Jesus didn't tell us to build the biggest churches we could build. He told us to serve his children

More than anything else, BE THE HANDS AND FEET is a book of ENCOURAGEMENT. The author, Nick Vujicic, believes in the "Big Tent" method of Christian evangelism. He's not interested in pushing a particular denomination or approach; rather, he's interested in how individuals can be like Jesus everyday--how we each can be the "hands and the feet" to those suffering, and especially to those who need to hear the Gospel.

"My encouragement to pastors everywhere is to come under one tent to fulfill this primary mission, the Great Commission."

Most of the book is devoted to stories about fellow believers who are sharing the Gospel throughout the world, or who are helping the suffering. Nick also describes his international journeys--where he usually met a warm reception, but sometimes a scary situation. 

There is lots to like in BE THE HANDS AND FEET. Nick provide various ideas on how Christian believers can demonstrate God's love for a lost and dying world. Many of the stories are from fellow believers the author has met in his travels.

The latter part of the book describes Nick's own struggle with some painful medical problems and procedures he had to endure. The book also includes a powerful testimony all about his dad in "My Father A Model for Life."

I thought this one sentence from Nick nicely describes the theme of this book:

"Jesus didn't tell us to build the biggest churches we could build. He told us to serve his children."
