The Twenty-Piece Shuffle: Why the Poor and Rich Need Each Other

By Greg Paul

Greg Paul believes that the rich, the impoverished, and everyone in between can learn much from each other if they’re willing to walk together. Join Greg as he takes a look at a remarkable paradox, where the poor can miss their blessedness while the wealthy overlook their own desperate needs, and reveals why God has always called the wealthy and powerful to care for people who are poor or excluded.
