Great Read for 2009
Robert Lupton's, Christian Life, Rethinking Ministry to the Poor (Regal 2007), is a great read. Controversy blazes between aid with work components or free aid.
His practical compassion paired with common sense is a refreshing approach.
It is a surprising easy read yet probes the marrow of our thinking bones.
Favorite line, "We must come to deeply believe that every person, no matter how destitute or broken, has something of worth to bring to the table."
