I heartily endorse it " "--Dr. Bruce Wilkinson, Chairman, Dream for Africa" Story Behind the Book Andy Stanley, the pastor of more than 15,000, knows a lot of people, and is well aware of the overwhelming and mutual desire nearly every Christian holds to find and fulfill God's purpose for their lives. This book was written to stir these hearts and move people forward by providing tangible steps to getting from Point A to Point B. "As Christians," states Stanley, "we do not have a right to take our talents, abilities, experiences, opportunities, and education and run off in any direction we please." This book was written to provide a specific plan for going in the right direction. It truly is "God's blueprint for developing and maintaining personal vision."

Reviews - What do customers think about Visioneering (Revised & Updated)?
This Book Will Literally Change Your Life! Dec 2, 2008
In a world where a "quarter life crisis" is as common as a mid-life crisis, this book meets readers where they are. When thinking about what to do next, or what the big picture is, this book gives amazing insight into God's creative design for the future, but more specifically how we attack our dreams, hopes and visions. This is not a cheesy Christian self-help book, this is a solid, concrete book that will without a doubt change the way you look at your future. It is a must read for readers young and old. SO GOOD! Don't ask questions, just read it.
Excellent on developing vision Oct 2, 2008
Great study in the life and leadership of Nehemiah on discovering your passion, pursuing it, and staying wtih it. I strongly recommend this one if you are seeking personal or ministry vision.
Too much Cristian's Content Sep 19, 2008
If you are a one of those very devoted Cristians, then I think you will enjoy this book. I thought it there was too much Cristian's Content for someone who is a soft Cristian. Way too many stories from the bible.
Dreaming Big Apr 29, 2008
This book is a "how to" on dreaming big. Sometimes knowing where to start is the biggest hurdle in making progress and articulating the vision for your life. I appreciate Andy Stanley's efforts in this writing. Elaine Littau Author of "Nan's Journey"
Read It Twice! Apr 15, 2008
This book is amazing! I read it 5 years ago, lost my copy and reordered it to re-read as I was starting a new ministry. It's brilliant. I recommend it all the time to people who want relevent and applicable steps to following through on their visions. Fantastic! One of my all-time favorite books!
