Timothy Keller shows that practical care for the needs of people around us is the duty of every believer, as fundamental to Christian living as evangelism. In this reworked edition of a popular resource, Keller gives steps for persevering in active caring, and addresses thorny issues.
Like the Samaritan who found a dying man on the road to Jericho, 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, as fundamental to Christian living as evangelism, discipleship, and worship. But he doesn't stop there. He tackles a range of thorny practical issues as he shows how we can carry out this vital ministry as individuals, families, and churches.
