A Review by Glynn Young [of Faith, Fiction, Friends]

A few years back, Dan King was something very familiar to all of us: a member of the holy order of pew-warmers, those of us who go to church, listen to the sermon, sing a few hymns, drop an envelope in the offering plate and bow our heads during prayers. Then we go home and live the rest of our lives.

Then King, a corporate trainer by profession, did something dangerous. He started a blog.  Oct. 15, 2008 – Blog Action Day – rolled around with a prompt to write about poverty. He did some research and wrote a post. He became interested in the topic, and wrote more posts. He began to write about organizations trying to do something to alleviate it. His posts got noticed. He started receiving news releases. He wrote and researched more.

He ended up spending two weeks in Africa. His life changed. The pew-warmer had become something else.

The story of what happened to King is told in his new book, The Unlikely Missionary: From Pew-Warmer to Poverty Fighter. And what a remarkable story it is.
