This month’s free book at Christianaudio.com is Tim Keller’s book Ministries of Mercy: the Call of the Jericho Road (coupon code AUG2010). Tim Keller is the renowned pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City. Ministries of Mercy is the published edition of Tim’s doctoral dissertation (D.Min.) which he did at Westminster Theological Seminary. Here is the blurb:
Why would someone risk his safety, destroy his schedule, and become dirty and bloody to help a needy person of another race and social class? And why would Jesus tell us “Go and do likewise”? Like the wounded man on the Jericho road, there are needy people in our path- the widow next door, the family strapped with medical bills, the homeless man outside our place of worship. God call us to be ministers of mercy to people in need of shelter, assistance, medical care, or just friendship.
