Publisher's Description

“I Want to Help. But the World’s Problems Seem So Big. What Can One Person Do?” If you’re passionate about helping others—but aren’t sure where or how to focus your energy—Zealous Love offers information and ideas to help you integrate social justice into your life. The hope woven into every word of Zealous Love is this: God will move and direct you to act on your desire to love your neighbors in need, both globally and locally. Zealous Love introduces you to eight of the world’s most pressing challenges: hunger, unclean water, HIV/AIDS, creation degradation, lack of education, economic inequality, refugees, and human trafficking. But it does more than educate. It provides real, practical, do-able steps anyone can take to help make a difference. Each of the engaging chapters features first-person contributions from people like Dave Batstone (Not for Sale), Scott Todd (Compassion International), Sean Litton (International Justice Mission), Debbie Diederich (World Vision), Shane Claiborne (The Simple Way), Wendell Berry, Marva Dawn, and many others. Each contributor saw a need and decided to do something about it. They aren’t “Super Christians.” They’re just everyday people, like you, who wanted their faith to be more than just good intentions.

    Sometimes reading a book is uncomfortable because it challenges you in such a way that you must either seriously move toward change or stop reading it immediately. Zealous Love is one of those books.Mike and Danae Yankoski have done a fabulous job of thoughtfully pondering the question, "what does it mean to love God, and what does it mean to love my neighbor as myself?"Not only do they do a great job of exposing the horrible reality of all of these issues, they are able to do it in a spirit of grace and humility that doesn't come across preachy, and it didn't make me hate myself by the end of the book!This book is organized in a wonderful way that leaves it readable, interesting, engaging, and motivating. Each section begins with a "briefing" about the problem. These briefings include personal stories from the authors and unbelievable statistics that opened my eyes to the enormity of the problems they were discussing.After each section's briefing, 5 "field notes" are given - 2-3 page personal accounts from individuals who have passionately devoted themselves to addressing the issue being dealt with. A couple of the field notes came across a bit condemning and preachy, but the vast majority were uplifting and inspiring. After the field notes, each section concludes with a section entitled "now what?" Resources for further research and ideas of small steps we can take individually and corporately to address these injustices in the name of Christ left me wanting to act rather than wanting to wallow in the enormity of it all and my own failures.This is a well-written and timely work. I hope that their labor of love in this book sheds light upon these serious issues and spurs the church to act. It would be ideal for Christian book clubs and small groups to use for launching serious discussion and action - the "faith without works is dead" kind of discussion and action. The uncomfortable kind of discussion that changes you.

    Many people know that there are vast injustices in our world. Few people choose to involved themselves in the plight of those afflicted. In Zealous Love, Mike and Danae Yankoski have chosen eight of these injustices and collected writings by people who seek to improve such conditions. They include the contact information for organizations that are involved, allowing their readers to also get involved. Their topics range from human trafficking to hunger and creation degradation to economic inequality.This book provided interesting snapshots from people who are seeking to help the human condition. Often I was left wanting to hear more from these people. An excellent quality of this book is that it lists organizations to contact if the reader wants to get involved. Should the reader be unable to travel the world, there is still plenty to do. The authors do not seek to cast guilt upon us for the relatively rich lifestyle we live, they just point out the plight of others and invite us to help. The book is broken down into sections with short readings which makes it ideal for any reader's schedule.
