Living in Intimacy with Jesus – Moving in the Supernatural
Banning Liebscher reveals his amazing insight into a new generation in his book “Journey of a World Changer.” The book is designed as a 40 day devotional journal and as an extension of his earlier book “Jesus Culture.”
I liked the format of the material: Each of the 40 chapters (days) includes: An inspiring quote, the testimony of a “world changer,” instruction on discipleship, with “what if” exercises,” a pattern for prayer, a challenge for activation, and suggestions for additional reading for further reflection.
The probing study questions and solid instruction on discipleship and supernatural living provide an excellent balance of activation and reflection. The passionate testimonies of the miraculous working of the Holy Spirit through a new generation of world changers are inspiring and motivating. The strong positive affirmations help the reader accept ownership of their personal identify in Christ, understand the all-encompassing love of God, and accept the reality of the indwelling power and presence of Jesus in their lives. Banning also provides a plan for using the 40 day journey with friends with suggestions for a facilitator.
“Journey of a World a Changer: 40 Days to Ignite a Life That Transforms the World” reaches into the heart of a new generation of “revialists.” In this 40 day Journal Banning Liebscher leads his readers into a radical transformation, mobilizing, equipping, activating and challenging them to make an impact in changing their world.
