The Hole in Our Gospel by Richard Stearns

I was excited to be able to review The Hole in Our Gospel book by Richard Stearns. He is the president of World Vision. In this book he poses the question, "What does God want from us?" He states that he believes the hole in our gospel is from lack of following through with people once they are saved. He focuses on the poorest of those in our world and tries to show that we need to be doing more for them.

I enjoyed reading about his personal calling and what got him to where he is today. The book was hard for me to get through because he used alot of statistics that seemed to be repetitive. He most definitely has an agenda with this book and seems to want you to believe what he does rather than have a feel for yourself. I did not like this part of the book.

Overall I thought the book was worth reading. It made me rethink a few things and also made me appreciate all that God has done for me even more.

I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of the book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive reveiw. All opinions expressed are my own. I was not compensated for this review.
