Publisher's Description

Bill Purvis had to be left for dead before he discovered that everything he was searching for could be found in Jesus Christ. As a teen, Purvis nearly died when stabbed three times by a pimp during an encounter with a prostitute. With his pericardium sac pierced, liver punctured and his jugular vein completely severed, he cried out to Jesus, who miraculously saved his life. In the more than thirty years since that day, he's built a large church and become a leader and mentor to many.

Make a Break for It is a transformational road map meant to guide you by helping you pinpoint where you need to start and then providing detailed step-by-step guidance on how to successfully and continuously cultivate the transformation God has in mind for you. Your life will truly be transformed as you discover the importance of alone time with God, the secret to keeping your own excuses from holding you back, the significant role mentors play in your success, how to handle betrayal, and how to cultivate traits like integrity and humility. You have all of the tools you need to break out of the mold and begin living the life God called you to!

Editorial Reviews

This book is long overdue! Bill has been a friend and encourager to me for years, and his story is a true testament to what God can do in your life, from wherever you start. Each chapter will challenge and raise your faith, which is what you want a book to do. Make a Break for It delivers!
In today’s world, with all the challenges we face, Bill’s words of wisdom and encouragement on how to live your life are very inspirational. Live your life for God, being good to others . . . this book is right on the mark.
I have had the privilege of having a friendship that spans thirty years with Dr. Bill Purvis, so it gives me great joy to recommend his book, Make a Break for It. Bill goes into great detail to tell you how he broke away from a lifestyle that appealed to his lowest and least and how he responded to a new lifestyle that has brought him to his highest and best. This is the type of book that can help transform a person’s life not only on this earth, but for all of eternity. If I had a friend who needed to turn his life around, this is the book that I would recommend. My advice to you is to “make a break for it” and get to your local bookstore as soon as possible!
Bill will remind you of the often overlooked yet powerful ability that God has given us: the power to choose! Choosing to live your life intentionally and purposefully is one of the most important decisions you can make. Bill is living proof of that, and his testimony inspires hope while his words ignite passion to continually pursue God’s plan for your life. No matter what trails behind you from yesterday or lies in front of you today, you can, “make a break for it”, and watch God truly bless your future!
This book is a game changer! Make a break for it!
Make a Break for It will change your life! Our strength lies in our ability to overcome obstacles. Bill is a living example of someone who overcame enormous obstacles. Using his dramatic testimony, he shows readers they too can overcome any obstacle in their life though God’s power!

    Gritty and Honest - A must Read

    It's not often you find a pastor who is willing to let you into his personal life. Having grown up the son of a pastor I've seen the hurt and backstabbing people will do in the church, so when a pastor is willing to lay it all in the open it is a big deal. I've sat under the teaching and leadership of Pastor Bill since 2009 when the Army brought me to Fort Benning. Even after being at Cascade Hills for six years I did not know many of the details Pastor Bill shared in his book. Not only is it a great read for someone who needs to know Christ, it is great for any follower of Christ regardless of their maturity in their Christian walk.

    This book takes you on the incredible journey of the life of Pastor Bill Purvis while inspiring, motivating, and challenging you to grow and change and discover for yourself the incredible journey that God has for you, personally. Couldn't wait to get to the last chapter and was not disappointed. Thank you, Pastor Bill.
