You Can Be Everything God Wants You To Be by Max Lucado ~ A thought provoking gift!

     Max Lucado has done a great job with this short, yet powerfully messaged "gift" book, "You Can Be Everything God Wants You To Be." A thought provoking guide to anyone who is searching for their place in life, and maybe even a surprise to those who already feel they have found their place. Max points out statistical evidence that a large number of people are unsatisfied in their current employment, just getting through the day. He offers hope and wisdom for readers, that they ARE equipped for a purpose and that purpose will lead to a fulfilled and worthy life.

     Max shares biblical truths about our purpose, our place and how our Creator made each of us with special abilities that are absolutely unique to every one of us. Max uses scripture to guide us on a thinking journey of our childhood, what did we love to do? Where were our successes? What made us feel amazing? He encourages us to use these memories to find our "Sweet Spot," a merging of our skills, passions and God's purpose for our life to find our calling.

    Overall, this book is thought provoking and uplifting, encouraging us not to settle for a life of dullness, but to find our purpose in God's plan for our lives so that we can live in our sweet spot! It is just short enough to be a very quick read, but long enough to leave the reader with more than just an entertaining book, but one that has the power to push us to change our life! Perfect for the graduate who is considering these very things, yet also for anyone you know that might be searching for more.

*I was given a copy of this book to review free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

AFRICAN STUDY BIBLE NEW Kickstarter Campaign!!!

Major Christian Organizations Partner to Launch
The Africa Study Bible
With a Kickstarter Campaign!

            The goal? To raise $1 million for 100,000 study Bibles for the people of Africa.

 photo ASB_zpsuhf0itpg.jpg“The Africa Study Bible is a project that has almost unprecedented ability to positively influence the body of Christ in Africa, perhaps more than other single continental-wide project in the history of Christianity.” --Dr. Danny McCain, University of Jos, Nigeria 

You Can Help Get the Campaign Going!!!

Watch the video about the African Bible Kickstarter program:

--Dr. Danny McCain, University of Jos, Nigeria Wheaton, IL – Millions of English-speaking Africans know and love Christ, but for many, God’s word is hard to grasp. With nearly every full evangelical study Bible written from the viewpoint of the United States and United Kingdom, Africans have lacked a resource that connects with their unique experience, hindering discipleship. But that is about to change as major Christian organizations, led by Oasis International, are joining together to launch the Africa Study Bible (ASB), a six-year, cross-continental effort that has produced the first study Bible developed by Africans for Africans.

“With the ASB, we’re bringing the power of Scripture to Africa in a new and culturally relevant way,” says Dr. Matthew Elliott, president of Oasis, publisher of the ASB. “Under the leadership of an 11-member editorial board of scholars from across Africa, we’ve brought together 350 writers and editors from over 40 African countries, representing 50 denominations. This is an unprecedented project that will impact the global church.” 

     With the editorial nearly complete, Oasis, with the support of its partners, is inviting fellow Christians to join with them in helping get the ASB into the hands of Africans. With a goal of raising one million dollars to print the first 100,000 copies, Oasis is seeking private donors as well as launching a Kickstarter campaign, which begins April 18 and runs through June 16. Contributors to the Kickstarter campaign have the opportunity to receive incentives ranging from artwork prints to limited Italian leather editions of the ASB as well as all-expense paid trips to the launch of the ASB in the United States and in Africa.
“Our goal is to have the first run of the ASB available in Africa by the end of 2016,” says Elliott. “We already know of more than 100 million people in denominations and movements in Africa whose leaders want to use the ASB for discipleship so there is a lot of anticipation throughout the continent.” 

     Designed to grow the faith of African church members, teach them to evangelize their communities, and apply a biblical worldview to their society, the ASB uses the New Living Translation and includes 2,400 plus features such as application notes, stories and proverbs, touchpoints that link Africa and the Bible, learn notes that explain basic theology, and major theme articles that apply the Bible to key issues. Oasis plans to initially release the ASB in English with French and Portuguese translations in development. Oasis is also developing a full-featured app of the study Bible.

     To support the effort, Oasis is partnering with Tyndale House Publishers to create the study Bible. Other participants include Willow Creek and Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit, IFES (International Fellowship of Evangelical Students), Scripture Union, Africa Leadership, TransWorld Radio, Moody Broadcasting, Center for Early African Christianity, PJA (Publications pour la Jeunesse Africane), MMD Global, The Livingstone Corporation, InSight Books, Urban Ministries Inc., and the Association of Evangelicals in Africa, with additional participants being added on a regular basis.

“We have seen the hand of God in amazing ways throughout the development of this project,” says Elliott. “In the words of our supervising editor, Dr. John Jusu, the content of the ASB is bubbling up from the cultures of Africa. The biblical truth is percolating through our own cultures and stories to create a rich and textured tapestry that Africans can claim as their own.”
