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
