Book Description

When we settle for our own dreams, we settle for too little. God promises "to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine" in each of our lives (Eph. 3:20, NIV). John Avant shares true stories of God's passion touching lives around the world and helps readers discern God's dreams for themselves - challenging them to put an end to boring living. As readers see God's passionate adventure lived out all around them every day, they'll eagerly accept His invitation to be a part of it - to live a life beyond their imagination!

5.0 out of 5 stars What A Promise! May 19, 2004
Format:Paperback
Dr. Avant does an excellent job communicating the excitement and fulfillment found in living your life the way God planned. Real life stories illustrate in an easy to read way, just how creative God is when we allow Him to lead. A very encouraging and uplifting book for the days in which we live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Here's the life God INTENDS for us to lead! May 18, 2004
By D. B.
Format:Paperback
If you're wondering what "life is all about", you need to read this book! John Avant's writing style lends itself to be an easy read that you cannot put down. He does a great job of using scripture to counter the notion that living "the Christian life" means giving up all the fun and excitement you'd experience otherwise. On the contrary, Avant shares personal examples and illustrations of the incredibly exciting life that God intends for us to lead, with HIM at the center. No longer will you think that living a life for God means obeying a bunch of rules and watching the excitement from the sideline; God wants to give us more than we can ever ask or imagine. This book will ignite in you the desire for this "Passion Promise"....it did for me!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspiring and fun read May 20, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
As a stay-at-home mom, I highly recommend this book. Whether on the mission field in southeast Asia or on the mission field of raising children, The Passion Promise challenges us to fulfill our ministry and live our lives with passion. Dr. Avant includes plenty of personal stories and examples of God doing "exceedingly abundantly more than we can imagine", which makes this a fast, interesting read. I loved it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read May 24, 2004
Format:Paperback
I'm presently deployed in support of OPERAION IRAQI FREEDOM as the Commander of a UH-60 Blackhawk Army Aviation Battalion. Reading John's book, the Passion Promise, is like receiving encouraging words from a dear friend coaching me to persevere. John has reminded me that no matter what the circumstance we find our selves in, God has planned those events and He has a great adventure awaiting us daily if we will just open our spiritual eyes to it! I find myself picking up the Passion Promise to reread sections of it again and again. Thanks John for putting your Holy Spirit inspired thoughts into print for the rest of us to benefit from.
