A LIFE BEYOND AMAZING by DR. DAVID JEREMIAH
Led by Pastors Jeff and Ann Hoy. Why is there such a gap between how Christ wants us to live and how we are living? In A Life Beyond Amazing, Dr. David Jeremiah uncovers God’s strategy for change and challenges you to make nine important decisions that will transform your heart, your life, and your world. This life-changing book explores the nine qualities of character that carry us forward. Three of these have to do with our relationship with ourselves, three deal with interactions with other people, and three focus on our relationship with God. A Life Beyond Amazing: 1) Provides much needed wisdom in a divisive world of low tolerance; 2)Emphasizes the danger of concentrating more on what you DO rather than who you ARE; 3) Sounds a wake-up call to believers everywhere on how they are responding to culture; and 4) Offers a renewed sense of purpose to Christian believers. With Dr. Jeremiah’s sound Biblical teaching, inspiring stories, and practical suggestions, you’ll discover how you can live a life beyond amazing.
