Product Description

Growing up in a traditional Southern Baptist home, Chad Norris loved sweet tea, football and Jesus. But when he realized that the Jesus he had heard about in Sunday School and seminary didn't measure up to the Jesus he read about in the Bible, he began to ask questions. He was unprepared for the way God answered.

Suddenly it was as if the miracles of the Bible had jumped off the pages and into his life and the lives of those he prayed for. Healings, visions, angels, and other wonders challenged everything he thought he knew about the presence of Jesus, the Father and the Holy Spirit in the world today. And if the idea of miracles sounds strange and unbelievable to you, here's a secret: you're not alone.

Humorous, poignant and honest, Signs, Wonders and a Baptist Preacher shows that it's perfectly normal to think that God's ways are not so normal. As you travel with Chad, you will discover what happens when God shows up in your ordinary, everyday-life--especially when you doubt he will.

Publisher's Description

Baptist Preacher Takes the "Weird" Out of the Supernatural

Demonstrating humor, candor, and personal vulnerability, this Southern Baptist preacher offers an entertaining, non-religious look at the Holy Spirit. He shares transparently, recounting his own history of depression and panic attacks until Jesus rescued him and showed him how to do the works of the Father. As Norris explains, "I had no paradigm for that." Then he challenges readers to engage with the supernatural.

Even though Jesus said we will do even greater things than he did, we don't. Norris's engaging narrative style lowers readers' defenses and opens their minds to the idea that these "greater things" are more attainable than they think. Because we are loved more than we imagine, says Norris, we are more capable of doing the Father's works than we have ever considered.

    Signs, Wonders , and a Baptist Preacher is the latest book that I've received from Chosen Books for reviewing.

    The book tells Chad's story and struggles, as he starts off from a typical conservative viewpoint... and finds himself more and more wanting to see things like Jesus did in this world. As he asks, the more things begin happening.

    The book seems to aim to convince the reader from a more conservative background that seeing supernatural really is possible. He tries to ease into this gently, openly admitting at times that these are things he normally would have thought of as crazy.

    Towards the end of the book, he does get a bit more into the hows... with encouragement to try praying for someone and see what happens.

    Chad's story is interesting to read, and it's good to see that God can always use even anxious and normal people in big ways and supernatural things.

    Chad Norris spends the majority of his novel describing a faith transformation that took him from a mundane, pseudo-relationship with God, to one that is vibrant and full of the Lords voice, healing, and direction. Norris doesn't spend much time sentimentalizing this transformation, but instead describes why he was resistant to the supernatural and what led him to seek it and finally embrace it on a daily basis. In the first part of this book, I noticed that I had a hard time concentrating. As I re-read time after time I wondered if the book was boring or poorly written. As Norris's ideas (and writing style) began to sync with my brain, I realized that perhaps my mind kept wondering while reading because this book left me with many things to contemplate. I enjoy the fact that I interacted with this novel and that Norris gives some simple steps that he himself took to get to the deep faith walk he now desperately wants to share with others. If nothing else, when I was finished with this book I had a deep desire to read scripture and return to the roots of everything; the miraculous life and person of Jesus Christ.

    Chad Norris in his new book, "Signs, Wonders and a Baptist Preacher" published by Chosen Books shows us How Jesus Flipped My World Upside Down.

    From the back cover: What If the Supernatural Were Really Real?

    Growing up in a traditional Southern Baptist home, Chad Norris loved sweet tea, football and Jesus. But when he realized that the Jesus he had heard about in Sunday school and seminary didn't measure up to the Jesus he read about in the Bible, he began to ask questions.

    He was unprepared for the way God answered.

    Suddenly it was as if the miracles of the Bible had jumped off the pages and into his life and the lives of those he prayed for. Healings, visions, angels and other wonders challenged everything he thought he knew about the presence of Jesus, the Father and the Holy Spirit in the world today. And if the idea of miracles sounds strange and unbelievable to you, here's a secret: You are not alone.

    Humorous, poignant and honest, Signs, Wonders and a Baptist Preacher shows that it's perfectly normal to think that God's ways are not so normal. As you travel with Chad, you will discover what happens when God shows up in your ordinary, everyday life-especially when you doubt He will.

    If you are like me you grew up with a conservative background. We did what we were supposed to do and life was pretty good. There were challenges and we faced them. That's pretty much it. Chad Norris had that kind of background until he felt that there was more. So he held a healing service and a blind woman left seeing. Wow, conservative was shattered right before his eyes. It is time for a whole new way of thinking. It is time to throw conservative to the winds and invite God,not only into our lives in a fresh new manner, but into the way we operate as well as think. "Signs, Wonders and a Baptist Preacher" is the perfect tool to allow a brand new way of thinking and operating into our lives.

    To say that reading "Signs, Wonders and a Baptist Preacher" turned my world upside down is a complete understatement. My mind is still spinning.

    When I selected this book to review, I had a secret agenda to discredit it. However, I couldn't find anything to discredit; not the book nor the author, Chad Norris.

    I just have one thing to say about "Signs, Wonders and a Baptist Preacher", you need to get your hands on it and read it. There isn't a book out there quite like it.

    If you have any doubts, are skeptical or cynical when it comes to the supernatural, well then, this book is for you. There is nothing over the top or sensational about this book at all. This is by far the best book I've read on the subject.

    Chad Norris openly and transparently shares how he went from a baptist preacher who doesn't believe in signs and wonders, to a believer. He writes about his life and he does so with depth, sincerity and a sense of humor too.

    I really enjoyed reading this book and learned a lot. "Signs, Wonders and a Baptist Preacher" provoked, challenged and changed me. I highly recommend it.

    In conclusion, I want to thank the publisher, Chosen for sending me a complimentary copy of this book to review.
