In this episode of the Author Talks with Shaun Tabatt Podcast I interview Chad Norris about his book Signs, Wonders And a Baptist Preacher: How Jesus Flipped My World Upside Down (Chosen Books, 2013). I felt like this was a conversation between two guys chatting over coffee (or in Chad’s case sweet tea). Chad’s honesty and gentleness comes through in the interview just like it does in the book. I look forward to future books from Chad that will dive deeper into the idea of being naturally supernatural.
About the Book:
Demonstrating humor, candor, and personal vulnerability, this Southern Baptist preacher offers an entertaining, non-religious look at the Holy Spirit. He shares transparently, recounting his own history of depression and panic attacks until Jesus rescued him and showed him how to do the works of the Father. As Norris explains, “I had no paradigm for that.” Then he challenges readers to engage with the supernatural.
Even though Jesus said we will do even greater things than he did, we don’t. Norris’ engaging narrative style lowers readers’ defenses and opens their minds to the idea that these “greater things” are more attainable than they think. Because we are loved more than we imagine, says Norris, we are more capable of doing the Father’s works than we have ever considered.
