Book Review: Finding Favor with the King by Tommy Tenney

Preparing For Your Moment In His Presence

Some books aren’t worth buying or reading. Some books are worth reading once. Some books are worth storing for a possible re-read. And others are worth re-reading and even studying. This book is the latter.

This book also is not a breeze-through-it type of book but a stop-and-ponder or even a stop-and-pray type of book.

It’s main message is the book of Esther and could have been titled or subtitled something like, Esther Unveiled or Esther Revealed.

The author starts out by telling the readers why the story is relevant and important for today.

For each point not only does he use the story of Esther but uses historical information and personal stories and weaves expertly back and forth between these tying each point back to Esther and at times to what Jesus did for us.

I found this book to be the opposite of boring. Instead it was truly fascinating, just a bit less than riveting. And even though at times he repeats things for emphasis it is not boring because he does it in such a way as to uncover a new facet or a new insight of the truth.

Mr. Tenney also writes in such a way as to incite desire—you will want to become a true worshipper in the King’s Presence after reading this book.

A few choice tidbit quotes from the book:

With relationship comes access, and with intimacy comes influence. (p. 76)

Pure motives and passionate pursuit of the King’s face is what will also bring you to that place of favor. (p. 124)

…preparation trumps permission in the presence of the king. (p.146)

Nothing attracts God’s presence and His intervening power like focused and single-minded worship. (p.164)

If you are hungry for more of God, are in need of his favor, are in need of his power or simply want to be more hungry for God, this book is for you.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764200178, Paperback)

Tenney takes readers to Esther's pre-Islamic Persia to uncover the secrets that helped her win the heart and gain the ear of the king and save her people from destruction. A Jewish girl of no royal heritage was chosen to become the Queen of Persia. Was it her beauty alone, or did she know an important and mysterious truth? Tenney challenges his readers to move beyond formal petitions or even "storming the gates of heaven" to that intimate embrace of worship where the bride's petitions move the King's heart and where kingdoms, people, and situations begin to shift like pawns on a divine chessboard.
