Give Us This Dayby Craig L. Nessan
Concern for the hungry belongs to the heart of the Scripture's testimony about God. The Bible's justice tradition serves as a canon within the canon that the Christian church dare not ignore. The Lord's Prayer demonstrates how justice for the hungry is also deeply rooted in the teaching of Jesus. The author summons the Christian church to listen to the cries of the hungry and commit itself to ending hunger as a matter of status confessionis. Ending hunger is a real possibility for our time. The role of the church in advocating this possibility is crucial.
