Author and speaker Margot Starbuck, whose books include Small Things With Great Love (IVP 2011) and Not Who I Imagined (Baker 2014), contributed a very gracious review of my new book, Doing Good Without Giving Up, over at the Red Letter Christians site today.
Margot wrote a review of my first book, Green Revolution, when it released several years ago, so I was especially excited that she was reviewing this one as well. Here's an excerpt:
"In Doing Good, Ben is offering ways for activists to survive and thrive as we pursue God’s mission in the world. Ben shares about a pivotal encounter with an activist mentor friend with whom he’d lost touch. When they reconnected 'Alex,' working for an investment firm in Chicago, confided in Ben that he felt as though he’d 'sold out' to a life of comfort and disengagement. In his tender telling, it’s clear that Ben is full of compassion for those who, for a variety of reasons, burn out and lose steam for the work of building the just kingdom Jesus came to establish."
