Pastor and cofounder of the Bethel School of Ministry Kris Vallotton walks Christians through the profound process of discovering their true identity and experiencing the wonder of their kingdom purposes.
Christians are often told that they were born with a purpose that reaches beyond their human strivings, but most are not sure how to break past the daily struggles holding them back, much less how to fully step into their callings.
As a pastor and the cofounder of the Bethel School of Ministry, Kris Vallotton has been teaching Christians all over the world how to walk in wholeness and purpose for more than 17 years. In Destined to Win, he passes on the lessons that will help readers discover who they really are, overcome destructive behaviors, and become equipped for their kingdom purposes.
Confronting the challenges that limit Christians - such as living shackled by past pain, fear, and unforgiveness - Vallotton offers practical solutions to the often complex problems that undermine their destinies and derail their purposes. With personal stories and biblical teaching, Destined to Win combines practical wisdom and profound revelation to unlock the latent potential present in each person.

Lives Up to Its' Title
Having sat under the teaching of Kris for years in Bethel Church, I've appreciated his simple and blunt, yet humble style of communication. Destined to Win continues in his genuine vein of imparting truths designed to being awareness and freedom to ones life, which implicitly gives people permission to be human, yet calls them to nobility. I love this about his words, and this book.
I might compare Destined to Win with The 8th Habit by Stephen R. Covey, in that they both focus on helping individuals and organizations maximize their innate potential, but Destined to Win is much more explicit about the role God plays in making this happen.
Kris's candid admission of his personal style of external processing was one of my favorites. In addition, his discussion of the Nobility "bus", or group of people helped me to to discover my voice in a new way. Now I realize why it often has taken extra work for me to connect with others. Learning about this is very cathartic and helps me to see that I need to put forth more effort to connect with others of my "tribe", and gives me hope that there is a group of people to which I belong, dispelling the notion that I'm alone.
Yes. It's mix of principles with concrete stories and illustrations made it relatable and interesting, although to get the most out of the book there are certain question posed by Kris which one might be interested in answering to discover more about themselves and their organization.
It's a strong book that was certainly worth the purchase price, especially since I'm Christian and am cut from the same clothe as Bethel Church. However, this does not preclude others from getting a lot out of Destined to Win since his simple and direct language doesn't use too much "Christianese."
I would add that the ending, though valuable, is not a strong finish. I look for books to have a strong, memorable ending, but Destined to Win unfortunately neglects this formality of writing. This mistake notwithstanding, if read and applied, this book would surely change the life of anyone who read it and give them the tools and courage to change their world.
