Editorial Reviews

Review

"I encourage all believers to read Overrated. It lays a course for how we much proceed as humble but faithful justice leaders in an unjust world."
(Dr. John M. Perkins 2014-08-21)

"It can be fashionable to talk about the poor but not as fashionable to talk to the poor. It may be popular to talk about injustice and still not know any victims of injustice. But we will never make poverty history until we make poverty personal. Eugene Cho shatters all our hipster coffee-shop talk of justice and dares you to dive into the trenches and do something real with your life. Talking about changing the world has never changed the world any more than talking about CPR has ever saved anyone's life. Eugene reminds us that the revolution has to be lived."
(Shane Claiborne 2014-09-16)

"I intended to scan Overrated and write a quick endorsement because I like Eugene. But I couldn't help myself. I read every word and pondered what I read. Eugene's questions became mine: I love justice, but do I actually live justly? Amy I committed and disciplined enough to become an expert about causes and issues I care about? Is my activism smart? Is it grounded in prayerfulness? Do I incarnate the gospel in such a way that I compel people toward Christ? Overrated challenged and chastised me, inspired and energized me. I highly recommend it."
(Lynn Hybels 2014-09-16)

"When you're done talking about the gospel and are ready for your walking to be the gospel: Start here. I needed this book."
(Ann Voskamp 2014-09-16)

"A gutsy and gritty exposé on the motives of a generation in love with the idea of saving the world, Overrated is a necessary exercise for all who desire to truly be a part of the change God wants to bring to humanity. I love justice, and I seek compassion for all, but as Pastor Cho so vividly unfolds, I first must allow the transforming power of the gospel to invade my heart. This book is real, personal, necessary, and a must-read, so we can all continue on the path toward justice for all."
(Louie Giglio 2014-09-16)

"At this moment in church history, the pursuit of God's justice has been restored to its rightful place of importance as a critical task of the church. However, this resurgence may have a price in the engagement of ministries of mercy as self-aggrandizing acts. In Overrated, Eugene Cho offers an honest and necessary confession on behalf of the church. Through powerful and enlightening stories, Eugene Cho offers a timely reminder of the cost of discipleship in the pursuit of God's work of justice."
(Soong-Chan Rah 2014-09-16)

"I am so grateful for Eugene Cho and his passion to show Jesus's love to a needy world in tangible, practical ways. His message is relevant and challenging. This book will inspire you to help establish authentic justice in society today."
(Judah Smith 2014-09-16)

"True justice begins in our own hearts. It is small and personal before it is world changing. We need to take Pastor Cho's message to heart."
(Rich Stearns 2014-09-16)

"There are very few people I meet who are willing to live out their convictions with the sincerity, humility, commitment, and sacrifice that Eugene Cho has shown. This book challenges us all to bring dignity forth through our storytelling and remember that the work we do is not about us, and never has been."
(Scott Harrison 2014-09-16)

"Eugene Cho asks—and answers—a question that everyone who seeks to live out their faith in public at some point asks: Am I more interested in the idea of changing the world than actually doing it? Overrated wrestles with this question with Eugene's signature humor and grace. I recommend it for anyone who wants to authentically live their faith in public—to actually do what we say we believe in."
(Jim Wallis 2014-09-16)
