Overview

Relentless takes an honest look at some of the tragic problems many people face who are struggling against the odds and fighting a losing battle. But bigger than all these problems are the hearts and desires of the relentless individuals who are joining forces with others and allowing God to do something great in and through them. Do you feel a movement of hope gaining force all around you, drawing you toward making the world a better, safer, healthier, and hope-filled place? Then you may be part of the relentless: people who never of helping the needy because they believe in, and live from, the apostle Paul's words. "We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down but not destroyed" (2 Corinthians 4:8-9).

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With a foreword drawn from a congressional commendation by congressman and former presidential candidate Ron Paul and a few asides on political issues, the reader might be skeptical about the newest book by Convoy of Hope co-founder Donaldson (A Revolution of Compassion). The book, however, is more personal than political, an impassioned brief on the current state of injustice and inequality, replete with anecdotal illustrations of hope in the face of poverty, inequity and hunger. Donaldson brings distant problems home by using everyday examples and down-the-street analogies to move the reader from dispassionate to concerned. Even those familiar with global poverty will find something new and moving. Donaldson provides sound principles and reasonable, practical steps for every individual to do something, and perhaps even become relentlessly determined to defeat ruinous and persistent global economic inequalities. (July)
