I have known and admired Bob Roberts for years. He is a leader in the movement to convert belief to action and proclamation to credible demonstration. Roberts is bold. He is adventurous. And he's biblical. He is a consummate connector. Real Time Connections forges a new path as Christianity addresses a globalized world. It is well worth reading. --Bob Buford, Founder, Leadership Network
Bob Roberts has done it again in Real Time Connections. He's written a book that is readable, honest and powerful. It's a book for everyone! It offers real life answers to how followers of Jesus around the world can partner with God as he changes nations through their everyday lives. This book is unique in that it deals with the mega-issues of our planet, yet brings it home (literally) by compelling us to be involved. I loved it! --Carl Medearis, Author "Muslims, Christians and Jesus"

We have done such a great job of segmenting our life so that we have work, home, friends, and community but this is a sick way of thinking. Most of our time is at a job so we might as well become an expert at that job and and share that expertise with others. Its not about exporting Western Ideals it is about serving. This is Linchpin by Seth Godin for Christians.
This is Roberts' best book to date.
Have you ever had the gnawing feeling that you're not doing exactly what you're supposed to be doing or that there's more to where you're at? What if we are exactly where we're supposed to be but we're just not doing all that God has instore for us. In his latest book, Bob Roberts tries to help us understand how we should be "going."
My two favorite chapters have been one and three. In chapter one, Roberts talks about four misunderstandings the church has. In chapter three, Roberts talks about a person's job being his ministry. My favorite quote is, "Those deep longings most of us feel to make a difference in the world are our dim recognition of God's call to us. In our heart of hearts, we want God to use us."
My first Roberts book, but definitely not my last.
"For the first time in history, all the necessary elements, divine and human, are present to enable us to take the gospel to every person throughout the world." - Bob Roberts Jr., Real-Time Connections, Page 10
I've only started this book but I'm already hooked. This isn't just a theological book, but a road map of how the Church can serve the world through its members. Do we dare live it out?
