Book "The God Pocket" by Bruce Wilkinson with David Kopp

About the Book: God wants to put a face on giving – and the face he has in mind is not yours, but his.
What if you could take something out of your pocket today that would make God wonderfully personal and absolutely real to someone who, only minutes earlier, had been secretly calling out to God for help, for an answer, for any shred of evidence that He cares?
Discover the incredible resource that’s small enough to fit in your wallet or purse, yet big enough to change someone’s life – starting with yours. In The God Pocket, Bruce Wilkinson tells you what that little something is, explains how to deliver God’s provision to someone in need, and shares how God is ready to reveal Himself through you.
The God Pocket Prayer: Dear God, today I ask to be sent to show Your love and deliver Your funds to the person You choose. I carry Your provision in my God Pocket, and I am ready and willing. I am Your servant, Lord. Whenever You nudge me, I will respond! Here am I – please send me!

My Review: The concept described in this book is something that can change the face of this world. Through seven steps you can start this wonderful journey of creating your own God Pocket. Decide, Devote, Deposit, Depend, Deliver, Declare, Disciple. What a powerful message in such a small book.
The author did a superb job writing this book. You can almost read it in one sit. It took me about two hours to read the book and since I read it I have been praying to make a difference in this world. Mr. Bruce Wilkinson describes a concept that we carry some amount of money that really belongs to God. We separate this money and devote this money to be delivered to someone in need. This person will be indicated by God through a "nudge", that is a inner push that direct us toward a person, a place or an action. It is a signal from God that unexpectedly focuses our attention on someone, directing us to something God wants done. And we do it in His name, for His glory.
I recommend this book to any Christian that wants a new perspective in his/her life, that wants to really make a difference in this world, acting as "God's partner", delivering help to people in need.

This book was written by Bruce Wilkinson with David Kopp as contributor and was published in October of 2011 by WaterBrook Multnomah Books. The publishers were kind enough to provide me a copy for reviewing through their Blogging for Books Program. Thanks, Mr. Wilkinson, for this wonderful book.
