Product description

Review

Sr. Simone Campbell, SSS
-- NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice
"Be ready to be stirred up by this scriptural exploration of the meaning of poverty. It challenged me with the moral demand to end poverty now."

Laura Sumner Truax
-- LaSalle Street Church, Chicago
"Provocative. Powerful. Persuasive. Liz Theoharis's fresh reading of a familiar biblical text opens up new ground for preaching, teaching, and activism. This is a book of lived theology and radical compassion."

Karenna Gore
-- Center for Earth Ethics, Union Theological Seminary
"Theoharis brings the Bible to life in this exciting study of one of its most famous passages. With a combination of rigorous theological scholarship and personal stories from her life as an organizer, she shows us that the front line in the fight against poverty is not in poor neighborhoods but rather within the assumptions of a society that fosters systemic injustice."

William J. Barber II (from the foreword)
-- President, North Carolina NAACP
"The contemporary church has become so accommodative to capitalism that its theology is often viewed as a justification of economic injustice. Dr. Theoharis's work stands as a challenge to such theology and asserts that poverty is an affront to God. The church must be a prophetic witness and actor in the world."

About the Author

Liz Theoharis is founder and codirector of the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights, and Social Justice and coordinator of the Poverty Initiative at Union Theological Seminary. An ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA), Theoharis has spent the last two decades organising among the poor in the United States and worldwide.
