Book Description

July 22 2009
THERE'S GREATNESS INSIDE OF YOU "...Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew My power in thee, and that My Name might be declared throughout all the earth." You were meant to be great. Regardless of color, culture, profession, gender, and background there are seeds of greatness in you that need to be cultivated. Understand that God has a purpose and a plan for your life. He Himself said, "'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'" In this book you will learn: • What true greatness means • Why greatness means nothing without service • The necessity of applying time-tested principles • Why great people tend not to fit it • Why desire is necessary before any great work can be accomplished • Why God is always focused on sound character first and promotion second • The principles great people apply to become great • Why greatness was never meant just for you And much more... Know that it's God's desire to raise you up-and He's been preparing you for that purpose. He's been getting you ready through every test, every trial, every setback, every victory...and deep down...you always knew it yourself. The time to unlock your greatness is now! Michael Holmes lives in Queens, NY with his family. He can be reached at Michael_holmes@ymail.com.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Shall Raise Thee Up by Michael Holmes March 20 2010
By Michael Gonzalez - Published on Amazon.com
I Shall Raise Thee Up, is a necessary read for all. It speaks to all people regardless of intellect, cultural, class, or background. Mr. Holmes speaks to all of us within practical everyday terms of the adversities we all face in our walk through, what we call life on this planet.

Relevant to our times, Mr. Holmes offers five time-tested and proven Biblical principles for dealing with and overcoming the adversities we all face. Whether on the job or at home, whether we are poor or rich in material things, poor or rich in our faith, whether we are someone of stature or not as the world defines, this book will speak volumes to you. Mr. Holmes shows us where exactly to put our attention to attain a life not only fulfilling to us personally but beneficial to all whom we meet and interact with in our daily lives.

As a prolific reader, this is the first book that I have read in thirty years that has managed to "be all things to all people" without compromising the message of Jesus Christ. This is in direct line of "Saul of Tarsus" who became "Paul the Apostle" who was all things to all people without ever compromising the message of the Gospel of Truth.

If you are not a reader, purchase and download the audio. Well articulated by Mr. Holmes, you will find what you need to get you going in the right direction for your life. Whether you are a believer in Jesus Christ, a non-believer, or a follower of some other faith, this book will most definitely impact your life for the better.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Shall Raise Thee Up - Powerful Insights March 15 2010
By Harry Tucker - Published on Amazon.com
I recommend "I Shall Raise Thee Up" to anyone wondering how the wisdom of Scripture can be applied to the complexities of life in the 21st century. With captivating stories, engaging discussion questions and powerful use of quotes from Scripture, Mr. Holmes shows us how the wisdom of Scripture is truly timeless. If you are seeking insight into how Scripture can help you become more engaged in life personally and professionally, then I recommend you read this book.

One of the reasons I found the book to be so engaging is that it has just the right balance of quotes from enlightened people, wonderful stories and anecdotes, appropriate Scriptural references and excellent analysis of how we tie all of this together to apply Scripture in our lives.

Many books get too deep or academic in their application of Scripture to real life. Others are too fluffy and the reader is left lost and wondering "I still don't get it".

"I Shall Raise Thee Up" strikes the perfect balance between these two extremes and will resonate with many students of Scripture.

This is definitely a recommended read.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Shall Raise Thee Up By Michael Holmes March 10 2010
By Dan Black - Published on Amazon.com
I have read many leadership, business, and inspirational books; but "I Shall Raise Thee Up" is one of a kind. It provided me with new principles and thoughts on being a great person and leader. Michael Holmes uses stories, life examples, and the word of God to share timeless principles. He talks about what greatness is and the kind of character it takes to be great. Some of the laws he talks about include: The Law of Vision, The Law of Persistence, and The Law of Stewardship.

One of the many thoughts I took away from this book was when Michael said," We tend to become like whatever we view or study for a length of time. To see better is to become better, to see more is to become more, and to see greater is to become greater" (Chapter on the Law of Vision). I believe the power of that statement. Where you will be in five years will be determined by the books you read and the people you're around. So to be great or successful we need to "view or study" on the things that will allow us to accomplish great things for God.

In the Law of Stewardship Michael Says, "Before anyone is entrusted with big things they're first tested with small things." We can see this law at work throughout the bible and history. God always starts small and then goes from there. What God gives he expects much in return.

This is a book you will want to read with a highlighter or pen. I already have and will continue to recommend this book to others. This is a must read for every Christian and business leader.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Shall Raise Thee Up hits the ground running March 9 2010
By Gary Unger - Published on Amazon.com
I Shall Raise Thee Up parallels what God does with his people. Raise Thee Up will keep you grounded in truth, remind you of who you are, give you vision for the future and above all give glory to God for his mercies in all of it and He shall raise you up.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Shall Raise Thee Up by Michael Holmes March 9 2010
By Monica I. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Michael Holmes has written an engaging book using solid Christian principles to apply to our lives. Although anyone can read this book, clearly the writer does not veer from the teachings of Jesus Christ in an uncompromising stand linking success to relationship with Christ.
