In 2010, Ed Walker founded Hope into Action, a charity with a vision – of the church at the forefront of the fight against homelessness.

A House Built on Love tells the remarkable story of Hope into Action's rapidly-growing mission and how it has worked in partnership with churches to supply homes, support, friendship and love for the homeless and marginalized, earning the Guardian’s Public Service Award in 2017 and an award from the Centre for Social Justice.

This is a powerful, eye-opening Christian autobiography that provides insight into the difficult reality of homelessness in the UK. With raw honesty Ed relates the struggle as he and his wife Rachel stepped out in faith, developed a new theology of sharing and saw both tragic and wonderful outcomes, and shows how we can meet and grow in Christ as we interact with those in the shadows and those hidden in darkness.

Visionary, inspiring and touching, A House Built on Love is a book for anyone who wants to know more about Hope into Action and their mission of housing the homeless. Their story will leave you with a stronger understanding of one of the most important social issues of today, and show how reaching out with love and compassion can have a life-changing impact.
