When David Platt took a trip to the Himalayan mountains, the staggering hardship he witnessed transformed the trajectory of his life. Now, in this study, he's inviting you to reflect and wrestle with him as he describes his life-altering trek through the Himalayas. You'll ask hard questions alongside Platt about human need, suffering, faith, the gospel, and our role. For Christians, ignorance of profound human need is not an option. Neither is indifference. It's time to explore what it means to follow Jesus in a world of urgent physical and spiritual need.
