Longwood, FL (PRWEB) February 3, 2008
LONGWOOD, FL--The body of Christ has reached a point where everything is being labeled as "anointed." This has caused many believers to become stagnant and complacent. But there is a remnant of frustrated and disgruntled believers who are searching for something more than the hype of what has been labeled as "anointed services." They are crying out for more than what the body of Christ is offering them now. But how can the body of Christ take someone beyond his or her present limitations? The answer can only be found at the feet of Jesus, where our limitations meet His infinite wisdom and where our anointing takes a back seat to the Anointed One. In Beyond the Anointing (paperback, 978-1-60477-593-8), by Bishop Otis G. Rankin, Jr., readers will gain a practical sense of what it takes to get to the glory of God.
Says Rankin, "There is a generation that desires to go beyond the norm of church as usual but we have not been told how to get there or that there is anything other than what we have called 'church' for years. This book is a 'how to get there' manual. The book is a timely and valuable resource for those seeking to see the greater works manifested and to be a part of the glorious church for which Christ will return."
Spending 20-plus years in ministry was what imbued Rankin with the desire to see all the Bible talks about manifested in the lives of members of the body of Christ in a real and practical way. This is no different than an Alexander Graham Bell or a Bill Gates--both of whom had a vision to advance man. "I cannot take the credit for the advancement, but I do have a burden to take the lead," he says.
