Embrace the Passionate Faith That Will Change Your World
God has something wonderful in store that you might never have considered--a place where your energy and enthusiasm can build toward a fulfilling future. How to find this place? By knowing God more deeply and following the way Jesus demonstrated. But for most of us, our passion is wrapped around earthbound ideals rather than the goals the Holy Spirit wants to accomplish in partnership with us. The result? We grow numb to His calling and gifts.
In this empowering, life-changing book, pastor and author Putty Putman reveals a Kingdom with such compelling purpose that you will long to reorient your walk of faith around it.
Here is your invitation into significance, adventure and wonder far beyond what you have dared to dream.

"In Kingdom Impact, Putty brings fresh revelation and keen insight concerning our destiny as children of the King. He speaks powerfully and prophetically about the historical time we are in and the incredible privilege we have of partnering with the Spirit to make Kingdom impact. As his pastor, I weekly get to watch him live what he so brilliantly writes!"

"Our world is at war, and God's will doesn't enter the world uncontested. In Kingdom Impact, Putty has given you the keys you need to reclaim your world, and our whole world, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Don't waste another day without partnering with Him!"
Laura Harris Smith, C.N.C., M.S.O.M., author, The Healthy Living Handbook and Get Well Soon; host, theTHREE
"First John 4:4 (KJV) says, 'Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.' The word you in that verse is plural. Kingdom Impact awakens readers to this overlooked truth: The Kingdom, empowered by the Spirit, is a collective force guided intelligently by God's unseen hand."
Dr. Michael S. Heiser, scholar-in-residence, Faithlife / Logos Bible Software; author, The Unseen Realm; host, The Naked Bible Podcast
"In the pages of this masterful work, Dr. Putty Putman unpacks the power, purpose and impact of the Kingdom of God for everyday believers. If you want to learn what Jesus meant when He said 'on earth as it is in Heaven' and how to walk in the supernatural daily, this is for you. I encourage every person to read and carefully consider the revelation in this work, which will prepare you for real-life Kingdom ministry."
Dr. Kynan Bridges, author, 90 Days of Power Prayer; senior pastor, Grace & Peace Global Fellowship, Inc.
"Throughout my ministerial career, there are a few teachings I have heard that stand out over the rest. One of them is Putty's teaching on the reformation at hand and the role of 'interdependence' in the middle of what the Father is doing. In this book, you will see what it looks like for all of God's kids to play a role in His work. We must all take seriously what our roles are in advancing God's Kingdom, and in this new book from Putty, he will challenge you to do so through humility, clarity and invitation. I love Putty as an author, pastor and friend. The church I pastor is still talking about the impact that this content is having on them. You will thoroughly enjoy being impacted by the gift on Putty's life."
