In this latest by John Bevere we are challenged to life life the way God intended us to. I like this book because it takes everyday circumstances and shows us the little things in them that God wants us to learn. This book encourages the reader to reach for more, not to just sit back and let life pass you by.

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.”

You can purchase this book directly from Random House.

This books sounds very good and very real! I like that. I like to be real and teach others to be real too. I like where it is written that it adds the extra---ordinary. One of the notes in my bible was to a teen that was changing for the lord,I told her she went from ordinary to extraordinary! How God can move in ones life is amazing! Things that have happened in my life, I never thought I would be the woman I am today. I love being my husbands wife, the pastors wife, the mother of four, the daughter of the King of Kings, but I love being me too! I want others to enjoy the joys in life and pray that God will continue to work in them to become lovers of Jesus too!
