    Heitzig wants us to rise above the mundane and defy what is popularly described as normal. He gleans principles from the life of Daniel to encourage us to do so.

    Daniel is a role model for people who desire to be a counter-cultural force in a hostile political structure. Heitzig has identified eight characteristics that allowed Daniel to defy the normal of his day: self-control, faith, humility, integrity, dependence, courage, hope, and balance. Each of these qualities is explored in depth as Heitzig encourages us to develop the kind of character Daniel had.

    This book is more than just theory. Heitzig wants us to apply these characteristics so he gives us prompts at the end of each chapter. The first ones are invitations to think about the points he has made in the chapter deliberate. He then gives invitations to actually apply the principles to our lives defy normal.

    Heitzig explores a few other topics in the book too. I like his teaching on prayer. He uses the example of Daniel to identify the four fold strand of humble adoration, honest confession, heart felt petition, and holy motivation. Another aspect of this teaching I really liked was identification of what to pray for in the face of spiritual warfare.

    The background story of how Daniel arrived in Babylon is given so this would be a good book for those unfamiliar with the story. This is a good all around book to help Christians live life with integrity in an adverse situation. The application sections at the end of each chapter make this a good book for individual or group use. I highly recommend this book to those desiring to rise above the normal of this day and live their Christian life with integrity.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book through Icon Media for the purpose of an independent and honest review.

    Skip Heitzig in his new book Defying Normal published by Worthy Publishing Group gives us Soaring Above the Status Quo.

    From the back cover: Find a hill worth dying on

    How many of us lead lives of quiet desperationand dont even know it? Caught between the shifting moral landscape of our culture and a burning desire to make our lives count, too often we settle for less. God has so much more for us than conformity to the status quoif we will only take the necessary leap of faith.

    In Defying Normal, pastor Skip Heitzig offers such a challenge and provides practical, Biblical advice for pursuing a life of faith and transformation in uncertain times. Drawing on the life of Daniela nonconformist agent of God in a time and culture in desperate need of truth and lightDefying Normal dares you to embrace eight God-centered traits that will help you soar above the norm and live your faith in a bold and winning way.

    You dont have to blend in or give in to find and fulfill your purpose and impact your world. In fact, it can happen only when you defy what is popular and rise above the crowd to a new normal.

    Who ever said that we have to do what everybody else does? Pastor Heitzig reminds us that Paul said, Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. By Transformed he meant utterly changed. Call it an extreme makeover. Pastor Heitzig looks at the life of Daniel who, with his three friends, were nonconformists to life in Babylon and made great changes and shows us how we can do the same. There are eight God-centered traits that Pastor Heitzig focuses on: Self-Control, Faith, Humility, Integrity, Dependence, Courage, Hope and Balance. If we can be transformed then we can go out and transform where we live just like Daniel and his friends did! I think that everyone should have a copy of this book and it would make a terrific gift for friends and family so that they could be transformed as well.
