Blog Tour: Extraordinary by John Bevere

About Extraordinary:

Grace brings believers into relationship with God. But many Christians don’t understand that grace is also the power source for incredible joy, success, and peace in life. In Extraordinary, John Bevere presents a logical, compelling, and deeply inspiring case straight from Scripture for living a life far above “the ordinary.”

About John Bevere:

John Bevere is an internationally popular conference speaker, teacher, and author of bestsellers, including The Bait of Satan, Drawing Near, and Driven by Eternity. His award-winning curriculum and books have been translated in over sixty languages and his weekly television program, The Messenger, is broadcast around the world. John and his wife, Lisa — also a bestselling author and speaker — reside with their family in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

My thoughts:

I have been in solid, Bible-believing churches for close to 25 years and have been taught many of the principles in this book, but I still found myself gleaning things from its pages. I thought when I first picked up this book that I could just sit down and read through it fairly quickly, but that's not what happened. I could only read a few chapters a day, as I found myself getting that feeling when you've stuffed yourself at the buffet - like I had to back away from the table and let my mind and spirit digest what was being said.

As I read through the pages of Extraordinary, I could feel the passion that John Bevere has for this message. This book carries a message of God's grace, and how it can empower you do great things for the Kingdom of God. We all need to get a grasp of what God has done for us and can do through us, so we don't have to live a 'ho-hum' Christian life but can fulfill the EXTRAORDINARY life that God has called us to. This is an uplifting, encouraging book that I think every Christian needs to read, and it also brings the Salvation message, so it would be a good book to share with an unsaved family member or friend as well.
