The Hole in Our Gospel: What Does God Expect of Us? the Answer That Changed My Life and Might Just Change the World Hardcover - 2009

by Richard Stearns; Thomas Nelson Publishers


From the publisher

WHAT DOES GOD EXPECT OF US?

Is our faith just about going to church, studyingthe Bible and avoiding the most serious sins or does God expect more?

Have we embraced the whole gospel or a gospel with a hole in it?

Ten years ago, Rich Stearns came face-to-face with that question as he sat in amud hut in Rakai, Uganda, listening to the heartbreaking story of an orphanedchild. Stearns journey there took much more than a long flight to Africa. It tookanswering God s call on his life, a call that tore him out of his corner office at oneof America s most prestigious corporations to walk with the poorest of the poorin our world.

"The Hole in Our Gospel"is the compelling true story of a corporate CEO who setaside worldly success for something far more significant, and discovered the fullpower of the gospel of Jesus Christ to change his own life. He uses his journey to demonstrate how the gospel the whole gospel was always meant to be a world changingsocial revolution, a revolution that begins with us.

ECPA 2010 Christian Book of the Year Award Winner!

Read this compelling story and urgent call for change Richard Stearns is a contemporary Amos crying let justice roll down like waters . Justice is a serious gospel-prophetic mandate. Far too many American Christians for too long a time have left the cause to others. Read it as an altar call.
--Eugene H. Peterson, translator of The Message, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, BC

Rich Stearns calls us to exhilarating obedience to God s life-altering, world-changing command to reflect his love to our neighbors at home and globally. The Hole in Our Gospel is imbued with the hope of what is possible when God s people are transformed to live radically in light of his great love."
--Gary Haugen, President & CEO, International Justice Mission

Richard Stearns is quite simply one of the finest leaders I have ever known.... When he became president of World Vision I had a front row seat to witness the way God used his mind and heart to inspire thousands.... His new book, The Hole In Our Gospel will call you to a higher level of discipleship.... Now is the time...Richard Stearns has the strategy...your move!
--Bill Hybels, Founding and Senior Pastor, Willow Creek Community Church, South Barrington, IL

Rich Stearns has given us a book that makes absolutely clear what God hopes for and expects from each of us.... He reminded me of my personal responsibilities and the priority I must give them and also where life s true rewards and fulfillment are to be found.
--Jim Morris, former executive director, United Nations World Food Program

"World Vision plays a strategic role on our globe. As the largest relief organization in the history of the world, they initiate care and respond to crisis. Rich Stearns navigates this mercy mission with great skill. His book urges us to think again about the opportunity to love our neighbor and comfort the afflicted. His message is timely and needed. May God bless him, the mission of World Vision and all who embrace it."
--Max Lucado, author of 3:16 The Numbers of Hope, Minister of Writing and Preaching, Oak Hills Church, San Antonio, TX

With passionate urging and earnestness, Rich Stearns challenges Christians to embrace the whole Gospel of Jesus Christ by embracing the neediest and most vulnerable among us. After reading the moving stories, the compelling facts and figures, and Stearns excellent application of scripture and his own experiences at World Vision, you will no doubt be asking yourself: What should I do?
--Chuck Colson, Founder, Prison Fellowship"
