“It’s a God Thing” is a knowledgeable book about social ministry as a means to evangelism. One of the more powerful messages is a very logical bit of reasoning from an atheist about our faith, and why it is so ineffective at reaching others for Christ.
First of all, the reader is introduced to Pastor Roesel’s success in a church that met the needs of the community it served. Then Pastor Roesel discusses, step by step, the assessment of the community’s need as well as the need of people to be an integral part of the giving arm of the church.
It is more than clear from the bible references Pastor Roesel uses that not even Jesus worked through his ministry without witnessing their whole selves. The people of the congregation are to be taught well, not only to use the skills that God has provided them, but how to look for the opportunities through their service to witness to the power of God and His ability to make a difference in the lives of the people hearing the good news for the first time in their lives.

If you desire to see real changes happening in your church and your community, Pastor Roesel makes a convincing argument for changing the way you see your part in it.
I received “It’s a God Thing” as a review PDF. It was worth buying. Karen
