Fast Living

The secondary title to this book by Scott Todd is “How the Church will end extreme poverty.”

Basically the first half of the book does two things: it tells what causes extreme poverty and it gives us a pep talk.  I’m really glad for the pep talk because ending extreme poverty sounds impossible.  But he does a great job showing our progress in eliminating poverty and explaining our roles for the final leg of the journey.  I really think it’s worth the read, but pray before you read it.  It has the potential to end up like one of those “starving children” ads on TV that is just easier to turn off than face the reality.  So pray that God will give you the will and courage to read it with an open mind.
