Book Description

Sept. 4 2012
Take Hold of God’s Vision for Your Life.
A Life that is GREATER.
 
This companion guide to Steven Furtick’s life-changing Greater DVD will help you take the next step—and the ones after that—to follow Jesus’s call to do even greater things than He did (John 14:12). Drawn from the powerful book Greater—and designed to be used with the Greater DVD—this user-friendly resource shows you how to apply four “greater”-releasing principles from the prophet Elisha’s life:
 
·   Burn the Plows: Make a decisive break with your old life.
·   Digging Ditches: Start small and make practical preparations.
·   Upon Further Review: Live with the knowledge that faith is never wasted.
·   Strike the Water: Step out to live the greater life God promises.
 
Each chapter includes a study plan that corresponds with the DVD, discussion questions, space for individual reflection, a Bible study, and suggestions for group leaders.
 
Created to ignite your passion and move you forward, the Greater DVD Participant’s Guide will inspire you to reach for the greater life—and show you how to get there.

DVD not included.

Review

Praise for Greater

“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

“If you ever felt like you were meant for more yet have settled for less in life, then Steven Furtick’s new book, Greater, is for you! 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 bestseller 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. If you read only one book this year, make it Greater.
—Craig Groeschel, senior pastor of LifeChurch.tv, Oklahoma City, OK, and author of Soul Detox and Dare to Drop the Pose

“My friend Steven Furtick has an insatiable passion for the church to discover the fullness of life in Christ. In Sun Stand Still, Steven dared us to pray audacious prayers and believe God for the impossible. Now in Greater, he walks us through what it looks like to live out an audacious life—a life marked by nothing less than greatness God’s way!”
—John Bevere, best-selling author of Relentless and The Bait of Satan

“Steven Furtick boldly pursues God with audacious faith like no one else I know. He is unapologetic about allowing God to accomplish greater things through him. This book will inspire you to do the same. To reach for greater. To believe for greater. To be greater.”
—Stovall Weems, lead pastor of Celebration Church, Jacksonville, FL

“In every generation God empowers a few great leaders to speak his truth with boldness. Steven Furtick is one of those voices in our generation. In his new book Greater, you will learn how to embrace God’s present plan for your greater calling and purpose.”
—Christine Caine, director of Equip and Empower and founder of the A21 Campaign

Greater is about walking in God’s higher purpose for your life. Whether that’s as a teacher, preacher, leader, parent, musician, artist, engineer, or entrepreneur, Steven Furtick will show you how to let go of your fears and embrace your greater purpose in God.”
—Israel Houghton, Grammy Award–winning recording artist and worship leader of Lakewood Church, Houston, TX

“People today are bored, depressed, and confused because they have settled for ‘good enough.’ But ‘good enough’ is keeping us from living the life that God has called us to. In Greater, Steven Furtick embarks on a brilliant journey of transformation that every follower of Christ needs to take. This book delivers!”
—Perry Noble, senior pastor of NewSpring Church, Anderson, SC, and blogger on leadership, vision, and creativity

“Pastor Steven’s powerful yet vulnerable teaching grabbed my heart, equipped my mind, and stirred my soul like no other book I’ve ever read. This is one I will return to again and again. For anyone who has ever dared to dream but doesn’t know how to turn their dreams into reality, Greater is a must-read.”
—Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times best-selling author of Made to Crave and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries

“Some of us wear ourselves out trying to achieve ‘greatness.’ Others of us miss our calling and settle for ‘good enough.’ In Greater, Steven Furtick shows us the surefooted path to the Greater life.”
—Mark Batterson, lead pastor of National Community Church, Washington, DC, and author of Primal and In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day

“Steven Furtick is living exactly what he’s written about in this book—start small, dream big, and see what God will do! Our church has been massively blessed by the example of Pastor Steven, his family, and Elevation Church. Take it from the best. Don’t underestimate what God can do with your small start. Get this book and be encouraged!”
—Dino Rizzo, lead pastor of Healing Place Church, Baton Rouge, LA, and author of Servolution

“Steven Furtick understands spiritual vision like few people I know. If you desire a life beyond your imagination, read this book! Greater will take you to a whole new level and invite you to experience the power of God every day.”
—Jack Graham, senior pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, Dallas, TX, and author of Powering Up

“The distance between desire and doing is often intimidating because we don’t know where to begin. But in Greater, Steven Furtick shows that God’s ‘greater’ for our lives is as far away as our first step of obedience.”
—Ed Young, senior pastor of Fellowship Church, Dallas, TX, and author of Outrageous, Contagious Joy

“Steven Furtick is in my head again with Greater. He’s challenging me to be greater—and the good news is that all I have to do is think big and start small.”
—Tim Sanders, author of Today We Are Rich and CEO of Net Minds 

“My friend Steven Furtick calls us to a faith-filled life of trusting and believing God for greater lives than the ones we are living now. It’s not about us, though. It’s about God’s greater glory in and through our lives. If you are ready for a life-altering experience with Jesus Christ, pick up a copy of Greater.
—James MacDonald, senior pastor of Harvest Bible Chapel, Chicago, IL, and author of Always True and 10 Choices  --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

2.0 out of 5 stars This book is not Greater Nov. 8 2013
By Chris Meirose - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I had read Furtick's "Sun Stand Still" previously, so entered with a bit of expectation for this book as that one was a decent read. This one was not Greater. It seem to wonder constantly, was unfocused, and really never made a clear point. It was as though (presumably) the sermons he wrote originally that later were condensed for this book had no clear goals to begin with, leaving the final product muddy.

There are times in this book where Furtick moves uncomfortably close (for me anyhow) to promoting a prosperity theology - just short of name it claim it kind of thinking. Then in other places it seems like he wants to steal from David Platt and have everyone suffering nearly unecessarily for their faith (less of this than the prosperity though).

There are a few quotable thoughts scattered here and there, but none of them worth mining through the rest of this so that you can find them. While it isn't the worst book I've read, I'd certainly steer clear of this and find yourself something better to grow your faith. When I got more out of reading the endorsements of the book than I did from the book itself, it should tell you something.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Oct. 9 2013
By Gauffroi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to put myself in the "high hopes but disappointed" category. My main problem with this book is, it offers the promise of "igniting God's vision for your life" but the author only devotes a minute percentage of the first chapter (let alone the rest of the book) to getting the "vision." I was actually hoping the entire book would be devoted to discerning God's vision. Without seeing the vision as the first step, one never gets to "burning the plow," "digging the ditches" or the subsequent steps. The message seems to be that God will speak to you. But after reading the first chapter (and the rest of the book) I still have no real idea how to recognize when God might be speaking to me. The examples given do not really help -- the persons described (including the author himself) just say "they knew." But in other parts of the book the author points out that The Adversary is always out there trying to derail you. How did the people in the examples know it was God speaking? How can you tell the difference, assuming The Adversary is charming and persuasive? In other words, you get a strong feeling that you are being told to do something, and it sounds good, but The Adversary is saying "He sure fell for that one." Another problem is, much of the book seems like "Sun Stand Still" told in a different way -- e.g., you should ask God to help you achieve the vision . . . but this is how you should react when the vision doesn't pan out, because sometimes it won't pan out . . . very similar to the progression in Sun Stands Still. So I am not saying the book is worthless, just disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book Jan. 11 2013
By M. Grissett - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
If you feel like God has given you a vision - a dream - to do something that you feel is impossible to do, you must read this book. It is packed with truths from God's Word, and it is an incredible encouragement to start taking small steps toward that dream.
