HASH(0xa290b2ac) out of 5 stars A Must Read for Professionals who know they are called to Impact "Their World" for the Kingdom of God! Oct. 21 2011
By Scott R. Forrest, PhD, Lt Col, USAFR (ret), Director, Technology Transfer Center, Shreveport, LA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Just wanted to pass on what a tremendous impact the book "Change Agent" has made in my life. My Pastor's Secretary gave me a copy because she strongly believes that I am called to be a change agent in the science, engineering, and technology business arena. I admit that I have known this intuitively for many years but never was able to nail down the concept quite as well as Os Hillman does in this wonderful book.

In addition to my duties as Director of the Technology Transfer Center for Louisiana Tech University, I am COO of a small high tech business and am paid staff as the Director of the two year Bible School based in our church. I have struggled in the past with the notion of what kind of man I am called to be since I seem to be called in so many directions. "Change Agent" has helped bring clarity to who and what I am as a change agent of God and has helped confirm in my heart that all my life experiences and training have prepared me for this role. Several years ago, the Lord told me that he was arranging a "marvelous confluence" of skills and abilities to prepare me for what he had called me to do. This book has helped me to see that I am not alone in this type of calling. I highly recommend it for Professionals who have struggled with their ministry identity as I have.

HASH(0xa290b300) out of 5 stars This should be required reading! Sept. 7 2011
By Colin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Os Hillman hit a home-run with this book! "Change Agent" helped me to better understand the process of growth that God has taken me through, and I'm confident that any follower of Jesus would benefit from reading it.

Although I have seen Os speak, this is his first book that I've read...but it won't be the last. Unfortunately, so many contemporary Christian books are little more than "spiritual bubblegum," which initially tastes good but then gets stale and loses its effect; they leave no beneficial long-term impact. But not this one! This is not a book that the author quickly pulled together in a year or two; it's immediately evident that the wisdom contained within "Change Agent" was gathered over a lifetime. The book has genuine depth, but it's also broken into extremely manageable pieces and parts that anyone can easily digest and apply to life.

Each chapter will inspire and equip you to break out of the shell that our culture has built around you, so you can be all that God designed you to be. Buy it...read it...allow it to marinate deep within you...and then buy copies for all of your friends. I wish I had a book like this 20 years ago.

This book was referred to me by a life coach who went to a conference where Os Hillman was the speaker. This is a practical book full of wisdom and the application of this book has been rewarding and I'm not even done with this book. After reading. I became and instant "change agent." GREAT BOOK!! Will share with my friends

HASH(0xa290b720) out of 5 stars A good read that you could use an update Feb. 15 2015
By Robert R. Fike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I struggled with writing a review of this book, vacillating between 3 and 4 stars, but inevitably I decided to go with 3. While Os's work here is to be commended, I can't help but feel like this book is in dire need of a new edition. Some of his examples for change agents, particularly Justin Bieber in the entertainment sphere, are either anemic in support or completely contradictory based on their actions in the public eye of late.

This is a great book if you feel like your 'secular' job has no 'sacred' meaning because it takes you to a place where you feel that you can be an agent for good, Christ-centered love in your workplace.

As I already work at a church, I had a hard time sympathizing with the painting Os was trying to paint about people who work in unfulfilled careers. I also never saw what someone does as a 'secular' career not having 'sacred' value. I always felt that people can leave an impact where they are, whether that be as a mother, politician, pastor or post-man. But I can also see how someone picking up this book from the other spectrum might feel those things and this book would be highly valuable for them.

If you want a road-map to guide you toward being a change agent in your office, neighborhood or industry, then this is a good start.
HASH(0xa290bae0) out of 5 stars Great read!! Essential for anyone who wants to make a positive impact. Dec 5 2011
By C.R.B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Change Agent, by Os Hillman is a relevant look at where we are in the Christian church and our culture today. Many outside the church perceive Christians to be right-wing political activists; however, Hillman says that if we are to make a positive impact on the world around us and reflect the true nature of Jesus we must help to provide solutions to cultural problems, whether it be a problem of poverty, technology, relationships, education, or finance. He cites the model of Jesus, who loved and served the culture around Him, and provided solutions to people's problems. Hillman conveys the notion that culture is changed from the inside out through an intentional love and service on behalf of all followers of Christ to be "change agents" wherever they are. I give this book two thumbs up!!
