From My Bookshelf

A Review:
The Hole In Our Gospel by Richard Stearns

This is a personal story about one man’s journey from the top of the business world to the feet of Jesus. Richard Stearns shares his account of what it is like to “have it all” and still not have enough. We experience, with him, the process that led him to become the head of World Vision which in turn leads us to his compelling case for our involvement in real Christianity.

I felt that this book was a reminder that we practice what Stearns calls the Great Omission. Our personal success oriented gospel doesn’t work well when we are charged to be our brother’s keeper and the Church as a whole suffers greatly for it. This book will both make you think and motivate you to do something with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I offer two challenges, read this book and then do something about it.
