This will change your life!

by Kristi on May 3, 2012

Every chapter of this book compelled me to rethink and evaluate my attitude and conduct towards the poor. My responsibility as a Christian toward those in need, and the value I place on my own possessions has been challenged. Sure appreciate the vulnerability and genuineness of the author.

Book Review: The Hole in Our Gospel

by KeikiHendrix on Oct 6, 2009

I began to read this book and was almost in tears before Chapter Two. If you have a heart for missions or if you see the need for more Christian action and not words, you should read this book. He is not an unknown man. Richard Stearns was CEO of a Lenox, Inc. when something or better said Someone opened his eyes to the great need of our time. In The Hole in Our Gospel: The Answer that Changed My Life and Might Just Change the World, Richard Stearns writes of how he came to be the CEO of World Vision, an international Christian humanitarian organization. What is it that power, prestige, a financial stability can never provide? The satisfaction of knowing you are seeking out those that Jesus sought during His earthly ministry. This book is a call to action for those who believe that their lives are examples of success while they turn a blind eye to the needs of the people of this world. By revealing sins of omission as well as sins of commission, Stearns strongly takes the position that it is no longer acceptable to turn away from the hungry, the poor or the underprivileged. It should not be to Christians and it is not to God, as stated in Proverbs 24:12 If you say, ?Surely we did not know this,? Does not He who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps your soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds? My personal take on this book was I was invigorated, challenged, and simply grateful to read a Christian book where the author is actually taking Jesus at His word and following His example. Our airwaves and bookstores are flooded with the principles of prosperity. I also loved the great selections of quotes used throughout the book from some of the greatest minds like St. Francis of Assisi and C. S. Lewis. This book would be a great compliment to any library. I have donated my review copy to my home church. I recommend it highly for those who seek a deeper walk.

What does God expect of us?

by booksforall on Jun 24, 2009

I picked up this book last weekend and could hardly put it down. The writer is an engaging story teller with the ability to ask the thought provoking question: What does God expect of us? in a way that really makes one consider the question, personally. One of the top reads of this year!
