Servolution Book Review
Servolution, written by Dino Rizzo, pastor of the Healing Place Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is a call for churches to serve people in their communities. He says our mission is to help the poor, whom he defines as “any person in any kind of bondage or under any kind of oppression who needs the freedom of Christ shown to them.” Rizzo’s definition of a servolution is bringing healing to a hurting world and loving them to Christ. He described how his church began, and how it helped victims of Hurricane Katrina and 911, but also encouraged churches to start small and look for the needs in their own communities. Rizzo suggests practical ways to serve the community, from giving away bottled water to giving roses to exotic dancers in strip clubs. This book is a must read for people who are serious about meeting the needs of people and sharing the love of Christ with them.
