Theology in practice  Mar 25, 2005
Fuller is the founder and president of Habitat for Humanity, an organization that builds homes for the poor. This book offers numerous anecdotes and illustrations concerning work in Habitat for Humanity since its inception. The author speaks from a Christian perspective and identifies core Christian convictions that undergird his ministry.

The author contends that the theology of the hammer means that Christian faith demands more than just talk and singing. "We must put faith and love into action to make them real, to make them come alive for people" (7). This theology is also about bringing together diverse peoples, churches, and organizations to help build houses and establish viable communities. Even though those involved may have diverse political, philosophical, or theological preferences "we can agree on the imperative of the Gospel to serve others in the name of the Lord" (7).

Fuller believes that sufficient resources exist for solving the problem of poverty housing and homelessness. "Everybody made in the image of God, and that's the whole crowd, ought to have a decent place to live and on terms they can afford to pay" (17). Although his work consists mainly stories of practical work in building homes, Fuller acknowledges that, in addition to the Bible, he has been influenced by such theologians as Walter Rauschenbush, Albert Schweitzer, Alan Durning, Henri Nouwen, and Dorothy Day.

I recommend this book.

Theology of an Angel  Dec 4, 2003
Millard Fuller is, in terms of the miricle he has created, an angel. He has done many things others only talk about. Many of us have wishes to free the world of hunger or poverty. This man is one who has acted upon his beliefs. In this book, he shares his Philosophies on Life and Love.
I'd like to thank everyone who has ever done work through habitat or a similar organization. I had the opportunity to listen to Millard Fuller speak in person, and it was truely inspirational. If you ever get the chance, go and see him. Until then, read his books. They are great and convey important principles.
 
Summarizes the Christian foundation of Habitat for Humanity  Apr 13, 2000
Many of Millard Fuller's books tell the remarkable stories that have come from the ministry of Habitat for Humanity. This book's focus, however, is how Habitat's ministry fulfills the Biblical command to love one another.

This book doesn't lack for stories and anecdotes, but the purpose of this book is to explain the theological basis which calls people (Christians and non-Christians alike) to come together to help God's people in need.

It's a must read for anyone contemplating deep involvement in Habitat's work.
