Lift Your Vision High

Vision is a preferred future. A destination. Vision always stands in contrast to the world as it is. Visioneering, according to bestselling author Andy Stanley, is “a clear mental picture of what could be, fueled by the conviction that it should be.” With warm, down-to-earth practicality, Andy Stanley explores the ordinary life of Nehemiah and his God-given vision for accomplishing the extraordinary. He shows how the life of this great ancient visionary, determined to rebuild the ruined walls of Jerusalem, reveals principles that can prepare us to find and follow God’s multifaceted vision for our own lives. Now this bestseller is again available in an attractive, affordable paperback!

Everybody ends up somewhere in life.
You can end up somewhere on purpose!

Visioneering is the engineering of a vision. It’s the process one follows to develop and maintain vision. “Vision,” writes Andy Stanley , “is a clear mental picture of what could be, fueled by the conviction that it should be.”

In the bestselling Visioneering, Stanley builds a compelling case for the necessity of a clear, God-ordained vision for each of the roles of your life. Whether you’re a parent with a vision for your children or a CEO pursuing a corporate vision, Visioneering is the perfect tool to help you develop and maintain God’s unique purpose for your life.

“Visioneering is the best book on vision I’ve seen. It will put you on track to discovering God’s purpose for your life. In my course “The Vision of the Leader,” I quote from Andy’s book more than any other. Visioneering should be on the bookshelf of every pastor, business leader, and parent in America . I heartily endorse it!”
—Dr. Bruce Wilkinson, Chairman, Dream for Africa

Story Behind the Book

Andy Stanley, the pastor of more than 15,000, knows a lot of people, and is well aware of the overwhelming and mutual desire nearly every Christian holds to find and fulfill God’s purpose for their lives. This book was written to stir these hearts and move people forward by providing tangible steps to getting from Point A to Point B. “As Christians,” states Stanley, “we do not have a right to take our talents, abilities, experiences, opportunities, and education and run off in any direction we please.” This book was written to provide a specific plan for going in the right direction. It truly is “God’s blueprint for developing and maintaining personal vision.”

Visioneering is a book that I would recommend for anyone that has a desire to make what "could be", "should be" according to the Word and the Heart of God. It challenges your morale and integrity by making sure that you are in line with God's word before pursuing after your vision. Visioneering helps you to remain focused on the end result "GOD". It encourages you by letting you know that any vision that is a God vision will be met with difficulties and challenges that may seem impossible to face, but if you have the attitude like Nehemiah and tell your challenges "I can't come down until I am done" the end result will be worth the wait.
I encourage any business owner just starting out, or, for the owner that has been in existence a few years, and has decided to revamp, to keep this book as the "Bible", "Source", or "Business Plan" to a successful running operation. I was truly blessed and inspired to keep on with the vision that the Lord has placed within me! There were times when I wanted to give up but Andy's book gave me a new perspective on how to approach and handle what God allows in pressing to the end. Thank You so Very Much....

I love how Andy Standley keeps it simple and in a way the average person can understand. This book does just that. Andy gave me some very thought provoking ideas so I can improve my Chriatian walk. This is book is very inspiring and will definitely help you with a vision for your life. This book helps you align your vision with God's vision and for me that is very important. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that try to understand God's vision for their life.

Visioneering was a great novel! It was so inspiring and encouraging in many ways concerning the vision God has placed in my heart! Andy used the story of Nehemiah as well as some personal stories to show that a God-given vision can go from what it could be to should be. It won't happen though some random miracle, but as Andy points out through the telling of Nehemiah's vision being fulfilled that it's faith, trust in God, and hard work. The task might seem very daunting at times, but that doesn't mean we should give up! We all are going to end somewhere in life as Andy shows so why not be somewhere on purpose! There was great advice on vision casting and to never loose sight or give up on having your vision fulfilled! Just throughout the entire novel itself there were great tips, advice, and eye opening questions that help one's vision happen and give glory to God along the way as well as praising God for having the vision be as it "should be." One thing I want to mention that really threw me off in the beginning is that he writes what I feel is the way he talks. I am not use to this kind of style and it took a little getting use too, but once I got into it I wouldn't change the novel in any kind of way! If your looking for a novel concerning your vision and everything surrounding of how to fulfill it, then look no further because this book will give you tons of information as well as inspire you!

Andy Stanley deals with the real issue of vision for Christians. It should never be something we conceived, but about God's plan for us to go forth and fulfill.  I like the fact that he looks at the life of Nehemiah and his progression of rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem. As Stanley examined his life, he presented key points for the reader to Grasp in their own life as they are obedient in their own vision. The keys were not a "how to" formula but about milestones as we move forward to seeing the vision fulfilled and God's will glorified in us. I highly recommend this book for all who are seeking God's will in their life. This book is a must read in this subject matter. This review is given as a fulfillment to agreement with the publisher for a free eBook.

This book does a great job of explaining the importance of developing, and sticking to your vision. The book is based on the story of Nehemiah. Nehemiah had a difficult vision to fulfill, but with God's favor and a dedicated team , he was able to see a difficult task become a reality. This book was very inspiring as well as informational
