DALLAS, April 18 /Christian Newswire/ -- Every little boy has a dream of one day doing something great. But by the time that boy becomes a man he will likely feel disillusioned by the mundane details and failures of everyday life. In his new book, Dream, Kenny Luck, men's pastor at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, and founder of EveryMan Ministries, turns a common misconception about God's vision for our lives on its head.


The world, even popular thinking in Christian circles, tells men that their lives are meaningful when they have achieved something noteworthy for themselves or for the kingdom of God. But what about the everyday guys—the night janitor, the accountant, the guy in the minivan picking his kids up from school? The likelihood of the average man doing anything the world will truly recognize or remember is slim. These men begin to wonder: Am I significant? Where is the glory in my life?


"Reality says that 5 percent of life is extremely satisfying. Another 5 percent is extremely disappointing," says Kenny. "The rest—the other 90 percent—is just life, plain peanut butter and jelly. Many men think their dreams and the glory that goes with them reside somewhere else, far away from the peanut butter-and-jelly life. In Africa maybe. But the truth is that God's dream for us is not something we chase. It's something we become."


Kenny Luck possesses a unique gift for communicating biblical truths in a manner that speaks specifically to men. God's man will:


  • Decide to let God decide
  • Reside in the glory of his reality
  • Exchange his vision for God's
  • Accept God's process
  • Move his boundaries in continual growth


Kenny is the coauthor of six widely successful Every Man books, including the best-selling Every Man, God's Man. Dream is the second in the God's Man series. An accompanying Dream Workbook offers an easy-to-use, hands-on guide for personal or group study.
