Mercy - the mercy of Christ to and for us - and our demonstration of that mercy to those within and outside the Body of Christ is the key to the future of the Church, to mission and stewardship, to living our Christian lives together in love and forgiveness, to moving boldly and confidently into the future with courage in the Gospel.
The author, Rev. Matthew C. Harrison
is President of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. In this book Rev. Harrison provides for us an illustration of man's mercy and our responsibility not only as Lutherans, but as Christians to help those in need. This book includes a study guide to assist the reader in building his/her own mission field. When we think of "Mission Fields" we often think of places in Africa or some other country. The "Mission Field" also includes your next door neighbor, your community and your Church.
