People in Need of Change Helping People in Need of Change
Comprehensive treatment of how God uses people as tools of change in the lives of others, people who themselves are in need of change.
In many ways, the church today has more consumers than committed participants. We see church merely as an event we attend or an organization we belong to, rather than as a calling that shapes our entire life.
Tripp explains how his work follows an "all of my people, all of the time" model. If you followed the Lord for a thousand years, you would still need the ministry of the body of Christ as much as you did the day you first believed. This need will remain until our sanctification is complete in Glory.

The more you apply the biblical principles discussed in this book, the more readily you will fit into his mighty hand.” ~Ken Sande
