Catherine Brown’s testimony & early years
For those in the late teens and twenties, this book will show how early passion is lost through wrong choices. More importantly, Catherine shows how ‘those who hunger and thirst’ will be ‘filled’. There is a generation rising up who are looking to radically pursue their God, and who enjoy and celebrate his loving pursuit of them.
One would be hard pushed to find a person who would not derive some significant enjoyment and benefit from reading Catherine Brown’s book, “The Normal The Deep and The Crazy”. As the foreword indicates, it is written from the stuff of real life. Indeed the book is a welcome companion on our journey. From those who have bought and read the first copies of the book, released in May, come reports of people receiving great encouragement, fresh insights, and a new sense of hope and purpose for their life. Avoiding any sense of sensationalism, Catherine recalls and recounts a story of pain and humor, trial and error, depression and joy. Every story, like every life, is unique, yet we gain so much as we encounter a life that is shared.
Although the book does not set out to ‘teach’, one cannot help picking up truth, or ‘seeing’ old truth from another angle. The discovery and rediscovery of God, that is Catherine’s experience, will touch your heart and challenge any temptation to settle for mere religious observance. For too many following Jesus has become a hobby that must ‘fit in’ with life.
Catherine Brown demonstrates just how close God can be to those who hear his heartbeat and stop to listen to his voice.
For those in the late teens and twenties, this book will show how early passion is lost through wrong choices. More importantly, Catherine shows how ‘those who hunger and thirst’ will be ‘filled’. There is a generation rising up who are looking to radically pursue their God, and who enjoy and celebrate his loving pursuit of them. Catherine Brown is a forerunner for these extreme prayers, worshippers, and servants. “The Normal, The Deep, and The Crazy” will serve them well.
It certainly is a good starting place. So, at whatever stage you are at in life, this book will stimulate the memories, the mind, and the heart. Read and enjoy.
“With a whole heart I gladly endorse the content of this inspiring book. I trust it will do for you what it did for me. After reading ‘The Normal, The Deep and The Crazy’, I found myself more in love with our Father God who desires to see restoration happen in the lives of countless numbers of warriors-in-waiting. I sense the Holy Spirit saying, “Come out of your caves! The best is yet ahead of you! Just as I have done in the life of this broken vessel – so I will I do for your!”
