Item description for Give Us This Day: A Lutheran Proposal for Ending World Hunger (Lutheran Voices) by Craig L. Nessan & David Beckmann...
Overview Concern for the hungry belongs to the heart of the Scripture's testimony about God. The Bible's justice tradition serves as a canon within the canon that the Christian church dare not ignore. The Lord's Prayer demonstrates how justice for the hungry is also deeply rooted in the teaching of Jesus. The author summons the Christian church to listen to the cries of the hungry and commit itself to ending hunger as a matter of status confessionis. Ending hunger is a real possibility for our time. The role of the church in advocating this possibility is crucial. All royalties from this book will be donated to Bread for the World and the ELCA World Hunger Program.

Hitting the Nail on the Head Jan 12, 2008
Nessan does a great job of discussing the issue of world hunger and how Christians have become complacent in fighting it. We talk about hunger frequently in church but do very little in the means of fighting it. He gives encouragement and hope that something can and will be done about it if we empower ourselves.
