What If the Supernatural Were Really Real?
Growing up in a traditional Southern Baptist home, Chad Norris loved sweet tea, football and Jesus. But when he realized that the Jesus he had heard about in Sunday school and seminary didn't measure up to the Jesus he read about in the Bible, he began to ask questions.
He was unprepared for the way God answered.
Suddenly it was as if the miracles of the Bible had jumped off the pages and into his life and the lives of those he prayed for. Healings, visions, angels and other wonders challenged everything he thought he knew about the presence of Jesus, the Father and the Holy Spirit in the world today. And if the idea of miracles sounds strange and unbelievable to you, here's a secret: You are not alone.
Humorous, poignant and honest, Signs, Wonders and a Baptist Preacher shows that it's perfectly normal to think that God's ways are not so normal. As you travel with Chad, you will discover what happens when God shows up in your ordinary, everyday life--especially when you doubt He will.

It's obvious that Chad Norris is passionate about Christ, and that God has moved deeply in his life. He's also deeply concerned that people hear the message that God is still moving supernaturally today. It's just a shame that he couldn't decide which story he wanted to tell.
The book itself is an easy read with a good mix of personal anecdotes and simple teaching. Recommended, with the only drawback being the pages are larger format and therefore slightly more bulky to carry with you.

Its a good story of a man's journey through understanding God, his religious beliefs.. and seeing things differently than many Baptist (of which I am). Frankly, I agree with him: we should be expecting more than we do - God says so, so it is so!
