Global Poverty

Full Product Description

  • Looking to understand the theology in today's social climates?
  • This book examines free-markets, global capitalism, aid, charity, and more with wisdom 
  • A meaningful route to grasping the role of Christianity to all mankind

While a number of secular philosophers have written on global poverty, theologians have either steered clear entirely or simply mimicked the political analysis currently on offer. As such, there are a number of Christian authors who have argued either for a free market solution to global poverty or for a radical reform of global capitalism as the best approach, but the theological underpinnings of such conclusions are noticeable by their absence.

Global Poverty offers a new way forward. Justin Thacker offers deeply theological answers to questions around the effect of capitalism on global poverty and whether aid is really a sustainable long term solution for the world's poor.

The book will challenge theologians, church leaders and congregations to consider much more seriously the huge implications of faith and theology on our attitude to the 1.2 billion people in the world who live in extreme poverty.
