Have you ever wondered about your purpose or the meaning of your life? Andy Stanley, founder and senior pastor at North Point Community Church, addresses those questions in his book Visioneering. Visioneering is the engineering of a vision. The emphasis is on God-ordained visions and Stanley inspires us to find those visions for each and every aspect of our lives.
In the opening pages Stanley defines vision as, “a clear mental picture of what could be, fueled by the conviction that it should be.” Throughout the rest of the book Stanley follows the biblical story of Nehemiah and his desire to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Stanley shows the reader how Nehemiah’s story provides a blueprint for finding, following and staying true to our God-ordained visions. Each chapter is approximately ten pages long and ends with concrete workbook questions to help you develop your individual vision and to lead you through the process of following that vision. Whether you are a parent developing a vision for your family, a CEO structuring a vision for your company or a pastor looking to fulfill a vision for your church, Visioneering is a great tool to help you follow and implement God’s purpose in your life.
