Signs, Wonders and a Baptist Preacher: How Jesus Flipped My World Upside Down

By Chad Norris, with a foreword by Jack Deere


Baptist Preacher Takes the "Weird" Out of the Supernatural

Demonstrating humor, candor, and personal vulnerability, this Southern Baptist preacher offers an entertaining, non-religious look at the Holy Spirit. He shares transparently, recounting his own history of depression and panic attacks until Jesus rescued him and showed him how to do the works of the Father. As Norris explains, "I had no paradigm for that." Then he challenges readers to engage with the supernatural.

Even though Jesus said we will do even greater things than he did, we don't. Norris's engaging narrative style lowers readers' defenses and opens their minds to the idea that these "greater things" are more attainable than they think. Because we are loved more than we imagine, says Norris, we are more capable of doing the Father's works than we have ever considered.

(I love it: Chad Norris’s story is a whole lot like Jack Deere’s own story! God's doing it again for this generation!)
