Micah's Challenge: The Church's Responsibility to the Global Poor [9781842276068]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Micah Challenge is a global Christian campaign. Our aims are to deepen our engagement with impoverished and marginalised communities; and to challenge international leaders, and leaders of rich and poor countries, to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, and so halve absolute global poverty by 2015! He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:8). This is Micah's challenge to Israel in his day and to the Church in our day. God called them and us to act with justice, mercy and humility in our dealings with the poor. This book pulls together prophetic voices from Jim Wallis to Tony Campolo and from Ronald Sider to Rene Padilla and Joel Edwards to explore the theological, ethical and practical dimensions of Micah's challenge. The heart of the book is an exploration of 'acting justly', 'walking humbly', and 'loving mercy'. That call is set within a broader biblical and theological framework and followed by reflections on how we might live it out today. Micah's Challenge offers a passionate, biblical, and challenging call to think afresh and to act redemptively as individuals and as Christian communities. Any Christian searching for a deeper theological understanding of the contribution they as a person of faith can make to ending extreme poverty in this world should read this book. - www.christiantoday.com
