Be the Hands and Feet: Living Out God's Love for All His Children (Paperback)
Nothing in life is as exciting and satisfying as introducing Jesus to people who have never met him.
New York Times bestselling author and world-renowned motivational speaker Nick Vujicic is known worldwide as the man without arms and legs who personifies a "can do" spirit. Now in greater detail, he explains how the example of Jesus Christ motivates him to travel and speak broadly because the"good news" of the Gospel is just too good to keep quiet! Although the world has so many problems, no challenge is too great for the God who promises to move mountains. Using compelling stories from his own experience, Nick shares the heart of his message, the motivation behind all he does, and something that he believes the world needs now more than ever before: A faith in Jesus Christ that moves people to act and make the world a better place.

Vujicic (Life Without Limits), an Australian evangelist and motivational speaker who directs the nonprofit Life Without Limbs, eagerly spreads the Christian message in this joyous book. Vujicic was born without arms or legs and here writes about how he doesn’t let this or any obstacle interfere with his mission to preach and live life to the fullest. “These days, more than ever,” he writes, “I can be the hands and feet of Jesus both on the road and at home.” The title—a frequent refrain throughout the book—comes from a Saint Teresa of Avila quote that was particularly affecting for Vujicic during his formative spiritual education. Anecdotes about encounters with believers and doubters during speaking engagements are peppered throughout and showcase his persuasive and compassionate demeanor. He also offers helpful Scripture passages and tips on evangelizing. The book’s most memorable passages are the loving character portraits; for instance, he writes affectionately about his school janitor, Mr. Arnold, who “encouraged me to talk openly about my struggles with my disabilities and my faith.” Vujicic’s excitement about Christianity is infectious and will appeal to young people.
