Product Description

If you can't stand four-letter words, you shouldn't read this book. This book contains expletive language used by hard living people, so that readers will better understand the hard living culture and discover ways to minister within it. "Through stories of hard-living people and pastors who minister with them, Tex Sample challenges mainline churches to break the yoke of middle-class captivity and join with the Christ who lives among the poor and marginalized. The book is inspirational, analytical, and practical in its treatment of an issue too long ignored by contemporary church leadership." - Kenneth L. Carder, Resident Bishop, Nashville Area, The United Methodist Church
