*** Our Starred New Book of the Week:
( Orbis Books )
“Almost everyone I know and every social group I belong to could benefit from a careful reading of this challenging little volume. In an age (that means every age, perhaps especially our age) when genuine concern for the poor so naturally mutates into harsh judgment or simple neglect; when even “Christian” political leaders avert their eyes or simply ignore the complicated “other”; when many churches seem to see as their mission the creation of insular communities, schools, institutions and facilities designed to keep the poor out of sight and out of mind; this timely book needs to be read and discussed. If repentance for the systemic evils of our self-serving “empty way of life inherited from our forefathers” is even possible, it might begin with this modest but hard-hitting book.”
—Jonathan Bonk, Mission Research Professor, Boston School of Theology, Author of Missions and Money.
