Publisher's Description

In today’s church, there seems to be two well-intentioned groups. “Deed” people feed the hungry and help the poor, while “Word” people proclaim the gospel and engage in apologetics. The two often seem to compete with one another, but God always intended them to be partners. Sacrificial love can grab the attention of those we serve, opening their ears and minds to the words we share. In Tangible, author and Pastor Chris Sicks explains how God’s people can effectively introduce hurting people to God through intentional acts of kindness. This book does more than discuss these good ideas. It’s full of ways to make God known to the needy in your community today. Extra features include:
  • A thorough resource section
  • Ministry examples
  • Discussion questions for personal study or group discussion
By sharing both words of truth and deeds of mercy, God’s people will reflect Christ’s love—the most tangible proof of God’s existence.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Chris Sicks

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Chris Sicks serves as Pastor of Mercy at Alexandria Presbyterian Church in Virginia. Formerly an atheist who rejected the very existence of God, Chris has worked to make God's love tangible to homeless men, addicts, and needy children in Washington, DC. He is a member of the Christian Community Development Association and Evangelicals for Social Action, and teaches often on mercy ministry principles and refugee resettlement.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I want "word people" to see the power of merciful deeds to make their words credible and tangible. And, I hope "deed people" will grasp how necessary it is to speak the words of the gospel to anyone we care about.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope God's people will feel challenged, encouraged, and equipped to move boldly into the lives of hurting people around them.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  It is hard, humbling work to write a book—but the process made me run and cling to the Lord daily!

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  The person and ministry of Jesus is the best possible example of Word and Deed ministry working in harmony.
