NCLA Review - Author Priscilla Shirer, daughter of pastor Dr. Tony Evans, weaves the text between God’s chosen people, the Israelites, and modern day Christians in three sections: Deliverance (from our sin), Development (learning to trust God in the wilderness), and Destiny (experiencing the abundant life in Christ). Recalling the Biblical account of the Israelites’ journey from Egypt to the Promised Land, the reader is reminded that out of the original two million Israelites, only two of that generation actually entered it—Joshua and Caleb (one in a million)—because they wanted it bad enough to go for it. If we as Christians today want more than the “ho-hum Christian life as usual,” then we too have to be willing to leave things behind us that are keeping us from going where God wants to take us (living life in His abundance) yet not forgetting that there is often the “wait and trust time” in the wilderness. The appendix includes a list of many characteristics intended to help you see if you are truly experiencing the abundant life offered by Christ. Rating: 4 —ARG ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 080546476X, Paperback)

The Egyptians in Exodus 1 were intent on enslaving the Israelites, wearing them down so that God’s chosen people would become disillusioned and not live up to their destiny. Of the original two million Israelites who received God’s invitation to enter the Promised Land, only two actually entered it!

Similarly, modern day Christians often hear and understand the promises of God each Sunday morning at church but then rarely choose to experience them in everyday life. In One in a Million, Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer invites us to change that pattern for good, living beyond our circumstances and expecting to see God move in miraculous ways day after day. Without a doubt, we can find and follow God’s purpose for our journey. We can make it to the Promised Land!
