When Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger first appeared in 1977, 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 neighbours. This thoroughly revised edition of Sider's best-selling book outlines the progress made in the last three decades – and the work still left to do. Every day 30,000 children still die of starvation and preventable diseases, and 1.2 billion people live 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.
