 About the Book

We should be going upstream to find out who’s pushing them in.’Archbishop Desmond Tutu‘When I give to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a communist.’Dom Helder Camara, Archbishop of Olinda and Recife, Brazil‘All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.’Edmund BurkeAnother Way to Love explores the role of Christian social reform and how we can act to stop not just the symptoms, but also the causes of global poverty and injustice. Advocacy and social reform are important expressions of the Christian call to love our neighbour. At different points in history, Christians have been involved in social movements that have changed the face of the world. This book explores the theology behind social reform and looks at some major issues affecting the poor today – climate change, overseas aid, fair trade and child slavery – and ways we can act to make a difference.‘The real question is not whether religious faith should influence a society and its politics, but how? Another Way to Love helps to answer this question. It provides the biblical foundation for social engagement, as well as practical examples grounded in World Vision’s long experience opposing poverty and injustice around the world. This is a valuable book that brings together intelligent Christian thought and action.’Jim Wallis - author, speaker and founder of Sojourners USA
