The true miracle from God, the transformation He wants to make in you today, beckons. Follow pastor Tony Evans as he digs into Scripture to equip you with tools for accelerating this miracle in your life. The cycle of recurring mistakes can be broken as you let trials and temptations develop your character. And if becoming like Christ sounds too lofty or unrealistic for you, think again.

You Can Be More… You Can Be Different

This book is nota step-by-step, do-it-yourself program, but an encouraging guide to how God will use everything in your life to bring about this radical inner change…if you’ll willingly let Him.
Forget trying to grind out the Christian life. Learn instead about the extreme makeover God has in mind for you, and the wise and loving way He will make it happen. Life will never be the same when you’re a whole new you!
Story Behind the Book
“As a preacher, I talk with many Christians whose faith is based in ‘I’—‘What am I doing to make myself stronger in my faith?’ It’s my privilege to tell them that there really isn’t anything they can do to make their faith work better. That’s because God has done it all by sending His son, Jesus, to die for us on the cross. Our only part in this bargain is to allow God, through His Holy Spirit, to make us more and more like Jesus every day we live on this earth. He wants our lives to emulate that of Jesus Christ, who lived the only perfect life in human history. He wants us to be so connected to Jesus that people will look at us and see the resemblance.” —Tony Evans
