The answer that changed my life and might just change the world....It's 1998 and Richard Stearns' heart is breaking as he sits in a mud hut and listens to the story of an orphaned child in Rakai, Uganda.His journey to this place took more than a long flight from the United States to Africa. It took answering God's call on his life, a call that hurtled him out of his presidential corner office at Lenox - America's finest tableware company - to this humble corner of Uganda.This is a story of how a corporate CEO faced his own struggle to obey God whatever the cost, and his passionate call for Christians to change the world by actively living out their faith. Using his own journey as an example, Stearns explores the hole that exists in our understanding of the Gospel.Two thousand years ago, 12 people changed the world. Stearns believes it can happen again.More

What a challenge to the modern church !
Ranks in my top 3 of all audio books I ahve lisened to. I ahve never felt as challenegd as this book made me feel. What powerful and poignant stories, what a response from RIchard.
None yet. This is one of a kind. I believe many people are afraid to go where Richard has gone.
His resistance to the job at Wolrd Vision and his eventual 'surrender'. Very compelling
Yes, by all means.
I hope more people read this book. Just thinking of the different world this would be if Christians executed in their own little way what Richard is talking about fills me with excitment, hope and promise. This would be a fantastic world for ALL. God bless you Richard.
