Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

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 twenty-first 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.

    This review was written for Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger.
    Even though I believe some of Sider's statistics are off-base, his theology is sound. This book had a profound impact regarding my own perception of poverty. The truth is, even those of us in the U.S.in the least enviable positions are wealthy beyond belief in comparison to at least 1/3 of the rest of the world. Sider's style is terse and succinct, and he pulls no punches. Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger definitely provides "food" for the mind to digest.

    This review was written for Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger.
    Excellently written and researched. I find Sider's perspective very bold, non-compromising, and his bible quotations and explanations convicting. There are few books that I have enjoyed and agreed with as much as this one.
