In short this book is about being able to go out and help people through Christ either by what you have gone through or are passionate about.
Each chapter has a real life story, a story from the life of Jesus, a challenge for you to do, practical steps online to start ministries for the certain area, and a prayer.
Some of the real life stories are pretty miraculous and not very common, and others are things you could see everyday if you were to look in the right ( or wrong ) places. I did not loo

A shallow but good book to get one started on "doing something". There's some heartwarming stories that are nice and even one of them doesn't have a "happy" ending which was a pleasant surprise. Ultimately one needs to go to the website to dig deeper but a nice easy read.

I had to stop reading this book after the author stated "If the Bible is reliable enough..." (pg 61) and said "The only way you will do greater things than Jesus did is if you exercise faith in the faithful promises of God and His Word." (pg 55)
YUCK:( Not possible to be greater than Jesus!
The okay parts of this book seem superficial and lacking real meat to chew on. Needless to say, I'm disappointed!

I am just at the beginning of this book, and one of my goals this year is to be able to Do Something for my community by applying it through Christ. This book is a start because we are beginning a series at my church (The Rock) come next week about doing something...

Well, this book was really a 2 star for me all the way through the final chapter (Rico) which I did find compelling, challenging and insightful. That chapter and ending make it a "Liked" for me.

A bit too American, but some interesting concepts and inspirational stories.
