Overrated by Eugene Cho Book Review + #Giveaway!! #OverratedBook

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 invites readers to join him.

About the author:
Eugene is the founder and visionary of One Day’s Wagesa grassroots movement of people, stories, and actions to alleviate extreme global poverty. He is the founder and senior pastor of Quest Church, an urban, multicultural, and multigenerational church in Seattle, Washington. Eugene and his wife, Minhee, have three children.

MY THOUGHTS-Eugene Cho is a new author for me. Many times I read so many fiction and inspirational books that it is nice to get a teaching book. Don't get me wrong, many of the fiction books I enjoy are the ones that have lessons ingrained throughout them. But a flat-out teaching book is great and a much needed pleasure. My main problem is finding ones that will keep my interest piqued. And Overrated is one that sounded interesting enough for me to request.

The whole plot of this book is that we are more interested in reading about how to change the world, and the idea of it, than actually doing anything about it. Sure we love learning about the apostles and how they changed the world they lived in but come on, who really wants to go out and live like they did? Inside this book you will find a confession, some that we can all relate to, and then a wake up call for us all. I found myself pricked at some of the things I read. Our world today knows nothing of living simply and living the life that Jesus calls us to.

This is a book you want everyone in your church to read. It is entertaining but definitely thought provoking. One of my favorite parts was about being tenacious. WOW! This book will open your eyes and help you see things in a new light. Absolutely loved it.

My world changing idea is simple. Be kind to one another. If we reacted in kindness instead of anger or bitterness or frustration...imagine how awesome the world would be.
