Bishop Brian Tamaki: More Than Meets the Eye

Front Cover
Tamaki Publications, Destiny Churches New Zealand, 2006 - Evangelists - 416 pages
Bishop Brian Raymond Tamaki leads one of the fastest growing church movements in New Zealand. As the founder and senior minister of Destiny Church, Tamaki's message has challenged the traditional parameters of Christian influence, using the Gospel to break new ground in social, religious and political spheres. Written on the twenty-seventh anniversary of Tamaki and his wife Hannah's conversion to Christianity, Bishop Brian Tamaki - More than meets the eye offers the reader a unique opportunity to go beneath the surface and read about Tamaki in his own words. A descendant of the Ngati Ngawaero and Ngati Maniapoto tribes, both part of the Tainui confederation, Brian Tamaki grew up in Te Awamutu. He speaks directly to the reader, describing his journey up to now, from his rural upbringing to his adolescence in Tokoroa where he was a forestry worker by day and rock musician by night. He also describes the development of his relationship with his wife Hannah, raising a family, and his conversion to Christianity. Tamaki provides a context to his well-known beliefs on family values (including same-sex marriages and the role of the father), and a background to the inspiration behind the hugely publicised 'Enough is Enough' march on Parliament Grounds in 2004; the formation of the Destiny New Zealand political party; Destiny Television; and the development of his ministry. Tamaki's unwavering conviction is that there is one God, and the church and the advance of the kingdom of God is the only hope for society.
