    1. If pure and faultless religion is to care for orphans and widows in their distress, how many of us are REALLY walking in a pure and faultless religion This short but profound book will challenge you to put feet to your faith action to your beliefs Fields of the Fatherless is about giving ourselves to sacrificial, compassionate living It s about turning our focus outward, even to our own hurt It s about not being afraid to get involved Adoption is definitely a part of this response, but Fields of [...]

    2. This book was good, i liked it I wanted to like it than I did, but I don t think I m the intended audience This book is written for Americans who desire to be introduced to what God says in the Bible about caring for orphans, widows, and immigrants The information presented is simple and straight ahead A good deal of Scripture is covered Though I didn t always agree with some points of the author s exegesis, I do agree with his overall arguement that care of the needy is central to Biblical mis [...]

    3. This was a quick read, but full of so many truths about God and His heart for the needy His heart is seen throughout both the Old and New Testaments and Davis does a good job of using these Scriptures as a basis for his message God cares for the least of these and we are required to, as well I love Davis honest, but compassionate way of writing truth The stories he shares are both his own and those of whom he has met along the way I recommend this book to all believers as a genuine challenge to [...]

    4. A shorter read meaning the ideas can t really be develop in as great of depth I also felt it focused too much on us and our ability to achieve and motivate ourselves I would recommend The Justice Calling by Hoang and Johnson.

    5. I m going to be honest After reading What Difference Do It Make this book didn t quite measure up I think Tom Davis is awesome He is a humanitarian, he does wonderful things, and he is someone I really look up to But his writing just wasn t as engaging.That s not to say that Fields of the Fatherless wasn t good It s only to say that maybe I shouldn t have read it right after the other one This is another book that is a wake up call for Christians The Bible says to care for orphans, widows the le [...]

    6. It was a good, quick read There were many points as in scriptures I have known, yet it was interesting to hear Davis personal story My favorite parts were the Notes from the Field segments I wish that those parts were longer and that there were of them Overall, good read, especially for those who want to help out the least of these in their local community and worldwide The scripture is true, we will always have these 3 among us the widow, the orphan and the stranger Coming from a fatherless an [...]

    7. I very clearly agree with Tom Davis in this book, but the organization, style, and depth of insight leave something to be desired There are much better discussions of Biblical justice and mercy in other sources, such as Richard Foster s Freedom of Simplicity or Tim Keller s Generous Justice Although, comparing Davis to either Foster or Keller is akin to comparing me to Mother Teresa not really fair I think Davis very personal experiences make this book teeter over the edge of emotionalism and my [...]

    8. A quick read, due in part to the fact that there is not a lot of depth in this treatment of an important, oft overlooked subject He draws our attention to important Scriptures, but unfortunately, he is sloppy with his exegesis of them, undermining, rather than supporting his case The title verse is the most obvious example he connects it to the portions of each Israelites field that were left unharvested for the poor, but the context and plain reading would suggest a field owned by an orphan Sin [...]

    9. I love the stories shared in this book by Tom Davis There is a valuable blessing in store for those who care for the fatherless, Davis claims The eight stories from various contributors in chapter eight plainly underscore this truth.

    11. Realistic book on what moves God the orphan the widow Some of the verses that were quoted were excerpts from longer passages Context was missed on some, but overall a good book on practical ways to get involved with ministry how to spot need in our Churches.

    21. Great principles about how all Christians are called to care for orphans, widows and strangers It s inspiring and a fast read, but I didn t feel like this was a really unique take on the subject.
