Item description for Called To Care by Robert Kysar...
Overview Treating the whole of Scripture, Robert Kysar forges the connections between the practice of social ministry and the biblical images undergirding and motivating that ministry. Social ministry is more than charity: It wrestles with the very structures and systems that deprive and oppress. This book examines not only the usual "justice" texts but also those that seem to counter this position and shows how the Bible addresses practical, contemporary concerns and fears.
Publishers Description Explores the reasons for social ministry as they arise in the witness of Scripture-not only the usual justice texts but also those that seem to counter this position. Shows how the Bible addresses practical, contemporary concerns and fears.

A Motivator for Congregational Social Ministry Teams! Sep 28, 2000
Dr. Kysar provides 1st) the Biblical images of Christian Care and Social action and 2nd) practical helps for overcoming hurdles and applying the images to the congregation's ministry. He argues that a congregation's societal involvement is not secondary, but is foundational to its life of faith. He convinces us to move from merely humanitarian and charitable motivations to a Social Ministry that hungers for God's justice and mission.
