Book Review: Disruptive Thinking Author: T.D. Jakes

For most of our lives, we are encouraged to trudge along the well-worn paths of those who have come before us. We learn the rules - in our families, in our schools, in our workplaces, in our churches - and most of the messages we receive tell us that following the rules will allow us to arrive at the lives we desire.

But when change becomes not only desirable but also urgently necessary, this way of being no longer serves us. In fact, in every human endeavour, every major leap forward, has involved a cataclysmic challenge to existing ways of thinking and being. Breakthroughs, by definition, run against the grain and almost always encounter scepticism and opposition.

In this book for leaders, thinkers, doers, and creators, Bishop T.D. Jakes illuminates the pathway to encouraging and unleashing disruptive thinking and provides the wisdom and practical skills we need to evolve our most original and potentially transformational ideas from vision to reality. Through his insight into how our minds and emotions work and through his experiences as a pastor, entrepreneur, and creator, Bishop Jakes leads us into a new way of relating to and transforming the world around us for good. Disruptive Thinking will show you the mindset and the tools you need to create ground-breaking and meaningful change in your own life and in the world around you.

What drew you to read this book?: 

I love and enjoy T.D. Jakes books and his writing style. He has a way of making you think outside the box.

What impact did this book have on your life?: 

It challenged me to be innovate in my thinking. I was reminded how many times the Lord, Jesus Christ was disrupted on His way to do something specific yet He was not fazed. He would attend and respond to what was in front of Him and continue. He was adaptable to an everchanging day, or plan. This book has helped me not to be too rigid in my thinking but be adaptable in the ever changing life in my business.

In a paragraph, what is the main point of this book?: 

The book challenges us market place ministry leaders and or followers of Jesus Christ to think out of the box, see things innovatively and refuse not to allow change take place in how we view things. It also encourages you to live by Faith and not sight! You feel empowered to be able to risk in your journey of life and experience abundance.

Who would benefit from reading this book?: 

Leaders, Mentors, Coaches, Entrepreneurs and Self-Starters
