Dirty Faith

Full Product Description

In Dirty Faith, David Z. Nowell makes a stirring call for Christians to put their faith into action - whether in an orphanage overseas or in the impoverished neighborhood just down the road.

Do you ever feel like something in your faith is missing, that going to church, studying the Bible, and tithing just aren't enough? There has to be more, right? What would it look like to truly follow Christ and not just believe in him?

David Nowell asked the very same questions, and was led to minister to the "least of these," whom God loves deeply. In Dirty Faith, Nowell shares powerful stories of faith in action, and encourages us to move with him from the sidelines to the front line, to get our hands dirty helping the hopeless, the disenfranchised, and the poor.

Loving as God loves is central to the gospel, whether that means taking in foster children, ministering to inmates at the local jail, or something else God has in mind just for you. Let this inspiring book help you find what's been missing in your faith.

Dirty Faith by David Nowell was published by Baker in September 2014 and is our 37675th best seller. The ISBN for Dirty Faith is 9780764212130.

Endorsements

"David Nowell has challenged not only our view of the church's responsibility in light of the worldwide plague of violence on children--from poverty to homelessness to prostitution--he has challenged our view of Jesus Christ. Nowell's Jesus has dirt under his fingernails and calluses on his hands. The Word becoming flesh is not just incarnation, it is a holiness that is willing to be stained by the brokenness of a world that would abuse an innocent child. I want my staff to read this book. It will challenge them to do what is required of them, and then some." - Dr. Walter Crouch, President/CEO, Appalachia Service Project

"Nowell's prophetic call strikes like a hammer on the anvil of Scripture. No reader will feel entirely comfortable here, myself included.
