New York Times best-selling author Matthew Barnett appeared on NBC’s TODAY Show on Sept. 5 to promote his new book, God’s Dream for You (Thomas Nelson). The new book, Barnett’s third, released on Sept. 10.
“I could not put it down,” host Kathie Lee Gifford said of the book. “It’s a phenomenal book.”
Barnett is also founder of the Los Angeles-based Dream Center—a service-oriented church that is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. His recent #Serve24 initiative—where volunteers serve the poor, homeless and needy in inner cities across the globe for 24 hours straight—has also drawn publicity in recent weeks.
This service-oriented mind-set is a key element in God’s Dream for You.
“To serve others and see how that translates into God’s blessings for our lives is amazing,” Barnett said. “By giving to others and by serving those around us, we then are a vessel for God to reveal His ultimate dream for our lives.”
