The condition of our hearts, in a spiritual sense, will determine the course of our lives. So how do we keep our hearts turned toward and tuned into God rather than letting our circumstances dictate our spiritual reality?
Through powerful personal testimony and keen biblical insights, Sergio De La Mora invites readers to experience a heart revolution and start living life from the inside out. His passionate 40-day plan will bring individual readers and entire churches on a healing journey through pain and forgiveness to new hope, purpose, and ultimate victory. Touching on all the practical struggles believers face, including money, sex, anger, love and marriage, justice, evangelism, and much more, The Heart Revolution will lead a new generation into the fullness of God's plan for their lives and his kingdom.
Sergio De La Mora is the visionary founder and pastor of Cornerstone Church of San Diego, California, one of the fastest growing churches in America. Called "The Turn-Around Specialist," Sergio De La Mora has influenced a multigenerational and multicultural community in both English and Spanish for more than a decade. Under Sergio's leadership, Cornerstone Church has a weekly congregation of over 5,000, evolving from the ground up. Cornerstone Church has steadily continued to grow in size and impact--a testament to Sergio's understanding, skill, commitment, and unique approach to advancing the kingdom for Christ throughout the community.
As a leading voice in the Latino community, he has been featured several times on TBN, the world's largest religious television network. A board member for Joel Osteen's Champion Network, Sergio serves as one of the Partnering Pastors for Night of Hope in New York, Los Angeles, and Jerusalem. In 2008 Sergio De La Mora launched the Heart Revolution Conference, gathering well-known thought leaders from all over the nation with the purpose of revolutionizing the hearts of the next generation.
His weekly television and radio broadcasts, The Power of a Turned Heart, empower thousands to live, love, and lead from their heart. He is the cofounder of the Turning the Hearts Center, a nonprofit organization designed to empower youth and families and restore family unity and self-sufficiency through a variety of programs, seminars, and support resources.
Sergio De La Mora lives in San Diego, California, with his wife, Georgina, and their six daughters.
Mora, a former drug addict and disc jockey who now pastors the third-fastest-growing church in North America, offers an inspirational book of poignant stories, including many about his father, to whom he dedicates the book with deep love. When young aspiring skateboarder Sergio skips church to practice his sport, his father learns about it and burns the skateboard while Sergio and his siblings watch in disbelief. Sergio, his father says, nothing in your life will ever come before God again. Put Him first and you can have anything. Put Him second and youll have nothing. Gods goal, the author says, is to change our hearts in a revolutionary way and make us holy. The book touches on many areas of life, including money, sex, anger, justice, and success, and almost overreaches the profound stories to become a self-help book. What redeems it is the passion of the author, who does not shy away from authentic storytelling about change inspired by some excruciatingly difficult experiences. (Jan.)
