Everyone is trying to change the world. Bono, Brad Pitt, Al Gore, Oprah, Bill Gates. Whether it's bringing justice to Darfur, fighting global warming, building schools, or rebuilding cities, people are flocking to causes bigger than themselves like never before. They are dissatisfied with the status quo and are sacrificing their time and money to change it. God's people should be at the forefront of this movement. But we're not.
Vince Antonucci challenges believers to take part in changing the world and shows them how to do it, answering the big questions like: how do we live out God's message of faith, hope, and love? How do we become agents of change in our own communities? How do we introduce people to the God who can change them? Antonucci says we can do all these things by adopting the strategy Jesus used: become guerrilla lovers.
Just as a small group of people who deliver surprise attacks in close proximity can change the course of a war, they can change the course of love in this world. With engaging true stories of everyday guerrilla lovers, Antonucci inspires readers to wage war on complacency and surprise the people around them with acts of love.
It is definitely one of my favorites. It took me a little while to get the fullness of what the author was suggesting. However, his real life applications provided me with substance that I could immediately apply to my life. I am now doing the Guerrilla Lover assignment with my family.
