Format: Paperback
A fascinating and thought-provoking call to radical social action on behalf of the world's poor. The author is faultlessly evangelical but his closely-reasoned, Biblical arguments expose the hypocrisy of the Christian Right and call readers to serve the poor as the New Testament commands. A compelling, powerful and thoughtful book by the theological adviser to the development charity, Tearfund.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 30 Jan. 2005
Format: Paperback
I read this book coming from a civil rights background and was expecting to find a dogmatic book with dull rhetoric about why you should go to church on a Sunday etc. and was a bit dismayed when the author started talking in terms of evangelism, but decided to carry on reading anyway. These terms aside it sets out well and would be a good read for anyone intrested in Christian/Aid work and the Third World, biblical views on poverty and the issue of poverty in general. The book does go a little silly in places, especially when talking about animist beliefs, but if you keep reading it does generally give a balanced account. I decided to read this book because I was intrested in reading about poverty and related issues and wanted to hear theological addition to the debate. Although the book is a little shortcoming in the failures and mistakes of the church as an institution,(It has a few short passages on some of them.) it does give a good solid biblical background on the teachings against racism, for the rights of women, regarding population growth and protection of the Environment. It also emphasizes being in touch with the communities they are serving. All in all a good solid book on poverty.
