Book Description Collins Dove, Australia, 1988. Soft Cover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 126 pages including b/w illustrations. The story of one man s developing understanding that Jesus teaching extends far beyond the boundaries set by denomination, neighbourhood or even nation. Today, the world is our neighbour. To love our neighbour as ourselves means loving the poor, the disinherited, the oppressed and imprisoned - and not merely loving in an abstract way, but trying to change the conditions, the material circumstances which limit and oppress. Peter Philp joined World Vision in 1976, and since then has travelled worldwide for the organisation - visiting Uganda under Obote, Ethiopia during the great famine of 1984-85, and many other third-world centres of poverty, famine and despair. But it was his experiences in Central and South America which most significantly deepened his understanding that the poor are indeed the Body of Christ, and that in them we have him always with us. They are the subjects and heroes of Journey with the Poor. Through the favelas of Brazil, the shanties and prisons of Colombia, the murderous political forays of El Salvador, the savage oppression lightened by Christian hope and faith in Guatemala, Peter Philp takes us on his inner and outer journey. We meet the martyrs and heroes of the ongoing battle for social justice in these places. We hear their words, listen to the people for whom they fight and have died. We are inspired by the courage and Christian faith they continue to display in circumstances which would drive most of us, content in our safety and comfort, to despair and denial. Their stories will inform, inspire and move you as they did Peter Philp. Here is your chance to make your own journey and join in the prayers and hopes of the thousands upon thousands already on the road. Size: 12mo. Seller Inventory # 056490
