'God took a couple of lay people who decided to live this big life...they had no idea what God would do with them. But what a journey it has been.' Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas and 2008 Republican presidential candidate
'Big Life is doing what the Apostle Paul did...' Lieutenant Colonel Oliver L. North, political commentator and New York Times best-selling author
'I welcome this book. The story of Big Life needs to be told.' David Kerrigan, General Director, Baptist Missionary Society (United Kingdom)
A Big Life: Ordinary People Led by an Extraordinary God tells the story of how thousands of believers, from suburban America to the jungles of the subcontinent of India, Pakistan, and beyond, were brought together in a phenomenal work of God.
No Christian was more ordinary than John Heerema, but he was obedient. God took him on an extraordinary, emotional, and often painful journey, shaping him to be a new kind of missionary on a new kind of mission. It was a simple strategy, a strategy not new after all, but ancient, because He had first shown it to us two thousand years ago.
Over the next nine years, hundreds of obedient believers were grafted into an unbelievable ministry that has brought the salvation of Jesus to tens of thousands. The book of Acts has been put into action once again in the ministry of Big Life. A Big Life is a must for everyone who wishes to see how God responds today to the obedience of his people.
Sharon5 Stars Out Of 5A Big LifeNovember 11, 2012SharonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love the fact that God chose to use such an ordinary person like John Heerema. John's life was not easy, as a young boy he had major struggles. He chose to persevere through them especially when times were tough. John shares with us in detail about his young life and the process that God took him through. It is very evident that God chose to use John and his wife Kathy. Kathy shares with us her own journey to God and it wasn't an easy one. John and Kathy are real everyday people_almost like friends. This makes for a very easy comfortable read.
I am thrilled to see another "style" of missions. Sometimes I get the feeling that we try to limit the things that God wants to do because we are not ready or are afraid of what people might say or think. I LOVE that John is sooooo willing to think outside "the box." We need to get rid of the box because God's plans are too huge for any size box we might want to make.
I think this book will help people understand that we can do missions work in many different ways. When God chooses to use someone, He will remove the "obstacles" or what we humans see as obstacles out of the way. God wants to use all of us but we need to be willing vessels for Him. John and Kathy are such vessels! Will you let God use you as a vessel for Him and His cause? People are yearning for Him. We need to get Him out of our box and let Him have free reign over our lives.
Thank you John and Kathy for your example of following God in His timing and His direction! Will you let God use you His way and not yours?
I am pleased to give this book a five star rating.
