Product Description

What is the one aspect of this broken world that, when you see it, touch it, get near it, you just can't stand? Very likely, that firestorm of frustration reflects your holy discontent, a reality so troubling that you are thrust off the couch and into the game. It's during these defining times when your eyes open to the needs surrounding you and your heart hungers to respond that you hear God say, "I feel the same way about this problem. Now, let's go solve it together!"

Bill Hybels invites you to consider the dramatic impact your life will have when you allow your holy discontent to fuel instead of frustrate you. Using examples from the Bible, his own life, and the experiences of others, Hybels shows how you can find and feed your personal area of holy discontent, fight for it when things get risky, and follow it when it takes a mid-course turn. As you live from the energy of your holy discontent, you'll fulfill your role in setting what is wrong in this world right!

Editorial Reviews

'The book is peppered with humor and personal illustrations. Hybels doesn't 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 can't stand. Channel your holy discontent energy into helping to fix what's broken in this life.''

    This book gets to the heart of tapping into and discovering what it is that drives our passion toward carrying out an effective ministry to benefit others. Hybels points out that the road isn't easy, but it's always worth it. He reminds us that we are never alone in our pursuit, we are partnering with God to carry out His purposes on earth.

    What is that one thing that gets to you? That one thing that's wrong with the world that you just can't stand? This is what Bill Hybels calls your Holy Discontent. It's the thing that makes you take action. For some it may be poverty. For others, racial injustice. No matter what your holy discontent may be, Hybels challenges you to find it, feed it, and fight for it.

    This is an excellent book! If I had any doubt what my holy discontent was before I started this book, I don't now. It stayed on my mind the entire time. Bill Hybels gives many examples of people, both well-known and not-so-well-known, who have found, fed, and fought for their holy discontent. These stories are encouraging and uplifting. It's great to have a name for that heart-breaking passion that stirs the soul to action: holy discontent.

    Read it... you won't be sorry.

    It's nice that Mr. Hybels is trying to encourage people to be passionate about doing good things but it was a very self centered book. He mostly talks about You needing to decide to do good things and go out and do them on your own. He fails to mention that you need God and the Holy Spirit to help with that passion. I agree with the other reviews that said it could be a secular book other than the few times it mentions God. I was hoping it would be a book about praying to the Holy Spirit to give us a passion to do good in this world but it is never even mentioned.
