I am just in the beggining of the book, but have already been challenged beyond my comfort zone. After previewing the book, I knew I would be challenged to evaluate my faith in Christ and put hands and feet to my theology.
Every Christian NEEDS to read this book! Marvelous

This book was suggested to me--highly! Can't put it down, as it's very convicting. I was only going to read a few pages to begin with and found myself on page 50!! Sure makes one think about the purpose in their life and what are they doing to influence (even in very small ways) others for Christ. I know a pastor who bought a copy for every family in his congregation. Then he had a series of sermons on it. Richard Stearns (author) is very credible with the stories he leads us into. Amazing book!
I put off reading the book for 6 months, believing it to be an advertisement for World Vision. Instead I found it to be life changing in my ideals and beliefs, biblically speaking. It is full of God's truth and His perspective and value of human life.
