Real-Time Connections, by Bob Roberts Jr., will show you how to use your everyday passions to make a global impact ... while staying attentive to your job, your home, and your family. The Great Commission is not just for professional clergy; it is a charge to every follower of Christ-ordinary Christians like you and me. Bob Roberts urges you as a disciple of Jesus to reclaim your share in God's transforming work around the globe. Roberts illuminates the ways that Christians from any walk of life can use the everyday skills of their career and/or passion in service of God's kingdom. Today's global economy offers you, a follower of Jesus, opportunities to interact with nations and people groups once accessed only by remote missionaries. This book demonstrates the world-changing possibilities your vocation holds when used in service of God's kingdom. "Real Time Connections forges a new path as Christianity addresses a globalized world. It is well worth reading." - Bob Buford, founder, Leadership Network
