Overview

Christians who are passionate about helping others---but aren't sure where or how to focus their energy---will find much to love about Zealous Love. Authors Mike and Danae Yankoski have written just what Christians need to integrate compassion and justice into their lives.
'Our hope,' they write, 'is that God will work through this book ... to help direct your life so that you can act on tangible concern for neighbors in need, both globally and locally. That's the prayer knit into every sentence, every word, of Zealous Love.'
Zealous Love introduces eight of the world's most pressing challenges: hunger, unclean water, HIV/AIDS, creation degradation, lack of education, economic inequality, refugees, and human trafficking. But it does more than educate. It provides real, practical, do-able steps anyone can take to help make a difference.

    Looking for ways to serve?- Check out this book!

    Are you looking for a new focus for your passion for helping others? This is the perfect book to help you decide what your new focus will be. Zealous Love focuses on human trafficking, unclean water, refugees, hunger, lack of education, creation degradation, HIV/AIDS and economic inequality.

    As you read this book the contributors will inspire you to help your neighbors both locally and globally by telling their story about their issue. Some of the contributors are Dave Batstone, Scott Todd, Sean Litton and Marva Dawn.

    About the author- Mike and Danae Yankoski enjoy backpacking, hiking, good books, among many other things in the Pacific Northwest with their dog. Mike has written, Under the Overpass. Danae has written Crazy Love and The Forgotten God with Francis Chan.

    My thoughts-

    I thought this book was very good. I enjoyed having something I can hold in my hands that lists and describes different social issues and gives me different ideas on how I can make a difference.

    The lay-out of the book was very good with the introduction of the issue, four field notes (written by different people) and the "Now What" section. My favorite part of the book, was the "Now What" section at the end of each issues because it made me think and gave me ideas on how I could help. The sections of "Now What," were reflect, respond, spread the word, share your ideas and discover more (websites).

    Would I recommend this book? Yes! This book is perfect for anybody who is interested in learning where the help is needed and how to do it. It is perfect for organizations, young and old.

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Zondervan. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.

    An incredibly inspiring and practical read...

    Like many who desire to have an impact on the world we live in, I'm often paralyzed by the many needs of those around me. I know it's my responsibility and desire to act and to give, but it's hard to know where I should invest my gifts and time. In pinpointing the eight areas of greatest need- the most intense challenges in social justice across the world- Mike and Danae Yankoski are helping to pave my way to action. Packed with personal anecdotes, the insights of those facing the issues head on, and all the necessary facts, Zealous Love is the perfect book for those who long to be inspired and directed...
