DESCRIPTIONYou know people around the world are struggling. A homeless man holds a sign that reads, "Anything helps." A poor child lives in a slum swarming with flies. A refugee mother is on the brink of starvation. You ask yourself, "But what can I do about such big problems?"
You?re looking for long-term solutions. John D. Barry shares incredible, and often shocking, stories about working among the impoverished and unchurched in the U.S. and abroad. And since Barry is a Bible scholar, Jesus? Economy is also deeply rooted in the Scriptures. It is a personal, sometimes funny, often heartbreaking account that presents a revolutionary pattern for lasting change.
Jesus' Economy is based on self-sacrifice. His currency is love. It?s called Jesus? Economy because it?s about creating a spiritual and physical economy for those who need it most. Here is a thoroughly biblical and compassionate pattern for addressing issues of poverty and offering the hope of the gospel. Jesus? Economy:
- Shows how you as an individual can best encourage renewal in your community.
- Demonstrates how your church community or any group can alleviate poverty.
- Presents a unified plan for creating jobs, spreading the gospel, and meeting basic needs.
- Focuses on community development and sustainability—lasting change, globally and locally.
