Overview

Don't wait until tomorrow for the life you want today. Dr. Creflo A. Dollar illuminates eight steps to the magnificent life you crave!

Confidence, peace, and abundant life--we all long for these things. In this life-changing book, author and renowned pastor Dr. Creflo A. Dollar challenges readers to stop wishing for a satisfying life. Instead, Dr. Dollar proclaims, we should be claiming the success that God promises today. We do not have to be defined by past failures or mediocrity; we must move forward into the richness available to us right now. God has designed a glorious destiny for each of us, and all we have to do is take hold of it. In order to seize our destiny, each of us must be willing to radically transform our lives. "If you don't like the way you feel," says Dollar, "you've got to change the way you think." By taking manageable steps along the way, each of us can achieve life to the fullest--until it overflows.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Twenty years after founding the World Changers Church International, Dollar (Claim Your Victory Today) continues to offer advice on applying the Bible to everyday situations in pursuit of a prosperous life. Each easily digestible chapter-first broken down into a homily-esque message, followed by a recap, relevant scripture and an exercise-addresses the title's eight steps. Maintaining a natural but firm tone, Dollar vacillates between scriptural and personal experience to make his points. Those already familiar with his ministry will most likely find his suggestions relevant and helpful. However, seekers, especially those new to Christianity, may find parts of the second half of the book a bit vague when it comes to instructions such as "come up with your own confessions based on God's Word" when trying to form new habits or "memorize Scriptures so you will have ammunition to cast down ungodly thoughts" when working on self-discipline. While the advice may improve a reader's connection with God, more specific suggestions-whether of actual verses or even just how to find a certain verse-would better round out Dollar's blueprint for a godly life. (Jan. 2)

    This book is life changing!

    Reading one chapter a day has kept my faith highly enrgized at a new level and I am now reading it a second time to put the 8 steps into action. He encourages you to journalize your personal steps as you go along. The second reading is as good as the first! He makes clear that by living for God and applying his Word, doors can be opened to a very successful life. At Christmas time, I bought 3 copies and 2 CD sets to give as gifts. I prefer the book version that seems to add more depth and feels much more personal than just listening to someone else read it.

    Most Inspiring

    I have always enjoyed Dr. Dollar's preaching/teaching. However, this book has been a double blessing to me in my personal, professional and spritual life. I have been able to apply all of his teachings, which has aided me in my Christian growth. I can feel and see myself growing and becoming stronger in the Lord!
