Item description for The Victory of Surrender by Gordon Ferguson...
Overview Surrender equals victory. No paradox is more powerful. No teaching is more needed. No life is more fulfilling. Give up your will to find God's will-and in so doing, find a relationship with God that is full of challenge and at the same time, full of peace. Gordon Ferguson explores crucial Biblical principles related to surrender, and lavishly illustrates them with real-life stories. His teaching will guide you to "let go" and find real freedom in the sovereign will of God. During a time that many are turning back to the Bible to find meaning in their lives, this book will be a beacon and a guide. Also included is a chapter-by chapter study guide, containing practical and thought-provoking questions that will help you get the most out of your reading.
Publishers Description The topic of surrender is seldom written about because it is often misunderstood. In a world in which the basic message is that you have to make sure you get all your rights, it doesn't make much sense to voluntarily surrender yourself to someone - even if that "someone" is the all-powerful, all loving God of the Universe. But the Bible brings a different message: You find your life by losing it for God.

Life changing Nov 25, 2008
It is trully a Victory for me. This book has changed my life. I Love the way the author explains everything and backs it up with scripture. I had never seen my anxiety to be faithless or being that Im not relying on God. This book taught me to let go and let God... Every time I get tempted to worry I think of this. I have to admit that I was afraid but I just did it and it worked. Now everyone asks me how I stay so calm and I smile. Since then I have been purchasing this book to many friends that need it like I did praying that it will change them like it changed my life.
Salvation Issue Aug 23, 2005
It would have taken me decades to finally start surrendering to God's providence of my life if it wasn't for this book, but God has used Gordon to help us understand one of the big three topics in the Bible. faith (surrender), love and hope. If you actually put into practice the suggestions given by this book, it works and I am here to testify it is working for me.
Gordon Ferguson writes about a topic that few disciples really desire to talk about: total surrender. Of course the Bible makes it clear that total and complete surrender is the only way to eternal life (Luke 14:25-35). But how does one truly surrender to Jesus? How do we give up everything for the kingdom of God?
This book seeks to answer those questions. Ferguson writes with conviction that total surrender is the only way to true life. Truly, the way to victory is by surrendering and not by fighting against God.
Just Be Aware... Aug 26, 2004
...this is by an author who is one of the longtime leaders of the International Churches of Christ, recognized by many experts as an abusive, cult-like church.
Fantastic Book Aug 25, 2004
I read this book soon after I became serious about my relationship with God. I am a very prideful, single mother, who has tried to keep a tight reign on my life and everything in it. I received this book as a gift and it rocked my world. Turning your life over to God is not an easy thing to do, but this book helps us to realize that if our God can create the universe, what makes you think he can't create solutions for your issues? I have seen Gordon speak and he is one of my favorite authors. The book "The Victory of Surrender" is colloquial and practical and I highly recommend it.
