Sun Stand Still {:Book Review:}


{: Purchase Here:}

Genre: Christian Living

About the Author: Steven Furtick is the Pastor of Elevation Church, in Charolette, NC. Elevation Church is one of the fastest growing churches in the country. 

About the Book: This book is about cultivating audacious faith. The title and premises of the book comes from the story of Joshua when he asks God to make the the "Sun Stand Still" because he needed more time to fight the enemy army in order to take the promise land. Furtick uses the book to encourage the reader to tap into our own audacious faith while prompting and encouraging them to engage in their own Sun Stand Still prayers.

My Thoughts on the Book: This book had me writing out my own Sun Stand Still specific prayer the moment I finished it. I have honestly read that prayer to God and myself everyday since then. The book once again encouraged and challenged my faith and prayer life.  There were so many lines in this book that had me reaching for my phone to tweet a mind blowing quote, but I actually refrained every time except one. 

I am someone who highlights and makes notes and doodles in their books. I actually didn't do that in this book because I knew in the first chapter that it was one that I would be loaning out and recommending to friends a lot. But, if I had, the whole book would be one big highlight mark with words wrapped around the original print on the page. It was one of those kinds of books.

Progress on My Goal: This was the 12th book on my goal of 20 books for the year.

My Next Read: "The Cause Within You" by Matthew Barnett

  1. oh how awesome, I want to read that! I am from Charlotte and my brother went to his church and LOVED it before he joined the Marines. So glad to hear about this book, I love watching him on tv. We go to another church but if we lived closer into Charlotte I would be tempted to go there!
