Thirty years in the making, Audacious is a deep dive into the message that has compelled Beth Moore to serve women around the globe. Glancing over the years of ministry behind her and strengthening her resolve to the call before her, she came to the realization that her vision for women was incomplete. It lacked something they were aching for. Something Jesus was longing for. Beth identifies that missing link by digging through Scripture, unearthing life experiences, and spotlighting a turning point with the capacity to infuse any life with holy passion and purpose. What was missing? Well, let's just say, it's audacious and it's for all of us. And it's the path to the life you were born to live.

From the Book▼▲
Our perception of Jesus is sketched on the canvas in a pencil swayed strongly by this point of view: do we see Him as a giver or a taker? Naturally, the only healthy inclination is to flee from a taker and run to a giver. It's not that Jesus has never taken anything from me because He has. He's taken shame from me, frequent defeat, paralyzing fear, debilitating guilt, and chronic regret. Well, and jealousy. There was that. And a ton of insecurity. That's not to say we don't lay some things down and make some sacrifices on the path of following Jesus. We do, but as they say, therein lies the paradox. Self-importance turns out to be self-sabotage and getting over ourselves turns into finding ourselves. Our true selves. The lives we were born to live. We'll never catch a glimpse of vision with our eyes rolled back in our heads. We'll slit the throat of our own satisfaction with the silky smooth feather of self-focus.
To live the life we long for, we want people around us to recognize with their chins dropped that we have something beyond what our education and training can explain. That goes for you even if you earned a doctorate. Our lives were meant to exceed what a natural course of events could explain. We want people to see that, what we have, we could only get from being with Jesus.
