Item description for Stories from Below the Poverty Line: Urban Lessons for Today's Mission by George D. Beukema...

In this book George Beukema both ministers and calls and justice. From East Harlem to Cleveland to Chicago, his gift of listening to and telling stories opens the door for deeper spiritual and political truths. It is a chronicle of one man's journey to understanding, but it contains broader lessons for us all.

Publishers Description
From real stories of people who experience urban poverty spring hope and inspiration for today's church. Stories from Below the Poverty Line provides fresh, compelling lessons for Christians preparing for mission in this new century.

Chronicled are accounts of tragedy and triumph in the inner city that bring new meaning to age-old Christian themes. From the homeless we learn about community, from public housing residents about servanthood, from a gang leader about grace, and from a Guatemalan mother poised to commit family suicide about hope.

Equally compelling are bridge-building links between urban and non-urban settings.

Reviews - What do customers think about Stories from Below the Poverty Line: Urban Lessons for Today's Mission?

Just Powerful  May 18, 2005
This book, written by a sort of evangelical/reformed Christian, is a must read for everyone who ever ventures an opinion on any of the social problems related to poverty. This guy has actually BEEN there and he brings a different and very helpful veiw to anyone who REALLY wants to understand and address the problems (this book will be less helpful for those who are only interested in assigning blame). This book is a series of personal stories with great emotional weight. They are presented out of Chronological order, which can be a bit confusing at times (where are they living now? how old is he?). But the overall effect of the book is a sober rethinking of many of our opinions and convictions about the problem of poverty. This book will challenge you - and it might even discourage you - but it will certainly get you thinking in new directions.
