Overview

Jim Cymbala knows something a lot of us miss--that a comfortable, secure life won’t produce the satisfaction we long for. How could we feel fulfilled by missing out on the life God has for us? Whether life seems good or not right now, Jim Cymbala believes that God has more for you. In this new book, he’ll help you find out how to access the “more” God intends—more peace, real joy, and a deep sense of purpose. As you open yourself to the “more” of God, you will also discover your unique work assignment—the one thing God is calling you--and no one else--to accomplish for the sake of his work in the world. You Were Made for More draws a compelling picture of people just like you who are finding that “more of God” means more influence, more energy, and ultimately more happiness. It will help you picture what your own “land of milk and honey” might look like—the fuller, richer spiritual place you long to be. Using examples from the Bible, contemporary stories, and experiences from his own life, Jim Cymbala points the way to a richer, deeper life, helping you take hold of everything God wants to give.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Using the style of extemporaneous sermons, Cymbala, longtime pastor of the Brooklyn Tabernacle and author of Fresh Faith, brings a message of inspiration to readers. God, Cymbala says, wants more for Christians than rote religion or an empty life. The book is dotted with anecdotes of real people who overcame obstacles of poverty and drug addiction by a newfound commitment to Jesus; used their money and skills to support the church; or gave up the security of good jobs to serve others. As such, it will likely encourage some Christians facing life challenges. Although the associations often seem forced and the book's trajectory is unclear, Cymbala's use of biblical texts (particularly from Joshua, Judges and Ruth) serve their contemporary purpose. What the book lacks in unity, it makes up for in passion. Cymbala's confidence about defining the nature and wishes of God will not suit every reader, but his commitment to promoting generosity and well-being through the church yields gems of encouragement for people seeking stability and direction.

    The only 'More' you will get here is More BaaBaa

    Forgive me for my Rating, they did not have anything lower than a 1. What a waste of paper. This book has no substance. Just another 'how can I Get more from God' self help book. It is this self centered, self serving, Christianity that is thriving in our country and Cymbala has jumped on the wagon. Not to mention the fact that some of the stories in this book are well known and documented as a being completely false. He used a life of one of his members who has been struggling for years with drugs and depression. In the book he makes her out be a Spiritual Giant when infact she has consistenly stuggled with drugs and depression. What a disgrace. So you can waste your money purchasing this book. Suggestion: Do not buy this book but instead give that money to missions. It will go much farther and serve a much grater need like filling the stomachs of hungry children instead of filling the pockets of hungry preachers.

    You were made for Prosperity

    After reading this book I came to the conclusion that the author missed it big time. Mr. Cymbala has fallen far from his first book Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire. This book sounds like a broken record of the previous books by Cymbala. I guess when you have nothing new to say you keep saying the same old thing.

    Spiritually Shallow

    Read Cymbala's new book and was very disappointed. It is almost like a bunch of excerpts from all of his other books. He really has nothing new to say and is basically saying the same things over and over. But this book fits in perfectly with all of the other shallow Christian books that are filling Christian Bookstore shelves. It seems that the church is incapable of digesting solid food and it shows by these types of authors writing very shallow books.

    a clear voice

    I would call Jim Cymbala's books more of "encouragement" than anything else. His books speak with a clear voice about Christianity 101, what really matters; in this case, finding one's purpose in God's master plan and doing it; whatever it may be. Mr. Cymbala does something particularly well, and that is summing up Bible concepts into clear work-a-day guidlines that are easily understood and assimilated into actual life. You don't need all of Jim Cymbala's books, you need one or two that focus on the areas you might struggle with. I would recommend Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire, and if you know someone who is struggling with finding their place in the kingdom or perhaps with bitterness, then this would be a good gift to help clear the air of confusion. After reading Jim's books I always feel encouraged and ready to listen for that "still, small voice" that will refocus my walk with God.

    I thought we were made for God's Glory not our own?

    This book creates a deep hunger in believers to go for the gusto in Christ. To leave the mundane life behind and do GREAT THINGS for God, then leaves them with a sense of despair and worthlessness for those who realize that this is not the case for every believer. This teaching focuses on what we can do for Christ and what Great things we can do for the Kingdom, big names, big ministries, big choirs, big churches, but says nothing of what Christ did for us. I am not so sure that God is necessarily interested in us doing BIG things for him. I believe He is more interested in the majority of us to start doing the little things like, wash the dishes, take out the trash, treat your wife or husband with he same mercy God shows you, spend time with your children, spend time getting to know your neighbor, be faithful on your job. So many are so caught up in numbers and BIGNESS they forget to live in the NOW and act like Christ. <BR/><BR/>People are hungry for MORE OF JESUS not MORE WORK FOR JESUS. People are tired of the BIG TESTIMONIES, the Parading of Christians on Stage and DVD's as some sort of Celebrity Christian Club. Those who get caught up in being propped up as a "TROPHY OF GRACE" are in for a big disappointment. They are promised GREAT THINGS! GOD HAS GREAT THINGS FOR YOU. Then they have to go home and wash the dishes and take out the trash and change diapers. Many have struggled after the lights dim down and are left with their normal life. Some have fallen into great depression and even questioned their faith. This type of ministry is very dangerous because it produces unrealistic expectations for the believer. <BR/><BR/>Most of the world is not affected by BIG MINISTRY, but by loving neighbors and coworkers. The book fails in that it creates a false hunger to get MORE FROM GOD and never teaches the believer what he already has. The dramatic stories are sadly just that, dramatic. Most of those who stories have been told in this BIG fashion have struggled afterwards to maintain their Super Christian status that this has created and feel depressed. Instead of being taught at a young age in their walk that we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in CHRIST and we already have all that we need. We are teaching them to do GREAT THINGS FOR GOD. Most do not even understand what Christ has really done and what blessings they already have and are pushed to go for the GUSTO. To quote the words of Jeremiah and I paraphrase ¿If you cannot walk with the foot soldiers, how will you run with the horses?¿ But that is what we are doing, creating people who are learning to run before they can walk spiritually. They base their worth on their BIGNESS and BUSINESS for God and not on God¿s love and Christ¿s work that he completed. It is not the leadership¿s goal, but nevertheless, this creates a class system in the church. Those who are work-a-holics are considered "godly" and "the real deal" and those who take time out to spend with their family and children, or have other responsibilities outside the four walls of the church are questioned about their commitment and are outside the "circle of the faithful". You were made for Christ. Are you loving your neighbors, or are you stepping over them to get a POSITION OF BIGNESS in the Kingdom. The greatest in the Kingdom will be servant of all.
