I’ve been reading since I was a very young child. Since I’m 37 years old now, that means I’ve read a lot of books…but not one (with the great exception, of course, as THE BIBLE) has affected me quite so much as Eugene Cho’s book, OVERRATED. Well, C.S. Lewis’s MERE CHRISTIANITY did, as did T.W. Hunt’s THE MIND OF CHRIST…but this one ranks right up there. Seriously.
This book WILL change the way you think about things – maybe a few things; maybe a lot of things…but it will make you THINK. And PRAY. And SEEK GOD’S FACE. I love books that do that. It’s a must-read for any Christian, certainly, but I think everyone would benefit from reading this book…and maybe those who aren’t believers would benefit more than those of us who are.
But you don’t have to take my word for it. FlyBy Promotions has allowed me to host a giveaway for one free copy of this amazing book. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post by 11:59 PM EST on October 10, 2014. I’ll notify the winner that weekend. When you comment, make sure you at least leave me your email, so that I can contact you if you win. (I will NOT contact you about anything unrelated to this giveaway. I don’t do spam).
Here’s a bit about the book:
We all want to change the world, but as pastor Eugene Cho found out, it takes more than just desire. It takes action. In this personal confession, he encourages readers to discover a practical discipleship that begins with the recognition that changing the world starts with changing ourselves.
Many people today talk about justice, but are they living justly? They want to change the world, but are they being changed themselves? Eugene Cho shares his story, a messy, painful story of being more in love with the ideas behind the actions than counting the cost and being a world-changer in action. Because everyone loves justice and compassion, but few have taken it upon themselves to truly live it out in their own lives. Cho is still on that journey to discover what it means, and he invites readers to join him.
