Discovering Fierce Faith, Unquenchable Passion and a Life-Giving God

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Play with Fire, the debut book by popular speaker and teacher Bianca Juarez Olthoff, is the reminder that God isn’t waiting until you have more resources or a spouse or a job so he can use you. He’s ready to use you now.

Using the mythical creature, the Phoenix, which was also referenced by early church leaders, she parallels this story with God’s work in her own life, highlighting the beauty of reinvention with fire as both the impetus and the method for change. Olthoff reminds us that we serve a God who is redemptive and can take the worst situations and use them for His glory.

Play With Fire is a bible-infused message that will help women discover:
The way out of the middle is moving forwardThe personal and powerful nature of the Holy SpiritThe power and sacrifice of transformationThe unique calling and purpose of life involves transformation
With Olthoff’s distinct style, strong storytelling gifts, and powerful bible teaching, Play with Fire will remind readers that God has huge dreams for them. In Bianca’s words, “He’s whispering in the wind and speaking through the fire and shouting in silence the extraordinary dream He is birthing in you. His dream for you is far greater than the dream you have for yourself. It’s not your identity or income or influence that will make this happen. Like Zechariah 4:6 says, “’It’s not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord.” It’s time to play with fire.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 13, 2016 – Part memoir and part spiritual growth guide, Olthoff's debut reminds readers of the idea that God's biggest desire for their lives is to know him personally. Olthoff, who is chief storyteller for the A-21 Campaign and creative director for Propel Women, parallels the story of the Israelites with a season of her own life when she struggled to hear God amid the voices of her own perfectionism and the pain of watching her mother battle cancer. Her voice comes alive as she tells of growing up in Los Angeles and moving through seasons of faith and doubt as she reached her 20s with dreams of the life she wanted. Drawing on her own story and scripture, Olthoff encourages readers to allow the Holy Spirit to transform them from the inside out, replacing hopelessness with an awareness of all that God can do through a life surrendered to his desires. Olthoff's transparency is natural, and her ability to tie in Biblical principles that undergird her discussion of transformation and the Holy Spirit make this work deeply rooted and engaging.
