Publisher's Description

"It hasn't been extraordinary people who have changed the world; rather, it's been people who have been willing to act and live on faith," observes pastor and author Susan Smith. Drawing on biblical, historical, and contemporary stories of what she calls "crazy faith," this inspirational volume challenges readers to dare to step out and make a difference in the world. Faith is "vision fueled by action," Smith declares. Follow in the footsteps of those who have earned a place in the Hall of Faith, including Moses, Harriet Tubman, David, Nelson Mandela, Sarah and Abraham, Mother Teresa, Noah, and Mary McLeod Bethune.

Publisher's Weekly

Smith, a pastor and former news reporter and talk show host who contributes to the Washington Post's “On Faith” blog, challenges ordinary people to let God use them for impossible tasks. Such submission requires “crazy faith,” knowing God will bring success even when the task seems impractical and illogical. Appropriate for anyone experiencing a calling or facing a crisis, the author cautions that “fear cancels faith” and must be overcome by staring down life's Goliaths. Following an introductory chapter, each subsequent chapter includes the solidly researched life story of someone with “crazy faith,” followed by a “Crazy-Faith Challenge” for group study or individual reflection. From biblical characters like Moses and King David to heroes of black history like Harriet Tubman and Nelson Mandela, these driven dreamers aren't as ordinary as the title asserts. Yet their humble beginnings suggest anyone could develop similar determination. Read as a whole, their patchwork of history becomes a united tale of faith against all odds. Feisty, enthusiastic and encouraging, the author's language will inspire readers to face seemingly insurmountable challenges with “superhuman energy.” (Mar.)
