Written with courageous and confident insight, “A Better Way” addresses one of the greatest challenges in the Christian church today…loving others as Christ loves us. The church is full of people who talk about grace and support; but when tragedy strikes or we suffer deep pain, more often than not, the hurting or helpless encounter judgment and betrayal. Having endured great sorrow, David shows us there is another way… “A Better Way” …it is the way of love as Christ loves. It means to love purely… to love without condition, to give without expectation, to embrace the rejected, to seek those misunderstood, and in every way, to walk humbly with one another.
Colleen Swindoll-Thompson, Director of Special Needs Ministry, Insight for Living
“A Better Way” is not a book! No, these pages you hold in your hands are a wakeup call that will sound the alarm to the global church for a better way…the way that Jesus intended it to be all along. In these chapters, David Glover gives voice to often a neglected and often misunderstood people in God’s family who are often sidelined. As the radical leader of the PURE movement, David reminds us to embrace the diverse tapestry of God’s kingdom and then equips us with a strategy on how everyone in God’s army has a place to belong and serve.”
David Nasser, Author and Pastor, Christ City Church, Birmingham, Alabama
Love compels us to obey our beloved Lord who loves us. It motivates us to emulate Him by loving others, all others, in His name. In “A Better Way” David Glover illustrates love in action while calling from us a loving response for the “whosoever” in our sphere of influence. All persons have limitations, but the capacity to receive love is universal. The only thing comparable to receiving love is giving it. “A Better Way” shows what is a better way of showing love. It is an exhortation to share love with “the least of these.” It is sure to warm the cockles of your heart and open your eyes to opportunities you might tend to overlook.
Dr. Nelson L. Price, Pastor Emeritus, Roswell Street Baptist Church, Marietta, Georgia
David Glover is a gift to the Body of Christ! His insightful wisdom and compelling passion are expressed in his book – “A Better Way.” We are shown how to be Christ’s hands and feet as we minister to those who are so very precious in the Lord’s sight.
Jeff W. Crook, Senior Pastor, Blackshear Place Baptist Church, Flowery Branch, Georgia
Out of the crucible of his own experience, David Glover offers practical encouragement and inspiration to the church to become aware of and sensitive to the needs of individuals and families with disabilities. After reading this book I am more conscious than ever of my need to show the love of Christ to “pure people” who have the capacity to make us more like Jesus. Every church leader, indeed, every Christian, should read “A Better Way” in order to awaken to God’s calling for His church to minister to a very special group of people who make up 15% of our population. This is a ministry that will change you and change your church.
J. Robert White, Executive Director, Georgia Baptist Convention, Atlanta, Georgia
Need a book on practically demonstrating Christ’s love, read this one. When one considers that ministering to the least of these is in turn ministering to Jesus, it becomes the deal breaker. Read and then obey.
Pastor Johnny Hunt, Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church Woodstock, Woodstock, Georgia, Former President, Southern Baptist Convention
David Glover reminds us of the Lord’s teaching in Matthew 22:37-40 in which He says that to love the Lord is the first and greatest commandment and to love our neighbors is the second. It is from this that David and PURE Ministries derive their mission: To strengthen and build relationships with God and fellow Christians to become better Christian ourselves. It is this principle that guides my life and work. By reading “A Better Way” you will see how David shows us the path to become true and ardent agents of transformation for the Church in the 21st Century.
Lynn Westmoreland, Honorary Member, PURE Ministries Advisory Board, Grantville, Georgia
“A Better Way” and PURE Ministries present the heart of the Gospel to the Church for implementation. We are all called to reach out to “the least, last and lost.” “A Better Way” instructs us in the process. It’s powerful, compassionate ministry in action! It makes the church, the church.
Dr. Randy Mickler, Senior Pastor, Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church, Marietta, Georgia
Every person, believer and non-believer, should read this insightful book. Look around you. What do you see? The blinders that we often wear unknowingly can be removed and your life will be changed. I encourage you to pick up a copy of “A Better Way,” read it and then share it with a friend.
