Sun Stands Still by Steven Furtik
I received this book to review over a year ago and have been slow to post a review of it. It might be because I am lazy, but it is also because I have read it multiple times. I have devoured it’s content and even discussed it in a small group that I lead.
This is one amazing book derived around the story in the bible where the sun actual did stand still because God responded to an audacious prayer. I have learned a lot through reading this. I love how furtick lays out the need for us to not only dream big but pray with ferver and without ceasing. This topic was greatly needed for me for prayers for my family, ministry, work and other things. I run a multichurch prayer meeting with a friend of mine and we have been dreaming huge things for it and our community. I am now making sure to pray prayers like in this book.
My only beef with what furtick wrote is in a chapter where he discusses boring prayer. He makes a case that boring prayer is less effective and we need plead a case before God. I have thought and prayed about that a bunch and have come to the conclusion that boring is subjective. Boring to whom? I personally believe that if we come to God in prayer he is never bored, but hears and listens to everything we say to Him.
In the end that one small disagreement doesn’t mean that this book isn’t valuable because it is. Read it… act on it… teach it… and live it.
An amazing book from an inspiring pastor doing great and audacious things for God.
