I commend this book to all who would heed Jesus’ call to be ministers of mercy: to walk with him along the paths of justice, mercy and truth.
Tim Keller's ministry had been a neon signpost for Christian's looking for biblical reasons for social engagement. Ministries of Mercy explores the story of the Good Samaritan as a compelling basis for acts of mercy.
Tim Keller has approached a challenging subject with typical biblical integrity.
