About Seven-Mile Miracle
It’s Good Friday. The Son of God is giving up his life. What does he want to say to us in His final hours? What does He tell the people standing at the foot of the cross, to pass down to the ages? He speaks only seven short statements. Words of forgiveness, salvation, relationship, abandonment, distress, triumph, and reunion. Seven statements that mean everything.
In Seven-Mile Miracle, Pastor Steven Furtick shows us how Jesus’s last words offer mile markers for our journey in relationship with God. It’s a lifelong journey and it’s not always easy. But Jesus is both our guide and our destination as we travel.
Includes questions for reflection and a forty-day reading guide to Jesus’s death and resurrection.
A Proven Path for Spiritual Growth
From time to time we all feel stuck in our relationship with God and frustrated by life’s setbacks. Jesus faced what could have been the ultimate defeat on the cross. Yet he emerged triumphant through his relationship with his heavenly Father. And he showed us the way so that we could do the same.
In Seven-Mile Miracle, Steven Furtick explores how Jesus’s seven last statements on the cross offer a proven spiritual growth path for us. You will experience the Easter message more personally than ever before as you engage the words of forgiveness, salvation, relationship, abandonment, distress, triumph, reunion.
After all, we are not simply believers—people who have put our faith in Jesus. We are not simply disciples—pupils who learn from him. We are called to be followers of Christ. This is your opportunity to follow Jesus through his death, and move forward in his resurrection power, starting now.
"Furtick's writing is approachable and accessible, but also offers deep insight into Scriptural truths. Whether you're looking for a compelling Easter read or want to grow richer in your faith at any time, the Seven-Mile Miracle is a journey worth taking."

“It’s Good Friday. He is at Calvary, the last stop of his earthly journey. The Son of God and Savior of the world is giving up his life. What is on his mind? What does he want the people standing at the foot of the cross to hear and to repeat, passing it down to the ages?” –Steven Furtick
In Seven-Mile Miracle: Journey Into the Presence of God Through the Last Words of Jesus (Multnomah, 2/28/17), New York Times best-selling author and pastor Steven Furtick takes readers on a journey to explore how Jesus’ last seven statements on the cross offer important mile markers in a believer’s relationship with God.
Readers will experience the Easter message more deeply than ever before as they engage with Jesus’ words of: forgiveness, salvation, relationship, abandonment, distress, triumph, and reunion. He says these are the mile markers on the road to our personal Easter—not just as an annual event, but as a daily experience. With his keen insight and a touch of wit, Furtick helps readers apply these powerful and life-changing words to their lives.
For instance, he addresses how Jesus experienced the pain of being abandoned by his Father when he took the entire world’s sin upon Himself at the cross. In light of this, Furtick encourages readers that, even though they may likewise feel forsaken and encounter a “dark night of the soul,” they need to fear no evil because—despite all appearances to the contrary—their heavenly Shepherd really is with them.
“Easter is proof that you can know that God is with you, even if you don’t feel his presence all the time, and in faith you can act accordingly,” he says.
The book includes questions for reflection and a forty-day reading guide to Jesus’ death and resurrection.

I thought it was unusual, but it took me awhile to get through this one. Normally, I race through the books of this author (I have read several in the past), but this one was different. However, when I finished I was truly grateful I stuck it out.Focusing on the seven final phrases of Jesus before he died, Pastor Steven parallels the phrases to the phases of the journey of those who follow Christ. He writes in a very conversational style,...
What an amazing book to read for such an important time in the Catholic year.I followed along reading his book during Easter and it brought to light all the nuances of Jesus' death and resurrection that I have missed out on through the years.Every few days I read a new section of this story. It is put together by the seven last words of Jesus before his resurrection. And can I say that it was transformative?!?!?The way that Furtick puts...
This book is amazing! It kept my attention from the beginning of the introduction page to the very last page of the book. Steven Furtick writes about the last seven statements from Jesus as He hung on the cross. Pastor Furtick writes in a way that gives us hope! He reminds us of how much Jesus loves us and how we should be living our lives in honor of Him. Seven Mile Miracle is a book that I have not shelved, I plan to read this book again...
I got this book a little before Easter and was hoping to finish it in time for Easter Sunday. It was a novel concept to me to study Jesus' last words. Unfortunately, I found this book hard to get into. I stopped somewhere in chapter 3 and only recently picked it back up again. It's written in an informal tone (sometimes unnecessarily so). And I thought the font change in between chapters was a little distracting. I'd...
