Wealth & Poverty Review Sunshine on Poverty & the Church

My friend Glenn Sunshine is writing a terrific series of articles on poverty and the church over at the Institute for Faith, Work, and Economics blog.
There has been a lot written on the Bible’s treatment of poverty, of course. What sets Glenn’s essays apart is that he’s economically astute, but also careful with the biblical texts. As a result, he corrects a number of popular biblical interpretations by Christians such as Ched Myers and Shane Claiborne. If you have encountered claims from folks such as Myers and Claiborne, take the time to read Sunshine’s essays.
