by Ron Sider
During the twenty years since Ron Sider's bestseller Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger first appeared, we have made dramatic progress. This thoroughly revised edition outlines the good news - and how much we still have to do. Every day 34,000 children still die of starvation and preventable diseases, and 1.3 billion people live in relentless, unrelieved poverty worldwide.
Why is there still so much poverty? Conservatives blame sinful individual choices and laziness. Liberals condemn economic and social structures. Who is right? Who is wrong? Both, according to Sider, who explains poverty's complex causes in this new edition and offers concrete, practical proposals for change.
