Why would someone risk his safety, destroy his schedule, and become dirty and bloody to help a needy person of another race and social class? And why would Jesus tell us Go and do likewise? Like the wounded man on the Jericho road, there are needy people in our path - the widow next door, the family strapped with medical bills, the homeless man outside our place of worship. God call us to be ministers of mercy to people in need of shelter, assistance, medical care, or just friendship.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 2/18/2014

    " The theoretical parts were especially helpful; the practical parts were very different from my context, so hard to figure out quite how to apply. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thomas Foster Foster | 2/16/2014

    " Lots of excellent content, but I found it hard-going and a bit dry. Much preferred Generous Justice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 2/15/2014

    " Keller challenges us, asking some hard questions based on the parable of the Good Samaritan: who is my neighbor? How should I help him? Whose responsibility is it to help - mine, the church, both? As usual, Keller has written a book that you simply cannot ignore after having finished it. A very convicting, yet very practical book all Christians should read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Skylerandbrandy | 1/31/2014

    " honestly - one of the best books ever! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 1/29/2014

    " I started readint this book for a class at church and really was impressed by his strong biblical agrgument that all of us are charged to be merciful. The early chapters are a powerful look at the parable of the good Samaritan. The later chapters are a thoughtful how-to for expanding mercy ministries in your church. I got many new ideas that I must now run around in my head for awhile. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 1/29/2014

    " Strikes a great balance between outlining the causes of poverty and hurt (both physical and spiritual) and how to minister to those in need of mercy. It also provides information relevant to the individual as well as the larger group/church, making it very useful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Alvers | 1/21/2014

    " This was very helpful and good book. In my opinion this is a settling book on subjects that are very muddy. For years the church has wondered in the wilderness of confusion regarding mercy ministry. People have turned to extremes of Gnostic belief in the soul and liberal expressions of humanity. Neither are biblical versions of humanity. Hardly any have found out how to live the gospel in the context of great need. Dr. Keller puts forward a consistent solution to the problem of need in the view of the gospel. The book is very good gospel application and detailed analysis of mercy ministry in the local church. It gives you the whats whos and hows of mercy ministry. It shows both the needs of people and the Biblical response to that in need. This is all to the glory of God and to the benefit of needy people for the here and hereafter. "

    " Wonderful book about the depth of mercy exercised by the Good Samaritan!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 1/3/2014

    " I had this book assigned to me as part of a Kingdom Justice class a few years ago and recently picked it up again as I realized my current pastor wrote it! It's very challenging, in prose and statement, but a must-read for me, at least. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 12/29/2013

    " Great, practical book on benevolence ministry. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob | 12/18/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book... Primarily for the thought exercises it forced me to go through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave Cruver | 11/21/2013

    " Keller makes the Gospel the heart of mercy ministry- where it should be. The Gospel is the motivation by which we do mercy. If we are not motivated by the Gospel in our mercy, our mercy is not mercy but self interest. This book is excellent! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andy Robinson | 10/16/2013

    " Amazing depth of insight and thoroughness in how to approach and implement ministries of benevolence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 9/18/2013

    " read it but be prepared for a paradigm shift "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beckie | 8/29/2013

    " I really love this book and keep it nearby - the only reason I gave it 4 stars for me is that there is quite a bit that relates to churches - but it is a scriptural call to recognizing what my "Jericho road" is "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 7/23/2013

    " Want to feel challenged about our call to minister to the poor? Is this optional as a Christian? I can only read a bit at a time, because I feel so convicted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Esther | 12/12/2012

    " if you really want to think about a gospel approach to mercy ministires. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Troxell | 6/12/2012

    " This book did a great job at showing that the Bible teaches that all Christians are called to be involved in mercy ministry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephie | 5/4/2012

    " Challenging. Prayfully and thoughtfully written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gregory Soderberg | 6/19/2011

    " I can't speak highly enough about this book! Keller combines deep theological insight with lots of practical tips. Read it, read it, read it! More importantly, APPLY IT! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Thompson | 5/25/2011

    " Thought provoking. It is challenging me in my faith! I like it...I think ;) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Henry | 1/20/2011

    " First half - really good, answers a lot of common questions with balanced theology. One major hole - maybe answered by new book, "Generous Justice"?

    Second half - extremely practical and aimed for a Western, developed country. Not sure how useful it would be in another context. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 1/17/2011

    " This was an excellent book on mercy ministry. I have the second edition, with the white cover. Keller gives us a balanced take on mercy. Some of his applications lean too heavily on church bureaucracy, in my thinking, when they rather should be organic, but one has to start somewhere. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gregory | 9/30/2010
