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.

Author Bio

Ronald J. Sider, PhD, is Distinguished Professor of Theology at Eastern Seminary. He serves as president of Evangelicals for Social Action, and has published more than twenty books.

    Every day 34,000 children still die of starvation and preventable diseases, and 1.3 billion people live in relentless, unrelieved poverty worldwide. Why? Poverty's complex causes are explained, and concrete, practical proposals for change are offered. I read Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger a number of years ago when I first met my wife. She is a big fan of the book. Although many conservative evangelicals who probably understand the world of economics much better than me tend to dislike Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger, the book has given me a better understanding of the great inequalities of world power and has caused me to rethink of how I can live a simpler and more responsible lifestyle. I gave Sider's book a positive review; however, I wouldn't be surprised if I would also give a positive review for David Chilton's Productive Christians in an Age of Guilt-Manipulation: A Biblical Response to Ronald J. Sider. I hope to read it one day. Chilton's book like Sider's book certainly has its critics, but I could see myself agreeing with much of what Chilton says in his book. I read the 20th-anniversary version of Sider's Rich Christians In An Age of Hunger, and it advocated several of the reforms that Chilton had recommended. Helping those who suffer from poverty is a challenging issue, and I think we need to remember that these men just want to help and give God the glory.
