Product Description

The editor of World magazine reveals that the problem with modern welfare is not its cost but its stinginess! Advocating for challenging, personal, and spiritual aid rather than entitlement and bureaucracy, he shows a new generation of Americans how to give assistance that actually helps---and confront an establishment that still impoverishes the poor. 302 pages, softcover from Crossway.
