Winner of the Christian Author Award Praise for Get Up God is Not Finished with You "I believe it is a good time for such a message. For some it may spell all the difference between hope and despair. There are those who speak easily of stumbling and recovery and others who sternly bar the door against the recovery of full fellowship, complete trust and a genuine new beginning. ... Who can tell the power of the cross better than one who has been driven there because they had nowhere else to go? Who can tell of homecoming and the kindness shown by the Father to the returning son? It's time they came home " -Brian Thompson - Friend and Minister, UK Pastor Steve Bragg's book, Get Up God is Not Finished with You tells the miraculous and inspiring story of his journey from model Christian pastor, to a fallen and rebellious sinner, back to a redeemed and restored minister who's still a recovering work in progress. Though author Steven Bragg admits he is no Saul/Apostle Paul, he relates to Paul's rebellion from God and the Christian faith. Falling further and further from his faith and teachings, Bragg fulfilled the desires of his flesh when it came to turning away from God and toward drugs and alcohol. He refers to himself as a possible "close second to the 'Public Sinner Number One'." The message he hopes to share by telling his story is that even though he was a great sinner, backslider, and reprobate, through his redemption and God's tremendous grace, something substantial and unique happened with his life. Bragg says that God ultimately pulled him from living a life in sin and saved him out of his rebellion, thus restoring him completely to his ministry, now stationed in the Philippines. He hopes to encourage others who may be in the same struggle he once found himself. Bragg believes whole-heartedly that it is none other than the Lord God Almighty, through the power of the Holy Spirit who loves, rescues, and restores us from our fall.
