Author Amy L. Sherman explores this central pervasive theme in Sharing God’s Heart for the Poor. In this two-part Bible study for individuals or small groups, she guides us through a multitude of Scriptures that convey exactly how God both regards those in need and how he expects His followers to respond.
'Restorers of Hope' tells their stories and identifies the keys to their success. And it goes further by challenging churches to take up Christ's command to "love your neighbor" and offering specific, practical guidance on how to reach out. By understanding the challenges of persistent poverty - and the opportunities afforded by welfare reform - you and your church will be better equipped to engage in redemptive ministry that presents the gospel as the true solution.
