Publisher's Weekly

With 10 million copies of The Prayer of Jabez under his belt, Christian author Wilkinson emerges with a book designed to help people become “delivery agents” for miracles from God. He offers seven “miracle keys”: actions that “release the miraculous in our lives.” Peppered with stories of miracles in which he has participated or that he has observed, the book focuses on ways that people can intuit the leading of God to respond to the needs of others. The place to begin, Wilkinson recommends, is by believing that “everyone you encounter has an unmet need that God strongly desires to meet supernaturally through you.” Critics of The Prayer of Jabez will find similar problems with this book—the suggestion that God responds to prayer with instant results and more than a whiff of a packaged program. In this volume, however, Wilkinson responds to previous criticisms of a self-serving theology by concentrating on helping readers make miracles happen for other people rather than for themselves.

    You Were Born For This by Bruce Wilkerson and David Kopp- 222 pages

    ''You were created to help others experience personal miracles on a regular basis. You were born to accomplish God's work by His power.''

    I agree with a few things in thsi book. Page 99 is good- the author has the right perspective on the apostle Peter!

    And I totally agree that we need to be constantly willing to be tools in the hands of the Master! We are here to glorify Him, and we must be ready to help others. And yes, I also believe thta miracles are ubiquitous yet amazing....and we need to open our eyes and praise the Lord for them!

    But otherwise, I would say the book was tedious; too long for its subject matter in the light that the author viewed it.

    I received this WaterBrook Multnomah book free in exchange for my honest opinion from the book club Blogging for Books. I was encouraged to write my thoughts, negative or positive, on this book.

    I've read many of Bruce Wilkinson's books, and have always found them to easy but enlightening reads. He has a wonderful way of using stories from his life and ministries to illustrate the points he is making.

    In YOU WERE BORN FOR THIS, Wilkinson asks us to consider an important question: If we believe God still work miracles, what happens if we are bold enough to ask God to accomplish those miracles through us?

    Wilkinson sets out the idea that we are meant to serve as a "living link" between Heaven and Earth. That the miracles God wants to accomplish in this world require our willingness to partner with God. This partnership requires our active asking of God to be sent on miracle missions on God's behalf, requires our willingness to take risks of faith.

    In the book, he lists 4 keys to living a life of miracles, this idea of making ourselves open and available to God. He also gives the reader the tools to "deliver" the miracle, although the delivery is still God's to do, we are as it has been said many times, God's hands and feet in the world.

    In all, it was a good read, but to me felt a little predictable, and a little too contrived.

    You Were Born for This by Bruce Wilkinson is a book about how to ready yourself to do the Everyday Miracle work of God. In some ways, this is a phenomenal book. If someone really wanted to focus their life toward delivering miracles from God to those who need them, but had never been brave enough to step out in faith, this would be the book for them. If someone is a newbie Christian and craves to see God move, this is for them. This book makes delivering miracles seem as feasible as driving to work or making dinner.

    There were a few big things that bothered me about the book, though. For one, the author constantly referenced material to come. If he would have just cut those parts from the book, he would probably have saved 20+ pages. Then, the way he structured his components of miracle delivery caused him to be redundant. During the second half of the book, I felt like I was rereading a lot of the first half.

    Lastly, the two biggest problems for me were near death blows. The first, I think the text would have been much stronger if he reinforced the whole point of miracles, which is God performs miracles to bring greater glory to Him. He mentions this offhandedly, but just as often he makes it seem like the point of miracles is to meet a need or to make the deliverer feel good. Those things may happen through a miracle, but the book as a whole would have been stronger had he made a greater point of saying that miracles are for God's glory. The second was he based his whole premise off of personal experience and not biblical example. For a book about miracles, there were surprisingly few scripture references, and the few included were weak. More comparisons with biblical miracles would have left few doubts in my mind as to whether miracles really work like this.

    Bottom line, I recommend this book with caution. In some ways it is a phenomenal book that I would recommend every Christian read. I just get nervous any time someone takes a supernatural idea and because they think they know the ins and outs of how it works, attempts to put that supernatural occurrence in a box. As helpful as his steps may be for one to recognize a miracle potential, I would hate for someone to miss a movement of God because it didn't fit Wilkinson's "keys".

    Quick Synopsis:

    Mr. Wilkinson encourages Christians to be aware of and alert to God's nudges, explaining how to minister to people who you have never even met before. He demonstrates through various stories how this could play out, and then exhorts others to do the same.

    My Opinion:

    For the most part, I strongly agreed with the book. There were a few things which I disagreed with, although these we generally things which were not very prevelant in the book.

    Things I liked: the abundence of stories to help demonstrate what the author is saying, the realization of the fact that God is willing to use people, but that without His help we are useless, and the rest of most of the book.

    Things I did not agree with: The nuanced teaching that God does not ever have bad things happen, and the idea that God's plans can be altered by our actions.

    Rating:

    8 out of 10 stars

    You Were Born For This: Seven Keys To A Life Of Predictable Miracles, written by David Wilkinson and David Kopp, is a book designed to bring hope and inspiration to the reader while guiding him into a position to bring the presence of God into the lives of others.

    This book has the ability to inspire it's readers beyond the normalcy of the Christian life. It encourages Christians to purposefully get involved within the lives of others on a daily basis with what is termed as "miracles." The idea of our involvement in the lives of others being considered as miracles leaves me a little skeptical. Miracles, in my opinion, are those things that occur contrary to nature by an act of God, thus the term blessings would seem to be more appropriate.

    Another issue that was raised within my own mind was the numerous references to Mr. Wilkerson's best selling book, The Prayer of Jabez. Although this book, You Were Born For This, on the whole, has great content, these references to his other book seem to bring the reader back and forth from one book to another too many times.

    Not withstanding the afore mentioned comments, this book is very well written and could become a blessing to anyone willing to turn its pages. Thus it is a recommended read.
