Extraordinary: The life you were meant to live
The author hooked me on page 3. Why? Because John Bevere opened up my idea of being made in the image of God. I actually responded to what I was reading as if I were talking to John.
I said, "So you mean that since God is extraordinary and He made me in His image that I can't be anything but extraordinary?" I finished that page and had my answer. "Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature..."
WOW! If I am a reflection of God then it's like He's looking in a mirror. What stares back at Him? His own reflection. This book is one that helps us to understand what it means to be God's reflection.
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.”
