A Call to Act

Today's Price £12.33

Product Description

A practical tool for individual, churches, and small groups, and incorporating discussion questions and accompanying videos, A Call to Act demonstrates that, in order to engage with poverty and need, we must re-evaluate our own attitudes and adopt a poverty-busting lifestyle.

There are undoubted challenges to embracing a life of simplicity but these are broken down into ideas for action.

Whether getting up close to poverty, rejecting comfort in favour of compassion, or living with a more poverty-focused lifestyle, churches and individuals will be empowered to live out Jesus' principles of justice, mercy, and the care of creation within their own communities and the wider world.



1. The Abrupt Call to Act of the Coronavirus Pandemic

2. Our Context and Our Calling

3. A Life of Simplicity

4. Poverty-Busting Inclusivity

5. Changing Your Community

6. Buying for Justice—the Creative Power of Ethical Consumerism

7. Care for Creation—and Its Implications for Social Justice
