About "Mercy Streets"
Taylor Field's vision has been changed. His eyes see different. Inner city life is to blame. The city streets, and more pointedly, the life on the city streets, has brought about an enlightenment to his eyes. He now sees life where he thought there was none, hope where one would assume there wasn't any, and beauty in the ashes of humanity. As Francis Schaeffer once observed, people are "magnificent, even in ruin." "Mercy Streets is Taylor's reflections on learning to see through divine spectacles. His experiences in Berlin, Hong Kong, San Francisco, and mostly New York City allow him to bring a distinct and universal perspective to ministry in the urban scene. New York City, in all its brilliance and decadence, still represents the worst and best western civilization has to offer. And when we see with enlightened eyes, we see mercy and the God of mercy still lives on the streets.
