If you are looking to overthrow your comfortable Christianity, this will get to you. There are words here that will tear at your heart. Poverty. Sickness. Sex trade of innocent young girls. What will we do with what we have? *Fun Fact: I was on a team that helped pick out the cover (swipe right to see). *due out Sept 17th #books #bookstagram #📚 #👩🏼🏫 #somethingneedstochange #davidplatt
Something Needs to Change: A Call to Make Your Life Count in a World of Urgent Need by David Platt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is one of those books that makes you wonder if you could do more with your life. Following David through a trek up the Himalayas gives a perspective on a life we cannot imagine. The terrifying death rituals, the sex trafficking of little girls, & the awful medical conditions there make your heart want to stop beating.
This book reminds me of my trips to Haiti. It is impossible to come home and not think about what people are doing to get by in a population that is 85% unemployed. People turn to all sorts of false religions (sprinkled with Christianity) to beg a demon for help. People are starving and dying because of preventable issues. The question David poses to us is what we will do with what we know.
I felt like there was more to say that was left unsaid, but the book spoke to me.
