Grace at the Table: Ending Hunger in God's World
Every fifteen minutes a jumbo jet filled with children crashes, leaving no survivors. The jet is actually hunger, but the haunting image is real--33,000 children dead each day. What is even more haunting is that the deaths are unnecessary because the world has long had the technology and experience to end hunger. Its persistence is a challenge to the integrity of everyone who claims the name Christian.
This primer on the causes and cures of hunger is written by Bread for the World's founding president Arthur Simon and current president David Beckmann. Never oversimplifying, the book shows how issues such as population, resources, economics, and human rights are interwoven in their impact on hunger. The book gives compelling biblical motivation for personal action and public policy--and explains practical strategies individuals can take to help effect worldwide change.
Using a question-and-answer format for clear reading, stories and examples for personalization, and graphics and sidebars for eye-appeal, this is an important book for all Christians. It's of special interest to Bread for the World members, social justice workers, parish social-action committees, grassroots activists, historians, political scientists, and anyone concerned with the poor.
