Description

"Practical. Encouraging. Motivating. God is the greatest giver of all, so it makes sense that He loves to honor stunning generosity. Double Blessing challenges us to reframe our perception of blessing, seeing God's gifts as opportunities for increased generosity. Mark Batterson calls all of us to not only receive God's blessings but also to excellently use what we've been given to bring glory to God and grace to those around us."--Louie Giglio, pastor of Passion City Church, founder of Passion Conferences, author of Not Forsaken

"I love Mark Batterson's transparency about his own journey toward incredible generosity. And his practical advice in Double Blessing will get you up and moving in the right direction before you know it. But I'll warn you to keep a pen handy. He's got some great one-liners that you'll want to remember--and probably claim as your own!"--Dave Ramsey, best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio show host

"Double Blessing is a genuine, powerful nudge toward God's bighearted way. It will spark wonder and hope, leaving you ready to bless others through your blessings. That is the best way to live!"--Bob Goff, author of the New York Times bestsellers Love Does and Everybody, Always

"The word blessed has been hijacked to mean something completely different from what God intended. In Double Blessing, Mark takes us to the root of the word and shows us how much better for us God's true blessing is than anything the world could ever give."--Carlos Whittaker, author of Kill the Spider

"Through pure honesty and authenticity, Mark Batterson in Double Blessing reminds us of God's powerful call for us to bless others through the blessings that we've received and to remain generous through all occasions. When these principles of giving and receiving are put into practice, we glorify God and make a tremendous impact on the lives of others."--Roma Downey, actress, producer, and New York Times best-selling author

"In this book, Mark Batterson has tapped into two things I am very passionate about: giving and prayer. If we all shift our focus from what we can get to what we can give, then God will, as Malachi 3:10 says, 'open the floodgates of heaven' in our lives."--David Green, CEO of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.

"In Double Blessing, Mark Batterson skillfully describes the nature of a loving and compassionate Father who naturally desires to bless His children beyond their wildest dreams. Batterson simultaneously underscores the personal responsibility of believers to live obedient and benevolent lives. Your desire to discover and walk in your birthright as a believer will increase exponentially in reading this book, as will your desire to be a blessing unto others."--John K. Jenkins Sr., pastor of First Baptist Church of Glenarden, Maryland

"Whenever Mark teaches or writes, we are wise to listen or read. He seems to sense what we need to learn. This book is no exception. Thanks, Mark."--Max Lucado, pastor and best-selling author of How Happiness Happens

"God has blessed Mark Batterson with the spiritual vision and godly insight to provide every reader with clear direction through Double Blessing. Receiving a blessing is wonderful, but receiving a double blessing is what God desires for us to enjoy and embrace."--Kevin Warren, commissioner-elect of the Big Ten Conference

Another outstanding book by Mark Batterson. We all believe that when we pray, God will answer our prayers with blessings. However, this book brings up a good point. What if the reason God blesses us is so that we in turn can bless others? The more we are given, the more we can give to others which in turn blesses us. What we need to remember is that God doesn't often answer our prayers in the way we intend because we need to pass on our blessing in another way as well. Mark Batterson has a way of writing books that really make me think and make me a better person for reading them. He is practical and encouraging. I would highly encourage you to read this book to find out the blessings God is sharing with you. #PRHPartner

Batterson is one of my favorite authors and I was excited to be an early reader for this amazing book! In "Double Blessing," pastor Mark Batterson shares his opinion on how we've misunderstood the blessings of God: "What is the blessing of God? It’s God—God with us, God for us, God in us. To reduce it to anything less dishonors God and devalues the blessing." Don't expect a how to on prosperity gospel in "Double Blessing." This book is about anything but! Often we attempt to place God in box, asking Him for what we call blessings, instead of trusting Him to supply our needs and bless us according to His will. If we are blessed with more than we can use or are given a way to bless another, that becomes a double blessing--we are able to help someone else because we've been blessed by God. It seems simple, doesn't it? Batterson writes in a relatable way and is easy to understand. He uses his years of experience in ministry, gathering examples from Scripture and applying those examples to real world situations. He walks with the reader, not using verbiage that is above the reader's head or using "Christianese." "Double Blessing" would be an amazing book to read corporately as a church, small group or even for those in the non profit sector. Don't miss this one if you've struggled with giving or receiving blessings. To give means to provide for another-and you can't out give God! I especially loved this quote: "Generosity is born of optimism. Optimism is an abundance of hope, an abundance of faith." Batterson then speaks on the boy with the two loaves and five fish and his willingness to give to Jesus, inadvertently providing for thousands with his small gift. I was an early reader, thanks to Waterbrook Multnomah. All opinions were my own and I was not required to leave a review.
