    This book is an eye opener with the details regarding things that we already know exist. We all know there is mass poverty in the third world, but this book goes into detail that takes away the impersonalness of the situation and we can not play dumb anymore. This book was a monthly selection for my church book club.

    Too much emphasis on personal ladder-climbing.

    I did not expect to get a lesson on ladder-climbing in order to reach the highest level of World Vision. Besides, all the emphasis is on mostly African problems. Has this writer never heard of the horrible conditions children are living in right here in the USA? I was raised on the adage that "charity begins at home". "Home" means USA. Let's take care of our own problems here first, then we can move on.

    I was challenged by the author's dedication to his ministry with reaching outside our cozy churches. He has definitely caused me to open my eyes to situations I can be a part of.

    This is one book that every Christian needs to read. The call of Christ is to do more than just hit people over the head with half a Gospel.

    I had delayed reading this book, knowing it would change me. When I finally garnered the courage, there was no going back. I began seeing God's command to care for the sick, the lame, the orphans, the homeless, the poor, and the widows in a completely differently light. What if we took the Bible literally? Wouldn't this be it's message?

    "For I was hungry, while you had all you needed and more. I was thirsty, but you drank bottled water. I was a stranger, and you wanted me deported. I needed clothes, but you needed more clothes. I was sick, and you pointed out the behaviors that led to my sickness. I was in prison, and you said I was getting what I deserved."

    God does not have different levels of compassion on his children based on their geographic location, their nationality, or their language. God loves EVERY one of his children, and we are to do the same. This is where Stearns proclaims that our gospel has a hole in it. We as Christians have accepted salvation, but stopped there. We have forgotten that faith requires work.

    I can't recommend this book enough. You'll see the world differently, and as Christians we need our eyes opened to our earthly responsibilities.
