By Ronald J. Sider
Dr. Sider speaks with both humility and confidence to his sisters and brothers in Christ, inviting us to choose trust over self-protection, courage over complacency. He asks us to live as if we actually believe Jesus when he calls us to love our neighbors as ourselves and when he tells us that in caring for the least of these we care for Christ himself. A challenging and uplifting read.
Why this book interests me:
When I picked up Ron’s book for the first time in 1982, as a college student, it brought muscle, shape and the excitement of possibility to my faith, which was hungering for real-world, practical ways to put that faith into action. It was a formative text for me. -Kristyn K
