About Be the Hands and Feet
New York Times bestselling author and world-renowned motivational speaker Nick Vujicic is known worldwide as the man without arms and legs who personifies a "can do" spirit. Now in greater detail, he explains how the example of Jesus Christ motivates him to travel and speak broadly because the"good news" of the Gospel is just too good to keep quiet! Although the world has so many problems, no challenge is too great for the God who promises to move mountains. Using compelling stories from his own experience, Nick shares the heart of his message, the motivation behind all he does, and something that he believes the world needs now more than ever before: A faith in Jesus Christ that moves people to act and make the world a better place.
Vujicic (Life Without Limits), an Australian evangelist and motivational speaker who directs the nonprofit Life Without Limbs, eagerly spreads the Christian message in this joyous book. Vujicic was born without arms or legs and here writes about how he doesn’t let this or any obstacle interfere with his mission to preach and live life to the fullest. “These days, more than ever,” he writes, “I can be the hands and feet of Jesus both on the road and at home.” The title—a frequent refrain throughout the book—comes from a Saint Teresa of Avila quote that was particularly affecting for Vujicic during his formative spiritual education. Anecdotes about encounters with believers and doubters during speaking engagements are peppered throughout and showcase his persuasive and compassionate demeanor. He also offers helpful Scripture passages and tips on evangelizing. The book’s most memorable passages are the loving character portraits; for instance, he writes affectionately about his school janitor, Mr. Arnold, who “encouraged me to talk openly about my struggles with my disabilities and my faith.” Vujicic’s excitement about Christianity is infectious and will appeal to young people.

Be the Hands and Feet Helps Readers Bring God’s Love and Hope to the World
“an Australian evangelist and motivational speaker…eagerly spreads the Christian message in this joyous book….Vujicic’s excitement about Christianity is infectious and will appeal to young people.”
— Publishers Weekly
The remarkable story of how Nick Vujicic was born without limbs and overcame tremendous daily obstacles to become a messenger of God’s love and hope to the world has touched millions. Known for his contagious joy, he always shares a hug with whomever he meets.
In the last 15 years, Vujicic has had the privilege of sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in 68 nations with more than 8 million people. He has spoken to 18 presidents and addressed 10 national governments, encouraged students at 900 schools, and given hope to prisoners and victims of human trafficking. His many YouTube videos have been viewed more than 600 million times. Bobby Schuller, senior pastor of Shepherd's Grove Church & Host of Hour of Power, recently told Nick, “You’re going to be our generation’s Billy Graham.”
Now available in paperback, CBA bestseller Be the Hands and Feet: Living Out God’s Love for All His Children (WaterBrook, Mar. 5, 2019) provides numerous never-before-published stories from Vujicic’s many faith adventures and also helps readers share God’s love with those around them in practical ways.
In his candid and conversational style, Vujicic describes:
· his missional call—even in his hesitancy and without limbs—to be a messenger of hope to the world
· practical ways of reaching out with God’s kindness to truly make a difference in others’ lives
· ways to effectively mentor someone and to honestly and lovingly answer difficult spiritual questions
· the media controversy that erupted in Russia during his recent speaking tour
· his brush with death as a result of a medical complication
Additionally, Vujicic describes both the challenges and joys of daily life without limbs as he directs the nonprofit Life Without Limbs while also being a loving husband and father to his children. He and his wife, Kanae, recently welcomed twin girls into their family, joining their two boys.
Vujicic’s ministry has maximized technology to share the hope of Christ worldwide through many simulcasts, videos, and social media. However, a few years ago, while speaking in a building that had reached its capacity of 2,000 people, he envisioned using a massive tent to reach many more people. This idea seemed impractical at first, but the dream in his heart persisted for months and he sensed God’s direction. After several amazing circumstances came together, a donor gave the ministry a 64,000 square foot tent that can hold 8,000 people!
The tent outreach dream became a reality in the fall of 2017 when Life Without Limbs partnered with numerous local churches and held evangelistic events during fourteen consecutive nights in Ventura County, California. Vujicic sees the massive structure as a symbol for his long-term goal to bring believers of all denominations under one tent, regardless of differing doctrines and traditions. “He is our Father and we are his children and we must find ways to serve Him together, despite our differences,” he notes. He is incredibly excited about the future and the possibility of reaching even more people for Christ through both tent outreaches and modern technology.
Be the Hands and Feet is an essential equipping resource for people of all ages and faith backgrounds in propelling them into serving God and sharing His love.
