Item description for Companion to the Poor: Christ in the Urban Slums by Viv Grigg...

While in a Manilla squatter settlement of Tatalon in 1979, Viv Grigg knew what he wanted to do, but not how to do it. Readers will be challenged to reexamine strategies and design new approaches that will build Christ's kingdom among the poor - who comprise nearly half the world.

Publishers Description
When he entered the Manila squatter settlement of Tatalon in 1979, Grigg knew what he wanted to do but not how to do it. The need was obvious - to establish a Christian church among Asia's forgotten people, the impoverished slum dwellers of its vast megalopolises. The challenge was to find a way that did not treat people's spiritual needs in isolation from their poverty, without simply becoming another economic or social relief program with no evangelistic component.This book is the enthralling story of how the author met and solved this problem. But in a sense, it is an unfinished story. What has begun is but the beginning of the founding of a Christian community in a dark place.This is not Viv Grigg's story alone, but God's story. For it is God who is working in Tatalon and urban slums like it, and giving people a hope that affects all of life. Viv Grigg challenges us to reexamine our strategies and design new approaches that will build Christ's kingdom among the poor "who comprise nearly half the world."
