Jakes (Instinct), author of more than 25 books and "bishop" of the popular nondenominational syndicated TV show the Potter's Touch, builds on his previous works in this conversational sermon, proposing a framework for readers to discover their purpose and achieve their full potential. According to Jakes, we are all placed on the Earth for a specific purpose that can only be discovered by listening to our instincts. In this book, he takes the next step: "Instinct must merge with purpose to find Destiny." Jakes, a no-nonsense speaker and author, writes directly about common problems he encounters in his ministry. He provides supportive advice for a range of hypothetical situations (relating to extra-marital temptations, laziness at work, family time management), offering examples from popular culture and history to illustrate his points (though these are often more anecdotal than revelatory). Readers will specifically learn how to prioritize wisely; decide what works best for their unique gifts and talents; protect the undervalued commodity of time; push past failure; and find the courage to actively pursue their destinies. Jakes's passion for life and colloquial style translate effortlessly from screen to page. This book of hard-nosed spiritual advice is an uplifting rally cry for self-determination. (Aug.)
