Overrated by Eugene Cho

About the book:
We all want to change the world, but as pastor Eugene Cho found out, it takes more than just desire. It takes action. In this personal confession he encourages readers to discover a practical discipleship that begins with the recognition that changing the world starts with changing ourselves.

Many people today talk about justice, but are they living justly? They want to change the world, but are they being changed themselves? Eugene Cho shares his story, a messy, painful story of being more in love with the ideas behind the actions than counting the cost and being a world-changer in action. Because everyone loves justice and compassion, but few have taken it upon themselves to truly live it out in their own lives. Cho is still on that journey to discover what it means, and invites readers to join him.

My Review - This is a very thought provoking book.  I always like to say that I want a better world.  I just have a hard time believing that anyone else does.  I feel like it can't be done by myself.  My husband is more optimistic than I am, he truly believes that a better world can happen in our time.  I enjoyed this book and look forward to working on actually changing the world instead of just talking about it.
