Fast Living: How the Church Will End Extreme Povertyby Scott Todd
In this accessible and straightforward book, Dr. Scott C. Todd outlines a battle plan and vision for the war on extreme poverty by pointing out the progress made in the last few decades. Most compellingly, he notes that In 1981, 52% of the world’s population lived in extreme poverty (living on less than $1 a day). As of 2005 that number is 26%. “We have cut the percentage of people living in extreme poverty in half. And we did it in one generation!” the author asserts. Based on the themes of Isaiah 58, Fast Living presents a theological foundation, hard statistics, and human stories that can motivate a generation of Christians to end extreme global poverty. The book calls the church to lead the war on poverty by fasting and praying, and joining with organizations that are already doing mission and humanitarian work around the world. Dr. Todd encourages the Christian Church to take its rightful position in the battle against poverty. 100% of the proceeds from Fast Living will benefit children in need.
