I am reviewing a copy of The End of Hunger through Intervarsity Press and Netgalley:
Since 1990, our generation and our nation has led the world in halving the number of people who live in extreme poverty around the world. We did this in spite of the population growth during this period of time. Cutting extreme poverty in half has alai cut extreme hunger in half. This is not only historic it is also epic.
In this book we learn that The End of Hunger will come when everyone on the planet has an adequate income as well as access to healthful foods and living in a safe environment that allows for healthful food production.
This book points out too that the Bible underlines God’s special concern for the poor in a minimum of four ways: God acts in
to lift up the poor and oppressed. God identifies with the poor. God casts down rich people who oppress or neglect the poor. And people with resources who fail to share God’s concern for the poor are not really God’s people at all.
We are commanded by Jesus to feed all of God’s Children but is that possible, twenty five years ago 23.3 percent is the world’s population lived in hunger but today the number has dropped to 12.9 percent giving rise to the renewed hope that what once seemed unthinkable is now within reach. The challenges are great, but the fight to eliminate malnutrition and hunger is one we can wi
I found The End of Hunger to be an eye opening and well researched book and is therefore worthy of five out of five stars.
