what does it take to change a life?
This rich, compact collection of stories from the field of the Gospel provides insightful reflections on the possibilities that can happen in any church when just one person’s life is changed, a chain reaction that can multiply one miracle into many more. With the help of the Rev. Dr. Sherry Adams, the Rev. Canon Mark Eldredge narrates his experience as a rector in an urban city with unexpected, God-appointed moments of relationship with the neglected, the unique, and the often left behind. Eldredge adds illuminating commentary and practical applications to these Gospel stories in order to inspire churches and small groups into greater mission and zeal. The harvest is ripe with individuals around us waiting to find Jesus and start a new chain for God’s Kingdom.
