"Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says." -James 1:22 Roughly 4,000 people experience homelessness in Chattanooga each year, and the city is home to numerous organizations dedicated to serving them. But no matter how hard they try to reach everyone, Chattanooga''s homeless aid agencies simply can''t. To make a difference in the lives of those in greatest need, it required more than cathedrals and Bible studies-it required action. Action that began with one homeless man under a bridge eventually grew into a dozen outdoor church services across a city, making it one of the fastest-growing churches in the community and among the largest homeless churches in North America. In Faith Acts, activists and popular writers Dillon Burroughs and Jimmy Turner offer scriptural and personal ministry insights to show that authentic faith is based on how we apply the Bible, not on how much we claim to believe its words. Sharing real-life stories of assisting children living out of hotels, alcoholics dying on the street, and addicts looking for a reason to live, these authors offer a provocative look at how the hope of Christ can change even the worst circumstances-when ordinary, Christian believers commit to the principles of God''s Word and "do what it says."
Dillon Burroughs is a best-selling author and coauthor of more than thirty books on issues of spirituality and culture. Known for his collaborative efforts with faith-based leaders, his works range from editing The Apologetics Study Bible for Students to serving behind the scenes for some of today''s New York Times best-selling authors...
