We box Jesus in. We say, 'This is how he works.' In answer to all the ways we aim to control, define and understand him, Jesus reminds us that he has immeasurably more to offer. How often do we feel like we are at the end of our energy? Not only physically and emotionally, but also spiritually? Some of us have been running this race for so long that we feel dangerously dehydrated. Jesus is calling all of us into a radical empowered life that we couldn't ever achieve in our own strength. Jesus tells his church that there is immeasurably more on offer than just a religious life, a good life or a moral life. There is more to offer our families and friends, more to offer our neighbourhoods. Jesus offers us an immeasurably more powerful and beautiful life. To a dehydrated church, Jesus announces...there is always more.

'This is a beautiful book by a remarkable leader exploring a magnificent theme. I commend it wholeheartedly to anyone thirsty for more from God.' -- Pete Greig, 24-7 Prayer / Emmaus Rd / Alpha International "Cris Rogers is one of the church's creative pioneers with a passion to communicate the Christian faith." -- Nicky Gumbel What you have here is a book that scratches an itch, in a gentle yet stirring narrative that challenges and provokes. Cris leads us on a journey to lift our eyes above the horizon, to go on a journey of ever increasing wonder, to look for a deeper well of the Spirit in our own lives and life the of church. The need to expand our imagination and thirst for a deeper experience with an unfathomable God is communicated beautifully in this book. It is a pathway to more, but not a selfish more! A more of the life we have always dreamed of, a life of depth and encounter with a God who wants to take us further than we could ever imagine. -- Brian Heasley, 24-7 Prayer God wants to completely blow your mind and lead you into the deeper waters of knowing and experiencing Him. Trust me, there is so much more than the life which you are currently setting into. Allow this modern day prophet to take you on a journey to discover the One who cannot be contained. It's time to wake up and surrender to the life awaiting! -- Rob Peabody, co-founder and International Director of Awaken If God says there's more, it must be true. As Cris shows us a disappointing experience of Christianity isn't possible, unless you've yet to discover the real thing. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it looks really fresh! -- Paul Harcourt, New Wine Regional Director for London and East, and Vicar of All Saints' Woodford Wells "A call and a map back to the deep end." -- Simon Ponsonby, St Aldates Oxford
