God's concern for the poor is one of the central themes of the Bible. But with nearly 12 percent of Americans living in poverty and despair, it's obvious God's people are not fulfilling this critical calling. Reasons for failure are many, but recent changes in government policy and attitude offer the church of the twenty-first century a new opportunity to expand its role in helping society. A Revolution of Compassion explores the practical, political, and legal issues associated with government funding of faith-based organizations. By cooperating with the government and the private sector, faith-based agencies can address the problems of homelessness, unemployment, and rehabilitation while augmenting practical help with spiritual hope. Using powerful personal stories and interviews with prominent leaders, this well-rounded discussion calls Christians deeper into the journey of bringing God's grace and truth to those who are suffering.
