Description

What if you could become a powerful force for good in the world without moving overseas, burdening your overwhelmed family, or giving up the comforts of modern life?

Chris Marlow, founder of the global advocacy organization Help One Now, once felt paralyzed in the face of global problems. They seemed too numerous, too complicated, too big—and after all, how much can one person really do? But a wake-up call in Zimbabwe and a closer study of Scripture soon showed Chris that maybe Christians are overcomplicating how to do act justly in a broken world. Maybe all God is calling us to do is set up a lemonade stand for a good cause.

Doing Good is Simple is your practical guide to world change wherever you are. Through Chris’ own journey of an ordinary person seeking God’s good in the world, this book will:
Empower you to make a difference where you areRedefine good according to God’s metrics of small, simple things with great loveBring global concepts down to earth for you to find your place in the area where God is calling youDisband the top myths we tell ourselves when it comes to world change and why we aren’t “enough”Free you from your first world guilt complex that drags you downProvide practical, accessible guidelines for getting started today

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 20, 2016 – "An apathetic Christian is a deathblow to those who are suffering," says Marlow, founder of the anti-poverty organization Help One Now. Apathy is an old Christian sin, he notes; sometimes called sloth or acedia, the key element is a marked disinterest in anything outside one's self. Writing in a breezy, intimate, first-names-only style, Marlow provides quick, painless listicles: "Three Hurdles to Doing Good," six ways to jump those hurdles, "Six Desires of Every Human," and six steps to establishing good partnerships. All are clear and concise, and provide encouragement to act. Avoiding a guilt-laden approach, Marlow recounts success stories while gently weaving in recollections of his own violent upbringing and mission trips working with orphans in Zimbabwe and Haiti. For example, when Marlow found out that hungry kids in Haiti could be fed for about 25 cents per kid per meal, he paired up a coffee-roaster in Raleigh, N.C., with schoolchildren in Haiti: the roaster adds a 25-cent "anti-apathy" tax to each bag of coffee, which funds food for students. Marlow's practical guide to social charity is a must-read for anyone who wants to be a decent human being.
