Greater: Dream Bigger. Start Smaller. Ignite God's Vision for Your Life. Read Online Free - Are you ready to open your imagination to the possibility that God has a vision for your life that is greater?
We all have honest moments when we’re gripped by a desire to feel that what we’re doing matters more. That who we are matters more.
And according to one of the most shocking verses in the Bible, Jesus wants the very same thing for every one of us:
“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” -John 14:12
That single promise—“even greater things than these”—should be enough to shatter our acceptance of spiritual mediocrity. Unfortunately, most believers have only tried and given up on vague notions of greatness…then settled into a life that’s just good enough.
Good enough = Baseline living that is marked by mediocrity, stuck in spiritual survival mode, and controlled by complacency.
Greatness = Vague, unrealistic aspirations of doing better that don’t work in real life and lead to endless frustration.
But there is a third way.
Greater = The life-altering understanding that God is ready to accomplish a greatness in your life that is entirely out of human reach—beyond anything you see in yourself on your best day, but exactly what God has seen in you all along.
In Greater, Pastor Steven Furtick draws on the biblical story of Elisha to empower you to:
• Take a God-given dream from idea to reality
• Stretch your limited resources and abilities in ways you never thought possible
• Replace the images of yourself that keep you feeling stuck in the past
• Make a significant impact with your life starting today, rather than making endless plans for tomorrow that you never get around to
If you’re tired of being ordinary, it’s time to dream bigger. If you’re feeling overwhelmed about where to begin, it’s time to start smaller. It’s time to ignite God’s Greater vision for your life.

2 out of 5 Stars
Author: Steven Furtick
Reading Level: Leisure
I haven’t read Furtick’s other book but everything I heard was either unbridled praise or scorn. I don’t know if Greater deserves either of those extremes. I found some portions of the book helpful but most of it was...

This book, for me, was about a 4 star rating.
I really liked what Furtick had to say. And it helps a lot that he's a pretty funny guy.
It makes a lot of sense, what Furtick had to say about God's plans for our lives. We are destined for greater things than we could ever imagine through Christ. Bu...

In Greater, Steven Furtick provided clarity on believing that Christians will do greater things for God’s kingdom through the power of Jesus. God wants us to be willing to assist the wounded and the hurting. Steven Furtick encouraged readers to not settle for mediocrity living but to achieve and...

In his most recent book, Greater, Steven Furtick draws from both modern illustrations and the biblical story of Elisha to encourage believers against wasting their lives on lesser things. By placing their faith in God, he argues, they will achieve things beyond “good enough,” beyond the “vague an...

I requested this book and when I got it I was extremely excited...my first review! a North Carolina author! and many of my colleagues had talked about this book. Then I took my academic approach and childhood, as well as college, memories of bible studies and checked the back of the book. It show...

This book is about how God wants us to pursue the Greater life and God-given dreams He has called us to. Through the story of the Old Testament prophet Elisha, Pastor Furtick explores how Elisha’s faith in God enabled him to not only fulfill the work that God wanted him to do but also created the...

Greater – Steven Furtick
This has been a difficult book to read. Not having read his previous book, and not really knowing who Steven Furtick is (pastor of a church is all I initially knew) I decided to do some research into the author.
As with many of this type of book, it starts off slow and pick...

Should be a classic. Vision-inducing and full of faith. Takes you from mediocrity to excellence. This one will get you moving!

This book far exceeded my expectations in what I learned, and how I felt at it’s conclusion.
I have seen the Pastor’s ministry on tv, and for me, the passionate (aka yelling) sermons are hard to endure - this book is nothing like that. Only the Pastor’s heart for Jesus comes through in...
