The Hole in Our Gospel by Richard Stearns

In The Hole in Our Gospel, Richard Stearns tells the agonizing story of how God lead him to his current position as president of World Vision as he wrestled with the decision to leave behind the worldly success he'd worked so hard for. 
The heartbreaking stories of the people and places he's encountered in his work with World Vision accompanied with a section of full color photos makes those people and places come alive and their plight much more real and close to home. Stearns ask the question What does God expect of us?, and the book is all about the answer that changed his life and might just change the world.

The Hole in our Gospel is a thought provoking book full of facts and statistics supporting the need for the work of relief organizations and what we can do to help. He uses supporting scripture throughout along with a scripture index and has included a study guide to use along with the book. Also added is a QandA with Stearns' wife Renee, and several chapters on what we can do by partnering with World Vision and additional resources to use.
