Soren Kierkegaard once said that 'the gospel is seldom heard; it is overheard.' Best-selling author and modern-day prophet Tony Campolo believes that one of the best ways to tell the grand story of the gospel is to tell stories of everyday life where God is at work... just as Jesus did during His earthly ministry. In Stories that Feed Your Soul, a collection of stories from Tony's life-long friendships and international travels, readers will 'overhear' the gospel at work around the world. Set around Romans 8, the stories center on eight gospel themes: freedom of condemnation, new life in Christ, intimacy with God, the call to rescue creation, living with hope, praying in the Spirit, God's plans for us and the assurance we need. Whether humorous or poignant, each one is an unforgettable echo of God at work around us and within us.
