One In A Million: Book Review and Giveaway

About The Book:

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!


About The Author:

Priscilla Shirer is a Bible teacher and conference speaker with a Master’s degree in Biblical Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary. She is also theauthor of popular books including A Jewel in His Crown, He Speaks to Me, Discerning the Voice of God, and One in a Million. The daughter of author Dr. Tony Evans, Priscilla is married to Jerry with whom she founded Going Beyond Ministries. They have three sons and live in Dallas, Texas.


My Review:

I had the pleasure to be a part of a my church's Ladies Bible Study last Winter/Spring when we studies Priscilla Shirer's One In A Million DVD Bible Study. Wow, what a gift from God Shirer has.

As I read through the book, I was reminded of many wonderful gems I got from the DVD series. The one point that constantly stuck out to me is that it God allows trials and "wilderness" experiences to occur in our lives, so He can draw us closer to Him. Of course, He does not like to see us in pain, but He always is there for us all along the journey. Through reading One In A Million you will travel the journey of not only admitting sin in our life, but allowing God to work on us through the trials, and ultimately do His will, in spite of our sinful nature.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
