Bill Johnson in his new book, “Defining Moments book coverDefining Moments” published by Whitaker House gives us God-Encounters with Ordinary People Who Changed the World.

From the back cover:  Your Defining Moment Is Waiting

Defining Moments is a fascinating look at the remarkable ways in which God has used ordinary people to change history. But it is more than just history; it unveils the future. Prophetic in nature, the book reveals what God wants to do in each of our lives to fulfill His purposes today, tomorrow, and in the years to come.

The stories in this collection of God-encounters carry a prophetic anointing for all who have ears to hear. Author Bill Johnson highlights significant traits and contributions of well-known leaders like John Wesley, Charles Finney, Dwight Moody, Maria Woodworth-Etter, Carrie Judd Montgomery, Smith Wigglesworth, John G. Lake, Evan Roberts, Rees Howells, Aimee Semple McPherson, Kathryn Kuhlman, Randy Clark, and Heidi Baker, explaining the impact these leaders can have on us today as we respond to the life-changing truths revealed through their lives.

There is power in knowing the testimonies of others-men and women who experienced God in a defining moment and said yes to His unique call on their lives. It is a power that inspires us to hunger for God in such a way that we, too, have an encounter with Him that launches us into the world of the “impossible,” enabling us to fulfill a greater measure of our destiny.

What will be your defining moment?

The Dictionary defines “Defining Moment” as:  “a point at which the essential nature or character of a person, group, etc., is revealed or identified.” Pastor Johnson is giving us thirteen detailed histories of well-known Christian leaders.  Want to build your faith? Reading these well-researched “Defining Moments” of these ordinary individuals who God used. Why will this build your faith? Because what God does for one person He will certainly do for others. We have all been called for a purpose, Pastor Johnson shows us what God has done previously in others which should ignite a passion for God to use our talents to change the world. I believe that this is a book that you might read all the way through more than once. I recommend this book highly! I recommend it as a gift for friends and family so that they can have their faith ignited for their “Defining Moments” as well.
