Good News to the Poor
Full Product Description
Throughout history, men and women such as Wilberforce and Shaftesbury, Carey and Booth have recognized a call to help the needy. Others have argued that our first task is evangelism, that Christians should not meddle in politics, that social action is a distraction. Do we serve Christ through preaching his Word, or should we use words only when necessary?
Tim Chester argues passionately that evangelism and social action are inseparable, as two arms of the church's mission. He presents a biblical case for truly evangelical social action, that is shaped and inspired by the gospel. He shows how social activity is a response to evangelism, a bridge and a partner to it. He urges conservatives not to marginalize those who uphold the cause of the oppressed, and those involved in social action not to neglect the preaching of the Word.
Good News to the Poor by Tim Chester was published by Intervarsity Press in April 2004 and is our 18249th best seller. The ISBN for Good News to the Poor is 9781844740192.

"'A vital challenge to gospel people to follow in the footsteps of William Carey. Consistent, mission-minded evangelicals have always refused to choose between a commitment to gospel proclamation and an active concern for the poor. Tim Chester digs deep into the Bible to show us why both are vital, and what it means to be Christ's people in a world of need." Keith Walker, Director of SIM-UK/N. Europe
"This important, well-written book is a must-read for those looking for a way to integrate word and deed mission to advance God's purposes in our needy world." Tom Sine, author of 'Living on Purpose: Finding God's Best For Your Life'
