Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"I want you to experience the favor of God. I want you to know that, with God's help, you can transform your world, no matter what your situation."--Bishop Jackson

Whenever good news is slow in coming, when bad circumstances don't seem to improve, when we feel forsaken and powerless, we long for change. And change can be yours. In these pages, Bishop Harry R. Jackson Jr., from the forge of his own experience, reveals a six-step pathway for restoration and transformation that has been proven time and again, based on unfailing principles set down in God's Word. He shows you how to
· open the floodgates of divine grace
· draw closer to Christ
· grow in trust, love, endurance, faithfulness and personal purity
· experience the favor of God


Life will always throw obstacles in the way. But you can draw on the transforming power of God's mercy and grace to rise above your circumstances, discover your destiny and find lasting change and blessing.

"In today's fractured world, it's more difficult than ever to become all that God wants us to be. But, it is possible. In Bishop Jackso''s newest book, he provides a detailed six-step program to explore these six areas of concern--humility, trust, love, faithfulness, endurance, and purity--and the role each of them can play in your life." --CBA Retailers+Resources

By Michael Taylor TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 6, 2013
Format: Paperback
"You Were Born For More" by Harry Jackson is a good title for anyone needing encouragement in their difficult situation. The pastor writes from his own personal struggles (health, ministry, financial, etc.) and suggests 6 steps we can take to overcome our challenges:

1. Having a humble spirit - be thankful for who God is and realize that apart from Him, we have no hope.
2. Trusting God - He is God and can be trusted to help us persevere.
3. Show God's love to others - display the love that God has shown you to other people for His glory. It's all about Him!
4. Endure in adversity - God gives us His strength and life to give us what we need to persevere.
5. Remain faithful to God even in uncertain times - God can be trusted. Remember His past faithfulness to give you a present and future hope.
6. Commit to purity - no matter what happens commit be pure to God (make Him the priority in your life, let Him help you live a pure life pleasing to Him).

These are just some highlights for each area - you will need to read the book for more details.

A good and encouraging read. Recommended.

In a world where many are lost, wondering, and searching for something - knowing you were born for more than "just this " is such a powerful message that so many need to read. I love what Bishop says in the book - "The power to break through your problems and realms of blessing is within reach- but it requires an open and honest relationship between you and God." So- get honest! I have been saved for 27 years, but the reminder that I was born for more never gets old. Just when we think we've got it - God takes us deeper. He takes us closer to Him, but it is a relationship that works both ways.

When facing tough circumstances, knowing that I was serving Jesus Christ and operating in exactly what He called me to do made those rough moments, smooth. Not perfect - but smooth. My relationship with God is what is made the difference. I knew I was born for more. Bishop Jackson's life testifies to exactly what he has written. This is a MUST READ for anyone who is searching for more. Why? Because you were born for it!!!!!

You were Born for More - is a powerful presentation that instills courage.
Life is filled with obstacles to achieving all you can be. In this book six simple but profound steps will
renew your journey to matching God's vision for your life. I read it one setting. The stories are
engaging and meaningful. This would make a great book for a study group, a great sermons illustration book, and a book for those facing discouragement and fear.

I have an interesting history with this book. When I received the e-mail from the publisher asking me if I wanted to review it, I looked at the synopsis and thought that it looked really good but that I already had an overloaded reading schedule. I decided to pass, and thought, "If God wants me to read this book, He will give me another opportunity someday." The very next day was another e-mail from the Chosen, saying there had been an error on the original sign-up form and anyone interested needed to sign up again. I didn't need to be asked a third time; I decided this was God saying that He did indeed want me to read this book.

By the time "You Were Born for More" arrived in my mailbox, I'd learned Chosen specialized in books with charismatic leanings, and I have several differences of doctrine with the "health and wealth" message that often comes in such books. That was discouraging, and I also let a few other things stand in the way of picking it up. Then December rolled around and I wanted to honor my commitment to Chosen and finish this before the end of the year, so I set into it. I should never have second guessed! God directed me to this book, and it's one whose insight I am going to be remembering for a long time.

Bishop Jackson is a pastor in the Washington, D.C, area, who also has found himself with opportunity to be a religious voice in the media. This book relies on his personal experience from his fight with cancer, and a straightforward writing style, using strong words such as: "Sometimes the change we are praying for may need to start with a change in us" (pg. 114), and "...We only overcome adversity, heartache, and fear when we put God first in our lives" (pg. 166).

The Bible tells us stories of individuals who were thrown in deep pits or dark caves where, sometimes, they were sealed in and, certainly, left alone. Ever feel as though you are in a place like that, cut off and alone? What's worse is that you feel that God has left you! Bishop Jackson has written this book for you to tell you from his own experiences that these days are limited and you will come out and that God is still with you. Matter of fact He wants you to succeed.
