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.

Off the bus!5 Stars Out Of 5August 5, 2007Off the bus!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.
Joshua5 Stars Out Of 5July 4, 2007JoshuaExcellently 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.
