Publisher's Description

Stop hitting the spiritual snooze button.

Would you describe your walk with God as fresh and exciting?  Would you describe your spiritual life as vibrant and passionate?  If not, would you like these attributes to be the norm in your everyday relationship with God?
 
Are you ready to experience an awakening?
 
Awakening helps you stir up your slumbering soul.  You’ll discover how to break out of your season of dryness or get off to a great start either in the New Year or the next season in life. Take your faith-walk from a "going through the motions" or "have to" mindset to the stimulating, fresh "want to" experience of enjoying God’s presence—24/7. 
 
Weems encourages you to surrender fully, to discover the right kind of fuel for the journey, and to learn a new way to pray and fast. This lifestyle is not based on rules or religion, but on a deep, satisfying, motivating relationship with God.
 
Included in Awakening is a 21-Day Plan that will guide you through the principles that ensure a lasting, fresh relationship with God—even in a world where everything quickly becomes stale. 
 
"It’s time to wake up and put an end to spiritual sluggishness! I promise this year will be the best of your life if it is your best year spiritually." – Stovall Weems

Your awakening is not far off! This book will give you the keys to your breakthrough.” — Jentezen Franklin, senior pastor of Free Chapel and New York Times best-selling author of Fasting: Opening the Door to a Deeper, More Intimate, More Powerful Relationship with God

“There is an awakening simmering in this generation. It’s an awakening of power, integrity, and a wholehearted pursuit of Jesus. Nobody embodies these characteristics more than my friend Stovall Weems. If you want your soul to be ignited with the passion it was created to possess, you need to read this book.” — Steven Furtick, lead pastor of Elevation Church and author of Sun Stand Still

“In order to effectively lead others as a church leader, one of the most important things you will ever do is learn to lead yourself well. In Awakening, Stovall Weems shares some valuable principles to help ensure that your spiritual leadership remains healthy, vibrant, and full of the life and fire of God. The message of Awakening is one that is vital for every church leader, and I’m so glad Stovall is sharing these principles with the body of Christ. Awakening will not only encourage you today, but it will also prepare you for tomorrow.” — John C. Maxwell, author, speaker, and founder of EQUIP Leadership Inc.

“Passion. Zeal. Authenticity. These are the characteristics that should describe the life of one who loves God. I want them to describe mine, and if this book is in your hands, then you most likely want the same. There is no one better suited for giving us insight into how to obtain all three than Stovall Weems. His enthusiasm for spiritual things is genuine and contagious. Choosing to read these pages will dramatically transform your walk with the Lord. So wipe your tired spiritual eyes and prepare for your awakening.” — Priscilla Shirer, author and Bible teacher

“This world will never be changed by passive people. All the greatest accomplishments of humanity have come about through passionate people who weren’t afraid of what others thought or spoke of them. Awakening, my friend Stovall Weems’s book, is a wake-up call to every Christian to get off the sidelines, discover the passion inside of them, and live the extraordinary life God calls them to live.” — John Bevere, author of Extraordinary: The Life You’re Meant to Live, speaker, and cofounder of Messenger International

“We know deep down in our hearts that we really are meant to live in an exciting, passionate, ongoing, head-over-heels relationship with Jesus, but many of us just don’t know how to maintain it.

We all need this book, and we need it now.” — Rick Bezet, lead pastor of New Life Church, Central Arkansas

“In His own words, Jesus said that He came to earth so that we could experience an abundant life. In other words, the personal and intimate relationship we can have with God should usher in nothing short of extraordinary experiences every single day. Yet far too often, Christians find their relationship with God lacking something. In the pages of Awakening, my close friend Stovall Weems unpacks the power and potential of a revitalized and reenergized relationship with God. And he shows us exactly what it takes for us to remain alert and expectant in our faith so that we will encounter the extraordinary every day!” — Ed Young, pastor of Fellowship Church and author of Outrageous, Contagious Joy

“In Awakening, Stovall Weems unpacks the timeless truth that there is power in praying and fasting. Your relationship with God will receive a jolt like you’ve never experienced before with the practical teaching that is revealed throughout this book. As you read, my prayer is that you’ll find yourself more excited than ever before about the present and future of your life.” — Dino Rizzo, lead pastor of Healing Place Church

“Stovall Weems is a modern-day prophet. In this groundbreaking book he helps to awaken us to the fact that God wants us to live a radical, passionate Christianity. Jesus did not come to give us a religious obligation but abundant life. I was left with a renewed love and passion for Jesus and a clearer understanding of the privilege and purpose of prayer and fasting. This man lives this message, and read it at your own risk. You will never be the same.” — Christine Caine, director of Equip and Empower Ministries and founder of The A21 Campaign

“One of the things I love most is seeing people have a ‘get it’ moment that changes their life. This book will do that for you. I love the fact that it is both inspirational and informational. Stovall’s passion has impacted my life, and through this book, it will impact your life too. Read it and experience an awakening. As Stovall puts it, ‘After an awakening, life is never the same.’” — John Siebeling, lead pastor of The Life Church, Memphis, Tennessee

“At a time when the moral fabric of our generation is eroding and people’s hearts are further and further away from God, Stovall Weems calls us back to God with all of our hearts. In this powerful and timely book, you’ll be both inspired and informed about the life-transforming power of prayer and fasting. This is a must-read at any stage in your walk with God.” — Chris Hodges, senior pastor of Church of the Highlands, Birmingham, Alabama

    I selected this book to review because I am interested in personal revival. Weems is the pastor of a large and growing church which encourages a 21 day Awakening--prayer and fasting season every January. Many have benefited from the concentrated time of surrendering to God, rediscovering passion for God, experiencing God’s goodness, and making room in their lives for God to fill.
    This book is all about having Christ first place in our lives, and doing that through commitment to reading and obeying the Bible, fervently praying, and fasting. Fasting is explained; there are many ways to fast. Activities can also be fasted, besides food.
    Most people are familiar with a reboot or reset action for their electronics, but never think of the need for reboot or reset in spiritual terms. This book will enlighten people to that need.
    I cannot say that I agreed with every idea or belief mentioned in this book, (I am not a Charismatic), but I believe there is much good that can be absorbed. We all need to focus on God and make space in our lives for Him to be our number one priority.
    This book contains The Awakening 21-Day Plan and a Small Group Study Guide.
    I definitely recommend personal revival and this book could be used to start a person on that journey.

    "In a world filled with Twitter, Facebook, and so much noise and clutter, we can easily get distracted and "gunked up" spiritually---bogged down in our relationship with God. But according to Stovall Weems, there's a powerful, new school way to hit the reset button and find the thriving life God promises."

    Has your walk with God slowed down, maybe even gotten a little bit stale? If so, this is a book you should definitely read. In His own words, Jesus has said that he came to earth so that we could experience an abundant life. Awakening will show you how to get off the sidelines. You should get the passion, zeal, and authenticity that describes the person who loves God! You will get a 21-Day Plan to help give you the principles that ensure a lasting, vital relationship with God. That plan includes prayer, personal devotions, and fasting. Expect great things to happen!

    When I got this book I didn't really know what it was going to be about. I'm not too good at reading the backs of books. ;) So when I got it, I began reading it instantly and realized it was on fasting. At first I was little sad, then I started remembering how important fasting is. I read the whole book and have decided to participate in the 21 days of fasting. I would encourage you to buy this book. It's not like the usual, "self help" Christian books, this one is actually VERY helpful and extrememly easy to read. I hope you get this book and it blesses you as much as it did me. God bless!

    Although I didn't expect the book to be be primarily about fasting, and I'm still not sure if I will begin fasting as regularly as the author suggests, this is still a great book. And he suggests many different types of fasting. There should be some acceptable method for everybody.

    The author certainly reminds us that all Christians should be experiencing a dynamic personal relationship with Christ. There just is no excuse for going through the motions and allowing our faith to become ho-hum. Each of us needs to be intentional about truly seeking God and connecting with Him frequently.

    The author's passion is contagious, and his challenge that we should all be regularly hearing from God is inspiring. I found myself longing for a more active faith and realizing that I need to create more space in my life, my time, and my heart for God to fill.

    Note: Although I feel all Christians would benefit from the main premise and much of the inspiration of the book, there is a noted charismatic element to the content. All in all -- a worthwhile read.

    From the very beginning this book grabbed my attention. If you have been a Christian very long you will quickly identify with this book. Thr author challenges us to awake from the routine, stale walk with Christ to a vibrant relationship.

    The book is divided into two parts: Part One shows you how to regain the 'first love' you had when first coming to Christ. I enjoyed his analogy how we can "gunk up" our lives with all our activity, noise, and clutter and need to push the spiritual 'reset' button.

    Part Two gives you The 21-Day Plan. This section gives you the different types of fasts, how to get started, and many other additional helps. I think this 3 week plan will be helpful to all Christians.

    I highly recommend this book. It is easy to read and understand. It will take you to a rewarding relationship with God.

    This was given to me free for the purpose of this review by Waterbrook/Multnomah Press throug their blogging for books program.
