Quote from the Book Robin Gave Me for my Birthday

“Proclaiming the whole gospel, then, means much more than evangelism in the hopes that people will hear and respond to the good news of salvation by faith in Christ. It also encompasses tangible compassion for the sick and the poor as well as biblical justice, efforts to right the wrongs that are so prevalent in our world…The whole gospel is truly good news for the poor, and it is the foundation for a social revolution that has the power to change the world.” 

- Richard Stearns, President of World VisionThe Hole in Our Gospel (Thomas Nelson, 2009)
