Why are we drawn to stories of heroic triumph over seemingly impossible circumstances? In our fascination with adventure movies, superheroes, and tales of incredible human feats, do we reveal an inherent desire for something larger and greater in life? Maybe what we think is a need to escape or be entertained is actually a God inspired longing...for the extraordinary.
Best-selling author John Bevere reveals how all of us were "meant for more," extraordinarily created and intended for a life that is anything but ordinary. Here is the roadmap for your journey of transformation. You are marked for a life that far surpasses the usual definitions of success or fulfillment.
Isn't it time to pursue your extraordinary life?

"In Extraordinary, John Bevere does a wonderful job of showing what God created us for and how that applies to all areas of our lives. As a professional athlete, I am constantly dealing with the balance of being extraordinary for God, as well as in my career. This book has shown me that there is no separation between our spiritual lives and our everyday lives. God has called us to live extraordinarily, every minute of every day. This book is a must read for those who are looking to live fully immersed in the greatness of Jesus!" (Kurt Warner, NFL quarterback and two-time league MVP)
"John Bevere is one of the most passionate people I know, and I believe he has truly grasped the meaning of John 10:10: 'I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.' In Extraordinary he digs into the Word to show what it looks like to please God and use the talents He has given us. John pushes believers to the edge to get them to launch out into the deep. He lives life to the fullest and, through these pages, will inspire you to experience the joy of serving Christ with passion." (James Robison, LIFE Outreach International)
"John Bevere shows from the Word that everyone who wants it can live a life with impact. This book hits hard with truth. No more boring, watered-down, weak spiritual life for the body of Christ. Let's do it! We can all release God's power and do the extraordinary!" (Shaun Alexander, former NFL MVP)
This is some really foundation stuff when it comes to being effective in your ministry. I very much liked how often he quotes scripture, though it troubles me a bit how much he seems to lean on The Message "translation"... seems likely that he makes that choice simply because of how well it fits literarily with his writing style, which is very conversational and makes profound topics very easy to comprehend.
My main gripe would be the number of times that the audiobook leaves out chapter/verse references when quoting scripture (guessing the text copy has footnotes?)... he includes that info a lot, but he also quotes scripture a lot, so the missing references do add up.
Overall, HIGHLY recommended to any believer. Even if you don't agree with everything, this will expand your spiritual journey - and it caused me to spend more time in the word, which is always a good thing!
Very applicable knowledge and information
The biblical study makes it most interesting
The African tribe example and the gifts was my favorite

And equipped you on how to walk it out, and Live the Extraordinary Life you were destined too! Dont miss your opportunity! God has Called YOU to Greatness!
