City on Our Knees (Review)

                                             

My Thoughts
I love testimonial style books, they inspire me so much.  These testimonies were so moving.  You will find yourself laughing and crying along with the stories.  Each story has a profound message with the underlying message and theme of the entire book, being about helping the downtrodden.  
And while no one rarely agrees with everything others have to say, this book if you allow it to, will stir your heart to help others.  To reach out to a lost and dying world around you.
4 stars from this reviewer.  A wonderful book filled with great stories of faith.

About the book
When we step across the line
We can sail across the sea

Amazing things happen when people have the courage to live, work, and pray in the spirit of unity and peace. Often, though, to make these amazing things happen, we have to step out of our comfort zone and into a world we find uncomfortable or intimidating. Sometimes that world is physical; other times it can be emotional, relational, or spiritual.

City on Our Knees challenges you to take the first step. It offers stories of people who have stepped across lines. Lines of discrimination, persecution, doubt, prejudice, pride, bitterness, self-isolation, and despair. These are not my stories. They are their stories--stories that have inspired me, stories I want to share with you. I pray and hope that you will be inspired to see how just one person, or one small group, can be a mechanism for change.

God can use us right here, right now,
but we gotta start somewhere.
