Ministries of Mercy, Third Edition: The Call of the Jericho Road
2 in stock
Why would someone risk his safety, upend his schedule, deplete his bank balance, and become dirty and bloody to help a person of another race and social class? And why would Jesus tell us, "Go and do likewise?"?
The Good Samaritan didn't ignore the battered man on the Jericho road. Like him, we're aware of people in need around us - the widow next door, the family strapped with medical bills, the homeless man outside our church. God calls us to help them, whether they need shelter, assistance, medical care or just friendship. Tim Keller shows that caring for these people is the job of every believer, and how we can carry out this vital ministry as individuals, families and churches.
"There was a point in my pastoral ministry when I looked for a steady hand on mine as I tried to navigate the swirling waters of mercy ministries in an urban setting while remaining deeply committed to heralding God's Word through the exposition of Scripture. Not surprisingly, I found it in Tim Keller's Ministries of Mercy."?
