The hopeful message of Grace at the Table is that widespread hunger can be ended. Two authors who have battled hunger around the world here show us God's heart and describe how we can help those in need.

"Widespread hunger is no longer necessary. Wars and tyrants will always cause
some to go without, but we already have the ideas, experience, financing and
technology to put nearly all hunger behind us - if we have the will to do it.
Twenty-five years after the launching of Bread for the World, the nation's
pre-eminent citizens' lobby on hunger, its president (David Beckmann) along
with its founder (Arthur Simon), tell us what they've learned in
question-and-answer format and with stories that give the statistics human
faces.
Every time we give thanks, every time we say grace at a meal, we are reminded
that our daily bread is a gift from God - and is a gift to share. Here is a
book that shows us God's heart and how we can help to end hunger in God's
world." --back cover

Every fifteen minutes a jumbo jet filled with children crashes, leaving no survivors. The jet is actually hunger, but the haunting image is real--33,000 children dead each day. What is even more haunting is that the deaths are unnecessary because the world has long had the technology and experience to end hunger. Its persistence is a challenge to the integrity of everyone who claims the name Christian.

This primer on the causes and cures of hunger is written by Bread for the World's founding president Arthur Simon and current president David Beckmann. Never oversimplifying, the book shows how issues such as population, resources, economics, and human rights are interwoven in their impact on hunger. The book gives compelling biblical motivation for personal action and public policy--and explains practical strategies individuals can take to help effect worldwide change.

Using a question-and-answer format for clear reading, stories and examples for personalization, and graphics and sidebars for eye-appeal, this is an important book for all Christians. It's of special interest to Bread for the World members, social justice workers, parish social-action committees, grassroots activists, historians, political scientists, and anyone concerned with the poor.
