Book Description

August 3, 2005 0898694981 978-0898694987 1st ed, 1st ptg
Addresses the challenge of living in a world broken by intractable issues of poverty and injustice, and offers meditations followed by practical suggestions on how churches and individuals can actually make a difference.

What Can One Person Do? confronts a poverty-stricken world, and with clarity of purpose offers practical steps to create lasting change. Global poverty can be reduced through a series of achievable objectives: the eight Millennium Development goals agreed to by the international community at the Millennium Summit in 2000. World leaders and faith communities have adopted the MDGs, as well as the ideas found within this book--for the authors demonstrate that as shared vision grows and as these goals are accomplished, human communities shall indeed flourish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful and Unique March 20, 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book because it gives a very unique perspective of the Millenium Development Goals from the faith perspective. It also gives hands on and realistic steps that we can take to move even closer to each MDG. My only complaint with this book is that it is at times elitist in that it assumes that its audience is middle and upper-middle class Christians. Though this gives the book a clear audience, it excludes many people from its point of view.

2.0 out of 5 stars What One Person can do March 24, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I brought this book for possible use by our church book group. This book is a reprint of a book written 20 to 25 years ago. It was supposedly updated. I noticed few up dates. This was to be a book that could aid Christians in helping deal with many of the planets woes. It is too dated to be of much use. In my opinion it was not really revised. There was a rush to republish.
