Uncovered by Rod Tucker

While doing outreach to the homeless in the inner city one day, Rod and his fellow leaders were surprised that they had overlooked one of the people they were there to reach out to. Because he wasn't dressed like a homeless person, they completely missed out on helping this man. No one saw him or even talked to him. All of the Christians were so completely preoccupied with their ministry that they missed out an another incredible opportunity.

How is it that we, as Christians fail so miserably at the one of the most important things we are called to do? Reach out to and love others?

This book is all about honesty. How honest we are with ourselves, with others and most importantly, with God. One of the examples that Rod Tucker uses is Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve knew they had sinned and knew they were naked yet they tried to hide it from God. Seems kind of silly since God already knows anyway, but we react the same way when we sin.

This book is not a very long read as it is only 156 pages with large spaces in between. It was super easy to read and comprehend and a reader would easily be able to finish it in one to two nights. Included in the end of each chapter are discussion questions to read through. I found that even though it was a short read, it was still packed full of information and is definitely a book I would recommend.

I received this book for free from Kregel in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
