Think you’ve never experienced a miracle? The New York Times bestselling author of Win the Day reminds us of the millions of miracles God performs every day and inspires us to live with a clearer sense of identity and purpose.
In our age of instant access to information, we are in danger of losing our grip on our most ancient emotion—childlike wonder. We need to cultivate a holy curiosity. For what? For everything! Too many of us are so wrapped up in our own worlds that we end up worshiping a god who looks like us, thinks like us, and votes like us. As a result of our impoverished view of God, most of us are only living at half capacity—we let anxiety keep us from purusing our dreams because we can’t see that God is far bigger than our biggest problems and close enough to help.
In response, Mark Batterson invites us to consider the miraculous work of God going on around us every day. He highlights three aspects of God that we take for granted. God is:

  • Bigger than we think: our complex, interconnected universe speaks to God’s vastness. Mark Batterson shows us how to dream bigger and live more confidently in light of God’s immense power.
  • Closer than we realize: God is not only bigger than your biggest problems, he is close enough to help you face them. This book will help you take inventory of what’s holding you back and a live with a greater awareness of God’s empowering presence.
  • Better than we can imagine: the millions of miracles all around us speak not only to God’s power but also to his love which equips us to live out the dreams he has given us.

There might not be an overnight cure for wounds caused by years of discord in public discourse. However, Batterson believes the words "please," "sorry," and "thank you" can take us a long way toward healing! Learn how the three "arts" of asking, apologizing, and appreciating can pave the way for healthy relationships and successful careers. 176 pages, hardcover from Multnomah.
