Have you ever wondered why you are living here and now in this particular place and time in history? Not only is Myles Munroe a dear friend, but someone who has greatly helped to shape my understanding of the Kingdom of God. –Matthew Crouch, CEO, Gener8Xion Entertainment Best-selling author of more than 10 life-changing books and devotionals, Dr. Myles Munroe’s series on the Kingdom of God shows how your heavenly Father wants to make the earth a place of Kingdom harmony and peace—beginning within you! You will discover things about God’s love and plan, such as how:

  • Your destiny will be fulfilled right here on earth.
  • You are created to turn the earth into a place filled with His culture!
  • You can enjoy continuous fellowship with the Lord.

    The Gospel Message ¿ An Alternative to the Confusion, Disillusionment and Distrust of World Politics, Religions, and the Failure of Today¿s Economic Systems

    Dr. Myles Munroe, internationally known author, lecturer, Bible teacher, and leadership mentor, tackles the questions being asked by people around the world, “Why Am I here?” and “What is the purpose of my existence?” “Reclaiming God’s Original Purpose for Your Life” is divided into two parts. Part one introduces “God’s Big Idea” in a 40 day reading format made up of illustrations, stories, and instruction which take the reader back to the Garden of Eden to rediscover God’s purpose and plan for his kingdom, for man, culture, community, worship, and service. Part two provides the reader the opportunity to journal personal responses to each of the 40 day readings. The journal includes a relevant scripture, excerpts from the book, questions and ideas for consideration and reflection and a meditation which will prompt additional introspection and action. Dr. Munroe’s writing is filled with powerful principles for life based on scriptural foundations incorporated in his own philosophy, lifestyle, and personal experiences. “God’s Big Idea” is a book for everyone seeking to know God in a deeper more intimate relationship while reclaiming their own destiny. A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
