Summary
In this motivational and highly practical book, Timothy Keller shows how caring for those in need is the duty of every believer – as fundamental to Christian living as evangelism, discipleship and worship. But he doesn’t stop there. He sets out an array of tried-and-tested measures that will encourage and equip Christians of all persuasions to become more committed and more effective in carrying out this vital ministry.

Press Reviews

I commend this book to all who would heed Jesus’ call to be ministers of mercy: to walk with him along the paths of justice, mercy and truth.

- John Sentamu, Archbishop of York

Tim Keller's ministry had been a neon signpost for Christian's looking for biblical reasons for social engagement. Ministries of Mercy explores the story of the Good Samaritan as a compelling basis for acts of mercy.

- Joel Edwards, General Director of the Evangelical Alliance, 1997-2009

Tim Keller has approached a challenging subject with typical biblical integrity.

- Eleanor Mumford, founder of Vineyard Churches, UK and Ireland
