B805 The Bible and Poverty

Examines biblical views on and responses to poverty, including its various causes and dimensions (social, ethical, and theological). Emphasis will be placed on how church leaders can use biblical frameworks not only to diagnose traditional models of benevolence and outreach but also to develop more effective and just poverty solutions. The course includes site visits to several Atlanta-based organizations doing innovative work to address poverty, homelessness, and community development.
