiritual cardiologist who uses the sword of the Spirit to transform the heart of men. We all need heart surgery and this book is good medicine.”
Dr. J. Robert Clinton, Author of Leadership Emergence Theory
“The underlying strength of this book is the conviction with which Greg writes it. There is authority in his words. Greg has written helpful information for any leader who wants to develop other leaders–especially in terms of their inner character. My advice would be for the reader to actually write up a Personal Battle Plan and share that plan with an upward mentor or peer mentor who can hold the reader accountable. The end result of such an experience will be transformation of inner character–becoming A Man after God’s Heart.”
Strength and Honor,
Greg Bourgond, D.Min., Ed.D.
