For the Least of These: A Biblical Answer to Poverty

Anne Bradley and Art Lindsley, editors

There is no doubt that Christians have been called by God to help the poor, and many are eager to answer the call.

However, Christians have different, and often-conflicting, opinions about the most effective and biblical way to help. While much progress has been made toward poverty alleviation, other well-intentioned efforts have led Christians to support policies that are not only ineffective but leave the most vulnerable in an even worse situation.

Is there a better answer? Combining biblical exegesis with proven economic principles and historical examples, For the Least of These: A Biblical Answer to Poverty helps Christians understand:

  • The root cause of poverty.
  • The most effective and biblical solutions to poverty.
  • The difference between long-term and short-term poverty relief.
  • The best way to foster sustainable economic development and human flourishing.

With contributions from fifteen leading Christian economists, theologians, historians, and practitioners, For the Least of These presents the case for why markets and trade are the world’s best hope for alleviating poverty.
