What Does God Expect of Us? Is our faith only about going to church, studying the 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? Fifteen years ago Rich Stearns came face-to-face with that question as he sat in a mud hut in Rakai, Uganda, listening to the heartbreaking story of an orphaned child. Stearns's journey there took much more than a long flight to Africa. It took answering God's call on his life, a call that tore him out of his corner office at one of America's most prestigious corporations-to walk with the poorest of the poor in our world. Marking its fifth year, this anniversary edition of The Hole in Our Gospel features new content along with full-color graphics on poverty statistics, a guide for churches on short-term missions and international engagement, and an index of Scripture on poverty, justice, faith in action, and more. The Hole in Our Gospel changed people's lives, and some of those personal accounts also appear in this anniversary edition. Stearns's compelling story demonstrates that the whole gospel was always meant to be a world-changing, social revolution, a revolution that begins with each one of us.

Powerful message

A must read for every person who claims to be a follower of Jesus of Nazareth. The church has forgotten it's purpose. This book is a call to go back to the gospel preached by Jesus; a gospel that brings hope and salvation to all. ( )

Rated: B+
Outstanding work by Richard Stearns, former head of World Vision US. He builds a very personal and factual case for aggressively attacking the problems of poverty worldwide. In is compelling for me. I saw the people of poverty up front and personal when I went to Kenya. We must awaken first world Christians to step up their help as Christ has call us to do. I recommend this book to everyone. ( )

A little preachy in spots, but an eye-opening book, especially if one has never looked at the spread of poverty on earth. Americans truly do have it better than everyone else, and insulated with our inward-looking religious tendencies, we can often forget the needs of the rest of the world. This book is a good reminder that central to the gospel is care for the poor and suffering of the world. What was most of Jesus' ministry composed of? This book provides a clear answer to that. ( )

Just fabulous. So many others have already discussed the content of the book, so I will only add, simply, that I challenge you to read this book and not come away changed. ( )
