  • Awaiting a Savior: The Gospel, the New Creation and the End of Poverty By Aaron Armstrong What causes poverty What am I supposed to do about it These questions are driving a new generation of Christians to take action on behalf of the poor through social and political action, global partnerships, and financial generosity, as they desire to become the generation that ends poverty forever Yet in pursuit of this goal, they risk losing sight of a fundamental realWhat causes poverty What am I supposed to do about it These questions are driving a new generation of Christians to take action on behalf of the poor through social and political action, global partnerships, and financial generosity, as they desire to become the generation that ends poverty forever Yet in pursuit of this goal, they risk losing sight of a fundamental reality the root cause of poverty isn t found in material or external circumstances The root cause of poverty is sin and sin is not a problem we can solve.But Jesus can.In Awaiting a Savior, Aaron Armstrong reminds readers that even as we are responsible for pursuing biblical solutions to poverty, our hope for truly resolving it comes not from the good we do, but from the return of Christ, who will once and for all put an end to sin, suffering and death as he brings about the new creation.

    In the October 2011 release from Cruciform Press Aaron Armstrong delivers a quick and concise biblical theology of poverty A quote taken from the back cover summarizes the main message of the book Christians are called to serve the poor generously, joyfully, by grace, to the Glory of God But elimination poverty is a misguided and dangerous goal Poverty is rooted in the fall of man and there is only one savoir.The books starts by unpacking for us the root cause of poverty We are not dealing with [...]

    Because poverty is a spiritual issue, you see in the pages the heart of God In today s world, we are big on social justice and ending the injustice of poverty, slavery, clean water, etc however, just as Jesus as said, you will always have the poor with you, maybe that was the first clue of how we as God s people we need to look at these social injustices Aaron does that quite well The focus being on our problem, sin, and the solution Jesus and what the cross signifies A great reminder that Aaron [...]

    A helpful, easy to read, introductory primer on the spiritual nature of poverty and the need for a Savior to alleviate it This book would pair very well with When Helping Hurts How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor and Yourself by providing a biblical theological framework within which to better understand poverty and how to best alleviate it.

    This short book provides a biblical, helpful perspective on poverty Instead of making you fee like you can t do anything to help, or trying to persuade you that you can solve global poverty by yourself, this book points you to seeing Jesus return as the ultimate solution while providing practical ways to help in the time we have now Great read

    An excellent, clearly laid out, gospel centered theology of social justice A short, but worthy read.

    If you recall I reviewed When Helping Hurts this last December and was impressed with the practicality provided by it Awaiting a Savior in contrast would be a theological foundation for dealing with poverty which is fundamentally a spiritual issue p 20 Aaron connects poverty with the gospel story He looks at the fall p 18 the fall has made poverty the default setting emphasis original p 22 , redemption p 45 , and consummation pp 11, 97 as they relate to poverty Says Aaron, The root cause of pove [...]

    Excelente livro Apresenta uma posi o bastante equilibrada a respeito da pobreza De um lado, o autor bate nas reivindica es daqueles que apregoam a redistribui o de renda como a solu o para o pobreza Do outro, ele reprova a falta de compaix o dos adeptos do outro espectro pol tico que, muitas vezes, nada fazem al m de dizer que a pobreza culpa dos pobres.De acordo com o autor, a raiz e a fonte da pobreza o pecado, a pobreza por tr s da pobreza Assim, nenhuma a o pol tica solucionar o problema da [...]

    I wasn t all to sure I would like this book at first, as it seemed a negative take on poverty and the potential alleviation given Jesus words that we will always have the poor with us That said, Armstrong does an excellent job of explaining why that will remain true, what it says about our hearts, what can realistically be done, and the hope for the future His key phrase, for Christians, I think is this Covenant faithfulness, requires ethical faithfulness.

    Mark A Powell
    Poverty is the result of sin, argues Armstrong Thus, the only way to truly end poverty is to truly end sin, which Christ will do at the end of the age In the interim, he offers some practical insight into what the Christian response to poverty should be If you haven t read some of the recent, thorough works on poverty, this is a great primer to the issue Otherwise, it will likely retread familiar ground.

    Adam Joseph
    Timely TheologicalAaron Armstrong does a wonderful job describing succinctly how our theology must inform our action with regard to poverty He lays a biblical foundation and quickly builds a practical framework upon it The refrain heard throughout the book is covenant faithfulness means ethical faithfulness A very timely message for today s views on poverty.

    Since I wrote the book, I m not allowed to review it I m a bit bias But if you re reading the book, I hope you find it helpful and be sure to check out some of the endorsements and reviews at CruciformPress.

    The basis of the book is that covenant faithfulness leads to ethical faithfulness.
