From the Church Library:
Food Fight: Struggling for Justice in a Hungry World by Chris Herlinger and Paul Jeffrey
“Hunger is ubiquitous. It afflicts those in noisy, crowded cities and quiet, forgotten villages. It hides in plain sight. It does its work quietly and insidiously; it gnaws and burrows into the lives of the poor in New Mexico and into the lives of the poor in Indonesia. It harms the lives of those who toil at kilns in rural Pakistan and of those who work in the shadow of Wall Street “ from preface
The authors’ previous books are Where Mercy Fails: Darfur’s Struggle to Surviveand Rubble Nation: Haiti’s Pain, Haiti’s Promise in which Chris Herlinger and Rev Paul Jeffrey bring humanitarian and international issues into a clear picture. Both of these books are in our church library.
Rev. Paul Jeffrey is a photojournalist for The United Methodist Church. He lived in Latin America for two decades and blogs at www.kairosphotos.com His pictures in the book Food Fight will touch your heart.
Chris Herlinger’s work for humanitarian groups is published in Episcopal Relief and Development, Christian Century, Harvard Divinity Bulletin, and many others. He worked as the senior writer for Church World Service.
If you have any concern for the hungry, you will find this book both disturbing and hopeful. We can make a difference.
