Although I spent most of my life in church, I was lost. The story begins with a crisis of faith: I actually looked at the sky and asked, “Who are you? Tell me what to do and I will do it.” Those words and the actions that followed unlocked the pathway to knowing God, hearing His voice, and reaping the rewards of doing His Word. The remainder of the book is the revealing journey of building an intimate relationship with Jesus through experiences directly footnoted to Bible verses. It is a testament that God Performs His Word, and reveals much about His character as He uses situations and experiences to teach lessons to be applied, not forgotten.
This book is unique in that Jesus teaches lessons directly through experiences and communicates His assessments concerning the outcomes so the reader can get a rarely seen, powerful understanding of God’s perspective on His Word. Frequently throughout the book, Jesus uses situations to impart characteristics of His heart as well as His emotions. The most important aspect of this book is the main theme: a personal journey of an ordinary man observing remarkable results through diligently seeking God. Thus, anyone who reads it will identify with the journey because there is nothing special about the author, yet the responses from God are extraordinary, in both direct communication as well as the performance of His Word.
Many books teach the reader what must be done (devotions, reading God’s Word, etc.) but this is a life changing book which teaches the reader (through engaging real-life stories), how to engage the heart through proof of God performing specific verses in His Word when the author obeys His commands. This is the story of a quest to know Jesus, and how He engages those who pursue Him. True personal stories reveal the truth of God’s Word, the importance of understanding it, and the spiritual progress accomplished by actually doing it. This is no ordinary book; it proves through direct interaction with Jesus how sanctification is accomplished. It entertains while teaching, touches the heart while convicting, transforms while provoking, and incites the reader to engage the heart. This book has approximately 79,000 words and contains over 500 footnotes to Bible verses as well as many quotations of scripture within the text, which reveal true Hebrew and Greek meanings that illuminate the hidden path to knowing the Creator.
You should read it for yourself. It will change your life … it sure changed mine.

Scott focuses on his real-life experiences and how God uses those day-to-day life moments to teach him profound spiritual lessons. There is something in this book for all believers who know there is something missing in their relationship with God; but cannot put their finger on it. The author has a real knack for fleshing out the non-essentials and bringing laser focus on the things that really matter in our walk with God.

Scott’s spiritual journey and the building of his relationship with the one true God is one that any man or woman can relate to. This book is a compelling revelation of what God can do to transform our human and sinful nature into a life that is spiritually deep, rich, and abundant through obedience to God’s Word. Scott provides a practical approach on how to execute that obedience and thus have a deeper and more meaningful relationship with our Lord and Savior – Jesus Christ. The personal examples and revelations that the Lord imparted to Scott through people, places and circumstances shows us that our Lord meets us right where we are, and teaches us what we can do to follow him and have a more intimate relationship with him. I pray the Lord will use this book to lead many souls to Christ and I thank God for Scott’s perseverance and discipline in completing this work.

The Making of Godly Warrior highlights the daily lessons learned in God’s “spiritual boot camp”. In an otherwise non-transparent world, Harris takes off his mask and reveals the good, the bad, and the ugly associated with walking in obedience to the word of God. He gains spiritual understanding while being misunderstood. He willingly embraces the seeming restrictive commands of God and experiences the liberation that only obedience provides. On the Potter’s wheel he remains, being shaped, and fashioned into the man he is called to be. In these pages, an effective, transformative tension is introduced. Allow yourself to be wooed into a deeper affection for, and obedience to, the word of God. Experientially know, that faith and wisdom travel the same road together as do love, grace and obedience. Take from these pages that which will further shape you into the warrior God is calling you to be and shore up those pillars of truth keeping you victorious in Christ

On a group tour in Israel, my husband and I, attached ourselves to Scott and his wife Gigi. We liked them! I got to get to know this friendly man’s intense Bostonian personality. I could see how God has gentled him. In his first book, Scott tells how God was willing to hear his bold challenge to “Show me what to do and I’ll do it.” Scott Harris is evidence that God will take an honest challenge! Proving change in life is possible no matter how late we ask, Scott was willing to do whatever He said. Scott precisely records each step of what he heard from the Lord on disciplines to practice, confirmed in the living Word and by his response of obedience. He wants others to be able to discover God is faithful to change and use us if we are serious to follow His ways. I found his testimony easy to read; it piqued my curiosity and stimulated questions from within. This book is just the beginning for Scott; I am counting on more discoveries by this warrior.
