This book describes how the model for compassion that Jesus demonstrated by his life and teaching can be applied by Christians today who are involved in compassion ministries. The stories and illustrations come from the gospels and from my 35 years as a missionary surgeon working in central Africa, among the poor.

The central teaching Jesus gave was the story that has come to be known as "The Good Samaritan," in Matthew chapter 10. But Jesus did not stop there, urging his followers to also proclaim his message of forgiveness and salvation through faith in him, and to appropriate God's power to heal the sick through prayer. This teaching is in sharp contrast to humanitarian compassion. I am open to some depiction or evocation of the Good Samaritan in his act of mercy, or something more modern, even if it is somewhat (though not totally) abstract. The book challenges where much of Christendom is going with mercy, so I would prefer that the cover be more edgy than mellow. Helping those who suffer, praying for the sick, and telling dying people about Jesus is not neat and clean, but messy and even chaotic at times.
I would like the cover to somehow evoke acts of compassion (doing more than just feelings), the truth of the gospel, and the miraculous power of God to overcome human suffering through faith and prayer. Since most of my illustrations come from the jungles of central Africa (Gabon) where I served as a surgeon for 35 years, it would not be appropriate to picture a desert or an urban setting. My book "On Call" (available on Amazon.com) tells part of my story, and the experiences that led to this book, as does the sequel, "The Hand on My Scalpel." At this point I am open to an abstract approach, but also something like a drawing illustrating a compassionate act.
