You Were Born for This by Bruce Wilkinson

Remember The Prayer of Jabez guy, Bruce Wilkinson? Well, he has a new book coming out, You Were Born for This. I just started reading it and it is fabulous. I'm loving it. If you'd like to win a copy, just leave a comment on this post.

Here's a short summary:

Anyone can do a good deed, but some good works can only happen by a direct intervention from God. Around the world these acts are called miracles—not that even religious people expect to see one any time soon. But what would happen if millions of ordinary people walked out each morning expecting God to deliver a miracle through them to a person in need? You Were Born for This starts with the dramatic premise that everyone at all times is in need of a miracle, and that God is ready to meet those needs supernaturally through ordinary people who are willing to learn the “protocol of heaven.”

In the straightforward, story-driven, highly motivating style for which he is known, Wilkinson describes how anyone can be a “Delivery Guy” from heaven in such universally significant arenas of life as finances, practical help, relationships, purpose, and spiritual growth.

You Were Born for This will change how readers see their world, and what they expect God can do through them to meet real needs. They will master seven simple tools of service, and come to say with confidence, “I want to deliver a supernatural gift from God to someone in need today—and I expect to!”

Here's a link to a video about this book. Don't forget to leave a comment. I'm giving away a copy of this book.

Melanie, this sounds like a fascinating book. I watched the video and am curious to find out about the keys to this new way of viewing miracles and being part of bringing them about.

I have found Bruce Wilkinson's books very good. This is probably another good one. Have done several Bible studies on them. Please enter me in your contest.

Melanie, just wanted you to know I've sent a couple of emails the past couple of days and keep getting messages that they aren't going through. It was just basically, don't worry about the book and congrats on a great conference.
