The Solomon Seduction by Mark Atteberry

“The Solomon Seduction – What You Can Learn From the Wisest Fool in the Bible” by Mark Atteberry was a pleasant surprise of a read. I’m not really sure what I expected, but this book exceeded those expectations in both the content and the delivery.

Atteberry breaks the material down into ten “wake-up calls” for today’s modern man – and it is geared toward men, although I feel there is much content female readers could benefit from as well.

Some of those wake-up calls are when;

  • Sin seems like a good idea
  • Your glory is more important that God’s glory
  • Sin management seems like a better choice than repentance
  • Your faithful friends are troubled by your behavior

All of these are backed up by examples from the life of Solomon as he begins, and continues, his downward spiral away from God.

In each section, Atteberry provides warning signs and signals of the condition as well as ways to remedy and return to closer walk with God.

Also included in the book is a study guide for use in small groups.

“The Solomon Seduction” is a timely work and well worth the read by any man who is concerned about the temptations in the world today. It will guide you back in repentance, or keep you on track. I recommend it.
