Publisher's Summary

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.

Very convicting

What made the experience of listening to Ministries of Mercy the most enjoyable?

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.

Challenging cuts to the heart

I struggled at first but the deeper I went the more impactful I found it. The Holy Spirit was absolutely present as I read this. Stirring both my heart and mind and helping me to see ways to challenge myself and my church in ways we can be more productive for His Glory.

Dated data

The book relies heavily on data. Unfortunately, the book is @15 years old and much of the data is even older. A shorter book with more principals and core teaching would have been much more effective.

Great book, biblically sound with practical advice

Excellent book, but the narrator's delivery was dull and lifeless. Plenty of practical advice on why and how to set up a ministry of mercy.
