This book consists of 12 small-group study sessions for adults to challenge individuals and congregations to stand with those who have the least. With care and insight based on their years of experience, the authors explore the biblical and theological roots of ministry in the margin and offer practical, hands-on help for how to minister with - not to - those who live and work at the edge of society.
