Publisher's Description

Faith is trust. It is a confidence in the power and goodness of God that leads us to make good decisions and allows us to surrender our lives to Him. As we strive to mature spiritually and lead lives pleasing to God, we all want more faith. Hebrews 6:12 says that we are to be "imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises." One of the best ways to grow in faith is to imitate the lives of people who have shown great faith. Hebrews 11 guides us through the lives of men and women – like Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Moses, Rahab, David and others – who have done just that. Real people with real lives and real problems, who had faith in a great God and trusted Him at pivotal moments in their lives. By drawing on some of the greatest lives of faith in the Bible, readers will come to see that God was worthy of these men’s and women’s trust and faith during biblical times in the same way that He is worthy of ours today.

Author Bio

BRITT MERRICK was born and raised near Santa Barbara, CA in a little town on the beach named Carpinteria. He grew up entrenched in the surf industry, working for his parents’ business, Channel Islands Surfboards. Starting by sweeping out the shaping rooms, soon he was making surfboards alongside his father (Al Merrick) for some of the best surfers in the world. Britt was also handling the famous company’s advertising, marketing and amateur surf team. Although he received Jesus as a young child, Britt had never known what it was to walk with Him. He had both feet in the world, using drugs and alcohol, and getting into trouble. In his early twenties, Britt was introduced to the transforming power of the Word of God, and thus began a new life. Shortly after re-committing his life to the Lord, with a fresh fire for the Truth, Britt began to teach Bible studies at his parents’ home for the surfer kids in Carpinteria. These Bible studies eventually led to Britt teaching and preaching at a Friday night college ministry at a local church in Santa Barbara. In the fall of 2003, sensing a further call to ministry, Britt laid Channel Island Surfboards aside and he and his wife, along with some close friends, started a church called Reality in his hometown of Carpinteria. Since then, the Reality family has grown to include churches in Ventura, Los Angeles, Stockton, San Francisco and London. Reality is focused on biblical faithfulness, community transformation, church birthing and equipping the next generation of leaders. Britt continues to pastor full time and lives with his wife Kate, and their two children in Carpinteria.

 

Editorial Reviews

I thank God for men who not only teach the Word accurately but also live it out. This book describes the faith God wants us to have, and Britt’s life exemplifies it.
Francis Chan

Pastor of Cornerstone Church, Simi Valley, California

God has not promised that our skies would always be blue or that the road would always be smooth.He has promised that He will always be with us in the fiercest storm to see us safely through. It is one thing to know this intellectually, but quite another to know it experientially. Britt writes out of experience, and thus has proved thorough his own experiences the faithfulness of God, which makes this book authentic not just in theory but also in actual practice.

Pastor Britt’s powerful book is well known to my family. The instruction, lessons and Spirit-filled knowledge were the basis of our Bible study for more than a year at Reality Carpinteria, where my family and I attend. Big God will allow those seeking a closer walk with Jesus Christ to realize the endless love that our Lord offers us every moment . . . and why our greatest goal is to live in harmony with Him. Pastor Britt’s courage in the face of adversity demonstrates that he lives his life according to Scripture. Learn from this brave, humble man of God. Your family will be blessed by his great wisdom and gifts.

Britt and the entire Merrick family are an inspiration to many believers, including myself. The honesty and vulnerability they witness in this book remind me of how big our God is, and it encourages me to go toward the impossible by faith.

The greatest defense of faith is not all of the evidence or the rationale. The greatest defense is truth backed up by a lifestyle. Britt Merrick shows us how the heroes of faith did it, how he seeks to do it and how we can too. When we embrace a big God, we will have a big faith.
Josh D. McDowell
Speaker and Author of Evidence that Demands a Verdict and Evidence for the Resurrection

I am very encouraged when I meet young leaders such as Britt Merrick. He is a voice of the future; a leader we all can follow. Not only can he tell a story and motivate a crowd, but he is also biblically solid. It doesn’t get any better than this.
John M. Perkins
Author of Follow Me to Freedom and Let Justice Roll Down

I have written many books about spiritual breakthrough. It is something we all want. In Big God, Britt Merrick shows us a key to all spiritual breakthrough: simply having faith in a big God. Thank you, Britt.

    I really loved reading this book. I usually want a little more depth than is generally found in many devotionals, and was kind of expecting this book to be a little more 'devotionally' oriented, but I was in for a surprise...while it is 'devotional' in the actual sense of the word, it's also very weighty in theological matters.Big God addresses real issues with a scholarly grace, and yet does so without the rigidness of one of those academic journals theologians write to impress each other. The beautiful balance is that in addition to the heavy theology, it also communicates those truths in a down-to-earth and authentic way that I don't always see with scholarly books. And it has lots of Scripture... I'll bet the only book that has more scriptural references is the Bible!! I also love the way Britt references a wide array of theologians. I can sense his view of church unity in the way he pulls from many different ends of the orthodox Christian spectrum.I also noticed that this book (while being mainly about the Hall of Faith) pulls in all of Britt's greatest themes in life: prayer, God's glory, mission, ecclesiology, the kingdom of God, his family, etc. If there are future books in Britt's roster, they will sure to be drawing from the rich themes in this one, just as many of John Piper's books trace back to 'Desiring God.'What I like most is that it captured everything about the preaching pastor that Reality Carpinteria (his church) loves, and yet without exalting him to a pedestal. His true nature comes out of the writings, while Jesus Christ's preeminence shines all the more brightly.As a college pastor, I am happy to recommend this book to my own people.

    I absolutely love the book BIG GOD! It's been so cool to read through it and hear the stories of God's faithfulness. One of my favorite things about this book is the absolutely amazing free study guide that you can download here [...]. The Big God website also has some cool videos and more information about the author. I would highly recommend this book to individuals, pastors, ministry leaders...really, pretty much anyone would be blessed by it. I hope you enjoy and are blessed by it as much as I have been. :)
