Publisher's Description

Reconsidering our view of economic status.


Overview

While we often admire those who endure poverty, few of us are willing to volunteer for a serious drop in economic status. For the most part, our aspirations lie in the other direction. But why? This study will ask if we have become unwitting victims of the deceptive promises of more. What can we learn from our brothers and sisters below the line and from Jesus, who, though he was rich, became poor for our sake?
