The Revolution: A Field Manual for Changing Your World
A revolution is happening in our generation. We see the strife in the world as generations before ours could not--whether a terrorist attack or a tsunami, we watch the devastation of such tragedies play-by-play, and it moves us. But how do we apply our energy to alleviate the suffering of those around us? Especially when we're busier than ever and less able to give of our ...more

If you have been living under a rock for all of your life, you may find this book ok, if not skip it altogether because it is just a group of whiners talking about the trials and tribulations of the world (seems to me mostly outside of the US) and encourages you to donate money and time. It also suggests you pray and has some decent prayers for this, however the rest is just wishful thinking and in my opinion propaganda to build up very few non profit companies.

Recommends it for: anyone who wants to expand their worldview beyond the American Bubble
I read this book while my now-husband was on a missions trip in Romania in the summer of 2006. The stories range from heartbreaking to infuriating to hopeful, but all are inspiring. Whether you are a liberal or conservative politically, it will open your eyes to the problems in this world and the ways in which you can choose to take action to do your part in solving them.
This is a great book full of information and ideas! Each topic is written by a different person who gives insight to their mission. I cried several times reading this book. It's impossible to learn the atrocities going on in the world and how Americans enable it, and not do something about it...at least pray!
This one was great with lots of information about how to actually do something. If you get done reading this and say you don't know how to take action then there is something wrong with you. I wish it had challenged my a bit more though. I got to spend a couple weeks in Alaska with one of the authors, Peter Illyn, who taught me that it's not a hippy thing to care about the earth.
There were some chapters I really wish had been written by different people; however, on the whole, this book was really convicting. It challenges the reader to live in a more God-centered way, which is something I have to admit I had been neglecting.
