Excerpt


When Ron Sider's Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger first appeared twenty-eight years ago, it shook readers to the core. Informed about the issues of world hunger and poverty, they could no longer ignore the plight of their global neighbors. This thoroughly revised edition of Sider's best-selling book outlines the progress that has been made in the last three decades, and the work that is still left to do. Every day 30,000 children still die of starvation and preventable diseases, and 1.2 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.

Reclaiming the Body: Christians and the Faithful Use of Modern MedicineReclaiming the Body: Christians and the Faithful Use of Modern Medicine

Excerpt


In our age of advanced medical technology that emphasizes health and well being, the human body has become the near-exclusive province of the professional health care industry. The solutions it proposes and the judgments it pronounces are taken as gospel. As Christians however, we are called to view all of life, including medicine, through the lens of faith. In Reclaiming the Body, a physician and a theologian take a critical look at some common assumptions and explore what theology has to say about medicine, our bodies, and our health. This is not a Christian treatise on medical ethics nor a book with a medicine-bashing agenda. Rather, Reclaiming the Body invites the reader to a theological and ecclesiological reflection on both the human body and the Christian body in an effort to reframe the relationship between Christian faith and medicine. Along the way, the authors discuss contemporary issues such as what it means to fully care for the sick, children and reproductive technologies, medicine and the poor, and our obsession with and pursuit of physical perfection. Featured in softcover with 176 pages from Brazos Press.
