Publisher's Description

God has everything waiting for you!
 
We start out with hearts brimming with hope and excitement. And that energy carries us for awhile, maybe even years. But one day we suddenly find ourselves like the man in the Good Samaritan story: half-dead, going through the dreaded motions hoping no one around us notices.

It’s not that we’ve stopped loving God, but it’s just that things have happened along the way that have caused us to settle for a small life, one defined primarily by activity for God. We look around and sigh: It wasn’t supposed to be this way

Author Greg Hawkins knows that reality firsthand. He also knows there is something beyond that reality if we have the courage to step out and hope once more. Far from giving us simply more stuff to do, Greg shares the necessary and doable shifts in our thought and language that lead to true intimacy with God.

It wasn’t supposed to be this way.

Editorial Reviews

"I’m so thankful that as a young leader I was able to learn from Greg Hawkins. He taught me some of my earliest and most fundamental lessons—about leadership, about life, about faith—and I’m thrilled that now so many people will be able to learn from him through these pages. Greg is brilliant and kind, and his spiritual journey through these pages is a beautiful and inspiring one." 
—Shauna Niequist, author of Bread & Wine and Savor

"Greg Hawkins is a man with an enormously capable mind and a deeply feeling heart. His book More will help you connect your mind and heart to each other—and to God."
—John Ortberg, senior pastor, Menlo Church, and author of All the Places to Go

"Greg Hawkins has given us all a gift. His transparency and humility invite us on a journey of discovery. More is a spiritual devotional derived from data gathered in the most technical way and then processed through the filters of a heartfelt search for God’s best. Anyone who takes the time to read these pages can find hope and direction for the challenges life presents."
—Allen Jackson, senior pastor, World Outreach Church

"Research suggests that one in eight people in a given church live the ’life of more.’ I want to be one of those people, and as a pastor I desire to lead others to the same place. Greg masterfully lays out the journey and invites us to join him. I’m in! You will be too after you read this important book."
—Randy Frazee, senior minister, Oak Hills Church, and author of Think, Act, Be Like Jesus

"I enjoyed a front-row seat for two decades watching Greg yearn and reach for more. His spirit inspired me! This book will inspire you!"
—Bill Hybels, senior pastor, Willow Creek Community Church

"In Greg Hawkins’ new book, More, he tackles the questions many of us have asked: ’Is there more to this life? Is there more to my relationship with God?’ With very real conviction, he proves the answer is yes! Filled with practical, Scripture-based suggestions, years of research, and personal anecdotes, this book pushes us toward intimacy with God. I encourage anyone who wants to experience more of life to read this life-changing book."
—Robert Morris, founding senior pastor, Gateway Church, and best-selling author of The Blessed Life, Truly Free, and Frequency

"When I met Greg Hawkins more than twenty years ago, I quickly discovered his passion for Christ. Today he remains a person full of zeal and zest for living a Christian life of eternal significance—and his goal is to pass it on to you. More exemplifies how preparing in this life for the next life is the most important thing we as Christians can do. This book will grip your heart spiritually, as it did mine, and your soul will be stirred by Greg’s vibrant faith and passion."
—Jon R. Wallace, president, Azusa Pacific University

"I’ve never read a book so data-driven that stirred my heart toward love in all my life. If you personally need a soul reawakening to long for and pursue more of the life Jesus promised, pick up More and don’t be surprised when you struggle to put it down."
—Shane Farmer, senior pastor, Cherry Hills Community Church in Denver, CO

    Do you feel that life isn't supposed to be this way? Do you feel like you were made for more, for that abundant life Jesus promised?

    Hawkins has written this book because he believes each of us can experience the more that God has for us right here, right now. (9) He questioned half a million church attendees about their spiritual lives. This book contains what God revealed through that research.

    He found out that many of his assumptions about what produced spiritual growth were wrong. Involvement in church activities did not predict a greater spiritual growth, did not lead to greater intimacy with God nor one becoming a more loving person. He wrote a book for church leaders about those findings.

    But what about individuals? Hawkins talked with people who lived an abundant life. He found that intimacy with God was the key to that life of more. He gives six strategic changes in thinking and how we practice our faith that are necessary to live the life God intended. Shifts in thinking include leaving the kingdom of me, going from me to we (including God in you), knowing the Bible is essential to survival, knowing that we're dead, and there is only now. Changes in our faith practice include saying we're sorry to God (confession), times of stillness, building a web of relationships, being present in the moment and emptying ourselves.

    I am impressed with this book. Hawkins writes, We were created for deep intimacy and oneness with God. (51) He says it is something we cannot even imagine. But we can move ourselves toward that reality. Hawkins' suggested changes in thinking and faith practice rang true to me. The abundant life is available but we will not approach it unless we make some changes.

    I recommend this book to Christians who long for more in their spiritual life. Hawkins provides the framework but each believer must contemplate the changes in thinking and behaving. It is a continuing journey, he says. Each day, believers can have deeper intimacy with God and more abundant lives.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
