In Thirsting for Living Water, Living Water International’s President & CEO Michael Mantel invites readers to join him on this adventure and open their eyes to their own stories of God’s faithfulness. It’s an invitation to see where God is already at work: at home, among neighbors, and to the ends of the earth. Here is a story of the holistic gospel, driven by compassion, justice, and mercy, with Jesus at the center. Here is an inspiring vision of a unified, global church–in which each of us has a vital role to play. This new book, published by Intervarsity Press, is available starting Oct. 12, 2021.
