Reviews - What do customers think about The Passion Promise: Living a Life Only God Can Imagine?
Insipid Platitudes May 17, 2007
Not only is the grammar that of a high school senior, not only is the book full of tired cliches, not only does this book promote that one throw away reason and rationale in favor of faith; this book is just plain divisive. With phrases like, "You wouldn't understand unless..." or "You may call it immoral, but..." the author consistently seperates himself from his readers. Unless one is "Black" (as opposed to "black"), Christian, fundamentalist, from the inner city, poor, male, and possessing a child in the system, it is very hard to find much to sympathize with in this book
A Must Read May 24, 2004
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.
An inspiring and fun read May 20, 2004
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!
Real Christian Living May 20, 2004
This book is full of real life experiences. It is a witness to what God wants in every life that is lived as a part of the Body of Christ. You will not want to miss reading this book. It will lead you to a new level of purposeful living. It will reveal to you what God's Word, through the Apostle Paul, is offering you....a "Passion Promise" of an abundant, purposeful, exciting, and authentic Christian life.
What A Promise! May 19, 2004
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.
