This work has been characterized by some bloggers as a book that promotes "Name It/Claim It" doctrine. I did not find anything to support such allegations. In fact Furtick goes to great lengths to challenge readers to pray audacious prayers, not for their own benefit, but to glorify God. Some reviews were so far off base I wonder if they read any of the book at all. Very little of the book will make sense to someone who does not believe the Bible.
This book challenged me. It helped me remember the scary-big ideas God has placed in me. It reminds me those ideas are possible in Christ.
The author understands that we are all called to ministry and there is no distinction between full-time and whatever else we might be. He reminds each of us that we are called to be God's change agent and that we have what we need,
This book is personal and narrated by the author. His passion comes through. His emotion is energizing. I recommend this if you want your faith to change your life.
Steven Furtick follows in the great tradition of all the gifted, young vision-casting Christian leaders who have gone before him. He discovers ancient passages in the Bible that inspire him to greatness - and knows how to infectiously pass on his sense of wonder and excitement to others. Those who've never encountered these Bible passages will be exhilarated. Those who delighted with them years ago will find themselves reinvigorated and challenged to embrace - and by faith - act on them once again.
I love the honesty Stephen Furtick has when he talks about anything and it still is true with his book.
Furtick talks about himself, his family, and many other people with different circumstances within this book. I can't choose a favorite but I like that his accountant guy is named Chunks. Then there is a man he mentions (I forgot his nickname) that was brought to Christ, then sent to jail. Furtick was worried about him and the man seemed happy that he could go to jail for the time he had to pay for crimes he committed so he could start a revival of Christ in the jailhouse.
Probably when Stephen talks about him in college and inviting everyone on his floor to come and eat his food, how quickly he ran out of food and how he had to keep up with this plan. His determination is fun and funny.
Yes, I listened to it in two parts so I practically did listen to it in one sitting.
Stephen Furtick has a way of telling a story that puts you in his shoes so you experience it with him. He doesn't stand in front of you preaching at you or behind you, he's with you.
I would rank this as my #1 listen
He is passionate about the material
