Sun Stand Still

What Happens When You Dare to Ask God for the Impossible

Steven Furtick

About Sun Stand Still

If you're not daring to believe God for the impossible, you may be sleeping through some of the best parts of your Christian Life.
 
This book is not a Snuggie. The words on these pages will not go down like Ambien. I’m not writing to calm or coddle you. With God’s help, I intend to incite a riot in your mind. Trip your breakers and turn out the lights in your favorite hiding places of insecurity and fear. Then flip the switch back on so that God’s truth can illuminate the divine destiny that may have been lying dormant inside you for years. In short, I’m out to activate your audacious faith. To inspire you to ask God for the impossible. And in the process, to reconnect you with your God-sized purpose and potential.
—STEVEN FURTICK, from Sun Stand Still

“Steven Furtick challenges all of us—from the missionary in the third world to the family in the suburbs—to believe God for the impossible and begin living a life of faith beyond the ordinary.”
—ANDY STANLEY, senior pastor, North Point Community Church

“I don’t know anyone better positioned to challenge you to rise above mundane living and embrace faith-filled audacity than Steven Furtick.”
CRAIG GROESCHEL, senior pastor, LifeChurch.tv

“For too long Christians have embraced a miniscule vision of faith.… Steven Furtick reminds us that the God who accomplished the impossible through the great heroes of faith still desires to do the same through us today.”
—JENTEZEN FRANKLIN, senior pastor, Free Chapel

“This book will show you that your hopes and expectations are truly just the beginning of what God can do.” 
—ED YOUNG, senior pastor, Fellowship Church

I read this book at a time when I was hard pressed, highly motivated, and taking on the biggest challenge of my life. It was a steroid for me. I like people who dance on the edges and are willing to take body blows from the corduroy clad masses of hyper conservatism. Here is the catch. I failed. I failed big. I wasn't able to pull off the giant success I had envisioned. Most would look back on these pages with contempt or anger,...

Story Line: The tag line for "Sun Stands Still" reads, "What happens when you dare to ask God for the impossible?" It's...

I received this book to review over a year ago and have been slow to post a review of it. It might be because I am lazy, but it is also because I have read it multiple times. I have devoured it's content and even discussed it in a small group that I lead. This is one amazing book derived around the story in the bible where the sun actual did stand still because God responded to an audacious prayer. I have learned a lot through reading...

Despite the fact that I am somewhat of a Steven Furtick follower (in that I regularly listen to his church's sermon podcasts online) I initially read Sun Stand Still with a negative eye. I think I saw his repeated mentions in his sermons leading up to the book's release as self promoting, and I worried that the book might go to his head. None of that killed my curiosity to actually read the book, mind you, so I made it a review choice. The...
