Making a Real Difference - Christian movers and shakers
Christians have made a positive difference to our nation since its foundation. Motivated by faith, they have put a human face on the principle of 'loving your neighbour'.
This book outlines the profiles of a few of the thousands of Christians who are moving and shaking New Zealand today, including a judge, a leading scientist, a social worker, a journalist, a city councillor, a doctor, an educationist, a racing driver, a businessman, a youth worker, a prison reformer, a city missioner, and a navy commander.
Read about how and why they are making a real difference among the poor, with at-risk youth, in housing, the media, education, health, parenting, business...and across the community.
As a country we are much the richer because of them.
