What Christian leaders are saying about UPRISING: Time for Christians to Stop Waiting and Start Winning by Mike Arnold:
Wow, this book changed my perspective on Christian activism more than anything I’ve ever read. I highly endorse it as a biblically-based mechanism for stimulating Christians to shake off their lethargy and erroneous internal focus and start reaching outward to win the world for Jesus Christ.
Dr. JY Jones
Physician, missionary and author
UPRISING is not only timely, it’s brilliantly written to fill a void in the way we think as Christians. This book will change your thinking, life, family, and ministry. It is a must-read for every Christian leader regardless of your calling. I highly recommend it.

Mike Arnold’s book UPRISING is a breath of fresh air. He presents the Kingdom of God without any religious frills and helps the ordinary church goer to understand the vital importance of living Kingdom life. This is not a book that just gives more information on the Kingdom; it is a gut-challenging message to be the overcoming, victorious people who will forcefully advance the Kingdom of God in every sphere of our society. UPRISING confronts doctrinal positions that stand in the way of embracing victorious Kingdom living. The reader is left in no doubt that God intends His people in these days to be co-workers with God in difficult times, thus displaying the power of the life of Christ to a desperate, needy and increasingly fearful world. This book that you hold in your hands will provoke further study and a willingness to be a courageous witness to Jesus.

Mike Arnold has unfolded in this book often hidden truths that most see, but few dare to say. His writing and perceptions are much like him as a person – honest, clear and forthcoming. You are a better person for having come in contact with this faithful servant of God.

UPRISING will challenge you to the core. Truth is, it’s easier to sit back and watch and wait. It takes a man or woman with conviction and courage to go to battle; a person who knows we win in the end but recognizes that we are in the fight, and desires to be equipped for victory. Mike Arnold is a man who is most definitely in the battle, and his teaching and illustrations will help empower you to join him and countless others in raising the victory flag
Founder of Transformation: A City Reaching Ministry
As a Bible teacher for over 40 years and in over 30 countries, I have been waiting for a book that expresses the heart of Jesus’ gospel, which is the gospel of the Kingdom. Mike’s perspective of that is accurate, passionate, and portrays our position of victory – now, on this earth – as our prayer states, “Thy Kingdom come Thy will be done, in earth as it is in Heaven!” The theme is to the church – not a select few, or just the ministry, or even a small group of denominations – but the whole church. UPRISING is one of the clear clarion calls to the gospel of the last days, the gospel of the Kingdom!

What a stirring and compelling message about the believer’s true identity and purpose for which our glorious God has designed and ordained us in Christ. For way too long the enemy has been able to condition us, through the Christian Religion, to live far beneath the full scope and magnitude of our true Kingdom destiny. In his book UPRISING, God has inspired Mike Arnold to clearly and accurately (fully supported with both scriptural and historical facts) portray the true Kingdom message Jesus came to preach and give His life to lead us into. If you have begun to sense the stirring of the Holy Spirit to break out of your religious confinements and join God in the most exciting eternal adventure possible, then delve into this great read; stop waiting and start winning.

In the fog of learning and doing many good things, one can lose sight of the main thing. Such a thick fog may very well describe the place the church has been in for centuries now. Then God chooses an unknown like Martin Luther and others to refocus the church and blow away the fog. And in order to remove the many layers which protect the sweet center of some exotic fruit, God has assigned men and women throughout the ages to keep peeling back the layers until finally the heart of the fruit can be enjoyed and shared. He often does not go to the established, learned institutions to choose His champions. On the contrary He regularly chooses the base, the common, the unknown man or woman to reveal profound truth. Mike Arnold is such a vessel. The message in this book is simple, straight forward, powerful and applicable. It teams with spiritual testosterone and will excite and inspire any man that reads it. Women will be awakened by the warrior within them and their call will crystallize. Young people will be able finally make sense of this “church thing” and advance the Kingdom of God in their generation, perhaps like no generation before them. Read. See. Do. Rejoice!

If the King’s children knew who they were, they would engage their world, their culture, their communities, their families and themselves in an entirely new way. This book will help remove the blindness and restore the connection to royal authority that has been stolen.
