"My dear brother Sam Rodriguez 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."

Barry H. Corey, president, Biola University; author, Make the Most of It: A Guide to Loving Your College Years

"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."

Matthew Crouch, president, Trinity Broadcasting Network

"Persevere with Power urges us to study the lives of the biblical heroes of the past so that we might better understand our present and walk with boldness into our future. If you are wondering how to move forward when it feels like life has come to a standstill, then this book is for you."

Dr. Tony Evans, senior pastor, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, Dallas, Texas; founder, The Urban Alternative; bestselling author�

"At a time when the world is in crisis, Persevere with Power is the encouragement we all need. It is real and raw in its discussion of suffering, but it also inspires us to lift our eyes up to the mountains and remember where our help comes from."

Jentezen Franklin, senior pastor, Free Chapel; New York Times bestselling author

"Samuel Rodriguez shines a light on two Old Testament prophets 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."

Franklin Graham, president and CEO, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan's Purse

"In Persevere with Power, my good friend Rev. Rodriguez provides a blueprint for overcoming that should inspire us all. 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."

Pastor Nona Jones, head of faith-based partnerships, Facebook; bestselling author, Success from the Inside Out and From Social Media to Social Ministry

"Elijah and Elisha were God's answer to the evil leadership during the reign of Ahab and Jezebel. These two men were among the most influential prophets of Israel. Their supernatural interventions in national history--and the mighty miracles wrought by the power of God through them--serve as a reminder that the mantle placed upon them can be ours as well. In Persevere with Power, Pastor Samuel Rodriquez challenges his readers to pursue and take hold of the Holy Spirit's power that is given freely to each child of the living God. In this highly engaging and provocative book, you will learn how to tap into a deeper level of faith with courage and commitment, and persevere with the power of the Spirit."

Marcus D. Lamb, founder and president, Daystar Television Network

"It's invigorating to read someone as passionate as Sammy Rodriguez on a subject he knows well. If you're feeling hopeless, exhausted or burdened, you'll come away from Persevere with Power freshly furnished to take on anything the enemy throws at you. When you're with Christ, you're on the winning side!"

Greg Laurie, senior pastor, Harvest Christian Fellowship

"The cancer journey I've been on, plus the COVID-19 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."

Anne Graham Lotz, author, Jesus in Me

"My good friend Sammy Rodriquez tells us how we can rise up and be a light in these dark times. In Persevere with Power, Sammy challenges us to embrace the prophetic power available to us when we trust God. Through the stories of Elijah and Elisha--two men who stood against the evil leadership of their time--he inspires us to move forward in faith. Not only can you survive these times, but you can also receive a double portion of God's anointing! You have the power to overcome this world and leave a legacy for future generations."

Robert Morris, senior pastor, Gateway Church; bestselling author, The Blessed Life, Beyond Blessed and Take the Day Off

"Persevere with Power is a must-read. I love everything Pastor Samuel writes. This book will produce so much power inside of you. Life happens; it's messy and hard at times. But we have the power within us to persevere into greater! I'm changed because of the experiences that God has entrusted to me. This book will direct you into victory!"

Real Talk Kim, senior pastor, Limitless Church

"Powerful! A useful resource for every plowing season of your life. This is a book for those desiring the mantle and willing to push the plow."

Rosie Rivera, CEO, Jenni Rivera Enterprises; author and evangelist

"My friend Sammy Rodriguez never fails to inspire. Throughout these pages, he encourages us to 'keep pushing our plows,' trusting that God is able to knock down any walls blocking our progress. The biblical examples of Elijah and Elisha woven throughout the book are powerful. May we all hunger for a double portion of the Spirit, power and anointing as Elisha desired--and like Elijah, may we seek to pass the mantle to the next generation."

James Robison, founder and president, LIFE Outreach International, Fort Worth, Texas

"When we surrender our own plans and purposes to God's, miracles happen. I know that to be true because my life has been radically transformed by the power of Jesus Christ. No one is beyond redemption and restoration--that is the message at the heart of Persevere with Power."
