Viv Grigg challenges us to reexamine our strategies and design new approaches that will build Christ’s kingdom among the poor who comprise nearly half the world.
When he entered the Manila squatter settlement of Tatalon in 1979, Grigg knew what he wanted to do but not how to do it. The need was obvious – to establish a Christian church among Asia’s forgotten people, the impoverished slum dwellers of its vast megalopolises. The challenge was to find a way that did not treat people’s spiritual needs in isolation from their poverty, without simply becoming another economic or social relief program with no evangelistic component. This book is the enthralling story of how the author met and solved this problem.
