Greater is about easing up and giving fate the keys to the car. As I read the book I thought of how God is a metaphor for the universe. Things aren't always going to be in your control and at times you have to approach achieving success as through a gambler's perspective.

One thing I didn't like was the order of how a couple of the concepts were presented. Near the beginning of the book, Furtick writes about how you may or may not need to leave your current job to follow the path God has set out for you. Only after does he discuss how we already have everything we need to be successful, which left me confused. I think when you give people the choice of doing something risky such as leaving their job or staying put, they're most likely going to stick with the status quo and not rock the boat. It's just too easy to stick to what you know. It would have been better to say that if you don't feel like you're doing what you were put on this earth to do then start changing some things up. If small changes don't lead you anywhere then you may very well have to make a significant change like quitting your job in order to flourish.

I think the problem with religious individuals not taking risks is an issue that comes with religious territory. Instead of worshiping God, I feel as if too many people worship the book based on Him. Like Steven's message, I believe that once you put faith in a loving God and stop fretting about the details, things fall into place.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
