Girl Meets God

From Rebecca Segers
author: Winner, Lauren F.
Girl Meets God
 “Girl Meets God” is the memoir of a young woman who is the product of a Jewish/Christian marriage, but raised a Reformed Jew.  As she grows into her teens, she is drawn ever more deeply into her faith and as a college student at Columbia, she converts to Orthodox Judaism (this is necessary as her Judaism has been passed down patrilineally and is thus not accepted according to Orthodox Jewish standards).  Notwithstanding her deep commitment to the faith of her father(s), she finds herself drawn even more fully to Jesus and ultimately commits to Christianity, converting yet again while studying at Oxford University in England.  An incredibly bright and articulate woman, Lauren is still sorting out her connections to her past and her deepening Christian identity.  At times witty, clever, midrashic and thoughtful or all at once, this moving memoir is sure to make the reader ponder his or her own faith journey and perhaps strengthen it as well.

Glory invasion : walking under an open heaven
Can quantum physics and string theory support faith and miracles?  Read this mind-boggling book.  It will amaze you, excite you, and leave you with more questions than you had before reading it. This book is a powerful combination of testimony, the Word, theory and science. The author shows us that the unseen things that God used and uses to create are His presence and sound waves. Every created thing has sound waves and responds to sound waves spoken with the glory and Spirit of God.  If you first get into the glory zone of His presence and then speak forth what He shows or tells you, creation will respond to your word.  Glory Invasion is full of amazing stories of miracles, and gives great insight into how and why they occur, and how we can accelerate miraculous harvests.

evident throughout. You will see God reaching those who many would write
off as unreachable. This book will make you jealous for a more dynamic,
authentic Christian lifestyle. You may or may not like the journal format,
but the content makes this a must-read.

The supernatural power of a transformed mind : access to a life of miracles

From Ginny Pisciotta
author: Johnson, Bill
The supernatural power of a transformed mind : access to a life of miracles

If you are tired of reading and talking about a gospel of power, but not seeing it in action, this book is a must read. Miracles should be a normal part of Christianity. To return to the orginal mission, to do what Jesus did, we must radically change our thinking. We must renew our minds. Bill Johnson does a great job of showing us what happens when we allow God’s supernatural power to work through us, and also how we can bring this kingdom reality into our lives.
