Every fifteen minutes a jumbo jet filled with children crashes, leaving no survivors. The jet is actually hunger, but the haunting image is real--33,000 children dead each day.

The jet is actually hunger, but the haunting image is real--33,000 children dead each day. What is even more haunting is that the deaths are unnecessary because the world has long had the technology and experience to end hunger. Its persistence is a challenge to the integrity of everyone who claims the name Christian. This primer on the causes and cures of hunger is written by Bread for the World's founding president Arthur Simon and current president David Beckmann. Never oversimplifying, the book shows how issues such as population, resources, economics, and human rights are interwoven in their impact on hunger. The book gives compelling biblical motivation for personal action and public policy--and explains practical strategies individuals can take to help effect worldwide change. Using a question-and-answer format for clear reading, stories and examples for personalization, and graphics and sidebars for eye-appeal, this is an important book for all Christians. It's of special interest to Bread for the World members, social justice workers, parish social-action committees, grassroots activists, historians, political scientists, and anyone concerned with the poor....

    Good source for a realistic picture of the problem of world hunger, and the possibilities for actually ending it. Although the book is a bit dated now, the fundamental problems have not changed much. I'm not convinced that government should be as involved in the problem as the authors argue, but it is a sad reality that churches do not do as much as they should. The Church needs to wake up, and not expect government to solve the problem.

    Reading this in 2016 isn't exactly fair, because so much of the statistics are out of date. Check out some of Bread for the World's other books for more up to date information.
