Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger

For the Olive Tree Bible App

Title: Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Author: Ronald J. Sider and Ron Sider


In an age obsessed with wealth, Christians seem to have forgotten that scripture encourages believers to give to the poor. Why do 1.3 billion people live in abject poverty? And what should Christians do about it?

Despite a dramatic reduction in world hunger, 34,000 children still die daily of starvation and preventable disease, and 1.3 billion people around the world remain in abject poverty.

Dr. Ron Sider, a professor of theology, examines the issues of poverty and hunger in modern society. While the Bible is full of instructions to care for the poor and warns against being seduced by riches, it’s been statistically proven that the richer countries become, the less they give. Finding that conservatives blame what they consider to be morally reprehensible individual choices, and liberals blame what they believe to be constrictive social and economic policy, Dr. Sider finds himself agreeing with both sides.

First published in 1978, Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger has had an enormous impact on how believers (and churches) view questions of poverty and hunger. Dr. Sider’s insights provide a compelling look at what it truly means to follow Christ. This edition of Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger is:

  • Newly revised, expanded and updated
  • Listed as one of the 100 most influential books in religion in the 20th century
  • A resource for Christians seeking to overcome poverty and change the economic structures of our world

In this fresh look at an age-old problem, Dr. Sider offers a detailed explanation of the causes of poverty and hunger, as well as a comprehensive series of practical solutions for Christians who want to seriously pursue their faith and become better followers of Jesus.
