by Priscilla Evans Shirer

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


“Every believer who has felt powerless in their struggle to live a victorious Christian life will find And We Are Changed by Priscilla Shirer to be a beacon leading them to the transforming power God desires us to experience. Subtitled Encounters with a Transforming God this book challenges believers to live a life of unbridled devotion to the God who created us, loves us, and offers us power for victorious living.

“How can we get this power? Priscilla teaches us how to enter a love relationship with Jesus Christ. In His presence we change and learn a new ways to know and serve the Lord. We experience deep intimacy and passionate worship. As a result, our lives will be changed. But this path to transformation is not easy. Priscilla prepares us for the obstacles that can sidetrack us and motivates us by showing us how the transformation works in a believer's life. ‘Jesus death means more than just your salvation and privilege to enter into eternity. It also means that the same power that raised Jesus is available to enable you to live a victorious Christian life while you are here in history!’

“Priscilla Shirer, daughter of Tony Evans, holds a master's degree in biblical studies from Dallas Theological Seminary. Her work is rich with biblical examples and lessons learned though observing the lives of Ruth, Mary, Martha, Lazarus, and the nation of Israel. Priscilla also includes personal examples of her own struggles as she seeks to live in the transforming power of God. That she has succeeded and is being richly used by God is indicated in the forward written by Priscilla's mentor, Anne Graham Lotz.

“I read books of this nature with a highlighter in hand. When I complete it, I type some of the most meaningful, thought-provoking, inspiring quotes and post them on my refrigerator. After reading And We are Changed, my refrigerator is full! The book provides inspiration and meat for thought to last far beyond the last page. ‘The Lord longs to transform each of us from the common caterpillar into the beautiful and unique butterflies that He intended for us to be.’ ” -- Marsha J. Wright, Christian Book

Book Jacket:

It is troubling how often we cease to be amazed at the transforming power of God in people's lives. When we meet Jesus, we are supposed to be changed. Jesus' death not only saves us and secures heaven for us, it is the power by which we can live a victorious Christian life here on earth. In And We Are Changed, Priscilla Shirer challenges readers to walk in freedom, throwing off the chains that have kept them from fully following Christ. She helps readers discover how to let the Word of God set us free, transforming us for His glory.
