Book "Sun Stand Still" by Steven Furtick

About the Book: If you're not DARING TO BELIEVE GOD for the impossible, you may be SLEEPING THROUGH some of the BEST PARTS of your Christian Life.
"This book is not a Snuggie. The words on these pages will not go down like Ambien. I’m not writing to calm or coddle you. With God’s help, I intend to incite a riot in your mind. Trip your breakers and turn out the lights in your favorite hiding places of insecurity and fear. Then flip the switch back on so that God’s truth can illuminate the divine destiny that may have been lying dormant inside you for years.
In short, I’m out to activate your audacious faith. To inspire you to ask God for the impossible. And in the process, to reconnect you with your God-sized purpose and potential." - Steven Furtick, from Sun Stand Still.

About the Author: Steven Furtick is the founder and lead pastor of Elevation Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, named by Outreach magazine as one of the top 10 fastest growing churches in the nation. In four years, Elevation has grown to more than 6,000 people in regular attendance in three locations. Steven holds a degree in communication from North Greenville University, and a Master of Divinity degree from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Holly, have two young sons—Elijah and Graham—and make their home in the Charlotte area.

My Review: This is the type of book that you need to read if you are stagnated in a mud. If you need to shake your faith, renew it or start from scratch, pastor Steven Furtick will give you support on audacious faith. Pastor Steven Furtick is the lead pastor and founder of the Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC. By the way he writes this book, you can clearly see how passionate he is about this subject of audacious faith. He is always trying to encourage us to ask God for the impossible. First challenge is to find your own purpose in life, and from there you can set your mission and trust on God to do what you cannot do by yourself. Some other challenge aspects posted in this book are truly difficult to achieve, like the unconditional obedience, and the necessity to challenge the comfort and safe prayer and go for the audacious prayer.
Asking God for the impossible is something that sometimes we do, but not with our full faith on it. If we are in the desert and ask God for rain, if you do it with audacious faith we would better be with our umbrella. Usually that is the problem. We ask God for the impossible, but we do not truly believe that He will hear us. This book is a booster on our confidence that God is there, He is listening our prayers and if it is according to His plans, He will provide our requests.
This book was written by Steven Furtick and it was published in 2010 by Multnomah Books and they were kind enough to provide me a copy for reviewing through their Blogging for Books Program. Thanks, Mr. Steven Furtick, for such an inspirational book!
