Publisher's Summary

Are you ready to open your imagination to the possibility that God has a vision for your life that is greater?
We all have honest moments when we're gripped by a desire to feel that what we're doing matters more. That who we are matters more.
And according to one of the most shocking verses in the Bible, Jesus wants the very same thing for every one of us:
"Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father." (John 14:12)
That single promise - "even greater things than these" - should be enough to shatter our acceptance of spiritual mediocrity. Unfortunately, most believers have only tried and given up on vague notions of greatness...then settled into a life that's just good enough.
Good enough = Baseline living that is marked by mediocrity, stuck in spiritual survival mode, and controlled by complacency.
Greatness = Vague, unrealistic aspirations of doing better that don't work in real life and lead to endless frustration.
But there is a third way.
Greater = The life-altering understanding that God is ready to accomplish a greatness in your life that is entirely out of human reach - beyond anything you see in yourself on your best day, but exactly what God has seen in you all along.
In Greater, Pastor Steven Furtick draws on the biblical story of Elisha to empower you to:


Take a God-given dream from idea to reality
Stretch your limited resources and abilities in ways you never thought possible
Replace the images of yourself that keep you feeling stuck in the past
Make a significant impact with your life starting today, rather than making endless plans for tomorrow that you never get around to
If you're tired of being ordinary, it's time to dream bigger. If you're feeling overwhelmed about where to begin, it's time start smaller. It's time to ignite God's Greater vision for your life.

"Writes Steven Furtick, 'Good enough leaves you stuck in stagnation. Grasping for greatness leads to endless frustration. But greater is a third way.' My advice? Don't waste another second to embrace the third way. In Greater, Steven shows you that God's vision for your life is ready to be ignited. Go ahead - strike the match!" (Jentezen Franklin, senior pastor of Free Chapel, Gainesville, GA, and New York Times best-selling author of Fasting)

Its proven biblical insights and practical applications will put you on your path to the greater life." (Kerry Shook, senior pastor of Woodlands Church, Houston, TX, and coauthor of the New York Times best-selling One Month to Live and the national best seller Love at Last Sight)
"Most people crave more out of life and sense there is a greater reason for our existence. Pastor Steven's new book, Greater, is the perfect book to stir your faith, build your spiritual confidence, and inspire you toward the unique calling for your life.
