About The Author:

Bill and his wife, Beni, serve a growing number of churches through an apostolic network that has crossed denominational lines, partnering for revival. Bill and Beni live near Redding, California.
Bill Johnson's books have always been both encouraging and challenging to me as a believer, and his newest release, The Power that Changes the World, was no different. In fact, I think it has quickly become one of my favorites by this author.
Johnson once again does a remarkable job at reminding us that there is a world around us that needs Jesus and that we need the wisdom of God to reach those around us. Drawing on mainly the wisdom of King Solomon, the author teaches us, the reader, how to truly live as salt and light to the community around us and really live out the greatest commandment given and reach the world for Him. He teaches, and reminds us, that our impact on the world has eternal ramifications and that we are go out and make disciples, as Jesus did.
I found the book was very well written, easy to read and understand and very well organized. It included a lot of great discussion questions, making this perfect for personal reflection, as well as small group study.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
