God cares passionately about poverty and justice. So much so, that poverty is mentioned more than 2,000 times in the Bible. The Poverty and Justice Bible highlights a full sweep of biblical justice and features a 56-page guide for personal and group study. Everywhere you go in this book, God’s love for the poor and desire for justice leap out at you.

The real danger in our world may not be people failing to read the Bible — it may be what happens when people actually do read it — especially the over 2,000 verses on God’s heart for the poor and oppressed. Be warned...the following pages change everything.

—Rob Bell, Mars Hill Bible Church

The Poverty and Justice Bible reminds you to stop darting the eyes of the beggar and, instead, start looking into them. It reminds you to stop walking away from the oppressed and, instead, start walking towards them. It reminds you to stop ignoring the pain you watch on the news, read in the magazines and hear on the radio and, instead, start praying, responding and helping. It reminds you to stop reading the Bible as a noun and, instead, start reading the Bible as a verb.

—Jenna Lucado Author of “Redefining Beauty”

At first I felt really weird about offering an endorsement for the Bible, as if God needs a blurb from me to boost sales. But the minute I opened it I realized that the very intention of the publishers is to rescue the Bible back from the prosperity preachers, flashy televangelists, and jingoistic pastors that have hijacked it.

Nearly every page you turn you get the unmistakable sense that this book is not just about me, but about a God that so loves the world. Let it turn your world upside down so that the last things become first and the first become last.

—Shane Claiborn, Activist, Author of “Irresistible Revolution”

The grace and mercy of God has never been deserved. Jesus knew that none would understand this better than the poor. His banquet table was full of the most unlikely guests, and so are the pages of this book.

—Brandon Heath, Dove award-winning male vocalist of the year
