Item Description...
Discover God's plan for delegating His authority to ordinary people enabling them to fulfill their God-appointed destiny. We instinctively yearn to walk in a place of authority, in a place of power. And so we should-we were created in God's image, and we bear His authoritative likeness deep in our spirit. Yet many of us never seem to discover the fullness and the power of the God-image that we bear. Our family relationships are in disarray; we never really experience any kind of power in the spiritual realm; we seem stuck in a negative job situation. We feel powerless to bring positive change into our lives. Why? Because we have not learned how to live in a way that releases God's authority in our personal lives. In Kingdom Authority, you will discover the biblical principles that will enable you to fulfill your destiny as a person of authority. As you apply God's authority principles, you can expect to see a release of His power in your life.

Publishers Description
Become a person of authority; apply God's principles in three strategic areas of your life. Kingdom Authority outlines God's plan for your authority in a practical, easy to follow format.

Thoughtful Pastoral Perspective  Dec 10, 2005
You can hear the author's care for people as you read this book. His statement, "We must never lose sight of the fact that God delegates His authority to us for the good of those that we lead" exemplifies the posture of this insightful book. Peachy offers practical counsel for navigating the sometimes hazardous journey of applying authority in the home, church and civil marketplace. This book is certainly a worthy contribution to conversation about healthy leadership. Thanks for writing, Glen.
Awesome Book!  Mar 7, 2005
I just finished reading this book and I loved it! Mr. Peachey brings many insights into an already foggy subject of authority within the church and the secular world. I felt that because of his apparent experience that he was speaking from both a leadership position and from the position of a layman. The points that he expresses are very thought provoking and convicting, making one re-examine their interactions within the church. I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it to anyone with a desire to come under kingdom authority!
Poorly written, Obvious Information, Chaotic Content  Feb 12, 2005
I don't even know where to begin with the critique of this book (even calling it a "book" is an insult to anyone who has ever written a book - let's just call it a jumbled mess of words on paper). I gave this author, Glen Peachey, a one star rating only because it appears that he knows the subject matter very well (otherwise, I would have opted for zero stars). Moreover, it seems that authority is his life mission which makes the book an easy read. However, this ownership over authority also can come across as creepy and dark at some points throughout the book. The blurred line between acceptable authority in leadership and total domination over other people was crossed many times in various chapters. It was evident to me that Peachey did not have an acceptable understanding of social norms concerning authority, which sets up a very dangerous relationship between pastor and congregation. How many countless times in the church do we see pastors and other leaders abuse their authority? When church leaders feel that they have limitless ordained authority from God, the end result in many cases is uncontrolled power that can pull apart congregations and force other leaders of differing opinions out of the church community. I am sure Peachey would not disagree with me, but this was not covered anywhere in the book. And when you write an entire book about authority, you had better include the dark side as well. As I read through the book, I was always left with a feeling of coldness & antipathy. Although this is an obvious passion of Peachey, he failed greatly at connecting with the readers. After reading the book, I concluded that Peachey simply wrote a bloviated manual that condones the use of authority as the leader sees fit. It almost reads like a confession that someone would write to try and seek understanding for unacceptable behavior. Pastors and church leaders do not have a right to do whatever they want in the church just because they claim authority from God. Remember we are all fallible human beings who need the accountability of other human beings. Have we not learned lessons from Jimmy Baker, Jimmy Swaggart, and countless other pastors who should have had equal authority under God over them?? Peachey totally missed all of this in the book.

The reason I chose to read this book was out of curiousity to how the author approaches the issue of authority. It is a very hot topic for us Christians today, and we need some understanding of what the power balance should be between leader and congregation. As a congregation, we give the leaders a big chunk of our salary, entrust them with teaching our children, donate countless hours of personal time, and represent Christ to the outside community. So this book is very timely, and the subject matter affects every person involved in a church family. Unfortunately, my biggest fears were fullfilled when I began reading the book. Peachey's three main points, which he calls "basic truths", leaves the door wide open for misuse/abuse of authority and power. I won't disclose these truths (in case you are going to read it - I don't want to ruin it), but the main point is that there are no checks and balances. The door is wide open for the pastor to do whatever he wants and claim it as God's will.

In addition, the content of the subject matter is extremely simplistic, and nothing new is offered. You will turn the pages and yawn, wondering if anything interesting will ever be presented. You will nod your head with each sentence, claiming that you could have easily written that exact same thing (only better). I was surprised to learn that the book is intended for adult readers. I found it to be written at a middle school level, and I am unsure if this writing style was on purpose or simply descriptive of the author. I don't want to come across in a negative way, but this is the only way I can adequately describe it. There is just nothing new in this book that the reader can apply to his/her Christian walk, and you will be disappointed that deeper personal revelations about a pastor's struggle with authority were not discussed.

In conclusion, the subject of authority is becoming very pertinent with the evangelical explosion that we see happening all over the world. Mr. Peachey represents a stance that is held by many in the evangelical world, and this is what scares me the most. The title of the book says it all - "Kingdom Authority". I see a clear difference between God's authority and the pastor's authority. Mr. Peachey clearly sees them as the one in of the same.

Sincerely, Max Sheppard
