This set includes Mark Rutland’s four most recent books:
Of Kings And Prophets
Power is only as strong as the authority that sustains it.
This book will help you be a better leader. It will help you receive a healthy dose of accountability through applied spiritual authority. The biblical prophets did not live or prophesy in a contextual vacuum. They spoke into real-life circumstances to real-life leaders such as kings, queens, governors, and generals. Drawing on biblical accounts, Dr. Mark Rutland shows how these interactions, sometimes in the form of advice but more often as dramatic confrontations, demonstrate the tension between heaven’s authority and the princes of this world. God positions His messengers to confront and advise those who lead in the natural realm. Likewise, Satan is also working to position his own servants near the world’s leaders hoping to steer them away from the things and plans of God. To whom those leaders listen will determine, to a large extent, the fate of nations. God often positions His servants at the right elbow of leaders in a wide range of disciplines, from business to education to entertainment to politics. Every believer should be open to being “God’s prophetic voice” in someone else’s life, whether that person is a child, a boss, or a town councilman. Likewise, every believer should be in constant prayer for and humbly sensitive to wise counsel sent from God as a gift of grace. God makes and unmakes kings. When they can discern and listen to His voice, He sustains their well-wielded authority with His supernatural power.
Courage To Be Healed
This is not a quick-fix book. Nor is it a book that will tell you to pray away your despair. Encounter true inner healing that joins together the power of the Holy Spirit with Christian counseling. Through stories of people finding healing, you can learn how to:
- Confront and accept painful realities from the past
- Deal with unanswered prayers and unmet expectations
- Let go of bitterness toward yourself, others, and God
Mark Rutland invites those who are hurting to be brave, step out, and seek healing.
David The Great
He was a man of unwavering loyalty, great faith, and national vision. A Spirit-led poet with prophetic and Messianic insights that reached beyond the millennia. A musician whose lullabies could soothe a demon-haunted soul. A political leader strong enough to forge a single nation out of disparate tribes. But he was also an adulterer, a murderer, a mercenary raider, and a hated father. He caused suffering among his people with an act of hubris. Ordered the execution of his enemies on his deathbed. Enjoyed many wives and concubines. Most of all, he broke the laws of both God and man. Let’s just say, what you know about King David only scratches the surface.
King David was a complicated, conflicted man of flesh. But too often is he viewed as an Americanized shepherd boy on a Sunday school felt board or a New Testament saint alongside the Virgin Mary. This not only neglects one of the Bible’s most complex stories of sin and redemption, it also bypasses the gritty life lessons inherent in the amazing true story of David.
Dr. Mark Rutland shreds the felt-board character, breaks down the sculpted marble statue, and unearths the real David of the Bible. Both noble and wretched, neither a saint nor a monster, at times victorious and other times a failure, David was through it all a man after God’s own heart.
21 Seconds To Change Your World
When he didn’t have the words to pray, Dr. Mark Rutland turned to the Lord’s Prayer. Through it, he reconnected with God and found comfort, hope, and healing. In this book he reveals how your soul can be renewed in the 21 seconds it takes to pray these words of Jesus.
Dr. Rutland examines the Lord’s Prayer alongside Psalm 23, making the two most familiar prayers of the Bible come alive like never before. You’ll be inspired by stories of lives changed through this practical prayer strategy that works in even the busiest life. Discover for yourself the power of these prayers to bless and heal. In the end, it’s not just about saying the prayers—it’s about getting to know the Lord of the prayers.
