Unlocking a Broken World

A Story of Discovery
  • By Scott &. Connie Payne
Product Description

When Scott and Connie Payne arrived at Inner City Mission, they thought they understood homelessness. Soon their beliefs collided with a world beyond their understanding. The solutions they offered-taken from America's playbook on poverty-failed to bring real answers. People kept falling back into homelessness.

Praying for wisdom, the Paynes embarked on a seven-year quest to study homelessness at its core. To their surprise, the answers God provided came through unlikely people.

"What's this love of Jesus you're talking about?" Elaine asked Scott one day. "I've been loved in every position known to man."

Unlocking a Broken World is the Paynes' discovery of truth in an unexpected place. Now today, after hundreds of stories and thousands of hours working on the front lines of homelessness, they claim this:

The war on poverty in America has been won.

If you're curious about homelessness or want to help someone in crisis, Unlocking a Broken World will enlighten you and may even inspire you to rethink how you do ministry. One thing for certain, you will never look at "the least of these" among us in the same way.
