This is an amazingly well written work, a genuine testimony of hope in the dark recesses of our times. The words are laid out with an artist's precision, and their smoothness makes this not just a powerful read, but a genuine entry into a world we all need to know better. Perhaps the most important thing I can say about this is, I found Jesus in these pages. Highly recommended.--Davis Bunn (6/27/2012 12:00:00 AM)
Going from journalist to Baptist pastor and rescuer of Greeville, S.C.'s homeless involves some amazing feats of grace, not to mention discerning judgments. Richardson-Moore servies up unflinching truths with smart writing and self-deprecating humor in recalling this rigorous test of faith. . . . This is a tale of grit and true mercy.-- "Booklist" (10/1/2012 12:00:00 AM)
"Deb Richardson-Moore is one of my 'most admired' people. I love her heart, her experience-learned wisdom, her honesty and her passion. You will praise God for the work He is doing at the Triune Mercy Center."--Ruth Graham (10/1/2012 12:00:00 AM)
"At the Triune Center, Deb not only found Christ among 'the least of these, ' but she also experienced Christ drawing her into His grand drama of redemption. Here is a loving, realistic account of a life commandeered for the work of God's Kingdom."--Will Willimon (10/1/2012 12:00:00 AM)
