WEALTH, WAGES, AND THE WEALTHY
New Testament Insights for Preachers and Teachers
Author: Raymond F. Collins
The Bible has more to say about the use of wealth than it does about other moral issues of our day, yet this teaching seldom enters into the conscience of believers.
The author redresses this issue and provides the reader with a careful examination not only of what Jesus said about wealth but also of what each of the New Testament authors wrote about the topic.

ALWAYS WITH US
What Jesus Really Said about the Poor
Author: Liz Theoharis
Liz Theoharis examines both the biblical text and the lived reality of the poor to show how that passage is taken out of context, distorted, and politicized to justify theories about the inevitability of inequality.
She reinterprets "the poor you will always have with you" to show that it is actually one of the strongest biblical mandates to end poverty.
She documents stories of poor people themselves organizing to improve their lot and illuminates the implications for the church. Poverty is not inevitable, Theoharis argues. It is a systemic sin, and all Christians have a responsibility to partner with the poor to end poverty once and for all.
