Book Review: Sun Stand Still (Steven Furtick)

Many of us live life wanting to do more for God with our lives.  We have dreams and aspirations that we want to accomplish for the Kingdom of God, but many times are too afraid to ask.

Sun Stand Still by Steven Furtick (Pastor of Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC) tackles this very issue.  In the book Furtick gives first-hand accounts about how he, and his church members have seen God do the impossible through what he calls “Sun Stand Still Prayers.”

The term “Sun Stand Still Prayer” comes from the book of Joshua when the leader prayed to God for the Sun to stand still during battle, and God honored his faith.  Furtick goes throughout the book to prove the point that we should have the same type of audacious faith even today.

As I read this book I couldn’t help but look at my own life and dreams that I have for ministry.  This book has challenged me to become audacious in my requests of faith to God.  

If you have a vision that God has given you, or if you just simply want to learn how to grow in faith with God and expand your mustard seed, Sun Stand Still is a must read.  It will challenge you, and it will stretch your faith.  I have to give it 5 stars!

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review
