This review is from: Compelled By Love : How We Change the World Through the Simple Power of Love in Action (Paperback)
An amazing book, really uplifting. Heidi Baker had her life changed around on hearing God tell her to live among and learn from the poor. The book is based on the Beatitudes from the Bible but is really simply written and full of incredible examples see has been witness to in Mozambique over the last decade or so. The way in which Heidi appears to so personally know Jesus doesn't have a falseness about it and is so much simpler and deeper than most Christians. Some of the situations her and her family have lived through have been really difficult and yet always there is a humility in her writing.

"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.
