I don't have any of those early copies left. They are all in the hands of interested friends.
"Overrated" was everything I expected it to be. Cho has done some serious self-evaluation of his life, his giving and his causes. He has also studied the general pattern of many faith-based individuals and communities to come up with a conclusion that he hopes does not come true. He asks himself and us the question: "are in more in love with the idea of saving the world, than actually saving the world?"
it's a powerful question. It goes to motive. It goes or practice. It goes to endurance: can we hangin there, through thick and thin to see actual results (or abject failure) from our efforts.
Eugene is one of the most practical, innovative and witty faith leaders I have encountered.
He has a knack for avoiding the mundane, the expected and the repeatedly failed faith initiatives while reweaving a story where we, the people, can engage in the work of the Creator right here in our neighborhoods or far away.
Eugene avoids patterns or "shame", "shoulds" and "stereotypes" in his approach to life and relationships.
I would say a lot more, but perhaps my thoughts might have more significance should we get a chance to chat after you read this strong and entertaining book.
I can heartily endorse this Overrated, because it is definitely not overrated! I trust this dude to always rock my world, and turn my understanding upside down.
Who wants to read Overrated with me?
Over the years I've read a lot of books on justice and Christianity and what it means to follow Jesus. Sadly, most of them end with only loving the idea of following Jesus without actually laying down our life to do it. Eugene articulates that following Jesus will mess you up by the world's standards, and I wholeheartedly agree. It's not easy, and it takes sacrifice, but it's worth it and can actually enable us to let Jesus work through us and change the world one relationship at a time.
