Book Review – Extraordinary

One of my favorite authors of all time, John Bevere has released another masterpiece.  Though there seems to be an influx of books recently released on the subject of finding your purpose, Extraordinary is set apart.  Bevere reveals that our purpose to live extraordinary lives was not lost in the Garden of Eden because of Adam’s sin.  The author reminds us that Jesus came to reverse the curse. What was lost could now be restored.  Extraordinary is a book that focuses on God’s grace to help us live extraordinary lives.  Lives of power, holiness and faith.  Bevere challenges the believer to cultivate what God has planted inside of us.  The way this book is written built excitement or should I say anticipation for what God wants to do through us.  This is a great read!

Summary:

There’s a question that troubles many believers: “Why am I not experiencing more joy, more hope, more satisfaction, more intimacy, more power, more everything in my Christian life–didn’t Jesus promise that?”

He did promise an abundant life, but too many people are trapped by the curse of “the ordinary.” They have accepted the wrong idea that following God means losing individuality, creativity, and a passion for achieving lofty goals.

Nothing could be further from the truth!  John Bevere builds a convincing case, straight from Scripture, for a way of living marked by extraordinary experiences and accomplishments—the life God always intended for his children.

Here is a guide to understanding God’s incredible plans, and how to enjoy a life where he adds the “extra” to “ordinary.”
