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, as fundamental to Christian living as evangelism, discipleship, and worship. But he doesn't stop there. He shows how we can carry out this vital ministry as individuals, families, and churches. Join Keller as he explores the biblical way to participate in compassion ministries. In this retypeset edition, he deals perceptively with thorny issues, such as balancing the cost of meeting needs with the limits of time and resources, giving material aid versus teaching responsibility, meeting needs within the church versus outside the church, and more.
