1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Bojan Tunguz TOP 50 REVIEWER on July 29 2011
Format: Paperback
Being a Christian is not just a passive expression of individual choice in our religious preferences. Being a Christian requires a higher level of commitment: to God, to our fellow believers, and to ourselves. It is an active process that requires the full person and can take your whole lifetime to work at. The way to work at it, however, may not always be clear and it is good to be given guidance by those who have "walked the walk" ahead of us. Bobby Hopper is one such person, and his book "Win, Build, and Send" is a wonderful guide for implementing the message of the Gospel in our daily lives.

The three verbs from the title are the three commandments that are meant to reorient our lives and bring them closer in line with Christ's Great Commission: "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." (Matthew 28:18-20) Based on that commission all of us are called to win over souls for Christ, beginning with the most important soul - our own. We are also called to build our own faith and communities of faith that we belong to, and once we accomplish that to share the gifts that we have been blessed with with others.

This book is filled with numerous examples from the author's life that illustrate the messages that he is trying to get across. Many of these stories are extremely poignant and touching, and they give us hope and encouragement to persevere through many personal trials and tragedies that we may be going through.

Heartwarming true anecdotes June 9 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Written by pastor, teacher, counselor, speaker, and chaplain Bobby D. Hopper, To Win, Build and Send: Preparing to Live a Truly Great Life in Christ is an affirmative challenge to readers to reexamine their own lives and transform themselves to follow Jesus Christ's example more closely. Chapters explain how to 'win' purpose, passion, and love itself through building fellowship, growing, and emulating Christ's holy passion for helping others. To Win, Build, and Send is a consumable self-help book; an addendum for each chapter offers motivational questions ("'Am I allowing God to use me to win my family members?' 'Do I trust Him to win those around me in my life?' 'What must I do in my life to allow God to lead me to win others to him?'") and blank lines for the reader to fill in his or her own answers. Heartwarming true anecdotes from the front lines of Christian ministries are sure to prove inspirational for individuals, organizations, and churches alike in this spiritually energetic and motivational guide.

A practical guide to building God's Kingdom here on Earth Feb. 8 2010

Being a Christian is not just a passive expression of individual choice in our religious preferences. Being a Christian requires a higher level of commitment: to God, to our fellow believers, and to ourselves. It is an active process that requires the full person and can take your whole lifetime to work at. The way to work at it, however, may not always be clear and it is good to be given guidance by those who have "walked the walk" ahead of us. Bobby Hopper is one such person, and his book "Win, Build, and Send" is a wonderful guide for implementing the message of the Gospel in our daily lives.

The three verbs from the title are the three commandments that are meant to reorient our lives and bring them closer in line with Christ's Great Commission: "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.

We are also called to build our own faith and communities of faith that we belong to, and once we accomplish that to share the gifts that we have been blessed with with others.

This book is filled with numerous examples from the author's life that illustrate the messages that he is trying to get across. Many of these stories are extremely poignant and touching, and they give us hope and encouragement to persevere through many personal trials and tragedies that we may be going through. Each chapter of the book also has several Biblical passages that are the most relevant for that particular topic. At the ends of chapters you'll find questions for study and reflection. Many more questions can be found at the end of the book, and the book is best used as study material. Studying it could be done individually, or as a part of a small study group.

Overall this is a wonderful book that can help anyone with deepening their Christian faith and putting that faith to practice in our daily lives.

Excellent Tool For Everyone Nov. 20 2006
By James Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be an excellent resource for winning the lost to Christ. Filled with things you may already know but haven't thought of in a while. Relevent stories to bring home the author's ideas and tips. The study guide in the back of the book is an excellent tool for Sunday Schools, Small Group Studies or to help you look inward to your own walk with Christ. I highly recommend this book to young and the young at heart alike. Win, Build, and Send will help all to live the Great Commission.
