Empty Pockets, Open Hearts is a story about the troubles of ministering American poverty. It opens biblical passages with a biblical application.

Empty Pockets, Open Hearts could easily be used for Bible studies, midweek book studies, Sunday Bible studies, and Bible colleges. It would make a good info textbook for anyone studying urban ministry.

The problems of American poverty grow larger. A great gap has divided those who have from those who have not. Empty Pockets, Open Hearts embraces the great suffering that come with incarnational ministry to the poor. It also tells you that our God has a plan. That plan is victory and joy for those who lay down their lives in service to God and the people that God calls the least of these.

God grants victory to the following:

—Anyone who will first seek his kingdom and righteousness

—Children in need of education

—The hungry

—Strangers in the land or immigrants

—Orphans and widows

—The fatherless

—The addicted


—The oppressed

—And all of us trying to help
