“A refreshing, even daring new perspective—extreme poverty doesn’t have to exist! Here’s a book that converts the skeptical and energizes the Church. There’s no place for extreme poverty to hide from the power of God’s people.” --Dr. Wess Stafford, President & CEO, Compassion International "Fast Living both strikes a chord and hits a nerve. It is insightful and provocative. It will help many people break free from the "low expectations" trap." --John Ortberg, Senior Pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church; Author of The Me I Want to Be "Fast Living turns conventional thinking about poverty on its head and invites us to follow Christ in ways that profoundly change the world." --Stephen Bauman, President/CEO, World Relief “Dr. Scott Todd delivered one of the best presentations I’ve seen at Q ... The data are convincing, the call is compelling ... Scott is architecting one of the great efforts of the global Church.” --Gabe Lyons, author of The Next Christians and founder of Q "I loved, loved, loved it!" --Robin Hersma, mother of four and foster parent “Fast Living is a compelling call to have followers of Jesus Christ fast forward the end of extreme poverty. Scott Todd is a modern-day William Wilberforce who brings passion, Scripture, and strategy to ignite the Church for world-changing action.” --Peter Greer, President & CEO, HOPE International
