About the Author

Andy Stanley is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary and the founder of North Point Ministries. He serves as pastor of North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Georgia, with a congregation of more than 12,000, as well as Buckhead Church in Atlanta, Georgia, with more than 3,000 attendees. Andy is the bestselling author of The Next Generation Leader, The Best Question Ever, and How Good Is Good Enough? Andy and his wife, Sandra, have two sons and a daughter.

From AudioFile

Based on Ephesians 2:10--"For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works"--Stanley's book asserts we are all products of God's vision. He credits moral authority--that is, behavior beyond reproach--with providing us the strength to see our visions through despite sacrifices and possible ridicule. Stanley's voice is sincere, and his self-deprecating humor, especially about his poor academic performance, lends the production a comfortable tone. He is persuasive, reading his script steadily with a Southern accent. This is a humbling and noteworthy book.

Visioneering: God's Blueprint for Developing and Maintaining Personal Vision
by Andy Stanley

This is essentially the paper-pack version of the author's earlier hard-back book bearing the same title. My copy of the hard-back was published in 2001.

With due respect & from a secular standpoint, - subtracting all the religious connotations in the book -, I want to say that this book is still a reasonably good book on personal strategic planning.

In particular, I like the author's definition & point of view: "Vision is a preferred future. A destination. Vision always stands in contrast to the world as it is. Visioneering is a clear mental picture of what could be, fueled by the conviction that it should be."

Also, among the eighteen chapters, Chapter 13: 'Moral Authority' is certainly an interesting chapter to read, as it is a material departure from most, if not all, visioning or visioneering books!

I reckon this book will appeal more to those readers with a Christian background. I had originally bought this book without realising it (in reality, I had overlooked the secondary title on the book cover), but I have no regrets.

Quite frankly, "Visioneering" by Andy Stanley is the best book I have ever read on the topic of vision. George Barna wrote a good book a number of years ago entitled "The Power of Vision", however, his title is targeted more for the church leader.

Stanley's book, on the other hand, is geared towards any Christian who wants to have a vision for his or her life.

The narrative flows freely and is an excellent read. Stanley focuses on the biblical character of Nehemiah to draw parallels between what he faced and what we can face today when searching for a vision for our lives.

Among the topics covered include:

1. Praying and planning about the vision God has for you.
2. How faith is an important part of vision.
3. The price of having a vision.
4. Obstacles you face in your vision.
5. The importance of having moral authority.
6. Distractions you will face.
7. Maintaining your course when pursuing the vision God has for you.

I highly recommend the book to any Christian who wants to get out of their comfort zone and wants to pursue God's best for his or her life.

Read and enjoy!

Andy Stanley in true fashion to previous work has shown why he is a great communicator. In the book he uses simple, easy to follow methods that can be used by anyone at any age. Vision is a tough subject to convey to readers. You will usually blind your readers with theories and methods that either consume to much time or require far to many assets to be practical in every day use. Andy, using God's word and blueprint spelled out in the Bible clearly gives a step by step method of what works, and certainly things that will fail. I will be reading this text again in a few weeks. So simple in approach. So rich in quality and quantity of material.

Why at times does it take us so long to catch a vision for what the Lord has for us. Perhaps it's because we don't take the time to sit back and hear what the Lord has planned. Andy Stanley brings a perspective into the life of Nehemiah than none before him, minus the Bible of course.
Nehemiah learned of the fall of his people and the mighty wall of Jerusalem. He was a cupbearer to a King and sought his permission to go and rebuild his city. He was granted that mission and he left with the resources of his King to give vision to the people of his kingdom.
Andy Stanley walks through Nehemiah's story as he follows the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem. Nehemiah finds a group of people struggling with no vision and gives them purpose and a vision. Nehemiah pushes the people past their fears and insecurities and redefines their purpose to work together. Stanley breaks down the steps of instilling vision and leading people through it. He not only gives personal experiences but walks through Nehemiah and ties it together to how we can use it in our personal lives.
If you are struggling with a plan for your life or for your ministry/career this book wil help you create the steps you will need to succeed. Preparing for your life and for your career is something that few people do. We all have the tendency to react to comes at us on a daily basis. If you have no vision to fall back upon, you will spend your days running around aimlessly as the people of Jerusalem did before Nehemiah arrived.

As a Pastor I have read so many books on leadership and vision I stay away ordinarily but I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a 101 course on visionary leadership based on Nehemiah (which makes this book an inspiring Bible study for anyone). It is written in a way that makes you feel the authors sincerity and warmth. Very encouraging and inspiring. I thought the stuff on naysayers was very insightful. Couldn't put it down until I was finished with it.

I have read this book 3 times now. It is a great book for those that have a vision but aren't quite sure how to put it into practice. It is really a step by step guide on how to create, and do the vision you have.
