The founder and president of Habitat for Humanity International, Millard Fuller, here shares his concept of "hammer theology" and his dream of eliminating poverty-ridden housing worldwide.
Interweaving Christian scripture with his narrative, Fuller tells of the dramatic changes Habitat's hands-on ministry has effected in the lives both of the recipients of the organization's quality housing and of the volunteers who build it.
He also writes autobiographically of his own spiritual journey, explaining how he came to start Habitat's phenomenal grassroots ministry. One is left, upon completing the book, with an almost mind-boggling sense of just how far-reaching, substantial and laudable Habitat has become.
By the age of thirty, Millard Fuller had come face-to-face with the reality of the American dream --he was a millionaire workaholic with a marriage on the skids. The cure was a radical one. The Fullers sold their business, donated all but a few thousand dollars to charity, and went in search of a new dream. Twenty years later, Fuller and his wife Linda are sharing that dream: Habitat for Humanity International. This exciting release continues the story of Habitat for Humanity, an organization that helps us make shelter a matter of conscience. Founder Millard Fuller describes the applied theology that directs and energizes this organizations efforts.
