Why would someone risk his safety, destroy his schedule, and become dirty and bloody to help a needy person of another race and social class? And why would Jesus tell us "Go and do likewise"? Like the wounded man on the Jericho road, there are needy people in our path - the widow next door, the family strapped with medical bills, the homeless man outside our place of worship. God call us to be ministers of mercy to people in need of shelter, assistance, medical care, or just friendship.

I would definitely recommend this book to any and all believers. The author really challenges the church and it's members to stop and self examine our motives and our mindset for ministry. He supports everything with scripture and really urges us to rethink giving of our time and resources.
