Format: Paperback
Has something that you needed but did not ask for drop into your lap unexpectedly? This happened to me with Priscilla Shirer's new book, One in a Million: Journey to Your Promised Land. It is without a doubt one of those books that touches your inner fibers so profoundly that you will consider it a landmark in your spiritual journey. The kind that gives you goose bumps when you are reading it because you think it was written especially for you.

Shirer uses the biblical narrative of Exodus 1 to teach us that abundant life can be achieved in our daily living. Experiencing God's power in our lives every day and not just on Sundays is the crux of this book. The author invites us on a spiritual journey paralleling the Israelites own physical journey out of Egypt, through the wilderness and stationed at the threshold of the Promised Land. That is where the decision is made to become that one-in-a-million who enters the land.

The Promised Land is the place where we experience the fullness of what God has to offer us no matter what the cost to getting there is. It is an invitation to step into our inheritance and live the destiny God has ordained for us. It is also a call that requires courage and patience, as we leave our past behind and wait in the wilderness while trusting in God's sustenance. It will require determination to enter into a life of power, joy and peace.

Shirer's writing style is conversational yet clever and full of spiritual gems. The book is a perfect balance of expository teaching and personal anecdotes that bring bible truths to life. It is a must-read if what you truly desire and seek is to be one of the few who will not settle for less than a deeper and more intimate relationship with God.

I used this book for a bible study and our group really enjoyed it. Priscilla is a good writer, and she manages to make you comfortable with her right away. While it's an 'easy' read (flows easily, story telling style) , it contains powerful truths. I've gone to church all my life and don't remember anyone ever explaining why the Isralites wandered in the desert for 40 years. Her explanations and how to be the one in a million is inspiring. This will be a book I will be re-reading and having recommended it to several of my friends.

Asking around for recommendations of authors, Priscilla Shirer was suggested. I love to read but I struggled through the first 20 percent of this book and gave up. You may like her,but she isn't my style of author. She seems too "girly" for lack of a better description. The title caught my attention but got lost trying to understand where she was going.

I heard the author speak at my church and was so moved by her message that I wanted to hear more from her. This book which tells the story of how she was led to a greater walk with God is amazing and inspirational. This is the first book I've ever purchased by Priscilla Shirer but I am so glad I have it now and look forward to reading more of her work.

A great study for women of any age. Priscilla Shirer illustrates from her own life the journey for inimate fellowship and direction from God. She challenges her readers to aspire to abundant living with scripture and life experiences. An easy read that WILL keep your attention and give amazing insights to draw from.

I saw this author on Joyce Meyer and loved listening to her. She is an excellent teacher and if you want to grow in your Christian experience I would highly recommend this book. She shared testimonies about the experiences she has gone through with the Lord and encourages you if you want to be closer to the Lord read the book, if you don't want to walk closer to the Lord you would not like the book. Personally, I just started reading it but it is hard to put down!

Format: Paperback
She has some worthwhile goals. She works to the end that the Christian life is not just about knowledge (p. 10) and she wants the Christian faith to leave the pew and be lived out on the street (p. 12). She understands sanctification (p. 18). She emphasizes obedience before experience (p. 142), a theme which is not heard often enough. These are admirable goals.
But it is also disappointing. Shirer's definition of the "abundant life" revolves around the things that God can do for me - answer my prayers and give me neat things (p. 9). She uses the OT metaphorically (the Hebrews had their wilderness, what is your wilderness? rather than typologically or other appropriate method). She reduces the Christian life to the existential and does so at the expense of an intelligent faith (p. 38).

That last point is my biggest concern. It is the way that so much material is framed today - faith v. knowledge. While some, like Sproul, make the mistake of defining faith as knowledge, this represents the opposite error. For Shirer faith exists exclusive of knowledge. So she appeals to the "abundant experiences" for "those who abandon themselves to belief." This represents a dangerous way of thinking.

Now, I'm not a stickler for systematic uniformity. That is, I do not think that all the teachers need to be Calvinists or that everyone's eschatology must be dispensational. But I do think that the pop approach to spirituality that is one step away from word-faith, name-it/claim-it, self-centered theology is dangerous.

So what is missing? It is missing call for functional commitment. Her call for obedience has no legs. There is no commitment to serve. Not to serve each other. Not to serve the local church.
