Through this six-session small group Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately), Jim Wallis and Sojourners teaches you to connect biblical faith with contemporary responses to poverty, both in your neighborhood and around the world.

According to Wallis, "When the wealthy are dying from diseases of overabundance and the poor are dying from inadequate health care, poor diets, and stress-related illnesses, there is spiritual disease in society."

Justice for the Poor recaptures the biblical vision that links poverty with justice. Jesus' life and teaching shows a deep compassion toward the poor and marginalized. His messages often highlight the injustices shown to the poor and the prejudices the well-off have against them. How can we learn from the poor? What is our responsibility to care for the poor and to advocate for justice on their behalf?

Jim Wallis and Sojourners will engage your small group to take action.

Sessions include:

  1. Burger King Mom: Being Poor in America
  2. Is There Something Wrong With the Prosperity Gospel?
  3. At the Corner of Church and State: What's the Proper Role of Each in Caring for the Poor?
  4. The Gospel According to New Orleans
  5. Outside the Gate: The Poor and the Global Economy
  6. Beyond "Serial Charity" to a Just Society "
