Believing Is Only the Beginning Do you long for a deeper sense of meaning and purpose in your life? Do you believe all the right things, go to church, and faithfully read your Bible, still feeling that something is missing? You may be right. Two thousand years ago Jesus gave an urgent assignment to his followers right before he left. At its essence it was not just an invitation to believe; it was a bold call to action. It was a challenge to go into the world to reclaim, reform, and restore it for Christ. Simply stated, the message of this book is that God has invited you to join him in this world-changing mission. And if you are not personally participating in God’s great endeavor, you could be missing the very thing he created you to do. Best-selling author Rich Stearns invites you not just to stand on the sidelines but to get into the game. That is when the adventure begins. “Unfinished, just might challenge everything you thought you understood about your Christian faith. Unfinished is a call to finish the job Christ gave his church to do. If every Christian read this book and took it seriously, the world would never be the same again.”—Bill Hybels, senior pastor, Willow Creek Community Church; and chairman, Willow Creek Association “Just when I’ve gotten comfortable with my faith, here comes Rich Stearns, reminding me what matters and who God loves and why. Just when my world is the way I want it, Rich reminds me the world is not the way God wants it. Hungry families. Malnourished kids. Just when I dare think my work is done, Rich reminds me that we are just getting started. First in The Hole in Our Gospel, now in Unfinished, Rich gives me a kind, gracious kick. Thanks, Rich. (I think.)”—Max Lucado, pastor and best-selling author “Okay, admit it: sometimes you wonder . . . don’t you? Is this it? The life you’re living. Is there more? From his journey in corporate and nonprofit leadership—in very good causes—Rich Stearns concludes there is, indeed, more. More purpose. More meaning. More life. In Unfinished you will discover how your life can be about more.”—Elisa Morgan, author; speaker; publisher, FullFill; and president emerita, MOPS International “Rich Stearns has done it again! In this winsome, engaging, and challenging book, he calls us back to some of the key issues of what it means to be followers of Christ in a world full of distractions and false gods. This is a book for everyone, about finding the place of our calling in God’s global mission. It is a book about fulfillment, adventure, and a lifetime of transformation. It made me hungry for more of the life God has in store for us.”—Dr. Stephen Hayner, president, Columbia Theological Seminary “Your story can be a part of the Great Story. Rich Stearns knows the story and lives the story. Unfinished may call you to the greatest chapter of your life.”—John Ortberg, senior pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church; and author, Who Is This Man? “The kingdom is both already and not yet, the work of Christ both finished and to be completed. Stearns reminds readers of every Christian’s responsibility to live on mission, in light of Jesus’ example and call. Richard shows us by his life, the ministry he leads, and the passion of this book that there is much to be done and we are to be a part of God’s grand plan.”—Ed Stetzer, president, LifeWay Research; and author, Subversive Kingdom “Every generation of Christians needs a wake-up call to remind us of how serious and strenuous are the demands of discipleship. May Rich Stearns’s Unfinished be that alarm for our time.”—David Neff, editorial vice president, Christianity Today

What Does God Expect of Us? Is our faith only about going to church, studying the Bible, and avoiding the most serious sins—or does God expect more? Have we embraced the whole gospel or a gospel with a hole in it? Fifteen years ago Rich Stearns came face-to-face with that question as he sat in a mud hut in Rakai, Uganda, listening to the heartbreaking story of an orphaned child. Stearns’s journey there took much more than a long flight to Africa. It took answering God’s call on his life, a call that tore him out of his corner office at one of America’s most prestigious corporations—to walk with the poorest of the poor in our world. Marking its fifth year, this anniversary edition of The Hole in Our Gospel features new content along with full-color graphics on poverty statistics, a guide for churches on short-term missions and international engagement, and an index of Scripture on poverty, justice, faith in action, and more. The Hole in Our Gospel changed people’s lives, and some of those personal accounts also appear in this anniversary edition. Stearns’s compelling story demonstrates that the whole gospel was always meant to be a world-changing, social revolution, a revolution that begins with each one of us. ECPA 2010 Christian Book of the Year Award Winner! “Read this compelling story and urgent call for change—Richard Stearns is a contemporary Amos crying ‘let justice roll down like waters. . . .’ Justice is a serious gospel-prophetic mandate. Far too many American Christians for too long a time have left the cause to ‘others.’ Read it as an altar call.” —Eugene H. Peterson, translator of The Message; and Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College “Rich Stearns calls us to exhilarating obedience to God’s life-altering, world-changing command to reflect his love to our neighbors at home and globally. The Hole in Our Gospel is imbued with the hope of what is possible when God’s people are transformed to live radically in light of his great love.” —Gary Haugen, president & CEO, International Justice Mission “Richard Stearns is quite simply one of the finest leaders I have ever known. . . . When he became president of World Vision, I had a front row seat to witness the way God used his mind and heart to inspire thousands. . . . The Hole in Our Gospel will call you to a higher level of discipleship. . . . Now is the time . . . Richard Stearns has the strategy . . . your move!” —Bill Hybels, founding and senior pastor, Willow Creek Community Church “World Vision plays a strategic role on our globe. As the largest relief organization in the history of the world, it initiates care and responds to crisis. Rich Stearns navigates this mercy mission with great skill. His book urges us to think again about the opportunity to love our neighbor and comfort the afflicted. His message is timely and needed. May God bless him, the mission of World Vision, and all who embrace it.” —Max Lucado, pastor and best-selling author “An urgent, powerful summons to live like Jesus. Stearns weaves solid theology, moving stories, and his own journey of faith into a compelling call to live the whole Gospel. Highly recommended!” —Ronald J. Sider, president, Evangelicals for Social Action; and author of Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger “With passionate urging and earnestness, Rich Stearns challenges Christians to embrace the whole Gospel of Jesus Christ by embracing the neediest and most vulnerable among us. After reading the moving stories, the compelling facts and figures, Stearns’s excellent application of the Scripture, and his own experiences at World Vision, you will no doubt be asking yourself: What should I do?” —Chuck Colson, founder, Prison Fellowship

"إن كنت ترغب في أن تعي مجدداً متعة الأكل، معجزة الطعام، والقوة التي يملكها كل واحد منا من خلال الطريقة التي نحيا بها حياتنا، قدم لنفسك خدمة. احصل على نسخة من كتاب (حصاد من أجل الأمل)؛ أنا أعدك بأن حياتك سوف تتغير بطرق لا تحصى، وجميعها للأفضل... إنه أحد تلك الكتب العظيمة النادرة بحق والتي بإمكانها تغيير العالم. - جون روبنز، مؤلف كتاب (ثورة الطعام) وكتاب (غذاء من أجل أميركا جديدة). تقوم جين غودول في كتاب (حصاد من أجل الأمل) بإقناعنا بأنه يتوجب علينا أن نقيم علاقة جديدة مع الطعام، علاقة تكون ملهمة ولذيذة، وتحافظ في الوقت ذاته على التقاليد وتشكل عملاً من أعمال الحماية. - أليس ووترز، مؤلفة كتاب (فاكهة شي بانيس) وكتاب (خضراوات شي بانيس). أُحب هذا الكتاب؛ إن روح جين غودول السخية والمرحة تطغى على كل صفحة آسرة منه. (حصاد من أجل الأمل) حافل بالملاحظات التي توسع آفاق العقل... إنه نداء شخصي لطيف لإيقاظنا وهو يقول لنا أن بإمكاننا استعادة حكمة أجسادنا. - فرانسيس مورلاپي، مؤلفة كتاب (حد الأمل) و(غذاء من أجل كوكب صغير). إن لم تكن قد فكرت في الطعام الذي تتناوله والخيارات التي تقوم بها - وحتى وإن كنت قد فعلت - فهذا كتاب مهم يجب أن تقرأه. - ديبورا ماديسون، مؤلفة كتاب (الطهي النباتي للجميع) و(نكهات محلية: الطهي والأكل من أسواق مزارعي أميركا). مدخل شفاف إلى عالم الطعام، حافل بالحكايا، يكشف كيف يؤثر إنتاج طعامنا علينا وكيف تؤثر خياراتنا على البيئة... اعتبر هذا الكتاب قائمة التسوق الخاصة بك. - بول هوكن، مؤلف كتاب (علم بيئة التجارة) أنت تسنح لك الفرصة لتغيير كوكب الأرض ثلاث مرات يومياً. أنت بوسعك أن تغيره باعتماد طرق مهمة، إذا ما اتبعت فقط بعض النصائح الحكيمة لهذا الكتاب. - بيل ماكبين، مؤلف كتاب (البيت المتجول: مسيرة طويلة عبر أكثر المشاهد الطبيعية مدعاة للتفاؤل) جين غودول: هي المرجع الأول في العالم لقردة الشمبانزي. وشخصية عالمية معروفة من دعاة المحافظة على الموارد الطبيعية. أنشأت مؤسسة جين غودول، وحازت على جوائز متميزة عدة في المجالات العلمية. والدكتورة غودول هي أيضاً مؤلفة كتب كثيرة لاقت استحساناً بما فيها الكتاب الأكثر رواجاً (داعٍ للأمل). المؤلفة الرئيسة لهذا الكتاب هي ( جين غودول) المعروفة دوليًّا بأم الشمبانزي؛ نظرًا لدراستها المتعمقة له ولاهتمامها الكبير بمصيره. وإذا كان الشمبانزي هو مدخل هذه الناشطة والعالمة الكبيرة للاهتمام بالبيئة والغذاء، إلا أنها في هذا الكتاب ـ ومعها مؤلفان مشاركان ـ تتقدم خطوات أبعد لتطرح السؤال البيئي الأشمل: (كيف يمكننا تغيير عالم تُتَّخَذ فيه القرارات التي تؤثر في صحتنا وصحة كوكبنا من أجل أن تقدم الشركات الجشعة بيان النمو الاقتصادي في الاجتماع القادم لحملة الأسهم؟). والكتاب بأسلوبه البسيط، المفعم بالمشاعر، وعبر 19 فصلاً، هو محاولة للإجابة عن هذا السؤال المهم وعن عشرات غيره، وهو نداء صارخ للملايين من اللامبالين. وبرنامج عمل عام، أو نافذة وعي لنا جميعًا؛ لعلنا نستطيع أن نعيد ارتباطنا بالطبيعة التي نحن جزء منها، وبالطعام الذي نأكله بوصفه نظامًا غذائيًا يعتمد بصورة أكبر على الطبيعة، ولاسيما في هذه المرحلة الحرجة من التاريخ البشري حيث نوشك على تبديد أو تسميم جميع الموارد الغذائية التي تمدنا بالحياة خلال نصف القرن المقبل. العبيكان للنشر
