recommended reading from Pathways from Poverty

The first book on our list is the newest, and one that we highly recommend that everyone should be reading - not just the social activists! (UK focus)

> A Church for the Poor - published Summer 2017 by our good friends at Jubilee+ Martin Charlesworth and Natalie Williams.           

The other book well worth everyone reading is Mike Betts' book, which includes a chapter entitled A Church for a Broken World:

> Relational Mission - A Way of LIfe - Mike Betts

 

Other great reads in relation to Social Justice are:

> Toxic Charity - Rubert Lupton                                      

> Charity Detox - Robert Lupton

> Generous Justice - Tim Keller

> Embracing the Poor - David Adams (Editor)

> The church that never sleeps - Matthew Burnett   

> The cause within you - Matthew Burnett

 

On the subject of Leading Volunteers

> Volunteer Revolution - Bill Hybels


Recommendations from Mike - Let's not forget that we stand on the shoulders of giants of faith and social reformers who have gone before us: 

> William Booth - In Darkest England, and the Way Out - Charting the growth and philosophy of the early Salvation Army

> Biographies of William Wilberforce - the tireless anti slavery campaigner and Parliamentarian.

> The history of the Clapham Sect will give you a wider look at the anti slavery movement that Wilberforce was part of.

> Social reformers who were motivated by their faith and couldn't walk by on the other side include: George Muller and Shaftesbury
