In The Way of the Dragon or the Way of the Lamb, by Jamin Goggin and Kyle Strobel, power is the enemy. Power comes from the ways of below. People need to walk in the ways from above. It is through time, experience, and Jesus that one gains power, or, for a better term, control. Power of love is one of the good forms of power. There are many bad forms of power in the world today, however. There is money, personality, racism, and so many others. Again, it is important to refrain from these powers and walk in the ways of God.
The message of this book is very clear: Power is a sin. The authors try to make the book interesting by talking to people that they consider to be very influential at the beginning of the chapters. However, the book gets to be very long and repetitive. This book is more suited towards people that are in very powerful and influential positions such as pastors, presidents, government officials, or even church officials that have a say in what goes on at the church. If a person is not in a position that has lots of responsibility, the book tends to get long and boring.
