Format: Hardcover
...And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. In a world where `Me First' has become the norm, it is refreshing to read a text as heart-felt and instructive as Touch: The Power of Touch in Transforming Lives.

Through the eyes of this hands-on pastor the reader receives life-lessons rooted in biblical foundation. It also shows us that ministry is not confined to the official positions of church leadership. Clearly this writing shows that ministry is setting your hand to doing the work of Christ, be it on your job or while at play.

With consistency, Pastor Rasmus not only stresses the necessity to know your neighbor, but also to love them. This love he speaks of has the power to effect change for not only the current recipient and the giver, but for generations to come. It is a love that has to do with a personal rather than a distant touch.

As gentle as it is direct, Touch is a read that makes us mindful of the compassion, grace and mercy of Christ. It shares the joy as well as the challenges and heartache of serving. Above all, its content has the potential to provoke self-examination. After consuming these words of passion and wisdom from one on the front line, one might ask: Is it enough to speak about change or is it my duty, my reasonable service, to become a part of the change we seek?

Format: Hardcover
I was profoundly moved by this book and found myself transformed by the experience of Rev. Rasmus and the work he has been called to do. Rev. Rasmus lives by what he calls a "love imperative " - to love God with all his heart, mind, soul and strength and to love his neighbor as himself. He has taken to heart Jesus's instruction to take care of "the least of these" and it is to them that he has devoted his life's work.

The God that Rev. Rasmus presents is one of love and forgiveness. Rather than judgment, he preaches about God's "majesty and kindness," and the fact that He is "big enough and loving enough to reach into their deepest needs and change their lives."

The most meaningful part of the book for me was when Rev. Rasmus talked about we humans doing the work of Jesus:

"As we increasingly are gripped with Jesus' attitude, our actions will become more like His. Instead of pursuing comfort and prestige, we'll intentionally pursue ways to help those in need. Instead of being annoyed by people, we'll increasingly look beyond the annoyance to see a person God treasures."

There are many ministers out there preaching positive messages of hope and prosperity. But if you want to read the words of someone who is living an authentic and transparent life - someone who is really trying to do "what Jesus would do" - this is the book.

I have purchased over 10 copies of Pastor Rudy's book and passed out to friends and colleagues. This was a "happy" purchase.
