"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."Although I have not yet read or listened to this book, I have consistently heard good things about things about it from others who have read it. At any rate, the audio version is free this month, but the print version is also being made available at a 50% discount for the month of August, so you may want to check it out.
