Ask any person to name the first man to walk on the moon, and most can tell you it was Neil Armstrong. And almost anyone could tell you Charles Lindberg made the first solo transatlantic flight. Few would know that Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay first successfully scaled Mt. Everest, but our admiration is no less because we don't remember their names. As a society, we reward, revere, and respect firsts and the courageous men and women who achieve them. Rod Parsley calls these individuals breakers.
"Breakers look at barriers as merely building blocks to further feats of achievement," Parsley writes. "They refuse to take life at face value, believing that greatness lies beyond the next barrier. With fierce determination and fearless courage, they break through what others believed was impenetrable."
Parsley contends that God is raising a modern generation of breakers to achieve His purposes. We have the perfect model in Jesus Christ, the "First of all firsts" who shattered the barrier between divinity and humanity, proving Himself to be "the Breaker who goes before us." Through Scripture and insight, Rod Parsley passionately urges Christians to break out in obedience and become modern-day Samsons, Deborahs, Esthers, and Stephens.
