E 202 Good News for the Poor (2021)


Poverty and the treatment of the poor are ever-present themes  throughout Scripture, theology and Christian practice. So how can the gospel hold relevance to the long-term poor?

This in-depth discussion explores the lived experience of the poor in India, and argues that the good news of God’s kingdom can break the chains of the past, give hope for the future, and build an international and cross-cultural community of care.
