In Bible times, God maintained a special provision for the less fortunate. As His people harvested their fields, they were instructed to always leave a portion of the crops for those in need. Today, God's heart continues to beat for the poor, the widows, and the fatherless. And as His children, our divine commission remains the same, a directive that's nothing less than the heart of the Christian message.

Author Tom Davis encourages us to move beyond words and become Christ to those in need. Join Tom as he shares a journey from around the world and our own backyard as people's lives are changed through the power of compassion. Filled with remarkable stories of hope and mercy, Fields of the Fatherless will inspire you to love "the least of these," and discover the joy found in becoming the hands and feet of Christ, His way.

Top Highlights

“The Hebrew word for blessing is baruch. It implies being hunted down and pursued by the favor of the Lord.” (source)

“According to the Bible, the needs of the poor are to be absorbed into society. The needs of the fatherless aren’t only financial, so throwing a check at the problem once a month is not the answer. The fatherless have social, emotional, and spiritual needs money alone can’t solve.” (source)

“Allow me to introduce you to those people God wants us to put at the top of our priority list: the orphans, widows, and aliens (strangers). These are the weak, the underprivileged, and the needy among us, and they all have a desperate need of provision and protection.” (source)

“God’s blessing is not just a nice thing to have; it’s a necessity for those who desire to walk in genuine satisfaction” (source)

“contemporary Christianity leads us to believe the lie that our faith was all about our comfort.” (source)
