About This Event
Although the biblical command to help “the least of these” is indisputable, the practical means for doing so are less clear. Over the past century, as the social ties that bind individuals together have loosened and dissolved, the safety net has changed hands from local communities to an ever-increasing administrative state. But this paradigm, supported by many well-intentioned Christians, has resulted not in greater access to prosperity, but in a multigenerational cycle of poverty and dependency.

Please join us for a book launch event and panel discussion on poverty, theology, and economics with contributors to a compelling new volume from the Institute for Faith, Work, and Economics, “For the Least of These.” Attendees will receive a complimentary copy.
