Overview


Ask anyone: “Is there something about your life that you would like to change?” and the answer will most likely be a resounding “YES!” Change is something most of us want but few of us practically achieve.

In Life Change, rising voice Jordan Easley takes a spiritual approach to the topic, walking readers through the book of Mark to highlight stories of life change in the Bible. Looking at seven miracles Jesus performed throughout that text and the people who were changed by them, Jordan shows how the power of God enables us to do what we are incapable of doing ourselves.

It may feel like the odds are stacked against us, but the good news is that change is possible, and it happens when we live out this three-step process:
A NEW HOPE: Establish an authentic relationship that inspires and sustains hope in your life.
A NEW WAY OF THINKING: As a result of that relationship, you have a new way of thinking.
A NEW WAY OF LIVING: As a result of your new way of thinking, you have a new way of living.

The very fact that he uses the gospel of Mark, the bottom line action gospel, is a good indication.

Life Change breaks down a very complicated subject into some simple stories offered in the book of Mark. Easley walks through Jesus' encounter with several individuals who were desperately in need of change in their lives. Some of them had physical needs and some of them had spiritual needs but all of them walked away healed after placing their trust in Christ. This is a great book for an individual looking to gain a basic understanding of the kind of change a life with Jesus can produce as well as a person seeking to deepen their understanding of the relationship they already have with God.
