Despite knowing the truth and having a relationship with Jesus Christ, many Christians feel like something is missing. They read the Bible regularly, participate in church life and community and give of their time and resources, but still lack a sense of purpose and mission in their daily lives. If you're feeling like something is missing, you may be right.
Richard Stearns, president of World Vision and author of The Hole in Our Gospel, believes that what many Christians need is a reawakening of God's purpose and passion in their lives. In Unfinished: Believing Is Only the Beginning, Stearns explores the invitation God offers to each of us to be a part of His greater work in the world. Sharing lessons from Scripture and inspiring stories of how real people are making a difference, Unfinished will show you that God has a dream for this world that Jesus called the kingdom of God. Discover how the journey into your heart's cry for significance and purpose can be answered by uniting with God's vision for His eternal kingdom.

"Unfinished might just challenge everything you thought you understood about your Christian faith...If every Christian read this book and took it seriously, the world would never be the same again."
Bill Hybels, senior pastor Willow Creek Community Church
"Just when I've gotten comfortable with my faith, here comes Rich Stearns, reminding me what matters and who God loves and why...Just when I dare think my work is done, Rich reminds me that we are just getting started."
Max Lucado, pastor and best-selling author
"More purpose. More meaning. More life. In Unfinished you discover how your life can be about more."
Elisa Morgan, author; speaker; publisher, www.fulfill.org
"Every generation of Christians needs a wake-up call to remind us of how serious and strenuous are the demands of discipleship. May Rich Stearns's Unfinished be that alarm for our time."
David Neff, editorial vice president, Christianity Today
So you believe in God. Now what?
Just before he left, Jesus sent his follower into the world with a revolutionary mission: to change the world by proclaiming God's truth and demonstrating his incredible love. But the single task he gave us to accomplish remains unfinished.
Rich Stearns takes us on a breathtaking journey to rediscover the critical mission of Christ in our world today and the richness of God's calling on our lives.
Why are we here, what is our purpose, and where do we fit in the bigger story that God is writing? How should our faith affect our careers, our money, our families, and our lives? And why does it matter? We will find our deepest purpose only when we discover the unique role God created for us to play in his unfolding story.

Sandy5 Stars Out Of 5Inspiring ReadAugust 15, 2016SandyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Loved this book. It informed, inspired, humbled and challenged me to think differently about my faith. The title says it all "Unfinished: Believing is only the beginning"
WT5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent ! perfect title when viewed against what Jesus said just before he died.November 23, 2015WTQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0i like this book a lot, and it has re-inspired me to share my faith more regularly. The chapter on being a "decider" vs a "disciple" really hit home and became one of those spiritual "ah ha's" for me. This book should be required reading for all Christians & all seekers who are serious about a relationship with God.
SaraG4 Stars Out Of 5UnfinishedJune 30, 2013SaraGI just finished reading Richard Stearns Unfinished. Overall, I enjoyed this book. It's a call for individuals and the church to the Great Commission. Stearns believes the American church has become too relaxed in living out their faith. He believes that we have lost our sense of urgency with the Great Commission, both as individuals and as a church. We have been left as Jesus' ambassadors in this world, but we are not rising to the mission.
My husband enjoyed his discussion of our spiritual GPS in the chapter on "Called for a Purpose" - how we need to commit, pray, prepare, obey, act and trust. I thought his chapter on "Outposts of the Kingdom" was a good chapter, referring to the church.
He also includes a study guide and shares ways we can live out our faith in the closing chapters. I would recommend this book.
(I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their booksneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.)
markbrayeTemiskaming Shores, Ontario, CanadaAge: 25-34Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5UnfinishedJune 21, 2013markbrayeTemiskaming Shores, Ontario, CanadaAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4from Richard Stearns, author of the bestselling <em>The Hole In Our Gospel</em>, comes his next book <em>Unfinished</em>.
if books had taglines, like movies, <em>Unfinished</em> would have two...
"Believing is only the beginning."
"So you believe in God. Now what?"
<em>Unfinished</em> seeks to promote the proclamation and practice of the Kingdom of God. it seeks to wrestle with and answer challenging questions about our lives, careers, money, families, and purpose in life.
Stearns is an excellent storyteller and writer. he engages the Bible and the real world with passion and compassion, hoping that his readers and the Church will join in with God's mission in the world today.
<em>Unfinished</em> is a challenging read. wonderfully written, it's a thought-provoking book that will make you see and think about things differently. it may push you and make you uncomfortable, or it may affirm and confirm some things for you. it did all four for me.
