Something Does Need to Change!

In his book, Something Needs to Change: A Call to Make your Life Count in a World of Urgent Need, David Platt has written in impassioned book about his journey, literally and spiritually.  Platt goes on a life changing journey and invites the reader to go along with him and discover needs which we do not see in the USA.

Platt prepared physically and spiritually for his journey to the rugged Himalayan mountains and trails.  Once there, he couldn't help but see the rampant poverty, human trafficking, the hunger, the waste and more problems than he realized in one area.  This led to a life changing experience because of the personal crisis he was experiencing.  This is what Platt sought to chronicle in this book which is very different than his others.

As the title suggests, Platt discovered that Something Needs to Change.  His hope is to challenge the readers to look at the world through the eyes of Christ.  To see a world which is broken and in desperate need of help.  As Platt writes, he is moved and moves the reader to consider how to bridge faith in Christ with social justice.  The two are not mutually exclusive.  You can sense the passion in the words of Platt.

Overall, this is a very moving and powerful book.

I received this book in exchange for a honest review.
