2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By G. Stephen Goode VINE VOICE on November 8, 2008
Format: Paperback
A wonderful, continuation of inspiring, life-changing stories from the series Christian Heroes: then and now.

Janet and Geoff Benge have captured, in an easy to read - keep turning the pages book - the heart of the David and Carol Bussau family and their contribution to the globally poor of our world.

David's life was shattered at the age of 9 when he and his brother were abandoned by his parents and taken into a children's home in New Zealand. This is a story of overcoming life challenges regardless of what is thrown at you. It is the story about a young boy's dream to work hard and become a millionaire by the age of 40. It is also a story about finding God's purpose for each of us and how God uses our skills to make significant impact in our world.

David is a family man, a follower of Jesus and a man of humility who likes to get along side people and help them develop and succeed. David's skill is being an entrepreneur and making money whether by selling hot dogs, hamburgers or baked goods or building a construction business. His skill is seeing opportunities that come his way and making a profit. His skill is believing in people, particularly the poor, that they can develop these same kind of skills with a bit of capital.

David is one of the fathers in the development of micro-enterprise, micro-finance and providing small loans for the poor and has founded organizations like Opportunity International, Maranatha Trust and the Wholistic Resource Transformation Center to name a few. If you are in business, if you are in government, if you are a student that is looking to make a difference in life or if you are wondering what you can do in missions, this book will give an example of how God can use your skills and help bring about transformation.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Unlike other of Geoff and Janet Benge's Christian Hero's Series, this book didn't reveal that the "hero" did his work for the sake of the Gospel. In fact except for references to churches and Christian organizations, you would never even glean that David Bussau was a Christian, although you would know that he was a church-goer.

Throughout the book, David worked according to his own skill and ingenuity, never (at least not that I recall) looking to God for strength and ability, never turning to Him in prayer. God didn't seem to be a factor in his life and work, although the epilogue did mention his strong faith.

I think the title is misleading. I read the Christian Hero's stories for encouragement in seeing what God's people are accomplishing through Him. I didn't see that in this book. It was very disappointing. I gave it 1 star, only because David was a hard worker.

I know David and his wife and I have met the authors. They are all Kiwis and true blue people. This is not just a book of faith moving mountains, but an example to follow.

Great book! As a young child, David decided to be successful and help others. David is s millionaire that humbles himself and works with the poorest people in the world. Very encouraging and uplifting.
