Losing the Cape Review

Book Review: 

The DC Comics® and Marvel® franchises have made millions in the superhero genre. From Batman to Superman, superheroes come with all sorts of skills and gadgets to help them save the day. Fortunately for us, God has given us the Holy Spirit to help us declare victory over our enemy.

Even though the world is obsessed with superheroes and celebrities, it only takes one ordinary person used by God to accomplish incredible things. This is the gist of Dan Stanford’s “Losing the Cape”. In his book, he discusses how we can use our God-given potential and change the world. He encourages readers to “embrace ordinary”.

Despite Stanford’s book containing many tweetable phrases, the book didn’t reach full potential at least until he shared his testimony,. I can understand why he didn’t lead with this story, but I think he should have.

Even with the inspiring stories, colorful anecdotes and spiritual wisdom, it was tough to get through. The book gained speed toward the middle but lost steam as it neared the end. I found it difficult to finish.
