FOREWARD

WHATEVER THE COST

Two nationally-acclaimed real estate entrepreneurs share biblical principles to revolutionize your work and family life, and give you the courage to stand up for what is right.

This book follows the story of highly motivated and entrepreneurial twin brothers, David and Jason Benham, from their formative years and ventures into professional baseball to their rise as owners of a multi-million dollar business empire and securing an HGTV reality series.

 

FOREWARD

KINGDOM MEN ARE HARD TO FIND. A KINGDOM MAN IS A MALE WHO consistently functions under the comprehensive rule of God. While men will regularly count the cost for success in the areas of athletics, business, and entertainment, their passion does not often transfer over, as it should, to the spiritual realm. This is why the Benham brothers are so refreshing. They have decided both privately and publicly to take their stand as Christians. Not willing to hang out in the closet of spiritual complacency, they have positioned themselves as beacons of light in the midst of cultural compromise and spiritual mediocrity.

In a world of saccharine celebrities—people who serve as inferior substitutes for the real thing—the Benham brothers stand as a unique model and clear representative of God’s kingdom agenda, which is the visible demonstration of the comprehensive rule of God over every area of life.

The Benham brothers have uniquely wedded technical excellence and spiritual maturity in such a way that clearly demonstrates that biblical manhood is not for chumps. Rather it is the high calling God has for men who are His followers. The Benhams are not just businessmen who are Christians. They are representatives of God, diagnosed as businessmen.

To sit and speak with them personally is to witness the fire of men who have decided that cultural Christianity and religious compromise are not for them. Having counted the cost of full commitment to Christ and His kingdom, David and Jason have cast their lot with their Lord even though it has meant financial loss, public ridicule, and rejection, as well as loss in the level of fame and popularity that this world has to offer.

In Whatever the Cost David and Jason chronicle their story in a vibrant, exciting, and challenging way. It is a story that will challenge every reader—men and women alike—to make a total commitment to Christ. It will encourage and convict you to get off the fence and go all the way with your faith, no matter the price tag. You will also discover that the reward for total commitment, and the inevitable trials that come with it, will be well worth the inconvenience.

The Benham brothers have decided that the applause of heaven is more important than the recognition of men. They have rejected the false notion that the sacred and the secular are two independent realms to be kept separate from each other. Rather they have verbally and visibly demonstrated that God is the ruler over all of life and is not to be divorced nor marginalized by those who dare claim Him as Lord.

No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, this book is for you. Better yet, the God who inspired the writers of the book is for you. These two former baseball players want you to know that it’s time for you to leave the stands, pick up your bat, go to the plate, and swing for the bleachers. There is a world out there desperate for Christ-followers, like the Benham brothers, who will pay the price, whatever the cost.
