How to Help the Addicted Book Series
OUTREACH: Such Were Some of You
IN-REACH: Rescue & Recover
The word “restore” is literally a medical term describing the proper setting of a broken bone in order that mending may take place, returning the injured person to a place of optimum health. When God’s people “fall” into sin, their injuries require spiritual orthopedic assistance, and God calls upon the mature Christians in every church to a ministry of restoration.
In this book, Paul Kingsbury expounds on Galatians 6:1-10, which gives us specific biblical instruction on the restoration of people of whom the Bible says have been “overtaken in a fault.”Galatians 6 begins with an appeal to the “brethren”…a family relationship that believers in the Lord Jesus Christ have one to another. This bond immediately magnifies the importance of our duty to engage in a ministry of restoration. We are, after all, family!
Book one of this series, Such Where Some of You, is designed to give instruction to reaching those outside of your church, those who are struggling in your community. Book two, Rescue & Recover, was written to give instruction for ministering to those who are now in your church. And finally, the third book in this series, Radical Restoration, is designed to re-reach those who have left the church, with a plan to see them return. Out-reach, In-Reach, and Re-Reach can be learned from a biblical perspective which guarantees optimal success
