Description: After pursuing their lifelong belief that every person deserves a ?simple, decent place to live, ? Linda and Millard Fuller found themselves locked out of the Habitat for Humanity organization that they founded. Pending legal action forced them to remain silent. Now in The House That Love Built, the true story is told of how a dedicated, charismatic leader, who attracted people like President Jimmy Carter to his cause and raised millions of dollars, was wrongly accused of sexual misconduct and pushed aside by a Board with a new agenda for Habitat. Millard and Linda Fuller's story inspires entrepreneurial spirit, starting a business from a simple idea, and Christian spirit-sacrificing material success for making the world a better place. America's largest non-profit foundation Habitat for Humanity includes 1700 affiliates and two million people: during 30 years, hundreds of thousands of volunteers, donors and activists together built 200,000 homes.
