Hillsong Church's senior pastor Brian Houston has just released his new book "LIVE LOVE LEAD." This is his most personal book o date where the Australia megachurch pastor talks about his journey towards faith and the challenges he faced along the way.
"Over the last 18 months I have poured my heart into a book about the highs and lows, mountains and valleys of my life, love and leadership journey," he wrote in the Hillsong website.
"This manuscript is filled with both personal and leadership stories that many have never heard me speak about before - from the time I was a young boy, to the early days of Hillsong Church, to the present-day realities and adventures we are facing right now!"
Houston shared his appreciation in the Hillsong blog. He wrote: "I am overwhelmed by the love and support that I have received over my new book, 'LIVE LOVE LEAD.' Messages from old and new friends, members of our congregation both here and overseas have encouraged me more than you know."
"I really do believe that to this point, this book is my life's' work and I am heartfelt in my prayer that it enlarges your life, stretches your vision, blesses your heart and points people to Jesus," he said.
Houston believes that every person has a story worth telling. He hopes that every person who reads "LIVE LOVE LEAD" will develop a fresh and personal way on how to revive their hearts for Jesus Christ, and forge a deep relationship with Him as they dream of a bigger, brighter, and better future.
"It's been my own discovery that Jesus wants us to live a BIG LIFE (Vision), which is sometimes discovered on a DIFFICULT PATH (Roadblocks along the way), but as we walk through the NARROW GATE (following Jesus), we will find a GLORIOUS FUTURE (abundant and eternal life)," he said.
