Richard Stearns, in The Hole in Our Gospel, shares from his experiences as President of World Vision, and as a man wrestling with God’s call on his life. Although I didn’t read every single word in this book, I did enjoy the parts I read. Richard shared many inspiring stories of people around the world. One of my favorite stories involved a Zambian entrepreneur who successfully started and ran 13 different businesses.
Stearns also included plenty of challenging sayings and quotations. Here’s an African saying to chew on: “If you think you are too small to make a difference, try spending the night in a closed room with a mosquito.”
At the end of the book, Stearns includes other books, movies, and things to do to further grow in understanding poverty and doing something about it.
