Hungry For Life GIVEAWAY!! CLOSED

This giveaway is now CLOSED. Congratulations to missrantsypants for winning.





Hungry For Life
by Dave Blundell

Hungry For Life has articulated a bold vision to see the world transformed by a global movement of compassion and justice evidenced by the eradication of needless suffering. However, this vision will only be realized when selfless values and resulting actions are lived out by an ever increasing number of God's people. The author presents a concise summary of physical poverty in the developing world and spiritual poverty in the developed world. Against the backdrop of these problems, he then paints a biblical picture of a compassionate community of faith, comparing the contemporary Western Church against what it was intended to look like. The final section includes the core value changes necessary for the Church to rediscover its place as a relevant force of love and compassion. This book is a prophetic call for followers of Christ, and specifically their leaders, to move away from religious institutionalism and move toward lives of simplicity and compassion.

About the Author:

Dave Blundell holds a Masters of Arts in International Non-Profit Leadership from Trinity Western University. He served as a pastor in a Christian & Missionary alliance church for six years and was ordained in 1998. Dave later served as the Director of Global Operations for Global Aid Network, leading relief and development projects in numerous countries around the world. In 2003 founded Hungry For Life International, where he works as the Executive Director of a growing staff and volunteers. Dave and his wife, Heidi, have two children: Caleb and Abby.

MY REVIEW

This book made me want to stand up and cheer and hang my head in shame all at the same time. Dave writes  TRUTH with passion and a strong vision for the future. Hungry For Life is a message every person should hear. I found the book very easy to follow and understand but it is quite long and definitely not a "light" read. I think this book would make an excellent group study as well.

I am more than happy to recommend this book to every reader out there!
