book review: awake
title: Awake: doing a world of good one person at a time
author: Noel Brewer Yeatts
publisher: Baker Books
Awake is an easy to read little book. Easy to read in the sense of being well written and the text flows well. It's a book which makes one aware of needs in our world without "shaming" or "guilt-tripping" the reader. It is a book that does prompt us to ask: "how do I respond?" What can I do to that will build God's kingdom in this world.
Noel blends information - statistics of overwhelming hardships throughout the world with inspireing personal stories from those who have already been awakened and are making an impact.
If you are looking for a good basic introduction to world needs and how people are responding, this is a good place to start.
