GOD'S GIFT OF TREMENDOUS POWER
How tremendous is the power available to us who believe in God - Ephesians 1:19
The overarching purpose of the book God’s Gift of Tremendous Power is to show, scripturally, how God has called us and equipped us to live out our daily lives in the flow of His enabling, loving power. It is a practical book, explaining how we can align with biblical truth to become channels of God’s love and resurrection life.
Readers will gain a richer understanding of the awesome quality and characteristics of daily life in Christ that are available to every person who would actively seek Him in humility. Its pages help us to discover how to pray more effectively in union with the One who makes all things new (Revelation 21:5).
In God’s Gift of Tremendous Power, published through Deep River Books, the author presents a compelling case that the latest discoveries of quantum physics reinforce biblical truth. She uses the term “quantum field” as shorthand to describe the fundamental fabric of the universe comprising immense swirls, or fields, of vibrating energy which are all interconnected, and which constitute one vast, infinite universal field of energy. The author maintains that these scientific discoveries echo the omnipresence – or indeed the infinity – of God; that the quantum field is the medium which God created at the moment of the Big Bang, and through which He created Earth and through which He manifests all His works.
“Ann Shakespeare generously shares with the reader the fruit of her own life and prayer experience. With a two-eyed vision she brings into a vivid focus the scientific knowledge of the “quantum field” (the subatomic dynamics of creation) with a dynamic faith in Christ as Creator, Redeemer and Ascended Lord who “fills all things everywhere”. This a vision that can transform both the perception and experience of life in Christ.
Ann’s writing is concise, logical and practical. It is built upon a firm scriptural foundation allied to personal and pastoral experience. It will certainly fulfil its main purpose: to enable individuals to have a transforming encounter with Christ and partake in a new ministry of prayer through the power of the Love of God in Christ.” – The Reverend Canon Andrew Hawes, Canon of Lincoln Cathedral with a particular ministry in spiritual direction and retreat work.
“The author has masterfully drawn together the truth of who Jesus is with who we are in Him and the science of quantum physics. Her use of scripture is also inspirational and is used to illustrate her points effectively … This book has given me a renewed hunger for the Bible.” – Biddy Collyer, writer.
“I was utterly enthralled reading this wonderful book, which explains Jesus Christ’s “tremendous power” working in and through the whole of creation. The book is richly imbued with Gods Word and is deeply spiritual and prayerful. Ann Shakespeare highlights the central themes of God’s love, the Spirit of the risen Jesus Christ, and the need to eschew worldly power and embrace our own weakness. She explains how together they form a prism through which God’s all-embracing love can be channelled through us into the world. I also felt that the emphasis she places upon the transformative power of contemplation, prayer, and praying for healing through God’s Word, is deeply compelling. Through contemplation and prayer we respond to God’s call to “put on the mind of Christ”, and so pour out His love into the world. This inspirational book gives profound insight into Revelation 21:5, “See, I am making all things new.” – The Reverend Dr Lynda Pugh, Priest and Spiritual Director in the Diocese of Chester.
“God’s Gift of Tremendous Power is a fluent and intelligent guide that would inspire and motivate any Christian seeking to enrich their faith.” – From a review in The Scotsman.
