Defining Moments is a fascinating look at the remarkable ways in which God has used ordinary people to change history. But it is more than just history; it unveils the future. Prophetic in nature, the book reveals what God wants to do in each of our lives to fulfill His purposes today, tomorrow, and in the years to come. The stories in this collection of God–encounters carry a prophetic anointing for all who have ears to hear. Author Bill Johnson highlights significant traits and contributions of well–known leaders like John Wesley, Charles Finney, Dwight Moody, Maria Woodworth–Etter, Carrie Judd Montgomery, Smith Wigglesworth, John G. Lake, Evan Roberts, Rees Howells, Aimee Semple McPherson, Kathryn Kuhlman, Randy Clark, and Heidi Baker, explaining the impact these leaders can have on us today as we respond to the life–changing truths revealed through their lives. There is power in knowing the testimonies of others–men and women who experienced God in a defining moment and said yes to His unique call on their lives. It is a power that inspires us to hunger for God in such a way that we, too, have an encounter with Him that launches us into the world of the “impossible,” enabling us to fulfill a greater measure of our destiny. Read this book with a sense of readiness, and watch what happens.
