People of Compassion
|by Dave Andrews
People of Compassion is a book of 40 short stories about 40 wonderful men and women from all over the world, who lived lives of consistent, gentle, nonviolent service at crucial times in history.
These stories first saw the light of day in Target, a publication of TEAR Australia, a Christian aid agency for whom I work. Each of the stories was received with such enthusiasm, it was decided to publish 40 in this collection.
People of Compassion is a perfect book for 40 days of personal reflection. It is a brilliant resource for stories to tell groups or publish in newsletters.
Dave Andrews, explores the lives of 40 Christians who have left their mark on the world. Ranging from the generous St Nicholas to the brave Helen Keller, People of Compassion unpacks the meaning of love, peace and justice - prompting readers to reflect on their own lives. There are 'suggestions for meditation' at the end of each biography, as well as Gospel quotes to help people consider how they can be the good news. 'When I think of people making a difference in the world, I think of John Wesley and Caroline Chisholm. These great Christian figures were people just like you and me, but they saw a need and they did something about it', says Andrews.
