Faith Acts: A Provocative Call to Live What You Believe
Most Christians say they believe the Bible, but how many actually live like it? Faith Acts, a provocative and practical look at James 1:22, uses scriptural and personal ministry insights to show how authentic faith is based on how we apply the Bible not on how much we claim we believe it. Including real-life stories from one of the fastest-growing homeless churches in America, you'll see how the hope of Christ can change the worst of circumstances when ordinary believers commit to the principles of God's Word and -- do what it says.
