"I Want to Help. But the World's Problems Seem So Big. What Can One Person Do?"If you're passionate about helping others-but aren't sure where or how to focus your energy-Zealous Love offers information and ideas to help you integrate social justice into your life. The hope woven into every word of Zealous Love is this: God will move and direct you to act on your desire to love your neighbors in need, both globally and locally. Zealous Love introduces you to eight of the world's most pressing challenges: hunger, unclean water, HIV/AIDS, creation degradation, lack of education, economic inequality, refugees, and human trafficking. But it does more than educate. It provides real, practical, do-able steps anyone can take to help make a difference.Each of the engaging chapters features first-person contributions from people like Dave Batstone (Not for Sale), Scott Todd (Compassion International), Sean Litton (International Justice Mission), Debbie Diederich (World Vision), Shane Claiborne (The Simple Way), Wendell Berry, Marva Dawn, and many others. Each contributor saw a need and decided to do something about it. They aren't "Super Christians." They're just everyday people, like you, who wanted their faith to be more than just good intentions.
Mike and Danae Yankoski live in the Pacific Northwest with their dog, Elliott. Their passions include backpacking, hiking, running, tea, growing veggies, good books, and substantive conversation. Mike is the author of Under the Overpass and Danae is the co-author with Francis Chan of Crazy Love and The Forgotten God.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this. Do it. I have to rec this book for anyone remotely interested in social justice/environmental stewardship. It's practical, engaging, and challenging. It's an easy read, but not a light one. The authors introduce each section, then there are field stories, followed by Biblical reflections, then big and small ways to get involved. I think the best thing about it is that it gives me a better general background for so many current events and helps me know how to pray about them. Seriously, buy it. You won't regret it.

Editorial Reviews

As the voices of the next generation of North American evangelical Christianity, Mike and Danae Yankoski are impressive in both their passion and their pragmatism. They combine clarity of thought and excellent organization of material with personal candor and passion in this book which will not merely stir the reader, but move her to act---and to that end, give her some basic information and first steps. As one of the contributors to this volume puts it, "We must overcome the noise of our affluence" in order to hear and respond to Christ's call in the cries of our neighbors. In Zealous Love, Mike and Danae present the church with a "hearing aid" to help us with that process. -- Maxine Hancock, Ph.D
