Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Have we missed the one thing that has the power to bring relief, hope, and healing to our hurting world?
Spend even a few minutes scrolling through your newsfeed and you will be bombarded by stories of disenfranchisement, disconnection, and discontent. God's first impulse toward our broken world was to show mercy--even when justice was justified--and Jesus has invited us to "go and do likewise."

The secret of Jesus's powerful ministry was combining mercy and truth in the context of relationships. This is the model that changed the world. In everything he did, Jesus brought hope and healing through a pattern of love--see, go, do, and endure--that we are called to emulate.

The God Impulse shows you practical ways you can live out this pattern in your own life, enabling you to experience
  • peace and joy as you partner with God in His mission of mercy
  • healing in broken relationships
  • the opening of your heart to those around you
  • a new way to engage social justice issues
  • the rewards God promises to those who show mercy
Jack Alexander is chairman of The Reimagine Group and senior fellow at The Sagamore Institute. Author of The God Guarantee, he is a previous recipient of an Ernst & Young National Entrepreneur of the Year Award and is a regular speaker, coach, and advisor. He and his wife, Lisa, live in Atlanta. They have three grown sons and five grandchildren.

From the Back Cover

"Jack draws a straight line from the lack of teaching and underrepresentation of biblical mercy in the church to the lack of love so many feel from the church. He reminds us that true healing, justice, and reconciliation begin with the impulse of mercy toward our neighbors and enemies. I heartily recommend this book."--Dr. Timothy Keller, pastor emeritus and founder, Redeemer Presbyterian Church; chairman, Redeemer City to City

"Jack reminds us that while God is often portrayed in culture as a harsh and distant master, he is in fact a loving father who longs to grow closer to us--and for us to show mercy to one another."--Andy Stanley, author, communicator, and founder of North Point Ministries 

"The God Impulse unpacks the meaning of true mercy as Jesus taught and ultimately modeled it. In these pages, Jack provides a master class that is inspiring, simple, and very practical--and that every one of us needs."--Shaunti Feldhahn, social researcher, speaker, and bestselling author of For Women Only, For Men Only, and The Kindness Challenge

"This book is worth reading! It's a revolutionary lens on life, the character of God, spiritual formation, and the church that will provoke the kind of deep reflection and evaluation that always precede significant life change."--Chip Ingram, teaching pastor, Living on the Edge; author of The Real God: How He Longs for You to See Him

"The God Impulse takes us on a journey through the rich, wonderful, transforming power of mercy. Throughout the book, Jack reminds us that mercy is more than a sentiment or feeling. It is tied to truth and is a picture of the heart and nature of our great God."--Dr. Crawford W. Loritts Jr., author, speaker, radio host, and senior pastor of Fellowship Bible Church

"The God Impulse is both a refreshing breeze and a slap in the face. Jack Alexander makes the case that mercy is one of the defining characteristics of God and as such should be the same for those who follow him."--Clayton King, president, Crossroads Summer Camps and Missions; teaching pastor, Newspring Church; author of Stronger and Overcome

"It is important to be reminded of mercy's role in saving us and in how we share it with our neighbor. Hopefully, this work will stir many to go from recipients of mercy to distributors of mercy, especially among those who might not look like us."--Eric Mason, pastor, Epiphany Fellowship; author of Manhood Restored: How the Gospel Makes Men Whole
