From the author of Let Justice Roll Down, chosen by Christianity Today as one of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals, come the 3 Rs of Christian Community Development brought up-to-date for the 21st century--Relocation: To be an effective community developer demands relocating into the community of need. We must live among those we are serving. We must become one of them. Their needs must become our needs. Reconciliation: In an incredible night of horrors Perkins was beaten to within an inch of his life by policemen in Brandon, Mississippi. It was as he was being beaten that he heard and accepted God's call to a ministry of reconciliation between blacks and whites. Be encouraged by the fruits of Perkins' ministries in the heart of racially torn Mississippi and throughout the world. Redistribution: The earth does not belong to us, but to God.

Justice is achieved by working with God to share His resources with the disenfranchised of the earth.
