" The word gospel literally means 'good news.' Jesus declared that he had come to 'preach good news to the poor.' But what good news, what gospel did the church have for Richard and his brothers? What 'good news' have God's people brought to the world's 3 billion poor? What 'gospel' has Africa's 12 million AIDS orphans seen? And here's a question for you: What gospel have most of us embraced in the 21st century?

A gospel with a hole in it."

-Richard Stearns
