Sandcastle Kings

Meeting Jesus in a Spiritually Bankrupt World

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The world seems to have figured out the formula for manufacturing material success, but when it comes to finding true, lasting happiness, we are as lost as ever. We yearn for more, or less, or something that’s just different from what we have right now.Deep down, we know there must be satisfaction for our longing. We just don’t know where to find it.

In Sandcastle Kings, Rich Wilkerson, Jr. uses four powerful stories from the seventh chapter of Luke to explain why spiritual fulfillment cannot be found in ourselves, in other people, in material things, or even in religion. By studying the stories of the centurion’s faith, the resurrection of the widow’s son, Jesus’ message about John the Baptist, and the anointing by the woman with the alabaster jar, you will be able to face your doubts and insecurities and overcome your anxiety, discontentment, and depression. Wilkerson wants you to understand that the only answer for your spiritual bankruptcy is Jesus and that until you turn to him you will never experience the lasting peace and joy you so desperately crave.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 19, 2015 – Wilkerson, executive pastor of Trinity Church in Miami, Fla., offers a primer on 7 Luke, walking readers slowly through the stories of so-called sandcastle people, who fail to heed Jesus's advice of building strong moral foundations. In four parts, Wilkerson discusses real-life parallels to these biblical characters' struggles. He formulates his study around the centurion, the widow's son, John the Baptist, and the woman who anointed Jesus with the alabaster jar. In each, he mines personal anecdotes to show the lessons of 7 Luke in a modern context. Readers will find helpful examples of how these ancient characters reacted to their own difficult life circumstances, how their faith intersected with the harsh reality of life, and how the lessons they learn are still applicable today. Wilkerson's text is biblically sound, but becomes monotonous at times, as points are repeated. For those looking to delve further into 7 Luke, there are plenty nuggets to be gleaned.
