Book Review Mercy Rising by Amber Robinson

It’s not that I don’t care, I just don’t know what to do,
I'm on emotional overload . . . How can I care for social justice when I feel broken . . . What the heck is social justice . . . Is it even possible for a middle-class, exhausted family to do anything meaningful for others?
Do these questions often come to your mind as your going about your daily activities. You wonder why doesn't someone help? What can I do?
In Mercy Rising author Amber Robinson answers these questions and offers tools and suggestion to get started. Each chapter is filled with helpful hints. The book is organized and easy to read. It's 192 pages are filled with true stories of average people who have stepped out and stepped up to make a difference in the world around them.
Filled with sound biblical wisdom the reader is encouraged to begin to look around and think about how he or she can live out their faith to a world so much in need.
Included at the end of the book are sections of resources including an entire section of scripture relating to justice. I was amazed to learn there are 2,500 verses relating to justice.
Because Mercy Rising fits the theme of Monday Missions I am going to feature it every Monday during September. I hope you'll come back and be inspired and encouraged to live out these words . . . 'For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you took me in.'
