Description
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 calls us to be ministers of mercy to people in need of shelter, assistance, medical care, or just friendship.

The Government Can't Help
Sean Runnette narrates with a somber tone that reflects the grave issues being discussed. The author offers numerous statistics showing that the government will no longer be able to help the needy and argues that Christian churches ought to step up and fill the gap, as commanded in scripture. Runnette also strikes a hopeful tone when sharing theological foundations and practical applications of ministries of mercy. Keller's book will go a long way in aiding congregations to be better equipped to help those in need in their communities. T.D. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine

Wonderful Exhortation to live out faith
Keller's book, Ministries of Mercy, as read by Sean Runnette, is a wonderful treatise on the need for what has become known as mercy ministries. While I wish the facts were updated, most information was from 1995, the figures were still astounding given where we stand today regarding our economy and such.

I appreciated the foundation of the failure of the government as so many rely on the government for their sustenance. I appreciated more the reinforced biblical foundation of how the church is to be involved in ministries of mercy.

This audio book is narrated by...
This audio book is narrated by Sean Runnette. Listening to this text, I find that I might necessarily need to listen to the full text, or even purchase it. If you're looking to read it, help us out through affiliate purchasing by clicking the image above. Tim Keller seems to be an excellent writer. I recognize his name, but haven't read any of his books. Listening thus far, however, lends me to believe that this book is definitely a game-changing book in regards to how we view religious observation. On the way to Humanitarian Jesus, it seems to aligh with what Ryan Dobson had intended.
