9780801066139: Just Generosity: A New Vision for Overcoming Poverty in America

Just Generosity calls Christians to examine their priorities and their pocketbooks in the face of a scandalous tendency to overlook those among us who suffer while we live in practical opulence. This holistic approach to helping the poor goes far beyond donating clothes or money, envisioning a world in which faith based groups work with businesses, the media, and the government to help end poverty in the world's richest nation. This updated edition includes current statistics, policy recommendations, and discussions covering everything from welfare reform, changes to Medicade, and the Social Security debate."Sider's most important book since Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger."Jim Wallis, author, God's Politics "Sider knows how to lift up people in need. . . . [An] important and challenging book."John Ashcroft, former Attorney General of the United States

From the Back Cover:

"New, important, and provocative."--Charles W. Colson and John J. DiIulio Jr., from the foreword

In this new edition of Just Generosity, Ron Sider, author of the bestselling Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger, calls believers to care as much about the poor as Jesus did. Sider's first edition was cited as a Christianity Today Book Award winner and as one of the Top Ten Books in Religion by Booklist. Here he updates his comprehensive yet accessible agenda of ways to reduce poverty in the United States. Using poignant stories to engage the heart and well-documented facts to convince the mind, Sider presents a nonpartisan corrective to poverty in the United States. These concrete suggestions will be an invaluable help to those who wish to understand and join political debates over poverty.

"Sider's most important book since Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger. I hope every Christian will read this book."--Jim Wallis, editor-in-chief, Sojourners; author, God's Politics

"Drawing creatively from both 'conservatives' and 'liberals,' Sider issues a powerful biblical call to end the scandal of widespread poverty in the richest nation on the earth."--David Beckmann, president, Bread for the World

"Readers will find his discussion insightful and his proposals for change resonant."--Library Journal

"Ron Sider knows how to lift up people in need, transform their lives, and liberate them from material and spiritual poverty. The answers are in this important and challenging book."--John Ashcroft, former attorney general of the United States

"[An] honest assessment of . . . racism and the structural inequities which lock African Americans, Latino Americans, and minorities out of the 'system.'"--Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., senior pastor, Trinity United Church of Christ, Chicago

"Every politician, Republican or Democrat, now espousing faith-based solutions to our social problems; every social justice activist, liberal or conservative, seeking to apply religious truths to our contemporary moral challenges, should start by delving into Just Generosity."--Rabbi David Saperstein, director and counsel, Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism
