The book that ignited a generation of Christian leaders, Tim Keller's Ministries of Mercy is available for the first time in a UK edition. Redesigned, and with a foreword from John Sentamu, this new edition of Ministries of Mercy is here to guide a whole new group or readers and leaders in following Jesus' call towards compassion, and towards works of mercy.
Tim Keller's foundational book has been an outstanding resource for such leaders as John Piper, Eleanor Mumford, and John Sentamu. Covering both the principles of ministry, as well as the practicalities, Keller unfolds a timeless calling for anyone looking for purpose in ministry. From how to start a grassroots ministry, to living out the examples found in the parable of the Good Samaritan, you'll soon be fired up in word and deed to serve your community for God.
As well as a new foreword by John Sentamu, each chapter of the book ends with group discussion questions to help Churches and groups better realise their calling, and work through what to do about it.
Ministries of Mercy will equip you to meet the needs of others, to live and love by example, and be inspire others to do the same.
It's a resource for reaching out, and a calling card for caring
Ministries of Mercy by Timothy Keller was published by SPCK Publishing in August 2017 and is our 4559th best seller. The ISBN for Ministries of Mercy is 9780281078332.
Like the Samaritan who found a dying man on the road to Jericho, we're aware of people in need around us: the widow next door, the family strapped with medical bills, the homeless man outside our church. God calls us to help them, whether they need shelter, assistance, medical care, or just friendship.
Tim Keller shows that caring for these people is the job of every believer, as fundamental to Christian living as evangelism, discipleship, and worship. But he doesn't stop there. He tackles a range of thorny practical issues as he shows how we can carry out this vital ministry as individuals, families, and churches.
