After 27 years as a journalist Deb Richardson-Moore became a Baptist pastor.  She became the pastor at Triune Mercy Center.  At Triune she had to go through many different challenges.  She has had to deal with break-ins, people on drugs, the homeless, and prostitutes.  And among all the negativity, Christ was there protecting and changing the lives of all involved.  Deb Richardson-Moore took a difficult situation and made a safe place for all.

Excerpt from the book!

About the Author-

Deb Richardson-Moore is the pastor of Triune Mercy Center in Greenville, South Carolina.  She is married and has three grown children.  This is her first book.






My thoughts-

I was very inspired by Deb Richardson-Moore and the work she has done and issues she has overcome at Triune.  She is such a strong woman and has had such courage to continue with her work as a pastor when there were so many difficult times.  I know that I couldn’t do everything she does with her inner-city church.

This book was well written and I had a hard time putting it down, because I wanted to know what would happen to her and the people involved with the church.  There are many people who are homeless who help her in different ways and there are other churches as well.  I ‘m surprised she was able to do everything and still develop a sermon.

I would have enjoyed reading a little bit more about her family life.  I know that she lived in an area that was a lot different than her church and more comparison would have helped me understand how different her life is. 

If you are looking for a book about inspirational women or pastors or a book about an inner-city church or all three then this book is for you.  Even if you aren’t looking for those subjects this book is still a must read.
