It isn't often when you come across a book that you can't put down. And much less, one that changes your life.
Well, this book took me by surprise. When Adéye told me a little of what it was about, I thought, Nah, I just don't think I'll like this. But I was wrong. The Hole In Our Gospel not only changed me, it gutted me from inside out.
Here's what the synopsis on the website has to say about it:
This is a story of how a 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. Believing that the “good news” is more than a private transaction between God and us, Stearns challenges readers with this question: What does God expect of us? Two thousand years ago, twelve people changed the world. Stearns believes it can happen again.
It's intriguing. It's new (yet old). It's challenging. And it will haunt you if you let the Holy Spirit let it.
If you've never read it, you'll love it. If you've already read it, you'll want to win it to give to someone who needs it.
