The Hole in Our Gospel by Richard Stearns - book review

This is a must read for everyone that follows Christ. This book brings the reader back to reality of this world. The reality of this world is many people are living in poverty, many people are living with diseases without cures, many people are living with unclean water and many people are living without food. The Bible makes it very clear what we should do. This book makes it very clear how we missed it but gives us direction on how to help. The need is great but there is a solution. The commission of helping the poor, orphans and widows can be overwhelming for a person but with organizations like World Vision makes it a doable mission.

This book does not get bogged down with a bunch of statistics on the world’s condition. It gives real life stories to illustrate just how lives are changed by doing something.

Also, Mr. Stearns personal journey to Word Vision is very captivating. His life journey not only inspires but motivates the reader.

While reading this book the Haiti earthquake happened. The devastation to that country was unbelievable. Thank God that World Vision was there so people could have away to send their support.
