Robert Greene’s best-selling ‘The 48 Laws of Power’ re-packages the humanistic Machiavellian philosophy for a new generation, but to what extent has the humanistic philosophy of the Niccolò Machiavelli’s ‘The Prince’ seeped into the Church’s orthopraxy? Why do so many Christian ministries which claim to believe in the sovereignty of God seem to put more stock in the power of man when it comes to accomplishing their ministry? What is the answer to this false view of life? These issues are addressed in this message from American Vision’s Director of Ministry Advancement delivered yesterday to a church plant in West Cobb County in Georgia.
Robert Greene’s ‘The 48 Laws of Power’ has been acclaimed as “THE BESTSELLING BOOK FOR THOSE WHO WANT POWER, WATCH POWER, OR WANT TO ARM THEMSELVES AGAINST POWER . . . Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this piercing work distills three thousand years of the history of power into forty-eight well-explicated laws. As attention-grabbing in its design as it is in its content, this bold volume outlines the laws of power in their unvarnished essence, synthesizing the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun-tzu, Carl von Clausewitz, and other great thinkers.”
