Which is it? Help them or tell them? Be like Jesus or talk about Jesus? Social action or gospel proclamation? Quite often we find ourselves gravitating toward one of those modes over the other-at times going so far as to pit word against deed, as if the two were mutually exclusive. Yet Good News to the Poor shows us how both are integrated in the biblical vision of mission so that we may become both evangelists and activists – Christians who talk the talk and who walk the walk.
