Same Faith, Same God is a deeply intimate book. At times, I felt like I had crept into JW’s study and was looking over his shoulder as he poured out his story. Same Faith, Same God made me divinely uncomfortable. Incredibly rich with personal vulnerability and stories of ridiculous faith, Same Faith, Same God is for every believer who desires a more honest, faith-fueled relationship with Jesus.

I have known Apostle John W. Stevenson for over thirty years. I only know a few men of God that have a strong passion to pursue the will of God for their lives as John does. He has exemplified the strong level of faith that the men and women of the Bible displayed.

Same Faith, Same God: Living in the Realm of Ridiculous Faith will knock your shoes off! The story carries the reader into that realm of living, pulsating, dynamic, and ridiculous faith. Through the high drama of the story, the reader begins to understand how to move beyond letting life set the terms of our time on earth or living life on God’s terms.

John W. Stevenson is genuinely the real deal.
John W. Stevenson is a spiritual son in whom I am well pleased. He is a multi-gifted vessel to whom the Father has entrusted much. However, as it says in scripture, “To whom much is given, much is required.” I have observed his life and ministry through decades of relationship, and I see in him the “same kind of faith…”
Bishop Joseph L. Garlington, Sr
Founding Pastor of Covenant Church of Pittsburgh Presiding Bishop, Reconciliation Ministries International
How to hear from God is our life necessity. Thankfully, John has lived this necessity and is “real” as he describes his life-journey of faith.

Your example of living at this level of faith has not only encouraged me but has shown me a path to live in that same kind of faith. Your lifestyle of worship and lifestyle of faith are an amazing example to many, including me.
