Be encouraged to follow God's leading...and be inspired to step out in faith. How does God change your life? It begins in your mind. If you are unable to change your thoughts and see the world from a different viewpoint, there can be no transformation by the renewing of your mind (Rom. 12:2). While thinking differently is difficult, the Bible makes it clear that it is a necessary part of spiritual growth. In This Changes Everything, C. Peter Wagner draws upon the thought transforming shifts that have taken place in his life and explains how God has used them to move him into new areas of ministry. Readers will learn how to distinguish moral imperatives from personal preferences on the paradigm spectrum, be encouraged to follow God’s leading in shifting their mindsets, and be inspired to step out in faith to the new places where God will lead them.
C. PETER WAGNER, PhD, holds graduate degrees in theology, missiology and religion from Fuller Theological Seminary, Princeton Theological Seminary and the University of Southern California. He served as a field missionary in Bolivia for 16 years, and he taught on the faculty of the School of Intercultural Studies at Fuller Seminary for 30 years. The author of 70 books, Wagner ministers extensively nationally and internationally from his home base in Colorado Springs.
This Changes Everything fearlessly tackles theologically profound and extremely important biblical subjects in a clear, lucid and practical way. C. Peter Wagner brilliantly distills the paradigm shifts that have transformed his life and a theology that has been the foundation for more than 50 years of fruitful ministry around the world. This is a must-read for those who want to hear what the Holy Spirit is saying to His church today! - Dr. Ché Ahn, President and Founder, Harvest International Ministry, Senior Pastor, HRock Church, Pasadena, California
My approach to my personal relationship with God and to ministry is that of simple, childlike faith. However, Dr. Wagner’s scholarly and strategically written book This Changes Everything has both provoked and invited me to deeply examine mindsets that might have restricted my experience in God. When I started reading it, I could not put it down. I am convinced you won’t either . . . and don’t be surprised if you encounter some profound paradigm shifts. - Patricia King, Founder of XPministries and XPmedia
Peter Wagner has done it againbut this time bigger, better and deeper! In this book, he provides us with a detailed yet intimate roadmap that reveals how he expanded from one theological paradigm to the next. He shows how he bridged what to many would be irreconcilable positions, and in so doing provided a way for the Church to get closer to displaying the fullness of Christ in the heavenly places without being tossed by every wind of doctrine. A true apostolic work! - Ed Silvoso, Author and Founder of International Transformation Network.
This Changes Everything will cause you to take a step back and really think about what you believe. At times challenging to classic doctrinal thinking, it will cause you to dive into the Scriptures, wrestle with deep truths, and empower you to know why you believe what you believe. Whether you agree with everything written in these pages or not, it will compel you forward in your pursuit of truth, revelation and understanding into some of the most crucial paradigms of thought facing the church today. C. Peter Wagner magnificently communicates these paradigms in a down to earth and understandable way. - Matt Sorger, Prophetic and Practical-life Minister, Head of Matt Sorger Ministries, Author and TV host of Power for Life
