"More purpose. More meaning. More life. In Unfinished you discover how your life can be about more."
--Elisa Morgan, author; speaker; publisher, www.fulfill.org

"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

So you believe in God. Now what?

Just before he left, Jesus sent his follower into the world with a revolutionary mission: to change the world by proclaiming God's truth and demonstrating his incredible love. But the single task he gave us to accomplish remains unfinished.

Rich Stearns takes us on a breathtaking journey to rediscover the critical mission of Christ in our world today and the richness of God's calling on our lives.

Why are we here, what is our purpose, and where do we fit in the bigger story that God is writing? How should our faith affect our careers, our money, our families, and our lives? And why does it matter? We will find our deepest purpose only when we discover the unique role God created for us to play in his unfolding story.

Like his previous work, this follow-up to the 2010 ECPA Book of the Year, The Hole in Our Gospel, points to a deficiency in the Christian gospel. But while Stearns, the president of the relief agency World Vision, earlier focused on the gaping hole in the lives of Christians who only accept the “ticket to heaven” belief, he now fleshes out the way Christians are called to be revolutionaries who must storm the gates of hell—he finds evil personified in world atrocities—in order to open the doors to the kingdom of God. He explicates Bible texts to explain that Jesus calls upon his followers to make disciples and further the kingdom. Stearns exhorts churches to stop looking inward and begin calling people to act with the love and justice of God to radically change culture and society. Stearns, who chose to leave corporate leadership to lead the nonprofit, has signed over all royalties to World Vision. He has written an inspiring, action-oriented book that is long overdue in evangelical circles, bringing social justice, evangelism, and kingdom together in a dynamic and logical exhortation. Agent: Lee Hough, Alive Communications. (Apr. 30)
