Transformation Begins With You!

Are You Tired of Living an ordinary life? You were created to do great things! But how do you begin?

God loves you and has a unique blueprint for your life-but it's up to you to find it and live it out. Mingling contemporary stories and biblical anecdotes with practical advice, Ed Silvoso shows how God intervenes in human affairs today to transform people and nations. In these pages, you'll hear extraordinary stories about the power of God working through those who discovered their specific purpose:

  • Read about the amazing things that happened in Hawaii when secular society turned over its business and schools to God.
  • Learn how a community in Minnesota plagued by endemic crime and school problems underwent dramatic transformation after city leaders dedicated themselves to God.
  • Find out how an out-of-control prison system in Buenos Aires totally reversed its course by the efforts of people who listened to God.

Learn Silvoso's five critical paradigms for implementing change: discipling nations, reclaiming the marketplace, seeing work as worship, using the power of God to overcome evil in everyday situations, and eliminating systemic poverty. The be challenged to transform yourself-and by doing so, transform your family, school, business and nation.

Just Think! You can make a difference in the world. It's time to look at yourself the way God does, as loved and designed with a unique purpose. You can aim high, knowing that he has entrusted you with great things. "God sees you as a nation transformer," says Silvoso. God has faith in you!
