Written from the life and faith of Adam Gellert, ‘Activation’ hands readers the bold opportunity to embark on the greatest adventure they’ll ever experience – the adventure of a new life at the hands of God. Adam is himself a recipient of an “activation” from God, and is now passionate about sharing his story and its opportunity with millions of people around the world.

“I am ecstatic that my personal story of how God activated my life, and the lessons that apply to all of us, was selected to receive the prestigious Henri Award,” said Gellert. “It’s rewarding to know that the judges found this book to be of the quality deserving of such an award, in addition to having a message that resonates with readers.”
