It's1998 and Richard Stearns, the new President of World Vision, is sitting across from an orphaned child in Rakai, Uganda, adjusting to the tragic situation in which he finds himself. Just 60 days before, Stearns had been the CEO of Lenox, America's finest tableware company. He drove a Jaguar to work every day and lived in a 10-bedroom house outside Philadelphia. This is the story of how the author left that position as a corporate CEO to lead an international humanitarian organization, and his passionate call for people of faith to change the world by changing the way they look at Scripture.Stearns reminds us that Christians are supposed to love their neighbors, and because our world is so interconnected, the entire planet is our neighborhood. Everyone matters to God. Everyone should matter to us. Using his own life as an example, he explores the hole that exists in our understanding of the Gospel of Christ.
