Hunger for justice. The politics of food and faith

Hunger for justice. The politics of food and faith

Hunger for justice The politics of food and faith: 230

A thorough analysis is presented of the systematic causes of the world hunger crisis. A biblical analogy is presented, comparing today with Israel at the time of the prophets, in order to identify the causes of poverty and human suffering. It is shown that the food issue is not only highly political, but that it cannot be separated from such matters as military spending, the rise of agri-business corporations, and the desire of the 'have' nations to have even more.
