Gerard Long, executive director of Alpha USA, was a rising young British athlete when he experienced the awakening that turned his life upside down and radically changed his heart. In many ways, he was on top of the world--he had a promising career, the love of a lifetime, and financial success. But while he knew of God's love, he didn't live from that love. God had a life-altering revelation in store for Gerard.
Awakening to God invites you on the same adventure. Gerard shares biblical truth and practical advice gained through his spiritual journey. Awakening to God compels us to go and live the abundant life given to us in Christ. To rediscover the gospel that calls us to action. To become fishers of men. To change the world.

bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Call to be awakened to God and His purposesOctober 9, 2014bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Do you feel down in your Christian faith, like you are not fulfilling the life God has for you? Are you frustrated because of your lack of impact on those around you? Perhaps you are passionate but you need practical ideas for sharing your faith.
Long has written this book for you. He shares his own awakening to God and calls us to an awakening as well. He relates how he was awakened to God's lordship, to God's love and His purpose for life. Long found his own love for God and His Word awakened too. He tells his story of a successful career in banking and then God preparing him and his family for the move to the U.S. He shares the personal grief at the death of two of their children, and then death of his sister and his brother.
Long encourages us to awaken to God and His love, to the Holy Spirit and power for life, to our calling of making disciples, to the brokenness of the world, eternity, God-given vision for life, God's provision, prayer, and drawing others to Christ.
This is a very personal account of Long's spiritual journey interwoven with encouragement for us to join in the adventure. He shares biblical truth and the practical advice he has gained through his experience of devastating brokenness and incredible joy.
I recommend this book to those who feel something is missing in their Christian journey, those who want to see God working in their lives. The context of the ministry is ALPHA, a nonprofit organization that introduces people to Christianity through courses supported by many denominations in 169 countries.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
