Book Review: The Samson Syndrome

Book by Mark Atteberry
The Samson Syndrome
What you can learn from the Baddest Boy in the Bible
By  Mark Atteberry

Why do some strong men fail while others succeed? Like the biblical character Samson all strong men - those who are successful influential self confident aggressive or widely respected - face twelve tendencies that can lead to sin and even personal tragedy. The adventurous and gifted Samson whose story is told in four chapters of the book of Judges never had the intention of fighting against God.

He was just  a fun loving guy looking for a good time. Like so many strong men today he didn't think his sin was any big deal. But it's clear as you read his story the older he got the more sin held him in its grip. The Samson Syndrome is a set of twelve challenges that strong men ail always face. Obstacles like lust ignoring good advice big egos fears of authentic intimacy losing sight of the big picture and others have the ability to be any man's undoing. Atteberry's mission is to remind men of the joy of living within God's boundaries because he believes there's a little samson in all of us. With God's help we're capable of such great things. But we're never more than one bad choice away from humiliation. However it doesn't have to be that way if you want to fulfill your God given potential.

Mark Atteberry is the award winning author of eleven books. He has been the preaching minister of Poinciana Christian Church in Kissimmee Florida since 1989. A popular speaker he has preached and led workshops at countless churches, conferences, colleges, and retreats. He is married to Marilyn his high school sweetheart. Although I'm not the targeted audience for this book, I really like The Samson Syndrome, it takes sin for what it is and teaches you how to manage your life.
