What is the one aspect of this broken world that, when you see it, touch it, get near it, you just can’t stand? Very likely, that firestorm of frustration reflects your holy discontent, a reality so troubling that you are thrust off the couch and into the game. It’s during these defining times when your eyes open to the needs surrounding you and your heart hungers to respond that you hear God say, “I feel the same way about this problem. Now, let’s go solve it together!”Bill Hybels invites you to consider the dramatic impact your life will have when you allow your holy discontent to fuel instead of frustrate you. Using examples from the Bible, his own life, and the experiences of others, Hybels shows how you can find and feed your personal area of holy discontent, fight for it when things get risky, and follow it when it takes a mid-course turn. As you live from the energy of your holy discontent, you’ll fulfill your role in setting what is wrong in this world right! Download and start listening now!

    " One of the ongoing questions I hear asked is How do I know what my passion is? Bill Hybels has the best explanation I've heard (or read) yet! Check it out and see what Popeye has to do with it while you're at it! "

    " Interesting idea, that identifying the things that most disturb us is a clue to where God can most effectively use us. But this is essentially an article's worth of material, painfully stretched to book length. "
