Understanding Compassion

Full Product Description

This book is for everyone who seeks the compassionate heart of God and cares about the children of our world. Set in the light of the work of the international charity, Compassion, which works to alleviate worldwide child poverty, the material explores the nature of compassion through biblical insight and real-life stories.

The charity Compassion believes that every child has the right to know that he or she has been created and is loved by God. Practical demonstrations of God’s love are vital for the world’s poorest children and, since 1952, Compassion has sought to fight against child poverty and see children develop into all that God intended them to be. Today, through its sponsorship programmes, which offer practical and prayerful support, the charity has helped over one million children in 23 countries around the world.

Compassion flows from the triune heart of God. It is not a personal attribute or talent, but a way of being together-a mutual communal vocation. Each one of us is on a common journey with common goals. If we do not have hearts of compassion then we condone poverty and turn our backs on suffering.

Royalties from the sales of this book go to support the work of Compassion.
