The disciples walked with Jesus outside the four walls of the temple and learned what sharing the Kingdom message was truly all about. In the Descent to Compassion, the author takes the reader beyond Sunday morning service, past evangelism projects, and out into the highways and hedges where life happens and does not stop for a 30-minute sermon. The author takes the reader to where Jesus is walking and working everyday, desiring His people to join Him in the work. Divine moments happen everyday because God is always at work. Each and everyday we get up, if we open our eyes, we can see the hurting and we can see Jesus actively pursuing their hearts. We have the option of joining Him or walking away. Through experiencing these moments of divine encounter, our lives receive fresh meaning. Living this kind of compassionate lifestyle keeps one other-focused instead of self-focused. Good works have been prepared in advanced for us and the Lord is ready to lead us by the hand to discover where those works exist. The Descent to Compassion speaks of how to live a life full of inspiration and true fulfillment as the reader follows Christ into the sea of humanity all around. Jesus touched the untouchables and He is asking His people to descend to the place of humility and compassion and touch those whom He would touch- every hurting heart.

Looking for a feel-good, tickle the ear kind of book? Then you probably do not want to read “The Descent to Compassion.” However, if you need to be challenged in your walk with Christ (and who doesn’t?), plus get to the heart of how far you are willing to obey the callings of God, then this is a must read for you! Follow along as Steve takes readers on his (and his family’s) journey from North Carolina, to California, to the center of the Tenderloin district in San Francisco to minister to the physically, emotionally, financially, and spiritually down-trodden. Take your time to read each passage slowly, allowing for the senses to take you on the journey with him, as Steve shares servanthood to the homeless, meeting their needs…just as God is meeting THEIR needs in the midst of it all. Written with a spirit of vulnerability and humility and spiced with dashes of humor, “The Descent to Compassion” will have the reader crying, laughing, and throughout the whole, thinking, “How can I be the one who does for Him, by doing for the least?” Read with a heart prepared to be changed.
This is a story of one family’s call into the “road less traveled”. The author takes you along for the ride and makes each story come to life, just as if the reader were experiencing these events first hand. Some very remarkable stories are shared through Wright’s 13 years of ministry in “the wrong side of the tracks” in San Francisco. The reader will be required to look into his/her own heart to see how they would have reacted. A great read and well worth the time.
I look forward to reading more from this author!
This book will open the heart to what must be done to reach into the hearts of the marginalized and disenfranchised here in America or even across this world. Pastor Steve Wright has written not a book but a model of earned and learned compassion. Each page of this book shows the heart of a family that wanted one thing, and that was to serve the Lord in the city of San Francisco that was filled with poverty and hurting people. As you read through the pages don’t be surprised if you reach for a napkin or hankerchief to wipe the tears that are streaming down your cheeks. That is how moving this book is. It is as though, you are walking through the Tenderloin area of San Francisco with Pastor Steve and his staff. This book is also challenging to all who have ever desired to live out loud “Compassion Ministry”. I look forward to the next book published by Pastor Steve Wright. Enjoy!
Straight to the heart.
I chose to read this book slowly and deliberately. Inside each chapter is not only the Author’s personal story….but every chapter also is filled with nuggets of wisdom, seeds of challenges and stories of real people. We live in a world filled with lost, dying and hurting individuals. Steve Wright shares beautifully his God-directed journey….leading to his “Descent to Compassion”…leaving the reader to ponder how to do the same. I highly recommend this book.
