An international trip through heart-break and miracles, The Least of These presents snippets from the lives of some of the "least of these," from people we might very easily pass by if we met them on the street. In India, a severally deformed, almost faceless, young woman breaks into song, "I have joy that the world didn’t give me, and the world can’t take it away" (p. 114). Ron Ruthruff works with the New Horizon Ministries in Seattle, Washington. This ministry reaches out to the cast offs of society. Ruthruff verbalizes many telling points, for instance: "What would it mean if we listened and learned as we served the widow, orphan, and stranger?" (p. 19). "They're running from unsafe environments and abuse. God actively pursues and welcomes home the lost" (p. 45). In America, a young man has been living on the streets. He was offered drugs by his own mother when he was 12 years old and has a brother in prison. Now this young man faces a life as an invalid because of a bad dose of heroin. He says, "I'm going to be okay. God is taking car of me. I took my legs and my arm away from myself. God spared my mind, my speech, and my one good arm" (p. 73).

Discount no one! That's the message of The Least of These. Ruthruff has traveled the U.S. and the world in his ministry. In all places where he has ministered to street youth, he has found them salvageable by the hand of God. Ruthruff urges us to emulate Jesus who looked ". . . beyond tormented souls and proclaimed that those who sit on the margins of our culture and on our city curbs are created in the image of God" (p. 115). The Least of These is a must-read book. Don’t miss it. – Donna Eggett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
