Item description for By The Way by Preston Williams II...
Overview This book is a provocative look at the "who", "what", "when", "where" and "why" of those who have fallen by the wayside and have matriculated into the abyss of hopelessness and despair. An indictment is issued to the churches that should be praying and seeking the peace of their inner cities, and who are not. Special focus is given in the first chapter on how the traditional church has missed the mark of the highway and hedge ministry of Jesus' commission. As you continue exploring the text you will find the unfortunate acceptance of the generational strongholds of poverty, distorted perceptions of self, and eventual self-destruction passed on by previous generation.

A Must Read for Christians, Conservatives, and Liberals Aug 15, 2002
Kudos to Dr. Preston Williams II for his dedication, compassion, and passion for service to individuals in the 'By Ways'. This book is a must read for Christians, conservatives, and liberals. In other words, most Americans. America can not be the complete great nation that it almost is, without all its citizens including those in the urban centers and other forgotten areas that are distinguished with poverty and violence. His solutions to the problems of these urban areas are refreshing and make sense, a combination of social sciences, Christianity, hope and forward thinking. Our prayers and resources should go to the rare men and women like Dr. Williams who serve and care for the needy, hopeless and forgotten.
Provocative and Insightful Jul 5, 2002
Dr. Preston Williams takes us beyond the theoretical and hypothetical to the hands-on and feet-on-the-street knowledge of his subject. Few have written as pointedly on the subject of "the city" and its need for true renewal through a confrontation with the Gospel and the power of the Holy Spirit to change lives, homes, communities, and then cities. This book is a must read for every one. Thank you Dr. Williams for your insight, vision, and passion for this very needy and neglected discipline.
