Item description for Rescuing the Raggedy Man by Perry Pitney & Jim Killam...

Hope for the Hurting Think of the term "homeless person," and you'll see him: the raggedy man. Reeking of alcohol and cigarette smoke. Hasn't showered in weeks. Tattered old coat. Staggering down the sidewalk, clutching a bottle of cheap whiskey. Or maybe you see her. Mismatched clothes that others would have used for rags. Stringy, unwashed hair sticking out from under a dirty, knit stocking cap. Three kids, somewhere, from three different fathers. For more than four decades, in the name of Jesus Christ, the Rockford Rescue Mission has served compassion and generosity to raggedy people. Some look the part. But many more look like people you'd see every day. They've simply messed up, and life has unraveled. Hurting, hopeless, raggedy people walk among us-we just don't see past their masks. They're in our neighborhoods, our workplaces, and our churches. There even may be one in your mirror. If there's a common theme to the many stories you're about to read, it's this: For all who hurt, there is great news. God is in the rescue business. He changes lives and gives hope where all seemed hopeless, even for raggedy people like us.

Reviews - What do customers think about Rescuing the Raggedy Man?

The Raggedy man  Oct 29, 2005
The book The Raggedy Man is a history of the Rockford Rescue Mission. For me as a long time member of the Rockford community and my association with the Rescue Mission it started out as a trip down memory lane. Through my church I had toured the original mission building on Kishwaukee street then later I, as G.O. Pitney said, farmed out my kids and volunteered at the Rescue Mission on Madison street sorting clothes and helping with weekly bible studies on family day. I remembered the people Perry mentioned and the way the programs were run and I especially liked the memories shared by G.O. and Nadine. Later I cried as Perry recounted his journey with drug addition and his victory over it. The book has a special meaning to me as I followed the mission's progress and the progress of the Pitney family for the last 37 years. I think it is important to mention that the book also emphasizes the message of the gospel which is the whole reason for the existence of the mission and that true recovery is possible through the saving power of Jesus Christ. A prologue note. Earlier this year (2005) in the spring Perry Pitney was killed in a one car auto accident. God called him home, his healing is complete. Hope Place was packed with over 300 people paying their respects to the memory of Perry.
