From the Back Cover
In Compelled by Love, Heidi Baker gives you a glimpse of total dependence and authentic Christian community by taking a fresh look at the Beatitudes.
In the war-torn, poverty-stricken country of Mozambique, she and her husband have experienced God's miraculous provisions and witnessed the transformed hearts of people caught in desperate life-or-death situations. Join them and discover the reality of God's kingdom here on Earth.
-For anyone wondering if they could truly live a life of radical love...
-For anyone wondering if the Beatitudes mean anything...
-For anyone wondering how to follow Jesus all the way...
"If God is not with us, we do not want to continue. If the Sermon on the Mount is simply impractical, our mission work is hopeless. We have no backup plan. We have nothing but Him."

"Compelled by Love" is a book about living, actually living, the Beatitudes! Roland comments that the Beatitudes are the most watered down of the scriptures, and they are. We say, "impossible!" Heidi shows us that they are not impossible and she shares how she learned from the poor and hurting, to be Jesus in hard circumstances.
More than a book that touches the heart and spirit, this book is what we, the church in the West, need to desperately hear, because the message, to love the one in front of us, is the cry of the Father's heart to the church. I have heard Heidi speak at conferences, and she affects you the same way all her books do.... unaware to you, the Spirit puts the message (His message) deep in you and you are changed, moved, awakened, wanting more of Him in you and wanting to be Him to a hurting world!

"The only currency that will heal every culture is ceaseless love. To be a minister, we must walk like Jesus, talk like Jesus, and be like Jesus for a broken and dying world."
This is how faith in Christ should be. I highly recommend reading this fairly short book, which also has lots of reflections on the thoughts of Mother Theresa.
The books takes you through the Beatitudes in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5) and shows how revolutionary the teaching of Jesus is - so opposite to the way we think naturally, especially when surrounded by so many material things.
Heidi Baker quotes a lot from the writings of Mother Theresa, especially as they have so much in common in their approach to the poor.
We in the affluent West have so much to unlearn to follow Christ's example and teaching, "the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me to preach Good News to the poor".
This book will change you and challenge you to love God more and love people around, especially the poor, the disadvanged, the orphan, the destitute, etc.
God's love, in action through you, can change the world.
