About "Defying Normal"
FIND A HILL WORTH DYING ON How many of us lead lives of quiet desperation -- and don't even know it? Caught between the shifting moral landscape of our culture and a burning desire to make our lives count, too often we settle for less. God has so much more for us than conformity to the status quo -- if we will only take the necessary leap of faith. In Defying Normal, pastor Skip Heitzig offers such a challenge and provides practical, biblical advice for pursuing a life of faith and transformation in uncertain times. Drawing on the life of Daniel -- a nonconformist agent of God in a time and culture in desperate need of truth and light -- Defying Normal dares you to embrace eight God-centered traits that will help you soar above the norm and live your faith in a bold and winning way. You don't have to blend in or give in to find and fulfill your purpose and impact your world. In fact, it can happen only when you defy what is popular and rise above the crowd to to a new normal. My friend pastor Skip Heitzig has penned a book for our times. As he always does from Scripture, Skip teaches the importance of bowing before the King of Heaven. In doing so, we are strengthened to live boldly while standing in the midst of an unbelieving world. Brace yourself when you read Defying Normal, because you will find yourself Soaring above the Status Quo! -- Franklin Graham, President and CEO, Samaritan's Purse, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Fitting in is easy in our everything-goes culture, but it takes a certain kind of bravery to stand against the status quo and be different. In Defying Normal, Skip gives us the courage to look normal in the face and defy it. This is my kind of book. -- Kristen Welch, author of the blog We are THAT family and founder of Mercy House In his new book my friend and godfather pastor Skip Heitzig will teach you how to live the wild, free life 30,000 feet above the status quo that you were born to live. Normal is overrated, and the adventure that is your calling is waiting -- there's not a moment to lose! -- Levi Lusko, Pastor, Fresh Life Church, Montana, author of Through the Eyes of a Lion
