Synopsis: As Churches boast mightily about memberships, campuses, budgets, staffs, and so on, the comment from a needy community is, "So what!"
How shall we respond to needy communities? Shall we, like many, see social advocacy as work for the government and social service agencies, instead of the Church?
This book is not a how-to as much as it is one for self-reflection. Dr. Mims takes the reader on a self-examining journey through the difficult and often painful process of examination of God's social mandate, traditional roles, philosophical structures, church-community relationship boundaries, and identification of new directions for readdressing the Church's social advocacy role.
This book is a must for every pastor, Church leader, and member concerned about the role of the Church in the context of the needy. It is designed for individual, group, or class use for serious reflection and dialogue on the role of the Church in a disenfranchised community focusing on:
Theological Claims for Social Engagement
Planning Strategies for Advocacy Engagement
Movement Towards a Transformational Context
Leadership Paradigm Shift
Social Advocacy Challenges
Rethinking Programs of the Church
