Description


The teaching pastor of one of America's largest megachurches gives a call to action: Study the mountains mentioned in Scripture. Learn what God reveals there about himself, and you. Then take those truths back to the people.

An overview of the mountaintop experiences mentioned in Scripture where God met with his followers for the express purpose of greater clarity on two questions: Who is God? and Who am I? Each chapter provides the reader with a clear picture of God's character and how those attributes both challenge and encourage us.

“There’s something about exploration that’s always fascinated me. The greatest explorers learn that when the climber achieves the mountain peak, it makes all the difficulty, challenge, and pain it took to get there worthwhile.

How do we conquer the mountains we’re faced with, and what can God reveal to us as we see the world from that vantage point? While we can’t always live on the mountain, the moments we spend there make the journey worthwhile. Get this book. It will challenge your thinking about moving beyond your limits and give you a new vision for what God can accomplish with your life.”

“When I heard Jarrett Stephens talk about a preaching series he was going to do on the mountaintop experiences found in the Bible, I thought it was such a great idea. So many important events in the Bible take place on a mountain: Mount Carmel, Mount Moriah, Mount Sinai, and the Mount of Transfiguration. At each venue we see that God is the protector, the provider, the sustainer, the transformer, and so much more. Let God take you to the mountaintop and experience a new point of view.”
—Kerby Anderson, president of Probe Ministries and host of Point of View radio talk show
