Abstract:
"You Can Destroy What Steals Your Strength Just like Superman, who can leap over any hurdle and defeat every foe, followers of Christ have the supernatural ability to conquer the challenges we face. But the problem for both Superman and us is there's a kryptonite that steals our strength. Of course, both Superman and kryptonite are fictional. But spiritual kryptonite is not. This book offers answers to why so many of us are unable to experience the divine strength that was evident among first-century Christians. In Killing Kryptonite, John Bevere reveals what this kryptonite is, why it's compromising our communities, and how to break free from its bondage. Not for the faint of heart, Killing Kryptonite is anything but a spiritual sugar high. This is serious truth for any Christ-follower who longs to embrace the challenging but rewarding path of transformation."--Amazon.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Bevere (The Bait of Satan), Christian minister and cofounder of the missionary organization Messenger International, fills this insightful book with the allurements and powerful effects of sin. Likening sin to kryptonite (the otherworldly substance that could hurt Superman), Bevere surveys the current religious scene and worries that churches and their leaders are not sufficiently equipping members to confront the dangers of modernity and the ever-increasing enticements of the world. Among those dangers, he cites wealth and greed, divorce, corruption, inaction, idolatry, and intolerance. Chapters are short and meant to be read in one sitting. Each is followed by a "Take Action" section for integrating Bevere's principles into everyday life; these include suggested prayers and prompts for contemplation on life. God is "looking for those who will stand and speak against the sins that are working to fill our churches today," Bevere writes. He is uncompromising in his strong, orthodox opposition to he perceives as the erosion of Christian standards in the modern church. He clearly wants to be among those answering the call against sin as he implores others in the Christian community to join him. If creeping compromise is indeed the kryptonite of the modern church, then Bevere stands on solid ground in his passion for holiness and purity. This accessible book will invigorate Christians.
