Lift Your Vision High


Vision is a preferred future. A destination. Vision always stands in contrast to the world as it is. Visioneering, according to bestselling author Andy Stanley, is “a clear mental picture of what could be, fueled by the conviction that it should be.” With warm, down-to-earth practicality, Andy Stanley explores the ordinary life of Nehemiah and his God-given vision for accomplishing the extraordinary. He shows how the life of this great ancient visionary, determined to rebuild the ruined walls of Jerusalem, reveals principles that can prepare us to find and follow God’s multifaceted vision for our own lives. Now this bestseller is again available in an attractive, affordable paperback!

Everybody ends up somewhere in life.

You can end up somewhere on purpose!

Visioneering is the engineering of a vision. It’s the process one follows to develop and maintain vision. “Vision,” writes Andy Stanley , “is a clear mental picture of what could be, fueled by the conviction that it should be.”

In the bestselling Visioneering, Stanley builds a compelling case for the necessity of a clear, God-ordained vision for each of the roles of your life. Whether you’re a parent with a vision for your children or a CEO pursuing a corporate vision, Visioneering is the perfect tool to help you develop and maintain God’s unique purpose for your life.

“Visioneering is the best book on vision I’ve seen. It will put you on track to discovering God’s purpose for your life. In my course “The Vision of the Leader,” I quote from Andy’s book more than any other. Visioneering should be on the bookshelf of every pastor, business leader, and parent in America . I heartily endorse it!”

—Dr. Bruce Wilkinson ,

Chairman, Dream for Africa

Story Behind the Book

Andy Stanley, the pastor of more than 15,000, knows a lot of people, and is well aware of the overwhelming and mutual desire nearly every Christian holds to find and fulfill God’s purpose for their lives. This book was written to stir these hearts and move people forward by providing tangible steps to getting from Point A to Point B. “As Christians,” states Stanley, “we do not have a right to take our talents, abilities, experiences, opportunities, and education and run off in any direction we please.” This book was written to provide a specific plan for going in the right direction. It truly is “God’s blueprint for developing and maintaining personal vision.”

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Books You'll Read! Feb. 22 2004
Format:Paperback
"Vision gives significance to the otherwise meaningless details of our lives," the author tells us. He goes on to talk about how God is interested in the visions of each area of our lives. Using Nehemiah's rebuilding of the wall in the Old Testament as an illustration, he describes how God works behind the scenes in the lives of those who pursue His vision. This book is highly reflective, by that I mean he has questions at the end of the chapters that help you to plug into the points being made.
What he's ultimately discussing is the life well-lived. In seeking God's vision for one's life, faith and total dependence on God are essential. In living such a life, one is in pursuit of God, the Giver of the dream. Glorifying God becomes more important than accomplishing tasks. Ultimately fulfillment comes from connecting with the Creator.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW - What a great book March 6 2004
Format:Paperback
Wow, this was absolutley the best book on vision I have ever read. I don't mean to say I have read a lot of books on vision but this book is very clear. It's message is concise, backed by biblical scripture. It supports itself with the ground work of scripture and gives clear examples of vision. If you are a leader or head of an organization this book will clearly help you with your vision for your company, business, and most importantly your marriage and relationships. At the end of every chapter (there are 18) there is a "project". This "project" asks you questions about your visions. Each project builds upon itself and is a great tool to help put your vision in action. I have read the book twice. The first time I read it in 3 days. I could not put it down. The second time I read it, I just really started to work and apply the vision principals. I keep the book next to me all the time because I also like to quote from it. BOTTOM LINE - Read this book. It will certainly add value to you and your relationships- personal and business.

Format:Hardcover
It has been a while since I have read a very practical book on building your vision and fulfilling the actions to make that vision come alive. Too often, books on visions and mission statements are more theory books with little practical value. Written with excellent references from the Bible of great leaders that needed a lot of help in getting their own life's direction onto God's fast track, you will find this book to easily relate to today's business needs.
I found Andy Stanley's writing to be fun, concise and practical, with each chapter well appointed with bolded key points, thought provoking questions or excercises for personal application.
I have already recommended this book to both business collegues and christian friends, both church leaders and laymen. Whether you are wanting more out of your business career, your church committee position, to better define your bible study group's future direction, or to supercharge your life back on to God's well designed plan for your life, this is a great place to inject some smart advice.
This book will easily be a book that I will reference again and again in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dare to Dream Feb. 7 2002
Format:Paperback
In "Visioneering," Andy Stanley provides the motivation, the plan, and the encouragement for developing and fulfilling your God-given dreams. Nehemiah's vision for rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem is used as a classic example of the things God wants to accomplish in the lives of everyday Godly dreamers. The subject of vision is masterfully defined while practical
steps for vision formulation and achievement are carefully explained and clearly illustrated. The book makes for enjoyable, inspiring, and empowering reading. Visionaries waiting for the fulfillment of their dreams can draw good counsel and encouragement from this book. I highly recommend "Visioneering" to anyone who dares to dream. I would also encourage the serious Christian visionary to read "The Power of Vision" by George Barna. The two works bring balance, clarity, and fullness to each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nehemiah! Feb. 6 2003
Format:Paperback
If this book won't light your fire, your wood's wet!
Andy hits it out of the park with this quintessential work on vision. Vision is a term which has suffered from over-use and has become almost cliche in the business world over the last few years. Everyone "has a vision." Andy Stanley reminds us that vision was God's idea long before the success gurus discovered it. He takes us back to the ancient visionary and workhorse Nehemiah, and gives a VERY practical look at the steps God took him through as he rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem.
Nehemiah faced an impossible task, made possible by God of the Possible, working through His servant.
Books of this genre have been so overly produced and hyped, it is sometimes difficult time to separate the wheat from the chaff. Andy Stanley's work will stand the test of time. I believe it may be a classic in its field.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Compass for Your Personal Mission in Life June 16 2000
Format:Hardcover
Andy, through his unique story-telling style of writing, has provided a literary compass to either confirm or deconstruct "that idea that you have" for the "really big thing" that has been consuming your thoughts. For those on the other end of the spectrum, those that are clueless about what they are really supposed to doing with their lives, he offers insight as to how to begin to address this issue. Thought-provoking, yet funny, readers will finish the book not only with a greater appreciation of Nehemiah's management challenge, but a practical roadmap of how to address the bigger issues in their own lives.
