"This is a remarkable book by a remarkable man. You will love his transparency and passion!" (Rick Warren, founder and pastor of Saddleback Church, author of best-seller The Purpose Driven Life)
This is an honest and open account of a journey that is blessed by God through trust and faith in His Creative love.
The practical implications of human weakness and the difficulties we face everyday only serve to strengthen us when we trust God and have faith and hope in Jesus. The events portrayed in this book are testimony to Gods heart of love for us all.
The start and end of each chapter is accompanied by lyrics and music that brings a deeper spiritual relevance to the content of the book. Obviously this experience can only be brought by an audible book.
I was moved by hearing how times of difficulty and struggle had given birth to beautiful songs of praise and worship. The chapters draw you into a sense of thankfulness and awe.
Getting ready to listen all over again!
As always, Brian Houston delivers a very easy to listen to message. His surprisingly honest account of his personal disappointment with family is much needed where some may want to gloss over for the sake of a more positive account. I found this refreshing, and always respected the way he dealt decisively with the issue he talks about.
I love audiobooks and will listen to a book whilst gardening or doing things around the house.
Really enjoyed this book. It is about church leadership and tells the story about the challenges and triumphs that one of the most successful international churches has had over the years.
Brian Houston is very honest and very brave to share some of things he says. At times this took my breath away and made the book come to life as there were some very real struggles.
This is a book for anyone, but especially for people with a Christian faith who may be involved in their local church. There were some lovely snippets of music from Hillsongs Church which I loved.
Well done Brian!!
"seriously get a professional to do the narration."
it was a strugle to finish this book...partly because of the voice... which is unsuited for narration, but also because of the lack of structure and cohesion. being part of hillsong i felt like i had to finish it, but it was a struggle. time is better spent on other books
