A Rebellion against Apathy. A Strategy for Action. "Life is full of good intentions, but for too many, our good intentions never become good actions--they don't move us forward, draw us closer to God, or make a difference in the world. Good intentions are cans of paint that could have become amazing works of art...but never did." --Daniel Day, in Ten Days Without Daniel Day could tell you all about his love for God and his desire to live as a follower of Jesus. But it took a simple but radical experiment to move from simply talking about it to actually living like it. For ten days at a time, Daniel chose to abandon a certain "necessity"--a coat, a voice, shoes, media, furniture, legs, touch--and to blog about it to raise funds and awareness for organizations that are doing amazing things to make a difference in the world. And then he invited others to join him in the experiments and spread the vision. Together they served God and others--and experienced significant personal change in the process. Ten Days Without is the story of their life-altering adventure. Ten Days Without is a compelling story and practical guide that will equip you and your friends to break through walls of convenience and indifference, and join a movement that is confronting apathy and ignorance around the world to make an impact on people's lives in a God-honoring way. Ten Days Without is where our good intentions end and making a difference in the world begins.
This book is about God weeping over human heartache, his entering our anguish himself, and the love that drives him to let us suffer. It's about experiencing the friendship of God along difficult paths we didn't even know he walked. Much of it is written from Joni's perspective because her life is a remarkable laboratory that proves God knows what he's talking about. But your life is the important laboratory to put God's Word to the test as you read.
Tada offers a counterbalance to the "quick fix" advice of ending suffering through euthanasia and suicide with hope, compassion and real "death with dignity."
This book tells a story of angelic intervention in the lives of two young boys who both need a friend. It shows God's love for humanity on a personal basis.
