    1. Before I start this review, I need to tell you that I was a big fan of Steven Furtick before he put a single word down on paper. I first heard him speak last September on The Nines, an online conference put on by Leadership NetworkNow, I realize that he may or may not be your cup of tea - he's definitely got a "grew up in the South & around church" vibe - but that video cut through a morass of self-pity & frustration in my ministry & life. He blends "inside baseball" humor (well, "in [...]


    2. Pastor Steven Furtick is regularly criticized for his lax use of Scripture, his shaky theology, and his over-eager charm, but there is no denying he is gifted and talented. While I'm somewhat in the Reformed camp who has claimed doctrinal war against guys like Furtick, I personally love his ministry. I appreciate what he does. I download podcasts from Mark Driscoll, Matt Chandler, Timothy Keller, James MacDonald, and anyone else you'd call conservative, but my odd blip on the iPod is Steven Furt [...]


    3. Every once in a while you read a book that intersects with where you are in life in such a way that it's almost conversational. This has been that book for me. It has encouraged me on my journey.



    4. When I saw Steven Furtick at the Willow Creek Association Global Leadership Summit this year, I was drawn in by his personality. You could tell that he believed he could change the world. This book helps one to dig deeper into his mindset.I feel genuinely encouraged in my walk.


    5. The first time I had heard of Steven Furtick was when I picked up this book. Evidently he is a pastor of a very large and successful Church and movement in the southern states. Admittedly, even in first picking up this book and perusing the first few chapters it is hard to get a complete picture of the man and his methodology. In fact, it wouldn't be surprising to find many who might be prone to reading a certain degree of cynicism in to what at first glance gives the appearance of a superficial [...]


    6. On the front end, I feel it's only fair to admit that when I first received this book, I was not a big fan of Steven Furtick. In my admittedly limited experience with the young megachurch pastor, I had found him to be brash, over-the-top, and borderline arrogant not exactly qualities I look for in a preacher. Of course, I have generally found that it hasn't been an issue with what he has said so much as how he has said it (this video is a good example).Since my problems with Furtick have been [...]


    7. "Audacious faith" - that is the key phrase in Steven Furtick's Sun Stand Still: What Happens When You Dare to Ask God for the Impossible. The subtitle says it all - What Happens When You Dare to Ask God for the Impossible. The story of Joshua asking God to cause the sun to stand still in the sky, that the Lord's words may come to pass, is that backdrop to this challenging, inspiring book. In the same way that Joshua possessed an audacious faith to ask God for what seemed impossible, we are to li [...]


    8. "God is great. God is good." A simple prayer. A child's prayer. But this is the building block to what author Steven Furtick calls "audacious faith" in his book *Sun Stand Still.*The premise of his book comes from the Old Testament story of Joshua and the taking of Jericho. Joshua had faith-an "audacious faith"- and he prayed an impossible prayer that only God could answer. That is the type of prayer life we are to have as Christians.The author uses many stories and examples in a conversation st [...]


    9. Read this, if only to gain exposure from a mega church but don't read this to learn. There were a few things I found uncomfortable with this pastor and his church that lean toward the unhealthy.A church is not successful based on its numbers.A healthy church has the majority, if not all serving. His church is 12,000 and only a few thousand serve.He mentioned that he doesn't even know the roles in his church. The pastor needs to know each person, because in the end he is accountable for his flock [...]


    10. Such an inspiring and motivating book, written in a way that is relatable, easy to read and Biblically-founded. I was also pleased that Furtick had a vision for this novel, used Joshua as the main biblical parallel and did not stay from this vision or Joshua's audacious faith example.Parts of this book led me to tears in recognizing God's goodness and at other times because of how much I know I need to change in my own life.I've been following Christ for more than several years now and found thi [...]


    11. Ugh.I started this book after hearing an associate pastor at my church preach an uplifting message from it and while I HAD been enjoying it, I felt pretty slimey about the pastor who wrote it after I read [quite a bit more] about him (here's a bizarre starting point: crosswalk/blogs/christ) -- a great reminder to do my homework when it comes to finding authors whose messages I want to follow as they relate to my faith.


    12. Amazing and challenging. This book is a poke on our backs so we start paying attention to the life we're living. Is it a faith driven life, or a fear driven life?It´s encouraging to read that it is possible to live a life of audacious faith, and this way have the best life God has planned for us.


    13. Loved the book; its going into my personal library. Written in a way to wake you back up to the radical truths of the Bible. Re-charging, re-firing, reminding the believer that God's power, and unusual ways have NOT passed away; dare to ask and believe. To pray daring, outrageous, world changing prayers.


    14. Excellent book. First book I've read by Furtick and I love how down to earth his writing style is- very easy to read. And the thoughts and approaches to faith and prayer are so positive and purposeful- I will work to use these along with his 12 audacious faith confessions on page 114 daily.


    15. I liked it because of the message. He seems to be a speaker who writes, but his passion and message are powerful. It definitely lit a fire under me regarding the vision I was give several years ago. If you desire to do GREAT things for the world to the glory of God then I recommend this book.


    16. A non fiction book that I actually loved! This book doesn't discourage you with crazy expectations. It actually encourages you to not lose faith in that big prayer that you have and to get into the word and stand on the promises of God. Has changed the way I pray!


    17. Never did I expect to start the year with the right book - if such a thing does exist. A lot of things happened recently, one thing led to another, and here I am sitting in awe, trying to process everything I've absorbed from this book. I've always loved Pastor Steven and the messages he brings to life - be it via his weekly sermons or books.This one is a good reminder that we are the Joshua generation and therefore, to just (barely) survive our day-to-day lives is completely unacceptable. Salva [...]


    18. In Sun Stand Still, Pastor Furtick uses the story of Joshua and the battle against the Amorites (Joshua 10:1-15) to illustrate and define the idea of "audacious faith," or the boldness to dare to ask God for the impossible. In the story, Joshua prays that God will keep the sun from setting over the battlefield so that the Israelite army can defeat the Amorite army once and for all. In response to Joshua's prayer, God makes the sun stand still in the sky.Many would argue that making the sun stand [...]


    19. Review: A challenging, profound and inspiring description/instruction of how to gain a deeper relationship with God. Furtick is in your face, honest, and takes no prisoners; favorite quotes say it all. Favorite Quote: "If the size of your vision for your life isn't intimidating to you, there's a good chance it's insulting to God." (p. 7); “You will never know what it is like to experience God’s power in this way until you have the audacity to believe and pray and act in the confidence that o [...]


    20. I had a few moments throughout the book where I wanted to put it down and be frustrated. But God is working in me and He helped me to continue on until the end. It's a wonderful and powerful message that anyone can apply to their lives and their personal story. I highly recommend for anyone and everyone!


    21. Faith livesThe message in this book is audacious and life-changing. If you want your life to be different.er. If you want to make your world better; and if you want to walk in the miraculous, then this book’s for you.


    22. I loved this book. The way Steven challenges the believer in faith and prayer, all backed by sound Biblical fact- it spoke to me. What a read. It'll fire up your faith, to be sure. I definitely needed a book like this and I'm grateful for the lessons and reminders found in it!


    23. Inspirational for ChristiansRecommend for those seeking to ignite their faith and learn how to put it into action. An easy going positive read


    24. Awesome book about praying prayers worthy of a great God who is ready to do great things through His people.





    25. Sun Stand Still is about obtaining and building an audacious faith and believing that God is able to do all things. When we have faith that God can still do the impossible in our lives we stop fearing and worrying about the unknown. Steven Furtick explained that he prayed bold prayers to God in believing that he would answer them. He prayed that he would lead many people to Christ and transformation would occur in their lives. He decided to move to North Carolina with seven other families. They [...]
