For the Least of These: A Biblical Answer to Poverty

While much progress has been made toward poverty alleviation, many well-intentioned efforts have led Christians to actions that are not only ineffective, but leave the most vulnerable in a worse situation than before. Economist Dr. Anne Bradley and theologian Dr. Art Lindsley, both of the Institute for Faith, Work & Economics, discussed the question, "is there a better way?" Bradley and Lindsley are the editors of the recently released book, For the Least of These: A Biblical Answer to Poverty, in which they are joined by 13 other economists, theologians, and practitioners to present the case for why markets and trade are the world's best hope for alleviating poverty.
