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.
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.
