Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and #1 Los Angeles Times bestselling author, will release his newest book, Persevere with Power: What Heaven Starts, Hell Cannot Stop (Chosen Books), Tuesday, Oct. 5. In Persevere with Power, Rodriguez examines the trials, temptations and triumphs of Old Testament prophets Elijah and Elisha and applies the lessons they learned to modern-day believers' circumstances.
"In this book we will take a hard look at what it means to persevere with power - to walk in the confidence that hell cannot stop the prophetic anointing that God has placed on your life," Rev. Samuel Rodriguez writes in the introduction. "Put another way, you will learn how to keep your hand to the plow spiritually. If you are willing to do this, to push your plow spiritually, then you can know that God's mantle of anointing and power is waiting for you. And when God's mantle rests on your shoulders, then nothing or no one can stop you!"
Each chapter of Persevere with Power shows readers how to:
- Remain faithful to God and experience His power and provision
- Discover God's guidance for the time and season they are in
- Learn how the plow of perseverance always leads to a mantle of promotion
- Get their family, their spiritual hunger and their dream back
What others are saying about Persevere with Power:
"The cancer journey I've been on, plus the COVID lockdown, have been serious challenges to my momentum in service. Thank you, Sammy Rodriguez, for your fascinating insights into Elijah and Elisha, as well as the richness of your teaching, that have encouraged me to persevere with power. This is a book I will re-read and share with others."

"Samuel colorfully illustrates that when we infuse the 'Anointed Antibodies' of the Spirit against the infection of sin and failure, we become fully 'equipped to overcome, to defeat, to conquer and to triumph over the enemy.' A profound and timely book that is sure to help you persevere with power."
Trinity Broadcasting Network
"Samuel Rodriguez shines a light on two Old Testament prophets who God used and blessed because they were obedient to God's clarion call in the midst of a corrupt society. Readers will be captivated as they learn what God can do through those who faithfully take up the mantle of God's leading and persevere with power."

Although we find ourselves in challenging and desperate times, he proves through this book that we are not without hope! This is a must-read for everyone who needs a reminder that we are not fighting for victory; we are fighting from victory."

"My dear brother Sam Rodriguez, whom I have known for about 15 years, speaks clearly, writes convincingly and leads biblically. From hearing him talk before thousands to sitting over a meal talking man-to-man, I have come to know Sam as sincere in his life and rooted in his convictions. In our polarized world, Sam does not look for a middle ground but a higher ground, pointing others to Jesus."

When you're with Christ, you're on the winning side!"
