Worshipper Warrior

Most men want to be wholehearted—at least in theory. But the twenty-first-century male is anything but zealous and full of life. He is the child of the Sexual Revolution, a demasculinized culture, and, quite frankly, a church where he doesn’t fit. Boutique spirituality and religious posturing has produced a plastic, insecure Christian man who knows nothing of the bloody, wholehearted passion of a man like David. We need Davids.

David is the original wholehearted man! He is, quite frankly, one of the most dangerous men in the Bible. The only character in it called “a man after God’s own heart,” David is raw, gritty, and fully human. In David, we see a man of a rough-edged masculinity who is growing to love God through the actuality of His presence in earthy human conditions. In David, more than any other, we see the deep interior of a soul on fire and passionate about God. He is the type of man with the type of heart that God is raising up today.

The God-Wild Marriage

A God-wild marriage doesn’t begin with your spouse. it begins with God! In The God-Wild Marriage, Author and Pastor Steve Holt describes God’s design for marriage, practically showing you how it should work. Instead of a life of low expectations, he shows you that God is wildly excited about marriage—especially your marriage.

God’s design makes marriage—your marriage—His main vehicle for you and your spouse to experience His dangerous, extravagant love, forgiveness, and power. God has destined your marriage to be the place where His power and holiness are revealed.

With humor and practical advice, Steve shows you that when we follow God’s design, we experience the unpredictable, overcoming, and joyful life He wants for us. The God-Wild Marriage is a roadmap through Ephesians 5:18-33, the Bible’s most dangerous passage on marriage. Steve helps you tackle the thorny issues of marriage.

WORSHIPPER & WARRIOR BOOK ENDORSEMENTS

“Steve Holt’s book on the life of David will transform lives! I know Steve personally, and I can say he speaks from real-life experience. Chapter 14 on Intimacy will help anyone who faces adversity.”

Congressman Doug LambornU.S. Representative for Colorado's 5th Congressional District

“These 21 chapters are a personal and practical life map for a glorious journey toward radical transformation. Steve Holt invites us to dive deep into the character and story of David to discover how we, too, can become men after God’s own heart: men who are fully alive in Christ and decidedly devoted to a passionate—even reckless—pursuit of the Lord. This is not a coffee table devotional for mere moments of quiet reflection; each of these 21-Days is a substantive step toward real and lasting life change. Do not approach Worshipper Warrior casually. Prepare your heart with a vision for the man you want to become, and then allow the Lord to mold you thoroughly in His likeness as each page and life lesson unfolds.”

Dick EastmanInternational President, Every Home for Christ, Best-Selling Author

“The journey that you take as you flip through the pages of this book is nothing short of eye opening. Pastor Steve Holt really dives deep into the life of David to a whole new level I’ve never seen before, the true wholehearted life that David lived and through the real-life experiences Pastor Steve went through really shows us how deep God’s love for us is. Even though David lived an imperfect life, Pastor Steve dives into the true meaning of a worshiper and warrior and how David’s life perfectly portrays that. This book is a must read for all godly men who want to truly walk out a wholehearted life for Christ. ”

Justin StuartYouTube Influencer, MoreJStu, over three million subscribers

“This book is a must for any man…I strongly suggest taking this 21-day challenge. When you do, I’m confident it will be a life changer—it was for me! I have been a Christian for over 35 years, have read and listened to countless sermons and books on what it takes to be a “Godly man,” but Worshipper Warrior not only breaks the mold by clearly and accurately describing King David’s victories and failures, it correspondingly presents real-world examples of real-life experiences that speak directly to what a true warrior for Christ looks like. ”

Jeffrey A PaulkUS Air Force fighter pilot, Colonel (retired)

“This book is so real, so well-written, so biblical, and so practical. Steve's knowledge of God's Word and history, coupled with his transparency and down-to-earth practicality makes this a must read for all men. Not to mention, Steve is just an excellent writer. Oh, women might want to read it also, just because it is so good. You will never be the same after these 21-Days!”

Dr. David HoltAuthor, Pastoring with Passion, Founder and Sr. Pastor of Living Hope Church, Athens, GA.

“I have known Pastor Steve for over 15 years and he is a man of prayer. Praying people are warriors and Steve is a warrior…There are not many books calling for Christian men to be courageous prayer warriors. This book does just that. For every man who desires to make a difference, to lead their families well and to live as a faithful witness, the 21-day challenge is for them. I strongly recommend this timely book and would encourage Churches to use this tool to help their men grow into courageous warriors for Christ.”

Arjuna ChiguluriFounder & CEO of Vision Nationals India, Nepal, and Thailand

“Worshipper Warrior is a gut-level exploration of God’s heart to meet men in the midst of their deepest needs. Pastor Steve leads us on a journey through the life of David, the consummate man’s man…Steve deals with issues like suffering, vulnerability, betrayal, passion, and many others are addressed with the goal of bringing us into a deeper trust in the God who loves us, and a greater commitment to moving forward in confidence that He is leading us ever onward, and ever upward!”

Pastor Brian MichaelsPastor, Springs Lighthouse, Colorado Springs, CO
