The Faith Zone
IF ONLY I HAD A LITTLE MORE FAITH...
Have you ever thought that before? Most of us have thought it, or even heard it from others, at some point in our lives. But what exactly is faith anyway? And how do we get more of it? And if we did get more of it, could we actually move mountains into the sea?
In The Faith Zone, Steve Long tackles the subject of faith with his trademark practicality, simplicity and wit. Steve argues that faith is very simply acting on thoughts from God. To have faith then, we need to actually listen when God is speaking to us, and we need to do something about what we hear. When we do, we can expect the rewards of a life filled with faith, and we will see God perform impossible miracles all around us. Join the journey of faith as Steve Long boldly leads the way for the rest of us to follow.
Comments from Mark Virkler: This book was written by Steve Long, a close friend and one of the senior leaders at Catch the Fire in Toronto, Canada. Steve asked if I would write two-way journaling questions for the conclusion of each chapter, which allows God to speak directly to each reader about their faith. I was more than thrilled to comply, so here you have it! Explore the feats of biblical faith, letting God speak to you about expressing His faith out through your life and into your world. Quite an unbeatable combination, wouldn't you say?
