“What should I do?”
Long before the author posed the question for its readers, in the last pages of The Hole In Our Gospel, I had already written it in the margins. Another question that surfaced for me throughout my read of this book was: “what is a proper balance between evangelism and social action?”
Richard Stearns, President

I was challenged by this book; however, I was concerned that some people who read its pages could move to the extreme of taking care of persons physical needs without ever making a point to share the message of Christ. The message of Christ is the ultimate goal.
There does need to be a balance in missions work between meeting the immediate needs of those we are trying to minister to and presenting the gospel message. The Hole in Our Gospel is a great way to be reminded of that need and also be reminded of just how blessed we are in this country and a response to our blessing should be to share with those less fortunate.
Take the time to get a copy of this book and be challenged as I was and will continue to be.
