Myles Munroe – Finding Answers to Why Good People Die Tragic and Early Deaths
I, like most dwellers of our planet woke up to this cruel and shocking news that Dr. Myles Munroe and his beloved wife Ruth have left this earth in a tragic plane crash. Dr. Myles Munroe and his wife impacted not just my life and ministry but that of so many people around the world. He was not just a pastor, teacher and minister of the gospel. But he was first of all a man, a real and complete person and a genuine human being. This book therefore is written to attest to the level of impact he made on me, the body of Christ and to answer critical questions that arose because of his death.
The need to write this book is paramount because first of all it is the first year anniversary of Dr. Myles Munroe’s death and I feel being a covenant friend it is timely to do so. Secondly, after the video of a similar title was released on social media many who didn’t have access to the internet could not download the video but preferred to have the message in text form. What was the message? From the comments I received on the social media pages it was so obvious that many Christians do not seem to see the biblical submissions on Dr. Myles Munroe’s death. It was therefore important that I deal with the fundamental principles that were not in the video in this book and also I felt compelled because of our covenant relationship to answer for a brother where he can no longer speak for himself.
…. So why die such a tragic death?
“The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.” (Isaiah 57:1)
This chapter dealt comprehensively with the questions posed by many Christians since the tragic death of Dr. Myles Munroe, his wife Ruth and his other associates who were with him in the plane. The author explain why Christians should not be overly concerned about how God’s saints come to their end in life but how well they lived for God. He challenged the body of Christ to shed away all religious dogma’s that has created such mind set and have prevented them from picturing death from God’s perspective.
When the Righteous is taken away from the Evil to come
In this chapter the author explained why the passing away of God’s saints is freedom from death. That means his or her spirit man is liberated from the prison of his or her body. Drawing from scriptures the author shows why the death of every saint is so precious in God’s sight because just like a father longs to be with his or her child, God also desires to be reunited with his children.
When Death is gain
Some of the questions posed by so many in the body of Christ since the passing away of Dr. Myles Munroe has been why he died when he was in his prime? This chapter dealt with this question. The author explains why our natural age should not be the basis by which we measure how well or how long Christians lived on the earth. Drawing from the captivating stories of both famous and not too famous Christians who died in young age the author sought to inspire hope and faith in the heart of readers that God have a perfect plan for His children even in death. The author also explained that through the death, burial and resurrection of Christ death was defeated and because of this Christians should not fear death nor its threat. The author further challenged the body of Christ that they should view death as gain and not loss as most would normally view it.
Early death often leads to legendary status
In this chapter the author explored the lives of great and very famous individuals such as Alexander the great, Napoleon Bonaparte, John F Kennedy, Bob Marley, Princess Diana, Martin Luther King Jnr etc. who all died in their prime but attained legendary status. The author challenged readers that it is not how long one lives that determines their impact but how well they live.
Dr. Myles Munroe constantly challenged God’s people to discover their gifts, develop them and serve them to God’s kingdom and the world at large. He was known to encourage believers to not just live but die empty using their gifts to better humanity. He did not only teach about it but also modelled what he taught. Just like he would say, “the greatest tragedy in life is not death but a life without a purpose.”
What is your focus-To live or to die?
“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.”
The author explains in this chapter why it is important Christians should live with eternity in view, realize that that they are sojourners in this world and should therefore not hang on to this world.

How he enriched the world and the body of Christ
The teachings of Dr. Myles Munroe sometimes court controversies because his messages were misunderstood by some people within the body of Christ. This was particularly not any fault of his as his messages were not drawn from the confining box of traditional religious dogmas so many were used to. But it cannot be denied that they elucidated with so much refreshing revelations that helped nourish and enrich not just the body of Christ but the world. His messages were kingdom based teachings, messages focusing on purpose, leadership, hope to the third world nations and celebration of family values. If you seek to understand some of the meanings of Dr. Myles Munroe’s teachings, this chapter did justice to just that.
