The God Impulse: The Power of Mercy in an Unmerciful World
For Jesus, truth and mercy went hand in hand. Where he preached he also healed. He didn't outsource one or the other to biblical scholars or nonprofit ministries. He presented the truth of the gospel through his words and his actions, and he did it all in a hands-on, relational way. And the reaction was the same wherever he went--people were amazed.

Today we seem to have lost this powerful pattern of self-giving love, focusing on truth at the expense of mercy or on mercy at the expense of truth, and often failing to build genuine, lasting relationships with the people around us.

In The God Impulse, Jack Alexander helps us recover Jesus's model, showing through biblical and modern real-life stories that God's first impulse toward us is mercy. He then sets forth a pattern for us to follow--to see, go, do, and endure--that not only spreads truth and love to those around us who are suffering but also causes them to gasp in amazement and consider the claims of the gospel for themselves.

East-West Ministries International
East-West Ministries began because two men couldn’t resist the call of Christ’s great mission . . . go into the world and multiply His disciples.

East-West Founders John Maisel and Bud Toole spent the 1980s traveling secretly behind the Iron Curtain. During this time, the two men trained 4,000 to 5,000 students underground through Biblical Education by Extension (BEE).

Communist governments soon collapsed—resulting in the fall of the Iron Curtain in the early 1990s. The 300 million people who had been taught the doctrines of atheism began to seek real answers . . . resulting in an incredible spiritual hunger.

A new need arose—to train church planters and pastors in these nations characterized by restricted Christian activity during its 70 years of communism. John Maisel and Bud Toole recognized this need and responded.
