Kenny Luck’s book, “Soar,” is a book to help you discover the freedom of living in God’s power. The title of the book is an acronym.
Saying “yes” to the Holy Spirit.
Opening your life to His work inside of you.
Actively pursuing and partnering with the Holy Spirit
Releasing powerfully the ministry of the Holy Spirit to a waiting world.
If you ask me, the book could’ve been simplified to the very first letter: “Saying YES to the Holy Spirit,” but then you would have a very short book. Kenny Luck is the men’s pastor at Saddleback Church and his book is targeted to men in the context of a men’s group.
I really didn’t get into the book and yet at the same time it was hard for me to find anything wrong with it. It seemed to cover the basics about living in relationship with the Holy Spirit and yet it seemed to leave me a little flat. Perhaps this was because I did not read and discuss it in a small group. There are good group discussion questions at the back of the book.
I did like a lot of the illustrations that Kenny Luck used to make some of his points. (I filed away quite a few of them) I especially liked the Michael May story (p.82) in which he tells a true story about a man regaining his sight and how that relates to what happens when we gain our spiritual sight.
I gave the book three out of five stars. I wouldn’t say the book was a waste of time, but at the same time I wouldn’t say that this was a book that you couldn’t put down.
