Sent: How One Ordinary Family Traded the American Dream for God’s Greater Purpose
By Hilary Alan (WaterBrook Multnomah)
A 2014 OUTREACH RESOURCE OF THE YEAR

Alan’s story itself isn’t that unusual. You may know people who’ve taken the same step: A middle-class family realizes God’s claim on their lives trumps the appeal of upward mobility. They sell all they have and move to a foreign country in need of Jesus, in the Alans’ case, to Muslim Southeast Asia to serve in a city devastated by the 2004 tsunami. But what sets this story apart is the powerful storytelling. Yet this isn’t simply a story, but also a chronicle of the way God is working in the life of this family—and how he can work in the life of the reader. No rose-tinted glasses here. Alan is completely honest and unguarded about her family’s doubts and the difficulties they encountered. With great skill, she turns those experiences into life lessons and a challenge with which we all need to be presented. The book includes discussion questions for five small-group sessions. —David Lambert, from the March/April 2014 issue of Outreach magazine
