A theological and practical response to global poverty and the Millennium Development Goals, co-written with priest and economist Sabina Alkire, founder of the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI).

Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Good news for the poor' is at the heart of Jesus' gospel. This wonderful book is for everyone who wants to share that good news but does not know where to begin. This book will tell you all you need to know about the Millennium development goals and, whatever your interests or abilities, how you can help make a difference. There is no greater act a human being can do, than help change another person's life for the better.

Archbishop Njongonkulu Ndungane

If you feel discouraged, disheartened and powerless to effect change, if you are looking for a way to put your Christian faith into action, then this is the book for you.
