"Although the book's six authors work for the same organization (InterVarsity Christian Fellowship), their perspectives, personal experiences, and faith walks couldn't be more different. As a result, this book is a treasure-trove of ideas designed to spur readers to a deeper, more intimate relationship with God. In addition to common topics--stewardship, forgiveness-- the authors tackle topics such as racial harmony and gender stereotypes. Chapters include study questions and recommended resource lists. The book's strength is the diversity of its authors and topics. Dozens of candid anecdotes and personal experiences will challenge readers to risk more for Christ. Students and staff workers involved with InterVarsity, as well as other young adults, will benefit from this rousing call to daring, committedChristianity."
