God has blessed each one of us with unique gifts and talents that are designed to grow and develop for our benefit. These qualities are planted like seeds within us and God's plan is for them to mature and produce abundant fruit in our lives, much like grapes in a vineyard. In this insightful book, #1 New York Times bestselling author, T.D. Jakes explores the hidden mysteries of our maturation process--he identifies the search for divine direction, the steps to achieving our destiny, and how we must be crushed like grapes, via detours and setbacks, before we can reach our full potential. It's all part of God's plan.
THE CRUSHING IS NOT THE END is full of stories from Bishop Jakes' personal journey and from those who have crossed his path, and the result is an insightful work that will help us fulfill the promise and potential of the seeds within.
