WestBow Press, the supported self-publishing services provider of Thomas Nelson and Zondervan, is pleased to announce that Zondervan has acquired the rights to “For the Least of These: A Biblical Answer to Poverty,” edited by Anne Bradley and Art Lindsley. In this compilation of expert perspectives, Bradley and Lindsley, leaders from The Institute of Faith, Work and Economics (TIFWE), offer Christian best practices for helping the impoverished.

“By their very nature, Christians are generous and compassionate toward the poor,” Bradley observed. “Unfortunately, oftentimes the well-intentioned efforts many Christians make to help the less fortunate are not only ineffective but often leave the most vulnerable in a worse situation. ‘For the Least of These' is intended to help Christians gain a better understanding of how we can best care for the poor and foster for them sustainable economic success.”

Fifteen leading Christian economists, theologians, historians and practitioners offer support to the belief that markets and trade are the world’s best hope for alleviating poverty. Featured experts include Peter Greer, Walter Kaiser and Marvin Olasky, among others.

“Many Christians today are not satisfied with the typical answers to poverty,” said Ryan Pazdur, associate publisher and executive editor at Zondervan. “We felt this title had great potential for academic and church markets, as well as thoughtful readers who are looking for a fresh, biblical approach to poverty alleviation.”

The title, self-published on behalf of TIFWE, was released through WestBow Press in February 2014.

Zondervan plans to release “For the Least of These” in paperback and popular digital formats on April 21, 2015.
