Overrated: Are We More in Love With the Idea of Changing the World Than Actually Changing the World? by Eugene Cho

Goodreads | Amazon
We all want to change the world, but as pastor Eugene Cho found out, it takes more than just desire. It takes action. In this personal confession he encourages readers to discover a practical discipleship that begins with the recognition that changing the world starts with changing ourselves.

Many people today talk about justice, but are they living justly? They want to change the world, but are they being changed themselves? Eugene Cho shares his story, a messy, painful story of being more in love with the ideas behind the actions than counting the cost and being a world-changer in action. Because everyone loves justice and compassion, but few have taken it upon themselves to truly live it out in their own lives. Cho is still on that journey to discover what it means, and invites readers to join him.

Overrated by Eugene Cho is a book with an important message – one, I know, I really needed to read. In this day and age, I can quickly see both the appeal of the idea of changing the world and the lack of few results beyond a quick post on Facebook or Twitter. As he writes, Cho wrestles with this society-wide obsession and admits many things that need admitting. He covers many aspects of the pursuit of justice, and as I read, I appreciated how openly he explored and exposed his own experiences and subsequent thoughts, flaws and all. While deeply personal, Overrated manages to transcend individual experience and excellently engages a widespread mindset. Rooted in passion, humility, humor and Gospel truths, Overrated is convicting and impossible to ignore. Any follower of Christ should read it, discuss it, reflect on it, act on it. Don’t wait to pick up a copy of Eugene Cho’s Overrated. I definitely recommend it.
