    Well-written, well-documented and honest.

    Taking into account just raw numbers, Reinhard Bonnke is probably the most successful evangelist of our life-time. Reading this book gives us an engrossing overview of his remarkable life. This autobiography is filled with heartwarming personal memoires, dramatic events, headline-grabbing miracles, beautiful testimonies, accounts of meetings with kings, presidents and rulers of nations, lessons learned and and even just some fun, lightweight anekdotes.

Reading this book gives us an engrossing overview of his remarkable life. This autobiography is filled with heartwarming personal memoires, dramatic events, headline-grabbing miracles, beautiful testimonies, accounts of meetings with kings, presidents and rulers of nations, lessons learned and and even just some fun, lightweight anekdotes. We read how the often explosive political climates in Africa affected the ministry and led Reinhard and his team into sometimes life-threatening situations. Although we know Reinhard Bonnke for his famous gospel crusades throughout Africa with attendance often exceeding more than one million people, his beginnings were humble and small. When he was 11 years old he evangelized on the street corners of Glückstadt and was overjoyed to see for the first time a soul saved. God spoke to him when he was 8 years that he would be send to Africa, but a lot of people around him, including his father (who was a preacher) and family members did not acknowledge his calling. In many ways he was considered socially a 'zero'. Pentecostals were looked down upon in Lutheran Germany, his brothers looked down upon the occupation of their father and found it foolish that Reinhard wanted to be a preacher. When he eventually came to Africa he initially found little support for his ministry. But God took him through a personal training through a series of events that would repeatedly break the mold of his thinking. Theological barriers were broken, denominational barriers were broken and natural barriers were broken. God gave him a vision of a blood-washed Africa and this vision has remained the driving purpose of his life. Always seeking and knocking for new opportunities to bring the Gospel in new and grander ways for maximum impact. The tents grew bigger until no tent could ever hold the crowds. The technological tools and equipment that were used grew more advanced and left nothing to chance. The crusades were headline news everywhere they came. Besides his unstoppable desire to fulfill his life-time mission, one of the things that strikes me most about his life is his simplicity and pureness. Although his ministry has impacted the history and courses of whole nations and generations, there always remains this often boyish and feisty sheen in his personality and the complete dependence on the guidance of the Holy Spirit. From the outside he is changing the course of world-history, from the inside we read how he cries out to God for help how to handle the situations he faces. Besides that, he never lost the ability to value the life of one soul. Every life is valuable, because Jesus paid the highest price for that one individual. The book is full of lessons in faith and what gets clear from every page, is that Bonnke is actually a normal, ordinary man, whose secret of success is just in simple obedience to the voice of the Lord. What God did through Bonnke, *GOD* did through Bonnke. And since it's *GOD* that does the impossible while Bonnke simply acts in obedience, it becomes clear that God can do miraculous things through anybody that simply chooses to obey. One might argue that some stories in the book could've been skipped (nice to know that he loves to ride a bicycle, but the book could've done without a complete chapter about the subject). Sometimes Bonnke unnecessarily repeats some of the events in different parts of the book. But this style actually fits the man. It never pretends to be top-literature or anything more than amusing and faith-inspiring prose that anybody can read. And as just that, it succeeds marvelously and it will give you some lessons in history, politics, culture and ministry in the process. One last remark: some of the stories in this book were also collected in the book 'Even Greater'. So if you read this book, you can skip that one.

    3/11 books // Preaching Class Hard to rate. heavily disagree with much of method and theology used by the author for his events. "crusades" is a poor term for a white guy bringing white Jesus to Africa. On the other hand, I think one can learn from anyone. This man is audacious & clearly puts in the hours. That, plus this mystical connection with the Divine / his inner voice is something that I found highly interesting. He skims over all hard questions, and that is rather sad.

    The most unsung hero in the Kingdom for the last century, Bonnke gives us a real gift and writes one of the most powerful autobiographies that I have ever read. Do not let the thickness of the book keep you from diving in - you will be enriched and blessed by this work.

    What an amazing book! I listened to the audio version, read by Reinhard Bonnke himself. I was in tears many times hearing the testimonies of healing and God’s faithfulness in the life of someone who lived bold and unashamed. This is a must-read for every believer!

    Although I knew a bit about Bonnke, I really didn't know much. His voice is genuine and this turned into a far better read than I had expected. Although I knew a bit about Bonnke, I really didn't know much. His voice is genuine and this turned into a far better read than I had expected.

    This book has been a very comprehensive and detailed account of God’s work in Bonnke. True enough, as he shared in the last chapter of this book that there won’t be enough space if we were to account all the things God has done. I can really say that God is in the details. I may have read a lot of stories here but there are so much more untold on this side of heaven. Maybe it’s just for that person and that made him/her saved - still a count in the Great Commission.

Bonnke’s ministry has been a massive one. From one to the world’s largest tent. Who can limit God when He calls a person? The commission is indeed great. What caught me at the end of the book is the baton. He was so right saying, how can we finish a story that does not have an end? Well I get to catch the baton now. On my watch, let there be a large tent to bring home more souls for the glory of the Living God!

    I love this book! It is the testimony of this man who dedicated his life to winning souls to Messiah Yeshua in Africa, and also around the world! He gives a step by step recounting of some of the Miracles that happened, if he had given all they would require volumes of books that would fill up a library! When he preached the Gospel diseases were healed! Blind, lame, deaf, heart problems, lung issues, even a man rendered dumb by a car accident, and a prisoner scheduled for execution set free!

    Life changing When I first started reading this book I had little interest and I put it aside. In Pentecost Sunday 2020 after my early morning time with the Lord I decided to revisit the book. I have been captivated, inspired and lit on fire for this gospel. His life was truly an adventure but he poured it out for God! Because of this book my life will never be the same! Thank you so much for all you did for the kingdom of God!

    I don't consider myself a "reader" so I haven't read many books. However, this is the largest book that I have ever read (took me some time but I finished it) because I was interested in Mr. Bonnke's walk with God and ministry. The book was a gift from a dear friend. Mr. Bonnke recently passed away (2019). I don't consider myself a "reader" so I haven't read many books.

    My wife and I have seen Mr Bonnke here in Houston. And we bought the book then which was a few years ago. I was wanting something to read and decided to pick this up and I wasn't disappointed. Mr Bonnke is a bull in his faith. It helped me to want to push my faith and trust in God more. My wife and I have seen Mr Bonnke here in Houston.

    Wow! Such beautiful writing kept me engaged the whole way. It keeps this Christian longing for what he has and to know Jesus better. He makes one want to listen closer for the Holy Spirit’s guidance and not act until He speaks. Well done Rev. Bonnke, well done.

    Reinhard Bonnke is certainly a man of God to bring the gospel and in the process the wonder working power of the Lord to Africa. This book chronicles the story of how and why and what happened on that God given journey.

    Incredible. Ever wondered what it is like when God directs your life, read this amazing story. The impact this many had on this carnal world is hard to imagine.

    I was a little skeptical going into this book to tell the truth. After reading it I was really humbled and blown away. I definitely I encourage others to read it and learn from a life of great faith in a great God.
