God has promised us miracles. Are you willing to do what it takes to see them through?
We all desire the favor of God on our lives. We eagerly pray and hope for His miracles, promises, and blessings. But carrying the promises of God often means being stretched, being inconvenienced, and being patient to nourish those promises until it is God’s time for them to be born.
In Birthing the Miraculous Heidi Baker weaves true stories from her life and ministry—including personal visitations and life-changing visions—together with the biblical story of Mary’s pregnancy with Jesus to show you how to become a catalyst for God’s glory here on earth.
Sometimes God’s promises seem bizarre, implausible, and even crazy. But no matter how impossible His promises seem, we can respond as Mary did, with a yielded cry of “Yes!” It is time to go into every realm of society, carrying your promise, believing for the impossible, and watching God do the miraculous through you.
- Excellent content but the reader constantly gushes emotion
CONTENT: Excellent! The book is very inspiring and like the writings of Brother Yu and Watchman Nee, Heidi Baker's insights into a biblical Christian life are to be respected because they were refined by fire in the severe challenges and dangers of mission work in Mozambique.
AUDIO QUALITIES: I found it impossible to listen to more than a few chapters, thus the low score. This may seem harsh. Let me explain. There is not much advantage in having excellent content if I cannot access it. The book is read by Susan Hanfield. When listening to the narration in the three minute sample offered before buying, one may notice and even admire the eloquence of Ms Hanfield's communication of the emotional value of the content; but I discovered this is like being offered a slice of lemon flavoured cheesecake topped with cream and chocolate sauce; one slice can be stimulating and enjoyable, but after another four slices one might start to feel a bit nauseous and eating all thirteen slices is difficult if not impossible. So it is that I was unable to complete the audio book and needed to buy a paper copy! I pondered why this should be so and remembered what I had learned about some female speakers whilst a visitor at an international ladies Christian convention. (I am male). I noticed how some of the ladies communicated with each other in a way that was different from the way men usually communicate with each other in a similar setting. The ladies tended to emphasis emotion and sincerity much more than the men do, and spoke in a more personal way, as if leaning over to freinds in a coffee bar and sharing some intimate secret. It was thus also as if the lady speakers wanted to bond with the listener. This helped me to better understand why I found Susan Hanfield's narration so hard to continue to listen to- it was a very eloquent and skilful emphasis of every emotion implied in the content, but to an extreme degree. This is a stark contrast to some of the male narrations I have heard which sound as if done by a robot, with no emotional emphasis at all. Susan constantly gushes with emotion, luxuriating in every opportunity to fully emphasize joy, laughter, sorrow, confusion etc, in such an overly intense sincere way that after a few chapters it was all too much and I had to stop listening. Of course you may find Susan's narration a complete delight, and you have the right to compose your own evaluation.
