David C. Cook Red Letters - eBook

In many Bibles, Christ's words are set apart with a red font. It should be obvious, but this distinction helps remind us that when God becomes Man and that Man speaks - it's probably something we cannot afford to miss. So why doesn't the Church take these "red letters" to heart? Why aren't we doing more to be Christ's hands and feet to the poor, the disenfranchised, the weary, the ill, the fatherless, the prisoners? It's all there - in red letters. Why has the Church shirked its responsibilities, leaving the work to be done by governments, rock stars, and celebrities? The Gospel wasn't only meant to be read - it was meant to be lived. From the HIV crisis in Africa to a single abused and lonely child in Russia, the Church must seize the opportunity to serve with a radical, reckless abandon. Author Tom Davis offers both challenge, encouragement, and resources to get involved in an increasingly interconnected, desperate modern world.

Tom Davis is an author, consultant, and the president of Children's HopeChest (www.hopechest.org) a Christian-based child advocacy organization helping orphans in Eastern Europe and Africa. His first book, the self-published Fields of the Fatherless has sold over 60,000 copies. Tom holds a Business and Pastoral Ministry degree from Dallas Baptist University and a Master's Degree in Theology from Criswell College.

This book is a must read for anyone taking their faith seriously. it brings an awareness to what our mandate is in our Christian life. it is quite shocking to read that the enormous problems mainly in Africa are easily preventable if we wake up out of our slumber and do something about it. We are paralysed by fear to lose what we have so that we ignore their problems. Excellent read for teenagers and up .

This book is powerful, beautiful, honest, and pretty blunt with subjects not always deemed important by "good Christians." The urgency and truth in this book are substancial. Please read!

I was deeply moved, encouraged, inspired and empowered by RED LETTERS. Just like Toms other book, Fields of the Fatherless, I am sure I will use RED LETTERS time and time again in my ministry to orphans. I enthusiastically recommend every Christian read this book and then give it to a friend to read. RED LETTERS will inspire and empower you to see Christ in others and, by living the words of Jesus, become His hands and feet to your neighbors, those suffering because of HIV/AIDS in Africa, the orphan, the widow, the stranger and those living right next door. Please purchase this book (by purchasing it you will feed and orphan for a month), read it, and live the words of Christ.

Social concern is a hot topic these days. Fires seem to be burning in the hearts of men and women who are tired of injustice and who seek to make this world a better place. Author Tom Davis invites us to join him on his own journey of living life as Jesus would, reaching out to widows, orphans, and the poor. Davis reminds us that we are to be "doers" of the Word, not only hearers.This book is powerful. It's definitely not a "feel good" book, but after reading it you will be called to change for lifestyle...not only for your own benefit, but for the good of others.

What a powerful book. Tom Davis is on the front lines where God's heart beats strongest - amongst the widows, orphans and strangers that live in our midst and in our world. He calls us to hear the 'Red Letters' the words of Jesus, and to be doers of them not just hearers. His book is not only eye opening but heart opening. Mr. Davis sounds forth the call for us to join him and others in living a faith that bleeds, bleeds red with the words of Jesus. By our love for the 'least of these' will they know that we love Jesus. In loving these in desperate need, we are loving Jesus. Be a doer of the Word and bleed red by living a faith that is real and alive. This book will challenge your faith and lead you on an adventure of discovering the heart of God and experiencing it as you reach out and touch those most in need. Very practical - life changing.
