9780310259459 Seismic Shifts: The Little Changes That Make a Big Difference in Your Life
by Kevin G. Harney

Is it possible for a person to experience dramatic and powerful transformation? Can an ordinary man or woman begin a season of forward movement and growth in areas that have stayed the same for many years? Can our dream of becoming more like Jesus and experiencing a life of health, growth, and joy become a reality? Not only is it possible, this is exactly what God wants to happen. In the physical world, this kind of change is called a seismic shift. A small movement in the crust of the earth can send out shockwaves that have radical and far-reaching effects, redefining an entire landscape. It is the same in the spiritual world. Small changes can transform our faith, hearts, relationships, personal habits, finances, and even the world in which we live. If we are willing to make small, simple, biblically inspired “seismic shifts,” God will enter the process and do amazing things, transforming our lives into ones of joy, victory, and purpose. The book includes discussion questions and can be used in a six-week, church-wide campaign with personal learning, small group discussion, and weekly worship services.

Sometimes, there’s so much bad news coming from the media that it’s fair to ask: is there any other kind?

In Little Mercies, acclaimed essayist Lynn Coulter answers, “Yes, there is. There is some very Good News indeed, and it has a name. Jesus.”
