Publisher's Summary

Satisfy your intrinsic desire to rise above the norm.

Isn’t it true that we long to see the extraordinary, experience the extraordinary, do the extraordinary? Yet, so often we settle for mediocrity when greatness is within our grasp.

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 road map 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?

Critic Reviews

"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)

Simply awesome book!!

Would you listen to Extraordinary again? Why?

I will definately ready Extraordinary again. The insights revealed in this book are life changing!!

Have you listened to any of John Bevere’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

All of Beveres books will reveal different parts of the Scriptures in ways that bring life and change in your walk with God!! I find John's books to be full of life changing principles of living successfully now in light of eternity. All of his books have changed my life for the better in more ways then I could even recount.

So good- had to relisten multiple times!!!

John Bevere touches on so many deep topics. I had to to listen multiple times to allow God's truths to soak in my heart.

I plan to listen again and take notes and do a deeper study along with Bro. Bevere's teaching.

There is one area that I disagree. According to his reading of 1 Cor. 13. When Paul states, 'though I speak with tongues of men and of angels", this truth is replaced by John with ' expired preaching' .

I believe, according to God's word that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are for today and do not expire. For I have tasted of this gift and know it is real!!!

I look forward to acquiring the class curriculum on DVD.

God bless your entire staff that work together to bring forth God's truth in a simplistic, yet powerful way.

divinely inspired words to nourish the soul

It is rare to find authors who stand firmly on the words of God. John clearly does this through his use of scripture. He is also skilled at illustrating biblical concepts. I have read some of these scriptures over and over again, but it took John's obedience to God's plan for them to be revealed to me.

John and team, I thank you for this work!

An inspiring read!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It made me realise how I had settled for far less than not only what the Lord has for me, but the grace he wants to give me so I can achieve it
