For two years Bill Hybels was haunted with the question, "Why do people do what they do?" He wanted to help people transform their dissatisfaction with life into a motivating force for change. He found insight in one likely place and in another unlikely one: in Scripture, through the life of Moses, and in the cartoon character Popeye the Sailorman. Written to move folks out of frustrated apathy into motivated action, you'll find Holy Discontent indispensable for finding, developing, and keeping a passion for vital ministry in God's kingdom. Unabridged. 3 Hours, 24 minutes. 3 CDs. Read by Larry Black.

Whether it is social injustice, AIDS, bad preaching, or wrecked marriages, what breaks the heart of someone who loves God most likely breaks Gods heart tooand it is often these firestorms of frustration that God will use to enlist you in setting what is wrong in this world right!
"The book is peppered with humor and personal illustrations. Hybels doesnt come across as an expert but rather as a fellow traveler cheering us on to find our holy discontent, develop it, and keep it alive. If you find yourself frustrated by injustices in this world and wanting to do more than just complain about it, Hybels encourages: Figure out what you cant stand. Channel your holy discontent energy into helping to fix whats broken in this life." The Dallas Morning News
