9781624230042: Against the Wind: Creating a Church of Diversity Through Authentic Love

As pastors, we have taught our people about God's promise to bless every family on earth through Abraham. We have preached that our mission is to reach the whole world with the gospel. But what about the newcomers from other countries who have moved near our churches? What about those who live under the bridge, people with alternative sexual preferences, and others in our communities? Does the love of God move us to care for them? In this book, Don George shares the story of how God touched his heart and changed the direction of his church. If you want to stick with the status quo, don't bother to read it. But if you sense that God has something more—for you and for your church—open both the book and your heart to an adventure of love, challenge, and the thrill of knowing you're in alignment with God's deepest desires.

About the Author:

J. Don George is the senior pastor of Calvary Church in Irving, Texas. During his tenure, the church has grown from fifty-nine people to over 10,000. He graduated from Wayland Baptist University, studied at LSU and the University of Texas at Arlington, and received a Doctor of Divinity from Oral Roberts University. He serves on several seminary, university, and ministry boards. He and his wife, Gwen, have three children and six grandchildren.

Review:

"As you begin reading this book, I pray that God will enlighten the eyes of your heart so you see, really see, the beauty of the Gospel of grace, God's amazing love for all people, and the barriers we've learned to live with way too long. When you see these things, you can't help but take action to reach out to every person in your community. Paradoxically, the love of God will melt your heart and propel you to action. That's the way God works. Get ready. It's coming your way." --SAMUEL R. CHAND, INTERNATIONAL LEADERSHIP CONSULTANT
