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.

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.

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!

This book compares our lives today with the lives of the Israelites, wandering in the wilderness. The book is easy to read, and it showed me a way of viewing incidents in my life that is different from what I've been used to . I loved it.

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.
