Many people today talk about justice but are they living
justly? They want to change the world but are they being changed
Eugene Cho has a confession: "I like to talk about changing the
world but I don't really like to do what it takes." If this is true
of the man who founded the One Day's Wages global antipoverty
movement, then what must it take to act on one's ideals? Cho does
not doubt the sincerity of those who want to change the world. But
he fears that today's wealth of resources and opportunities could
be creating "the most overrated generation in history. We have
access to so much but end up doing so little."
He came to see that he, too, was overrated. As Christians, Cho
writes, "our calling is not simply to change the world but to be
changed ourselves." In Overrated, Cho shows that it is
possible to move from talk to action.
