Sinossi

What if you could become a powerful force for good in the world without moving overseas, burdening your overwhelmed family, or giving up the comforts of modern life?


 


Chris Marlow, founder of the global advocacy organization Help One Now, once felt paralyzed in the face of global problems. They seemed too numerous, too complicated, too big—and after all, how much can one person really do? But a wake-up call in Zimbabwe and a closer study of Scripture soon showed Chris that maybe Christians are overcomplicating how to do act justly in a broken world. Maybe all God is calling us to do is set up a lemonade stand for a good cause.


 


Doing Good is Simple is your practical guide to world change wherever you are. Through Chris’ own journey of an ordinary person seeking God’s good in the world, this book will:


 



  • Empower you to make a difference where you are

  • Redefine good according to God’s metrics of small, simple things with great love

  • Bring global concepts down to earth for you to find your place in the area where God is calling you

  • Disband the top myths we tell ourselves when it comes to world change and why we aren’t “enough”

  • Free you from your first world guilt complex that drags you down

  • Provide practical, accessible guidelines for getting started today

5.0 su 5 stelle You're living a comfortable life, giving to charity 2 agosto 2016
Di meredithmd - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
You're living a comfortable life, giving to charity, but you want to do more. You are overwhelmed by the choices in organizations. You wonder if your money, your gifts, your skills could even make a dent in the astronomical problems of this world.

Did I describe you? Get this book. You'll be reminded that the entire world is not your burden, but you CAN be used to make real change and save real lives. You'll feel empowered. You'll find yourself waking up from "compassion fatigue."

One of the aspects I love most about this book is Chris Marlow's voice. He never takes the condescending tone I find all too common these days. You know the one? The one that uses sarcasm for "humor," which is really a thinly veiled attempt to make you feel bad and the author feel important. The one that pretends to be doing you a favor but comes across as haughty instead. Chris never does that. He is kind and considerate, and he assumes the best of his readers. If you're afraid this book is one more loud, annoying piece of white noise, let me assure you it is not.

Chris Marlow's book is a gift for those who want to do good and simply don't know how.

5.0 su 5 stelle Simple ideas executed well can have global impact 2 agosto 2016
Di Bradley L. - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Big things can come in small packages, and Chris Marlow doesn't disappoint in this book. He writes one of the most compelling books I've read on the Christian's call to to do good, seek justice, and share the Gospel. How can we share the Good News if we aren't helping to feed, clothe, and educate our neighbors. He speaks clearly of not supporting poverty tourism, and bring a group to do a weeklong mission project; however, he talks about building relationships, and making positive change in the communities we are working in. He doesn't call everyone to support Help One Now, but to serve where God is calling them and to do it well.

5.0 su 5 stelle Doing Good IS Simple 6 agosto 2016
Di Eva P. Scott - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This book has helped me a lot as I look around and see so much pain and suffering and feel quite hopeless to do much about any of it. Mr. Marlow says:

“…God is leading, we are following, and we have to learn how to rely on him. If we fail to do this, good people who care about others deeply but try to serve out of their own strength will get frustrated and walk away when they realize that they do not possess the power to make the changes they want to see. Only God does!” Chris goes on to say: “This subtle but vital truth will empower us to know that we are good enough, we are gifted, we share the burden with Christ, and yet we don’t have to carry the impossible weight of fixing all the world’s problems. This means we are free to serve, love, fight for good, and yet we can rest our souls because God is in full control.”

The book tells the author’s journey to starting his nonprofit, the struggles he’s had with seeing such poverty and feeling so insignificant. And, yet, he also talks about we can make a difference for people in simple ways and that it really does make a difference.

He tells stories of people he's met and how he was visiting in a village where his organization had started to help. He was meeting with one of the leaders there. They were sitting around eating, and the guy told him, “There are children who don’t have to sleep on the dirt floor because of your gifts. They got mattresses to sleep on. They can go to school.” He talked about having to go to the bathroom to cry, because he thought of all the other children who would be sleeping on the floor in the dirt.

He warns people that when you get involved in doing good that you have to learn to be like a marathoner: “Over the years I’ve learned a lesson: overwhelmed people quit!...Just like marathoners, you have to come to grips with the fact that you cannot fix the entire world by daybreak…Don’t be the person who loves hard and goes so fast that you run out of gas, give up, and ignore the calling to do good with your life. When we run out of gas, it‘s not because we don’t care; it is because we started to sprint instead of taking small, but important, mini-steps forward. These steps are significant, helping you pace yourself for the long haul ahead.”

He suggests that, “Less is more; narrow your focus, dig deeper, and feel the joy of clarity and keeping life simple.” He gives examples in the book of ways to use the talents you have to help people, how to partner with organizations that are already doing good. But he emphasizes to do something.

Buying this book buys five meals for children as the author is giving towards that from the purchases.

Disclaimer: I received a review copy of his book in order to promote the book, and I have also purchased a book to give away. The quotes I mentioned may be slightly different from the final book since the book I received is a review copy.

5.0 su 5 stelle Feeling like you can't help those in need? Read this book. 3 agosto 2016

There are times that you see on TV how there are so many children without clean water, food to eat, clothes to wear or even resources to get an education. You either suddenly feel the urge to want to change the channel or just watch and feel like your hands are tied. You might feel like whatever funds you send won't be enough to make a dent in poverty around the world.

That there are so many children, mothers and fathers who can't even afford a pair of shoes while you have at least a good pair. When I heard about this book, I immediately signed up to be part of the launch team as I felt it was going to be an awesome book that would inspire me to do more for my neighbor. I realized after reading it that I don't have to leave the comforts of my family's life or travel overseas to feed the poor or lend a hand to those in need.

Chris shares in his book about "how we determine interruption, it will determine who we become and how we spend our lives." He shares his experience of a visit to Zimbabwe and how he saw first hand the needs of our fellow neighbors and how he wished he could do more for them. As time went on and he went back to the States, this passion he had to try to create something beneficial for families abroad started fading with time.

I felt he was talking to me there. He started off with a lemonade stand and this simple yet effective way of gathering funds for children in Zimbabwe allowed others to pitch in and they themselves give a little grain of salt to make a greater impact. Yes, although the lemonade sales weren't thousands of dollars, whatever he was able to make was sent to the families abroad.

Chris not only talks about his visits with families but how we should give of each other and not only preach the gospel but do the humane acts. Not just by preaching and sharing the gospel will families survive but by acts of kindness in sharing tools and resources to empower and educate those in need.

After having received the review copy from Chris' launch group, I received a message from a church leader asking if I wanted to be part of the Board of Directors for a non profit organization he has been wanting to start up. I had been waiting for this call as he had mentioned this to me a few months back and I've had this desire to put my two cents in the organization but due to time, other priorities and other live's interruptions, nothing had been done.

This book came in perfect timing for me and I highly recommend this book to those wanting to do good and feel that they have to move across the world to lend a helping hand. Doing good is SIMPLE.

5.0 su 5 stelle A quick, impactful read that will resonate. 2 agosto 2016
Di allenraleigh - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I’m pretty sure this book was written for me. Perhaps it was written for you, too. If you’ve ever taken a step back from serving because the world’s problems were too big, and if, like me, you were sure you could never possess the power or talents to change things for the better, this book is a bold and beautiful invitation to get in the game. In his first book (please, let there be a second and third, etc…), Chris Marlow very clearly shows us that we can affect change, we can be changed ourselves, and that we don’t have to dismantle our lives to do it. And here’s the kicker: God rejoices in our decision to jump in! Our world is messy, and the global issues we face can cause the best of us to stop, paralyzed in our tracks. The author meets us where we are, and he shows us how we can choose action, in whatever form that looks like to us, in order to help others. “Doing Good is Simple”, in its brevity, gives us a very clear vision of what good may come from simple acts. It’s the little book that could, and very much like the author's message, it is significant in its simplicity.

For me, this quote sums up the power of the book: “I believe ordinary people can partner with God, unleash good, change the world, and still have a life. We don’t have to carry this heavy, impossible burden to fix all the world’s problems—we just have to know where God has called us to help. You don’t have to move to another country, quit your job, or stop enjoying life. This is not the mission or hope of Jesus; we are free in Christ, not trapped by religion.”

I loved this book. I hope you do, too.
