Do you want to make a true difference in the world? Dr. Ron Sider does. He has, since before he first published Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger in 1978. Despite a dramatic reduction in world hunger since then, 34,000 children still die daily of starvation and preventable disease, and 1.3 billion people, worldwide, remain in abject poverty.

So, the professor of theology went back to re-examine the issues by 21st-century standards. Finding that Conservatives blame morally reprehensible individual choices, and Liberals blame constrictive social and economic policy, Dr. Sider finds himself agreeing with both sides. In this new look at an age-old problem, he offers not only a detailed explanation of the causes, but also a comprehensive series of practical solutions, in the hopes that Christians like him will choose to make a difference.

    " Sider does an excellent analysis of social injustice and poverty. "

    " I think this book is right on. However, my adult discussion group I read it with struggled with it. They questioned the very backbone of the book biblical analysis, especially the concept of the Jubilee. The book starts with Biblical analysis from an evangelical conservative perspective. Moves to an economic review of the world which the author reminds us is much less trustworthy than his biblical analysis and then to prescriptions for Christians. Demanding without being overbearing the 5th edition of the book is a worthy read if you are concerned about Jesus beatitude Blessed are the poor and his alternate woe to the rich! "

    " Whether or not you fully agree with Sider's conclusions, this is material that cannot be ignored. Sider does an excellent job of attempting to diagnose the problem of poverty and offer solutions. Very close to a must-read for any Christian. "
