Review: Something Needs to Change by:David Platt

 Something Needs to Change: A Call to Make Your Life Count in a World of Urgent Need
 **Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
 While leading a team on a week-long trek of the Himalayas, bestselling author and pastor David Platt was stunned by the human needs he encountered, an experience so dramatic that it "changed the trajectory of my life." Meeting a man who'd lost his eye from a simple infection and seeing the faces of girls stolen from their families and trafficked in the cities, along with other unforgettable encounters, opened his eyes to the people behind the statistics and compelled him to wrestle with his assumptions about faith. In Something Needs to Change, Platt invites readers to come along on both the adventure of the trek, as well as the adventure of seeking answers to tough questions like, "Where is God in the middle of suffering?" "What makes my religion any better than someone else's religion?" and "What do I believe about eternal suffering?" Platt has crafted an irresistible message about what it means to give your life for the gospel--to finally stop talking about faith and truly start living it.

My Review:
 To be "on fire" for Christ takes on new meaning in the book entitled Something Needs to Change. The author takes his own experiences and the things that he has seen and feels that we need to change the world one sin or misfortune at a time. He also deals with some pretty tough thoughts and questions that are not so easily answered or fixed.

 At this place in the game we can no longer compromise truth and our beliefs for popularity and being comfortable. We need to move with a vigor and purpose like never before. God needs to be spread out and spread further than He ever has been. And you don't have to be a missionary to accomplish this.

 You can start in our own family, your family church or in your community. We can start small starting a food drive for the homeless or maybe just volunteering at your church in different outreach opportunities.

 That is what is so great about God! He offers us many chances and situations to advance His kingdom.
