Satisfy your intrinsic desire to rise above the norm.
No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him. 1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT
First words of the book... Very good book! You may not think you will get a lot out of it, but you will. Why are we always drawn to stories with heroic things? Like movies, stories... Maybe because we think we need to escape to the extraordinary. Where we can dream and have "full-filled" lives. Where no one can hurt us and we can't hurt anyone.
At the end of each chapter there are questions based on the chapter you just read. It's kinda like a study, you could do this as a small group. Very good. Even if you don't think you will get something out of it, I guarantee you will get a little something!
