PresentationHow can a local church make a difference? How can we usefully reflect the grace of Christ despite the inequalities around us?
The authors of this book introduce us to the issue of world poverty from a biblical, theological and strategic perspective. They cause us to rethink how we apply the gospel to a broken world.
By examining Bible principles related to everyday situations, this book shows us how to offer practical help and gracious answers to those in need. It leads to a true understanding of poverty, while presenting us with a plan to reduce it.
This book is proving to be a practical tool for anyone who wants to adequately serve those who suffer from poverty.
“This book is a work of great importance for churches, Christian leaders and for every believer in the Francophonie. His message is absolutely essential. As Christians together seek to better serve those who suffer from poverty through actions and approaches that go far beyond paternalism, this book helps them make a difference and leave an important mark on the kingdom of God in this world […] which needs help and hope. " - Claude Houde, pastor of the Nouvelle Vie Church in Longueuil (Quebec); President of the Christian Association for the Francophonie (ACF) and of the Board of Directors of the Institute of Theology for the Francophonie (ITF).
