Every person has a desire to influence others. Whether you are a CEO, housewife, student, manager or church leader, you have a circle of influence. Os Hillman’s new book, Change Agent, helps you understand how to be a person of influence and why God is calling men and women to be change agents in culture. Hillman provides in-depth understanding of why America is losing its moral compass and what must be done to recapture it. He helps individuals understand the processes God uses to raise up His change agents in culture as found in biblical biographies like David, Daniel, Esther, and Moses to name a few. He also profiles modern-day change agents and how they have shaped culture and what we must do to have greater influence. Age, social status and financial resources are not necessary requirements to be a change agent. Hillman shows you how you can be a change agent right where you are.
Hillman also says that “culture is shaped by the 7 mountains of cultural influence – business government, media, arts and entertainment, family, education and the family. “We thought we could shape culture just by getting more Christians in the culture. This has proven not to be true. Culture is shaped by a small percentage of leaders operating at the tops of these cultural mountains. Consequently it requires us to have greater influence at the tops of these culture shaping areas.” Hillman features a chapter on each of the 7 cultural mountains and describes where we are and what we must do to influence these strategic areas.
As a Christian we are called to be "change agents." We are to be used of God to point people to Christ and let Him do the changing. If people are being changed, society and culture will be changed as well. Os Hillman does a great job of showing how we can be change agents of the Lord Most High in the realms of our life.

The Holy Spirit is very serious about calling forth an aggressive army of God to transform our society. One of the tangible indications of this fact can be seen in the remarkable mushrooming of superb literature on the subject. Os Hillman’s Change Agent is the latest and arguably the best transformation textbook now available. Let’s regard this as our Operations Manual for pushing back the enemy and inviting God’s kingdom to penetrate our society! Let’s all get it, read it, digest it, and act on it! We can truly be change agents!

The book Change Agent provides both a map and the indispensable radar upgrade needed so that our days of "blind bombing" in prayer, evangelism and social activism can get recalibrated in expectation of hitting the target and having the impact we all intuitively know our message should carry. Os’ latest book lays a foundation for personal and institutional impact that is both practical and paradigm jarring!

I am convinced that God is calling Christians to engage both people and social structures with His transforming Gospel. Over the years Os Hillman’s books have inspired, challenged and equipped me for this task in my own business life. I would highly recommend ‘Change agent’ to every Christian who is serious about engaging strategically in God’s call to a ministry of transformation and influence in all of the various spheres of society.

The Bible says to pray "your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." But what does that look like and what are Christians to do in the face of the dramatic moral decay of society today? Os Hillman answers those questions with a comprehensive blueprint for change agents. First, he grounds the reader in a biblical worldview framework for society. But, before he says "charge into the battle," he takes the reader through the refining process of character preparation. Finally, he paints the picture of how change agents can extend the kingdom on earth through the 7 Mountains of society. In this book, Os has given Christians an essential tool to equip them for God’s call on their lives in one of the most tumultuous periods in history.
