Publisher's Description

A fractured church with a crippled mission finds healing through brokenness.


Overview


Most of us accustomed to a Western, or American, style of doing church have never seen the situations or met the people Christopher Heuertz describes firsthand. We have not lived in tent cities or shared meals composed almost entirely of refuse. We have not confronted the horror of merely surviving in the face of inhumane evil and violence.

Heuertz call us to become personally involved in the mission of God by entering into the world of the poor and broken. He encourages us to see the less fortunate, less educated, and less privileged not as a mission field to merely convert and remake into our image. Rather, we should see the poor, the illiterate, and the broken as healthy, necessary members of the body of Christ.

This study will examine some of the major themes from Christopher Heuertz s article and will discuss the biblical rationale for this startling point of view.
