About

Mercy ministry isn’t a new concept. It’s an integral outworking of your faith that is essential to your life as a Christian. But what does it look like? Where does it begin?

Mercy ministry begins with recognition of suffering and continues with gratitude and love. Here Ryken and Toly take an incisive look at mercy ministry, exploring its necessity, theological roots, and legacy in the church throughout history. They provide insights on starting in mercy ministry both as an individual and a church. Examples and tips help you to imitate Christ in practical, far-reaching ways that testify to his love.

Basics of the Faith booklets introduce readers to basic Reformed doctrine and practice. On issues of church government and practice they reflect that framework—otherwise they are suitable for all church situations.

Endorsements

“This is the best brief description of the church’s ministry of mercy that I know. The authors lay a concise but rich theological foundation for it, sketch some of its historic forms, and give good practical principles and examples to enable local congregations to get moving. I highly recommend it.”

—Tim Keller, Senior Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church
