About "Risky Compassion"
Risky Compassion is series of stories, insights and reflections from Dr Ash Barker's twelve years immersed in Bangkok's largest slum with his family. From this extreme context he explores the story of the Good Samaritan and teases out life's risky questions and implications for each of us. Ash brilliantly identifies those qualities that can enable you to go deeper in life - no matter where you live.

Ash and Anji Barker, founders of UNOH, and their children Amy & Aiden live among the poor in the Bangkok slum of Klong Toey. Like all UNOHs workers, the Barkers have a passion to love God and neighbour so much that the urban neighbourhoods they live in become like villages centred on Christ. Ashley is the International Director of UNOH with UNOH chapters in Bangkok, Melbourne and Sydney. He has authored Making Poverty Personal, Collective Witness: A theology and praxis for a missionary order and Finding Life: Reflections from a Bangkok Slum.
