You 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. Jesus' Economy is a call to address our own spiritual poverty--as people who can too easily become distant from Christ--and it is a call to address the physical poverty all around us in a smart and sustainable way. Jesus' teachings show that with simple, everyday choices, you can make the world a better place and create enduring change. Here's how to live Jesus' economy--a currency of love. 100% of author's proceeds go to the nonprofit Jesus' Economy, to fuel the movement of creating jobs and churches in the developing world.
